Auto Shipping to Santa Fe, New Mexico
Santa Fe is a city in as well as the county seat of Santa Fe County, in the U.S. state of New Mexico. It is also the capital of the state. Santa Fe is currently home to a population of over 69,200 residents, making it the fourth-largest city in New Mexico, and is the anchor of the Santa Fe Metropolitan Statistical Area, which spans all of Santa Fe County, and is a part of the larger Albuquerque-Santa Fe-Las Vegas, NM Combined Statistical Area. Santa Fe is the oldest state capital in the United States, as it was founded in 1610 by the Spanish, and it is also the oldest city in New Mexico. Santa Fe means “holy faith” in Spanish.
As mentioned, Santa Fe anchors its own metropolitan area, the Santa Fe Metropolitan Statistical Area, which covers all of Santa Fe County. As the capital of the state it sees a fair amount of car shipping traffic, but auto shipping to Santa Fe is not as popular among customers as shipping to or from Albuquerque or Las Cruces is, mostly because of its size. Albuquerque is often the most popular area in the state due to its central location and ease-of-access; luckily, Santa Fe only sits about 60 miles north of Albuquerque, so auto shippers can easily get to or from the city without having to go too far off their established routes.
Something else that really helps the cause is the fact that Santa Fe is relatively easy to get to. New Mexico is known for its desert vistas and vast swaths of uninhabited land, and there are few major cities in the state. Because of how few major cities there are, there aren’t a lot of major interstate highways that service it either; that said, I-25 is the main interstate that services the Santa Fe area. It’s not the only interstate – I-40 runs east-west through Albuquerque, and I-10 runs east-west through Las Cruces to the far south. Auto transporters can easily use I-25 to get from Las Cruces or Albuquerque, and also to get back to those cities – and the interstates they are running their routes on. The city’s size, and ease of access, should make it about as expensive to ship to or from as Albuquerque, though you will want to discuss this and any other details about auto shipping to Santa Fe with a live agent.
