Auto Shipping Routes: New York City to Los Angeles
New York City to Los Angeles Auto Transport Services
As you probably know, New York City and Los Angeles are the two largest cities in the United States by population. As such, they tend to see more than a few vehicles shipping to or from them at any given time. You would think that New York City to Los Angeles auto transport services would be easy to find, and on the whole they are. However, depending on the time of year, things can become more complex thanks to the way the industry works. On this particular route, New York City to Los Angeles, different factors come to play when the fall shipping season comes along.
Some insider information about shipping from NYC to LA
For starters, snowbird season kicks up around late August and into September, which tends to draw some of the focus away from cross-country routes. Snowbirds are simply people that like to move south for the winter before going back north in the spring. They split their time between northern and southern homes, to get the best out of the weather in each region. That’s understandable, and they’re a big boon for car shippers during the slower times of the year. But this results in many routes, including New York City to Los Angeles auto transport services, being harder to find. Carriers switch to more north-south based routes, which decreases supply along routes going cross-country.
What this does is results in higher prices on routes heading west during the fall. It’s because there’s less demand for New York City to Los Angeles auto transport services, and carriers need to go where the demand is. Therefore, in the fall, many of those carriers are going to be charging more for east-west routes. You need to prepare for this accordingly.

Keep in mind that most carriers won’t be able to pickup or deliver within the downtown areas of either city. This is because neither is really built to be able to accommodate such a large truck. Therefore, most of the time you’ll need to arrange with the carrier to pickup and deliver your vehicle somewhere nearby. Luckily, they both have sprawling metro areas that shouldn’t be hard to get to. You can read more about both cities, too.
