Auto Transport Routes: Hartford to Jacksonville
As the snowbird season is now in full swing, it’s time to start focusing on some of the more snowbird-friendly routes – i.e. routes that a lot of people are looking at shipping along, considering they’re snowbirds. In this edition of our weekly “Auto Transport Routes” blog series we’re going to look at some of the things you might expect when shipping a vehicle from Hartford, Connecticut down to Jacksonville, Florida. Jacksonville isn’t necessarily the most popular of auto transport locations, or snowbird locations for that matter, but it’s a great place to ship a car to from Hartford considering they both sit along I-95.
Okay, Hartford doesn’t sit directly along I-95, but it’s the only major metro area pretty much in the state of Connecticut so carriers that run routes to or from Connecticut are going to go to Hartford. Besides, there are many snowbirds that ship from Hartford and it’s a straight shot down I-91 pretty much til it meets up with I-95 near New Haven. Theoretically you could stand to save a bit of money if you make that drive yourself; if a carrier doesn’t have to get off I-95 to pick your car up chances are he’ll lower his price. Once your vehicle gets on I-95 when it’s on the truck – whether the truck picked it up in Hartford or you drove it somewhere near I-95 – it’s going to be a straight run down the east coast into Jacksonville. From there you can drive it pretty much anywhere you would want to in the entire state, which is really awesome. Jacksonville is a major transportation hub in northeastern Florida and while not a lot of people vacation there plenty of carriers run routes in or out of Jacksonville for no other reason than its location.
