Across the Map: Kentucky Car Shipping Services
Kentucky is a state located just west of Virginia and West Virginia and was actually a part of Virginia until it broke off and achieved statehood in 1792. Kentucky has long been a major producer of tobacco and hemp and the center of the state to this day has some of the most fertile soil in the United States, which made Kentucky quite wealthy during the formative years of the United States and, really, until the end of the 19th century. Slavery was huge in Kentucky during the antebellum years of U.S. history, with Louisville being one of the most lucrative slave trading markets in the United States due to its location along the Ohio River. Today Kentucky is rather rural, with exceptions being Louisville and Lexington. The eastern portion of the state is made up of part of the Appalachian Mountain Range; it was the discovery of the Cumberland Gap in northern Kentucky that ultimately led to the settlement of the area.

Kentucky, being so rural, is not that popular of an auto transport location, all things considered. It helps when it comes to finding shippers running in and out of Kentucky that it has several major interstates running through it, but its main east-west interstate, I-64, isn’t heavily traveled mainly because of the fact it’s so short. Originating in Saint Louis, Missouri, it runs east through central Illinois, southern Indiana and northern Kentucky before heading into West Virginia and all the way to the coast of Virginia, terminating at Virginia Beach. This can be a useful interstate but usually the north-south interstates like I-65 and I-75 are going to be more popular because they are longer and allow access to more areas of the country than I-64. Typically sticking to the major cities in Kentucky will net you the lowest car shipping prices, but as it isn’t the easiest state to get to or from for auto transporters you should expect your booking-to-pickup waiting period to be somewhat longer than the standard pickup windows car shippers generally give.
