Auto Shipping Services to Boston
Boston is the capital and the largest city within the U.S. state of Massachusetts, and also sits as the county seat of Suffolk County. Home to a population of over 646,000 residents, Boston is the largest city in the New England region of the United States and it is currently the 24th-largest city by population in the country. Boston sits on the Shawmut Peninsula, which was much smaller when Boston was first founded; through land reclamation and municipal annexation, the city of Boston was able to grow beyond the original boundaries of the peninsula and today is considered a world city. Boston is known as a global city of innovation; home to numerous institutions of higher learning, the city has been at the forefront of education and the growth of the United States almost since its founding.
Boston, as you may have guessed, anchors the Boston Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is a metro area home to over 4.5 million residents and the tenth-largest by population in the entire country. Boston also serves as the anchor of the Boston Combined Statistical Area, also known as Greater Boston and home to over 7.6 million residents. Auto shippers prefer to run routes into and out of major cities that are surrounded by major metropolitan areas, connected to each other by major interstate highways. Auto transport companies make the most money on routes that connect the largest cities together, so you should find good prices almost anytime of the year when shipping a vehicle to or from Boston.
When shipping into or out of Boston it’s important to know what common routes carriers will be taking into and out of the city. Usually auto transporters want to stick to major interstate highways – that’s where the customers tend to be, and interstates provide routes through the largest areas in each state more often than not. In Boston this is exactly the case; the city sees several major highways run through it including I-90 I-93 and I-95, the first of which is an east-west interstate and the latter two of which are north-south in their orientation. With I-90 running coast-to-cast and I-95 running from the northeastern tip of Maine down to Miami, Florida, the routes available to carriers within Boston allows them to easily get from and to many different places in the country quickly and without much hassle; this in turn helps keep prices lower and pickup times faster for you.
During the winter months, snow and ice can blanket the city, which can cause problems and delays in vehicle shipping services. Auto transporters prefer to avoid winter weather – it can wreak havoc with their routes and can cause damage to vehicles that are being shipped, not to mention the hazards that snow and ice pose to their own trucks, which in and of themselves are usually worth six figures. This can make auto transport into or out of Boston more expensive during the winter, and likely more expensive; during the spring and summer, though, is usually when the prices even out and you can likely find some great deals in the summer, when there is much higher demand for auto transport into and out of the city and the weather is more permitting.
