Preparing for Hurricane Irma September 07, 2017
How We are Preparing For Hurricane Irma
Direct Connect Auto Transport’s primary call center is in South Florida, directly in the projected path of Irma
We are letting all of our customers know to be prepared for delays with logistics and transportation.
- Delays will be guaranteed if your car is being transported through Florida, due to evacuation orders.
- Transports in other parts of the country are likely to remain on schedule.
We are relocating core personnel north but in the event of power and Internet outages, our communications will be delayed.
How to Reach us
Our office handles about 1,500 calls per day, managing logistics for hundreds of transports each week. If you need to reach Direct Connect, use our main line.
If all lines are busy, please leave a voicemail and your call will be returned as quickly as possible, even over the weekend.
Transports in Florida
As of now, highways are severely backed up due to traffic from evacuation routes. If you are in Florida and are looking to pickup or deliver your car, expect at least a 2 day delay until major roads are cleared by government or municipal order. Although Florida is in a state of inclement weather, we will still fulfill all of your orders.
Transports in Houston
In the Houston area, the devastation that occurred from Hurricane Irma set back the Houston auto transportation companies. After Hurricane Harvey a Houston area delivery company was back to work on the Thursday following the storm. Only a few routes were available initially, however a gradual increase of workflow since then. Most areas are back on track.
Reception at the call center will be spotty Sunday through Friday, and we may even have complete power outages. We will deliver to all areas that are accessible but not to the greater Houston area, which is closed as of now. Our delivery schedules are based on: weather status, flooding, damage and municipal restrictions.
