Auto Shipping to Nashville, Tennessee
Nashville is a city in and the county seat of Davidson County, in the U.S. state of Tennessee, though Nashville’s borders are co-terminous with Davidson County and they are actually a consolidated city-county. It is also the capital of the entire state and the second-largest city by population in the state, with a population of over 658,000 residents. Nashville was first settled in 1779 and was named after Francis Nash, a Revolutionary War hero. As a strategic port on the Cumberland River, Nashville quickly gained prominence as a trading center and a launching point for settlers to travel further west. Today, Nashville is a major city, anchoring its own metropolitan area, and is known as Music City, as Nashville is a prominent area for aspiring musicians, particularly country musicians.
As mentioned, Nashville anchors its own metropolitan area, conveniently known as the Nashville Metropolitan Statistical Area. The Nashville metro area includes thirteen total counties and is home to over 1.76 million residents, making it the largest metro area in the state. Nashville may be the second-largest city in Tennessee, but its metro area is large and an important shipping and distribution area in the entire region. As such, Nashville is a fairly popular car shipping destination among both customers and carriers, which generally results in faster pickup and delivery as well as lower prices, at least on most major routes.
Nashville has three different major interstates running through it including I-24, I-40, and I-65. The first is a smaller interstate that allows carriers access to Chattanooga to the southeast, as well as I-75, and I-57 to the northwest. I-40 is a major east-west interstate that services most of the major areas of the southern U.S. including much of northern Texas, and I-65 is a major route through Alabama that not only connects to the largest cities both north and south of Tennessee but also other major east-west interstates including I-10, I-20, I-40, I-70 and I-80. Auto transport carriers like running through major cities via major interstates, and Nashville has both of those in spades, which really only helps the cause when it comes to saving time and money on your car shipping services.
Nashville sits in a humid continental climate zone, which usually results in hot, humid summer and mild-to-cold winters. Spring, summer and fall are generally going to be the best times of the year to ship into or out of Nashville, but even during the winter months you shouldn’t have too many problems. Auto shipping companies don’t like to run routes through snowy areas or through regions that see a lot of winter weather; it’s too easy for shippers to damage their cargo or their trucks on icy or snowy routes, so they avoid them when they can. Luckily, Nashville sees only mild winter weather, with scant snowfall during the winter; this tends to result in faster and cheaper prices as well.
On the whole, Nashville is one of the most popular vehicle shipping areas in the region, so finding a carrier at a good price shouldn’t be all that difficult.
