Auto Transport Routes: Indianapolis to New Orleans
Transporting a vehicle from Indianapolis to New Orleans may not sound like the most complicated route on the planet, and really it isn’t – at least if you’re driving there yourself. Auto shipping carriers, on the other hand, like to run routes that take them through several major metropolitan areas, and while Indianapolis and New Orleans are both major cities in the United States, home to hundreds of thousands of people each, they’re surrounded by – on the whole, anyway – a whole lot of nothing, which can make it more expensive to transport a vehicle from one to the other. In this blog we’ll discuss some of the different ways transport companies can get from Indianapolis down to New Orleans and what you can expect when shipping your vehicle – however, any routes we mention are compiled based on our own research, and the actual route your vehicle will travel is likely subject to change, so make sure to get all the facts from your shipping company if you’re concerned.
The quickest way from Indianapolis to New Orleans is likely to be I-65. Indianapolis is a major transportation hub in the Midwest, and as such there are several different north-south interstates (or north-south numbered interstates, anyway) that allow transporters to get to a number of different places from Indianapolis. When heading south into Alabama, Mississippi or eastern Louisiana, I-65 is generally a good way to go. Passing through Louisville and Nashville before entering Birmingham, Alabama, I-65 is a quick jaunt for most shippers while allowing them access to several major metro areas along the way. From Birmingham, they’ll likely transfer onto I-59, which heads southwest from the city into southeastern Mississippi, particularly Meridian and Hattiesburg, before making the jump into eastern Louisiana and across Lake Pontchartrain into New Orleans proper.
