Auto Transport to Jackson, MS
Jackson is a city in as well as one of two county seats in Hinds County, Mississippi; it also serves as the capital of the state and is also the largest city by population in the state of Mississippi. Home to over 173,500 Jackson anchors the Jackson Metropolitan Statistical Area, home to over 539,000 residents. Located on the Pearl River, the city grew in size after being selected as Mississippi’s state capital, largely thanks to river commerce at the time.
Since the end of World War II the city has been the largest in the state, and Jackson today is known for its many nightclubs and its penchant for good music. It is the home of several famous musicians and the motto of the city is “Jackson, Mississippi: City with Soul.”
As mentioned, Jackson anchors a larger metropolitan area, which is good when it comes to finding auto transport services to or from the city. Though the population of the larger metro area isn’t in the millions – in fact, it’s a little over half of that right now – it’s still a pretty large area to ship a vehicle to or from, and as the largest city in Mississippi it’s one of the most popular areas in the state to ship a vehicle from and to.
If you’re shipping to or from Jackson, this makes things a lot easier for you, since you’ll likely find lower prices and faster pickup, transit and delivery windows as a result – of course, this does depend on the other city you’re shipping from or to.
Jackson is a central city within the state of Mississippi, and as the state capital naturally it is one of the easier cities to access from other parts of the state and the country. There are two main interstate highways that run through Jackson, with perhaps the more popular of the two being I-20, which runs east-west through the city and central Mississippi in general. I-55 also runs through the city on a north-south orientation.
These two interstates help keep prices into and out of Jackson lower on account of the fact that auto shippers can quickly and easily get into and out of the city without having to adjust their routes or compensate for lack of easy access. This in turn helps keep your prices competitive and your pickup and delivery windows reasonable.
With summer temperatures often reaching into the low-to-mid 90’s during the day and even winter temperatures staying in the upper 50’s, chances are you won’t have to worry much about the weather affecting your shipment. In many areas of the country, snow and ice can cause problems and delays for auto transporters as they tend to make for hazardous driving conditions.
While snow has been seen in Jackson before, it’s more hot and humid than cold and snowy, which means that most times of the year the routes through Jackson are going to be open and clear, particularly in the winter. This should help keep prices lower and pickup times out of Jackson faster during the winter, and will likely help you keep your prices lower in the summer as well.
