Auto Shipping from New York City to Chicago

Auto Shipping from New York City to Chicago
Chicago, IL

New York City and Chicago are two of the largest cities in the United States both by population and total area. Because of this, it’s not surprising that they’re two of the most popular auto transport locations in the nation.

But what about auto shipping from New York City to Chicago?

There are a number of things that you should know about it. For instance, did you know that most carriers can’t even get into the downtown areas of those cities? They’re too big, they can’t fit, so many carriers will have a flatbed truck go to your house to pick your car up. This, though, adds money to the shipment, which can be problematic if you’re shipping on a budget.

What to expect when shipping from New York City to Chicago

First off, if you don’t want to shell out money to have a flatbed pick your car up, you should move your pickup location. And when we say move it, we mean you should agree to meet your carrier somewhere that their truck can actually fit.

Terminal shipping can be a good option when you’re trying to find auto shipping from New York City to Chicago. Getting to a terminal in the New York area may be easier for a carrier, especially if it’s that or trying to get to your door. Otherwise, talk to the driver of the truck and see if there’s a place he knows where you could meet. It could save you time and, perhaps more importantly, money on your shipment.

You should expect slightly higher prices out of New York City than Chicago, too, especially during the fall. This is because snowbird season ramps up during the fall months, particularly late August and into September and October.

What this does to the industry is it shifts the focus of carriers from coast-to-coast routes to north-south routes. Lines from New England to Florida are particularly popular thanks to people who own winter homes down in the south. More carriers will be willing to go to Chicago than further west most likely. This is because Chicago sits a bit south of another snowbird location in Wisconsin.
