Auto Transport Routes: Detroit to Miami
Detroit is the largest city in the state of Detroit and one of the more popular auto transport locations in the country – namely, because the biggest three auto manufacturers in the U.S. are all headquartered there.
Miami anchors the largest metropolitan area in the state of Florida and is arguably the most popular car shipping location in the United States today.
The Detroit-Miami route is also a popular route for car transporters, particularly the fact that they can literally stay on one interstate highway until they get into Central Florida (near Orlando). I-75 is a crucial part of the Interstate Highway System too, as it passes through a number of major metropolitan areas such as Toledo, Cincinnati, Lexington, Atlanta and Orlando.
Because of the ease of travel for auto shippers, as well as the major metro areas that I-75 passes through, chances are shipments from Detroit down to Miami are going to cost a bit less than another route of the same distance between two different cities.
The route may have tolls on it, but most auto transporters that run regular routes out of Detroit understand the route well enough to avoid them if they can – or deal with them if they can’t.
Though Detroit’s population isn’t what it once was (and, really, Detroit’s hemorrhaging people right now), it’s still a popular area for people to ship vehicles from and to. Of course, Miami is popular as a car transport location year-round; prices in and out of the Miami metro area are routinely some of the lowest in the country.
Keep in mind that the total trek is over 1,300 miles; this translates to roughly 4-7 days from pickup to delivery, depending on how many other stops your carrier has to make and where those stops happen to be.
Most will try to schedule their pickups and deliveries in areas that are near the interstate, but sometimes they will have to go out of their way in order to meet customers. This can take a bit of extra time, depending on how many stops they have, but rest assured that your vehicle will be delivered within the time frame that your car transporter gave you.
