Auto Shipping to Meridian, Idaho
Meridian is a city in Ada County, in the U.S. state of Ohio. It is home to a population of over 85,000 residents, making it one of the faster-growing areas in Idaho, and is a part of the Boise, Idaho Metropolitan Statistical Area, the largest metro area in the state. First established in 1891, Meridian was incorporated in 1903 and quickly grew into a dairy-producing town, mostly thanks to the local creamery sustained by local farmers. During the depths of the Great Depression the creamery saw the town through the worst of it, though today it is no longer standing. Meridian today is a suburban city and is the fastest-growing in Idaho by population, with an 81.5% increase since the 2000 Census.
The state of Idaho is not known for its popular car shipping locations, and Meridian is no exception. Boise is perhaps the most popular area in the state to ship to or from, but much of it outside the Boise metro area is rural and there are few ways to get into or out of the region, which makes it more expensive for carriers to run routes into and out of Idaho. Auto shipping to Meridian should be easier to find than other places in Idaho, though, considering it is the third-largest city by population in the state and because it has been rapidly expanding in recent years. You shouldn’t have a hard time finding transportation services to or from Meridian, at least in comparison to other parts of Idaho, but it will likely cost more and take a bit longer than shipments of a similar distance along more popular routes.
Meridian sits right along Interstate 84, which is the main interstate highway through the Boise metro area. I-84 sees a bit of car transport traffic, but it’s not nearly as popular as other east-west interstates due to the fact that it’s route is rather short – it runs east from Portland, Oregon, through Idaho and into Salt Lake City. This short route doesn’t pass through many major cities, but it does connect the cities it does run through to other major interstates, notably I-5 in Portland and I-80 and I-15 in Salt Lake City. While this may not be the most popular route for carriers, plenty will make the trip if you are trying to find auto shipping to Meridian, albeit for the right price.
