Auto Shipping to Essex, Vermont
Essex is a town, not a city, located in Chittenden County, in the U.S. state of Vermont. It is currently home to a population of over 19,500 residents and is the anchor of the Essex, Vermont Metropolitan Statistical Area, which covers all of Chittenden County. Essex is the largest town in the state and the second-largest municipality, after Burlington, though its size belies that statistic a bit; the town, despite being the largest in the state, is still a town, and a relatively small one at that. This makes it harder to find auto shipping to Essex, especially when you consider that it sits in northwestern Vermont, far from the major transportation hubs of the United States.
Auto transporters like to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas, as that’s where the majority of their customers tend to be. Being able to pickup and deliver multiple vehicles in a single day does wonders for their wallet, but when they provide services for auto shipping to Essex, Vermont, they sacrifice that stability and also the larger customer base. There are not many customers trying to ship into or out of Essex, and with the city being close to the northern edge of the country, there’s nowhere for a carrier to go without simply turning around and going back the way they came. This results in higher prices and, often, longer wait times for pickup, as it can be harder to find a carrier to run that route.
Auto shipping to Essex is made a bit easier by its access to I-89, which while not a major north-south interstate is still an interstate highway and thus accessible from other interstate highways that, in turn, connect to major auto transport locations. Car carriers can use this to quickly get to and from Essex, which they often will, and it does help make things a bit cheaper in the long run. During the winter months is likely when you’ll have the hardest time finding a carrier, as Essex often sees heavy snowfall that can close roads and cause serious problems for carriers. Talk to an agent to learn more about inclement weather and how it can affect your prices and services.
