Auto Transport from Boston to Sacramento
Boston is the largest city in the state of Massachusetts as well as the capital of the state. Sacramento is the capital of California and the sixth-largest city in California. And together, they are two popular car transportation areas in their respective locations.
Boston is probably the most popular auto shipping location in all of New England. Sacramento, on the other hand, pales to such California cities as Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco. However, auto transport from Boston to Sacramento should not be hard to find, considering the size of both cities and their locations. Read on to learn more.
Some things to know about auto transport from Boston to Sacramento
To start, both cities sit right along major interstate highways. Most carriers will take I-90 out of Boston and head west through New York State and the Great Lakes. Then they’ll probably catch I-80 outside of Chicago, as I-80 runs straight into Sacramento from Chicago.
So really, for most carriers it’s a straight shot out of Boston. Some may take a more convoluted route, but that would add time to your shipment. However, it may not cost as much. Think about it: if a carrier opts to travel south to, say, I-10 out of Boston, and then west along I-10 to L.A. before heading north on I-5, that’s going to put days on your shipment. And that isn’t okay for some, unless the price is lower.
This is why most carriers will just take I-90 to I-80 and then I-80 to Sacramento. You have to understand, though, that even along the fastest route it’s still 3,000 miles (3,009, actually, according to Google Maps). That’s a solid seven days of travel time and maybe more if the carrier has lots of places to stop.
And there’s lots of potential stops on the I-90/I-80 route. Carriers have cities such as Albany, Rochester, Buffalo, Cleveland, Chicago, Des Moines, Omaha, Salt Lake City and Reno to stop it. So if you’re interested in your carrier’s itinerary to try to figure out how long transit will be, talk to them. Otherwise, expect anywhere from one to two weeks from pickup to delivery.
