Car Transport to Chattanooga, TennesseeChattanooga is a city in as well as the county seat of Hamilton County, in the U.S. state of Tennessee. It is currently home to a population of over 167,600 total residents, making it the fourth-largest city by population in the entire state. Located in southeastern Tennessee, Chattanooga is only a few hours’ drive from several other major southern cities, including Atlanta, Knoxville, Nashville, Huntsville and Birmingham, making it a natural logistics and warehousing area. Surrounded by densely forested mountains and ridges, Chattanooga is known as the Scenic City, and car transport to Chattanooga is often easy to find and book given its size, location, proximity to other major metro areas, and its popularity among customers.

Auto shippers, as you likely know, like to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas because that’s where the majority of their customers tend to be. Chattanooga is also the anchor of its own metro area, the Chattanooga, Tennessee Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is home to over 520,000 residents and spans six counties across two states. As such, its not hard to find car transport to Chattanooga or the surrounding area, and is even easier thanks to the other major southern cities that surround it. Auto shippers can easily run a route into Chattanooga before taking off for Atlanta, or they can stop in Nashville and Knoxville and then Chattanooga on their way east. This leads to more loads on their truck, more deliveries where they get paid, and more competitive pricing as a result.

Really, the biggest help, aside from the city’s size, is its location and proximity to other major cities. The city itself sits right along I-24, which wends its way southeast from roughly St. Louis, Missouri. I-24 is a good route because it links to other major interstates in the area including I-57, I-59 and I-75, the last of which is heavily traveled as it runs from Tampa, Florida north through Atlanta and other major cities before ending in Detroit. This gives carriers easy access to Chattanooga and its surrounding area, and since the industry is so competitive they often lower their prices as a result, since the route actually saves them money in comparison to more rural shipments along surface streets or smaller state highways.

Ship a Recreational VehicleWhile it’s not the most common question, there are always people out there that are trying to ship a recreational vehicle, and it’s something that can be difficult to do depending on what exactly it is you’re trying to ship. To start, the term “recreational vehicle” is fairly open to interpretation; an RV can be one of several different things, including campers, motorhomes, tent trailers, and even things like boats – really, anything that you can enjoy some recreation in. In this blog post we’re going to be focusing on the motorhome, the traditional recreational vehicle and often the first thing that comes to mind when someone says recreational vehicle or RV.

But to answer the question posed in the title, yes, you can usually ship a recreational vehicle, though as we said how it is shipped will depend on how large it is. Small RV’s can usually be shipped on a flatbed carrier, but at a point even a flatbed hauler won’t be able to handle a recreational vehicle, so shipping one can get tricky. Most shippers will first ask why you don’t want to simply drive it; remember, we’re talking about RV’s that can move under their own power, not tent trailers that are hauled behind a truck. That said, you’ll probably need to be specific in terms of what exactly you’re looking to ship, so try to have the length, width, height and weight of your RV, as well as its current condition, on hand when you start getting quotes.

If you’re trying to ship a recreational vehicle, take a minute to fill out our online auto shipping quote request form. Chances are you’ll have to put “other” into the quote form, but that’s okay – when you ship something as large as a recreational vehicle, it’s important to speak to a live agent to give them all the particulars. The more information they have, the more accurate a quote they will give you, which is why it’s important to have that on-hand when you start your search. Most every company will be able to get it shipped for you, but don’t be surprised if it takes a bit longer than the average to get it picked up or to even find a carrier that can do it. Chances are, the number of carriers on the road that are able to handle something as large as an RV are going to have to charge more and it will take longer for them to get to you – they likely won’t be in your area at the time.

So, take a minute and fill out our free online quote form. It’s completely free from start to finish, but it will net you multiple free quotes in your email inbox from some of the best auto shippers in the industry.

Classic Car Transport ServicesWinter has slowly given way to spring, and soon summer will be peeking over the horizon, which means that classic car transport services are going to see an increase in demand. A lot of people like to wait to ship their old convertibles or sports cars until the weather is nice across the country, which makes sense – classic cars can get expensive, especially if they’re hard to find or relatively rare, and making sure that it stays in fair weather even if you’re shipping across the country usually is a good way to protect the vehicle. But when you’re on the hunt for classic car transport services, something you need to keep in mind is the fact that some classic cars are going to need more protection than others, which is why we’re talking about them today in this blog post.

Auto transport carriers will ship just about anything, but the majority of trucks on the road are of the open variety. Open auto shippers expose the vehicles they ship to the elements on a daily basis, and this can be to the detriment of some vehicle owners who don’t know the difference. When you’re on the hunt for classic car transport services, price should be secondary to service – in other words, don’t sell your vehicle short and use the wrong type of carrier. Many classic cars may be classic, but they aren’t worth much anymore; vehicles depreciate starting the moment you turn the key and start it up. Some classic cars retain their value over long enough periods, as they were hard to find or rare to begin with, but you need to know what you’re shipping and make sure that you get the right carrier – if it’s old and valuable, chances are enclosed will be better even if it’s more expensive.

Most every single auto shipper in the industry today can and will offer classic car transport services, but you’ll want to talk to an agent to learn more. Different companies will have different policies in regards to how they handle a “standard” classic car, and will have widely differing opinions on how to ship the more expensive classics out there. Keep in mind that if your classic car does not start or run, a special winch will need to be required to load and unload it. Classic cars cannot be shipped with parts inside them, either, and you can learn more about why by speaking to your agent (as there are several different reasons).

However, if you’re interested in classic car transport services, and are trying to find a company to ship your vehicle, take a minute or two and fill out our free online auto shipping quote request form. It shouldn’t take you more than a minute or two to fill out and submit, but it will net you multiple free quotes in your email inbox from some of the best auto shippers in the industry.

Household Moving to Memphis, TennesseeMemphis is a city located in the U.S. state of Tennessee that is currently home to over 653,400 total residents, making it the largest city in the state. It is the county seat of Shelby County and is the anchor of the Memphis, Tennessee Metropolitan Statistical Area, the largest metro are in the state. One of the largest cities in the entire region, it is not surprising that household moving to Memphis has picked up in recent years, and what is perhaps even more surprising is the fact that the city has achieved its size despite being the youngest of Tennessee’s major cities – it was founded in 1819, well after other comparable cities such as Nashville and Knoxville.

Because of its size and sprawl, it’s also not surprising that household moving to Memphis is fairly easy to find and affordable to book along major, popular routes. Household moving companies like to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas because that’s where their customers are – being able to stop in a city, deliver one customers’ goods before picking up another load and then moving on to the next city to do it all again makes things a lot more cost-effective for just about any logistics company. Moving is a bit trickier, as companies have to take longer and also take better care of their cargo, which does tend to increase price and transit time. That said moving tends to be cheaper into and out of big cities, so you shouldn’t have much trouble finding household moving to Memphis or anywhere else in the country.

Memphis may be the youngest major city in Tennessee, but it is a popular shipping location, and moving companies have seen an influx in demand for services both to and from the city in recent years. If you are trying to move to or from an older area of the city, one that does not as many modern roads or upgraded sidewalks, it may be hard for an interstate moving van to actually get to your door to pickup or deliver your goods. If this is the case, your moving company will often contract with a local mover that has a fleet of smaller trucks that can navigate tight areas. This is usually going to cost a bit more, but often not too much, and what’s nice is that your movers will let you know what your options are and give you some choices so you can try to save time or money.

Auto Shipping to Erie, PennsylvaniaErie is a city located in Erie County, in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. Home to a population of over 101,700 residents, Erie is the fourth-largest city in Pennsylvania by population and is also the county seat of Erie County. Erie is also the anchor of its own metropolitan area, the Erie Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is currently home to a population of over 280,000 residents and spans all of Erie County. The second-largest city in western Pennsylvania, after Pittsburgh, auto shipping to Erie is not all that difficult to find during most times of the year, but we do recommend you continue reading to learn more about shipping to or from the city.

Auto transporters like to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas because that’s where the majority of their customers tend to be. Being able to quickly get from one pickup or delivery location within a city is greatly beneficial; it helps them lower  their transit times from one location to the next and usually helps them to keep their prices lower and more competitive. Auto transporters save time and money by running routes into and out of major cities and metro areas, and Erie is no different during most times of the year. Winter months can drop buckets of snow on the region, which can affect shipping times, so during the fall and winter it’s probably a good idea to watch the weather reports.

Erie sits on the southern shores of Lake Erie, one of the Great Lakes, which is on one hand a boon and the other a detriment to finding auto shipping to Erie. Car shippers like to run their routes into and out of big cities, it is true, but it really makes a difference if those places are easy to access via the interstate highway system. Luckily, most big cities in the U.S. that attract the attention of car shipping companies are large enough to warrant inclusion along the interstate highways, and Erie is no different. It sits right along I-90, a fairly important east-west interstate through the northern U.S. Some carriers may not travel the whole way, but being able to access many other major markets along with Erie is a big help and often can keep prices more competitive.
