Auto Transport Routes: Atlanta to Chicago
Atlanta and Chicago are two rather popular auto transport locations (Chicago more so than Atlanta, though mainly because of its size), and as such many carriers will typically be willing to run a route from Atlanta north to Chicago.
Prices on the route will probably be a bit lower in the spring and summer, with prices going up in late fall and winter due to the bad winter weather Chicago sees annually.
While there are many possible routes that your carrier can travel on to get from Atlanta to Chicago, we’re going to cover the most direct, while at the same time highlighting some of the major cities that your carrier will likely pass through (which also helps keep your transportation prices lower, as larger cities = more customers).
When starting out from Atlanta, a carrier heading north will likely start out on I-75 and head up to Chattanooga, where they can go one of two ways: they can stay on I-75 and head up through Lexington, then catch I-65 and go north through Indianapolis and then into Chicago.
Alternatively, they could catch I-24 out of Chattanooga and go up through Nashville, then into Louisville and so on and so forth. This route hits several major cities that the former does not; however, the former is typically more popular because a) it’s a straight shot, no getting off I-75 until Lexington, then it’s a quick jump onto I-65, and b) they could take I-75 all the way to Cincinnati, where they could then get onto I-65.
The diversity in routes definitely makes it easier for carriers to make it affordable to transport from Atlanta to Chicago, and with so many routes come so many potential customers in many different cities. The fact that each one goes through major metro areas also helps keep the price lower.
