Auto Shipping to Albuquerque
Albuquerque is the largest city in the state of New Mexico, and is one of the largest in the surrounding area. It’s a popular auto transport location but only because a lot of carriers run along I-40 through Arizona, New Mexico and Texas, servicing much of the southwest. On the whole not a lot of people ship to or from Albuquerque, which normally would present problems with availability of a carrier. Despite this, though, finding a carrier in your area that will be willing to run to Albuquerque shouldn’t be too difficult because of its location along several major highways that service other, larger, more popular metro areas. Carriers like to run routes to or from areas that they can easily get to or from and that plenty of other people are moving in and out of, so Albuquerque being right smack in the middle of New Mexico and right along several major auto transport routes really helps the cause.

Albuquerque is really the transportation capital of the state of New Mexico as it is the only city that both I-25 and I-40 – the only two interstates in New Mexico – pass through (they actually intersect in the heart of the city’s downtown area). As such, any routes through New Mexico will pass through Albuquerque, which means auto transporters have an area that they can stop at to refuel and get new loads. You’d be surprised at how important this is in the car shipping industry, particularly in an area as sparsely populated as New Mexico and, really, much of the American Southwest between western California and eastern Texas. Both interstates are popular transportation routes, though I-40 much more so than I-25. I-25 is valuable due to its route through Denver, to the north, but on the whole it is not nearly as heavily traveled as the various east-west interstates it connects to because I-25 runs through fewer metro areas and has more swaths of little-to-no population centers along it.
