Auto Transport to Hattiesburg, Mississippi
Hattiesburg is a city in as well as the county seat of Forrest County, in the U.S. state of Mississippi. Some portions of the city extend into nearby Lamar County. It is currently home to a population of over 47,500 total residents, making it the third-largest city by population in the state of Mississippi. Hattiesburg is also the anchor of the Hattiesburg, Mississippi Metropolitan Statistical Area, which spans three counties and has a population of over 123,000 total residents. The city was originally a transportation and logistics hub in its infancy, and was incorporated in 1884 with a population of 400 residents and has grown slowly but steadily since. It is today one of the fastest-growing cities in Mississippi thanks to its diverse economy, strong neighborhoods and its proximity to other cities in the state, notably Jackson and Meridian.
Auto transport to Hattiesburg will likely be more difficult to find than if you were shipping a car to Jackson, which happens to be the largest city in the state. At the same time, though, the price increase will likely be minimal and will depend on the route your carrier has to run from pickup to delivery. Auto shippers want to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas because that’s where the majority of their customers tend to be. By staying close to densely-populated areas, they can pickup and deliver more vehicles in a smaller span of time, often within a day or two. This means lower prices, faster transit times and more competitive pricing and options for you.
The city also sits right along Interstate 59, which may not be the most heavily-traveled interstate in Mississippi but it does see its fair share of traffic. Auto shippers want to run routes that keep them on major interstate highways, as interstates usually run through the largest cities in a given area and connect the largest cities in the country together on one easy-to-travel, high-speed road. This helps carriers keep their fuel costs down, as it’s more efficient to keep on the interstates (same goes for personal vehicles too, as you likely know). By keeping fuel costs down, carriers don’t have to pay as much for overhead, which means lower prices for customers. Some areas in Mississippi, as mentioned, may be cheaper to ship to or from, but auto transport to Hattiesburg shouldn’t be hard to find regardless.
