Auto Transport to Metro Orlando
As you likely know, Orlando is a major city in the state of Florida, and one of its largest, at least by population. An inland city, Orlando is located in east-central Florida and is the anchor of the Orlando, Florida Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is home to over 2.1 million residents. Orlando proper – which is the anchor of all of metro Orlando – is the fifth-largest city in the state of Florida, which is rather surprising considering its metropolitan area is the second-largest in the state of Florida and is the 20th largest metro area in the country. Orlando is also a popular vehicle shipping location among “snowbirds,” people who live in the northern states during the spring and summer and move to their winter homes, in more temperate climates, during the fall and winter. Snowbirds are a vital part of the car shipping industry during the slower fall and winter seasons.
There are a number of smaller cities in the Orlando metro area, many of them built and catered toward older residents (snowbirds). Seriously, Orlando sees a huge influx of traffic during the fall and early winter months as people are starting to move south to escape the brutal northern winters. Orlando has several big cities surrounding it including the communities of Kissimmee and Sanford, as well as smaller communities such as Winter Springs, Altamonte Springs, Maitland, and many more. These are mostly all great snowbird destinations in the Orlando metro area, and they end up helping make auto transport to metro Orlando, particularly prices and services, a lot cheaper and more easily affordable.
Auto transport companies want to run routes into and out of major cities that anchor large metropolitan areas because that’s where the largest concentrations of customers tend to be, but it makes it a lot easier if they can easily access that metro area via a major interstate highway or two. The main interstate highway servicing Orlando and its metro area is I-4, which is actually a fairly major interstate in Florida as it connects I-95 in the east to I-75 in the west. As those two interstates are the two most heavily-traveled interstates in Florida, this is pretty big, as carriers can easily get across the state and still run routes through major cities. This, coupled with the size of the Orlando metro area, makes auto transport to metro Orlando much easier to find and cheaper for you as well.
