Auto Transport to Augusta, Maine
Augusta is a city in as well as the county seat of Kennebec County, in the U.S. state of Maine. It is home to a population of just 19,100 residents, though it is the capital of the entire state. It is actually the third-smallest state capital, after Montpelier, Vermont and Pierre, South Dakota. As such, finding auto transport to Augusta may be difficult. Car transporters like to run routes to and from big cities with large, sprawling metropolitan areas. However, Augusta is neither a big city nor does it have a sprawling metropolitan area.
Is finding auto transport to Augusta hard?
It can be. As we mentioned, auto transporters want to run routes through big, sprawling cities with large metropolitan areas. Since Augusta has a small population and anchors a micropolitan area and not a metropolitan one. This is a big distinction, as micropolitan areas are less than 50,000 people strong. So carriers have a harder time finding loads into and out of Augusta, and this is really why it can be so expensive. If a car carrier can’t find enough loads on a route, the route ends up losing them money. So they avoid that by traveling more high-profile routes. If a customer needs services on a less-popular route, prices tend to increase so carriers can still make enough money to keep their trucks on the road.
Because that’s the most important thing for a carrier – being able to get to the next town. A carrier makes their money by moving loads, and if they can’t cover costs like overhead and maintenance then they aren’t going to be driving around working. Small towns can make it harder for carriers to get from one place to the next. But not all is lost! So long as that town or small city sits along a major interstate, chances are a carrier can get there no problem. Augusta sits right along I-95, which is the main interstate through Maine. While it doesn’t see much traffic that far north, it helps a lot more than if it weren’t on I-95 at all. It will help keep your prices lower and your transit times faster, on the whole.
