Auto Transport Routes: Dallas to Miami
Miami and Dallas are two popular auto transport locations, and as such many companies run routes to and from both cities – and when it comes to shipping from one to another, there are plenty of carriers that do that too.
It helps that both are at the center of major metropolitan areas; this allows drivers to plan routes and the like quickly and easily, knowing that there will be plenty of people who need to transport to or from either city.
As both cities are located in the Deep South of the U.S., moving from one to the other during the winter will likely be cheaper than in the summer, as there will be fewer people moving and the weather will not be as hot. However, some areas of the route may see severe winter weather, depending on the time of year.
Typically carriers coming out of Dallas will head east along I-20 until they reach Jackson, Mississippi; from there they can either use state highways and head southeast, or head south on I-55 to I-10 near Hammond, a few miles north of New Orleans, Louisiana.
Heading east along I-10 will take shippers right through the Florida panhandle and all the way to Jacksonville, which is great because they can catch I-95 south straight into Miami. Conversely, they can take I-75 near Lake City, head south into central Florida (namely Kissimmee) and then onto onto state highways into Miami.
State highways typically aren’t as popular of routes as interstates, as their routes are usually more limited and don’t pass through as many major metropolitan areas as the interstates. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’ll be more expensive to use; it really all depends on the route that your auto transportation carrier chooses to take.
