Auto Transport to Greater Jacksonville, Florida
The Jacksonville Metropolitan Statistical Area, commonly referred to as Metro Jacksonville or Greater Jacksonville, is a metropolitan area located in the U.S. state of Florida. It is anchored, naturally, by Jacksonville, the largest city by population and by area in the state. Greater Jacksonville is currently home to a population of over 1.4 million residents and spans five counties. Oddly, though Jacksonville proper is the largest city in the state, the Jacksonville metro area is only the fourth-largest in Florida and the 40th-largest, by population, in the country. Nonetheless, auto transport to Greater Jacksonville is quite popular due to the city’s size and fair weather throughout the year, making it easier than ever to ship to or from the metro area.
Really, car shippers like to run routes into and out of big cities with lots of people and, preferably, with large metro areas surrounding them. Staying close to densely populated areas means they can make more money on a route by doing less driving, which increases their profit margins and allows them to lower their prices to their customers. Lowering prices is important because the industry is so competitive; if they can run a route where they can pickup and deliver multiple vehicles along the way, and then more still when they get to the city itself, they stand to make more money in a faster amount of time while keeping their prices competitive. In this, auto transport to Greater Jacksonville is generally easier to find, faster to book and cheaper to complete for both you and your carrier.
What really helps when you’re trying to find auto transport to Greater Jacksonville – aside from its size – is the fact that it’s pretty easy to get into and out of. Jacksonville sits along two major interstates in I-10 and I-95, with the former running east-west across the southern U.S. and the latter running north-south along the east coast. This gives carriers access to a number of auto transportation hubs around the country, and it makes it faster and easier for them to get to and from Jacksonville and its surrounding bedroom communities. We recommend speaking to an agent about where exactly in Metro Jacksonville you’re shipping, as they can give you more personalized information, but on the whole you shouldn’t have many problems getting to or from the are.
