Auto Transport Services to New Haven, CT
The city of New Haven is the second-largest in the state of Connecticut, after Bridgeport, and is currently home to over 130,000 residents. It anchors the Greater New Haven metropolitan area, which is home to over 862,000. New Haven was founded in 1638 and was a political and religious refuge for English Puritans escaping persecution from the religious leaders of Britain at the time. The city’s downtown was plotted in 1639 in a four-by-four grid and was known as the Nine-Square Plan; the design was so practical that it has since been deemed a national planning landmark. New Haven is located along the southern coastline of Connecticut, and you can learn more about the city by visiting New Haven’s official website.
Most auto transportation services to and from New Haven are achieved via Interstate 95, which runs north-south through the city. I-95 is one of the busiest interstates in the region, as it connects some of the largest cities and metro areas on the east coast including Boston, New Haven, New York City, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, D.C., and Richmond, as well as larger cities further south like Jacksonville, Orlando and Miami. Because it passes through some of the biggest cities in the country, it’s a popular interstate for private and commercial vehicles, and auto transport to and from New Haven is actually cheaper as a result. Shipping from the southern states, or even from a city that can connect to I-95, will help the cause tremendously, though you’ll likely find that prices to and from areas directly west or north of the city may be more expensive to ship to or from as there are only state highways connecting them, particularly the various smaller areas in Connecticut.
Connecticut is also known for its harsh winter weather, which can adversely affect prices both to and from the state. During the fall and early winter months, before the heavy snows of January and February tend to hit, prices out of New Haven will likely be lower as many people end up shipping down south for the winter. This is known as snowbird season, as the people shipping down south follow the same migratory patterns as birds that migrate during the fall and winter. Shipments down to Georgia and Florida are typically much lower during this time than any other, though prices to the western parts of the country will likely be the same during the fall and rise significantly during the winter months.
