Auto Transport to Rochester, New York
Rochester is a city in as well as the county seat of Monroe County, in the U.S. state of New York. It is currently home to a population of over 210,500 residents, making it the third-largest city by population in the state, behind only New York City and Buffalo. It also is the anchor of the larger Rochester, New York Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is home to over one million residents and spans six counties in northwestern New York. Once a major boomtown and a center of manufacturing in western New York, today the city is more notable for its retail and other economic services. It has been ranked high on livability indexes several times, most recently in 2012, and is notable for its low cost of living, high employment rate and its top public schools.
While there are easier places to ship a car than Rochester, the city itself sits near several other large cities in New York including Syracuse and Buffalo. Auto transporters want to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas because that’s where their customers tend to be; by sticking close to densely populated areas, they can easily get from one big city to another without having to sacrifice a lot of time or energy traveling into sparsely populated areas. With Buffalo and Syracuse also nearby, and a densely-populated metro area, auto transporters can make a decent amount of money by running to Rochester, which results in lower prices for you.
It does help that it sits close to Interstate 90. Auto transporters want to run routes not only through big cities and densely populated areas, but also by sticking close to major interstate highways. While there are more popular routes than I-90, the Rochester area sees heavy use of it, and auto shippers will often save money by staying close to the interstates. There will likely be areas that such a large truck can’t fit in, though, as Rochester was first founded well before the advent of the automobile. If there are areas your vehicle cannot reach, you will need to meet your shipper somewhere that they can get to, often near an interstate exit.
