Auto Shipping to Sterling Heights, Michigan
Sterling Heights is a city located in Macomb County, Michigan. Currently home to over 129,000 residents, Sterling Heights is a major component of Metropolitan Detroit and is the second-largest suburb of Detroit, the fourth-largest city in the state of Michigan, and is also one of the main suburbs of Detroit proper, as it sits roughly 15 miles north of the downtown section of the largest city in the state of Michigan. This gives residents of Sterling Heights easy access to a rather vibrant nightlife while still being in a more suburban area of Detroit. As a commuter city – that is, a bedroom city where many people live while working in the city proper, in this instance the situation being many people live in Sterling Heights but work in Detroit.
Despite being a major bedroom city of Detroit, Sterling Heights is inaccessible via the Interstate Highway System, as it does not sit along any major interstates. There are interstate highways that link the Detroit metro area to the rest of the country, and as Detroit is considered the “Motor City” because it is the home of the three largest automobile manufacturers in the United States, it’s not all that surprising; what’s nice about it too is that it helps connect Sterling Heights to the rest of the country too. Traveling to or from Sterling Heights requires auto shippers to take surface streets or state highways, so it’s really up to them whether or not they’re going to go there. If they don’t, it may be easier to move your pickup or delivery location to Detroit, or even further south considering how far north Michigan is; this may save you money or time on your pickup or delivery.
The reason why is because auto transporters don’t like to ship to hard-to-reach areas or areas that are prone to extreme weather; this includes areas like Michigan, including Detroit, because or how far north they are and how much it can snow come winter. Make sure to discuss your options with an auto transport representative; as a real expert on where the trucks are coming from and to, as well as real-world conditions in various parts of the country and knowledge of where people are moving from and too they should be able to get you some good information and help you get your shipment started.
