Auto Transport Services to Gulfport, Mississippi
Gulfport is a city in and one of two county seats of Harrison County, in the U.S. state of Mississippi. Currently home to a population of over 67,700 residents, Gulfport is the second-largest city in Mississippi, after Jackson, and sits as one of the anchors of the Gulfport-Biloxi Metropolitan Statistical Area, one of the largest in Mississippi. The area has been inhabited by American settlers since the mid-19th century, though for a number of years Mississippi City, which today is a suburb of Gulfport, was the largest city in and county seat of Harrison County. This changed after Gulfport was founded in 1898, and growth came thanks to tourism and fishing, primarily, as the city is located on the shores of the Gulf of Mexico.
As you likely know, auto transporters prefer to run routes to and from big cities with large populations. This is because that’s where their customers tend to be – the bigger an area, the more potential customers are in said area, and thus the more money auto shippers stand to make. Gulfport isn’t all that big, but auto transport services to Gulfport are far from impossible to find because of the size of the metro area it anchors. Auto shippers like big metro areas, and while Mississippi doesn’t have a lot of big cities or metropolitan regions, Gulfport’s is big enough to warrant running a load or two into or out of the city. At the same time, you can probably save some time and money by discussing your route with your carrier and seeing if there’s anything you can do to help them make things easier.
Auto transport services to Gulfport are typically done via Interstate 10. Car carriers want to stick to the interstate highways because they run through the largest cities in the country. I-10 is a major interstate too, as it runs coast-to-coast through a number of different states and provides access to some of the largest cities in the southern U.S. This helps keep operating costs lower, which tends to result in lower prices for customers. The auto shipping industry is competitive – carriers are basically pitted against each other when trying to find freight out of a specific area, which results in lower prices for customers. At the same time, some areas are going to be more expensive to ship to or from than others, so talk to an agent for more about pricing for auto transport services to Gulfport.
