Auto Shipping to Springfield, Missouri
Springfield is a city in as well as the county seat of Greene County, in the U.S. state of Missouri. It is the third-largest city by population in the state, and is currently home to over 164,100 total residents. Springfield is also the anchor of the Springfield-Branson, MO Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is home to over 537,000 total residents. The metro area spans seven counties. The city today is known primarily for its tourism, retail, healthcare and education services, though there is also manufacturing and some financial firms in the city as well. Auto shipping to Springfield, despite the city’s size, is usually a bit more expensive than if you were to ship to other, larger cities in Missouri, but Springfield does sit within a few hundred miles of some of the largest cities and metro areas in the Midwest, which does help tremendously.
Car transporters want to run routes into and out of major metropolitan areas and big cities with lots of people because that’s where their customers are. Customers in rural areas are few and far between, and routes through metro areas do not make near as much money as those that take carriers through those big cities. The main reason why is access – with big cities, there are lots of people, which means more potential customers, which means more opportunities to get paid for their work in a single day. Carriers take payment when they deliver a vehicle, so if they can deliver two or more in one area – and also pick another one or two up on their way out – they stand to make double the profit in half the time. This makes auto shipping to Springfield cheaper more often than not, as it does to or from most bigger cities.
It really helps, too, that Springfield sits right along I-44, a main route from Oklahoma City to St. Louis by way of Springfield and other cities on the way. It also connects I-35 in Oklahoma City with I-55, I-64 and I-70 in St. Louis, giving carriers a number of different ways out of the area. Auto shippers want to stick to major interstate highways when they are planning and running their routes; this gives them access to a high-speed network of roadways that connect the largest cities together. They can get across the country, with pickup and delivery services along the way, in as little as 10-14 days, which helps keep transit times and also prices lower for customers. This also makes auto shipping to Springfield more affordable and easier to find, as it’s right on the way.
