New York is a state located in the Mid-Atlantic region of the United States. Home to over 19.7 million residents, it is the fourth-most populous state in the Union. It is also the home of New York City, which makes finding New York auto transport services a lot easier.
New York City is the largest and most populous city in the United States and home to over 8.4 million residents. As such, it’s not surprising that the state is one of the most popular auto transport locations in the entire country.
A bit about New York vehicle transport services
The New York City Metropolitan Statistical Area, also known as the New York Metro Area or oftentimes just “New York,” is home to over 18.7 million residents. More recent estimates put the metro area’s population at over 20 million – more populous than the entire state within which it sits.
This is a big boon for New York auto transport services, as carriers can easily get to and from the entire area. This makes it a lot cheaper for you to ship a car to or from New York City or the New York metro area. Not only that, but it tends to result in shorter wait times for pickup and delivery, as carriers want to go to the most popular cities in the country.
It also helps that New York City and its metro area is easily accessible. I-95 runs through the heart of the city, and I-95 happens to be one of the most popular auto shipping routes in the nation. Running from Miami north to Maine, I-95 carriers some of the densest auto shipping traffic in the entire country. As such, it shouldn’t be hard to find a carrier at a decent price. However, New York definitely has rural areas, especially once you get north and west of New York City. And we need to discuss that a bit.
A bit about rural New York car shipping
Rural New York is actually a lot more prevalent than people might realize. For starters, New York City sits in the far southeastern corner of the state. So it’s easy to get to, yes, but not really representative of the typical New York auto transport experience. There are three major metro areas – New York City, the Buffalo-Rochester-Syracuse line, and maybe Albany. Outside of those areas, it’s pretty rural. A beautiful state, to be sure, but not so easy for carriers to get around it.
As such, rural New York car shipping is going to be more expensive than New York City or any other metro area. And this is par for the course for pretty much any state in the U.S., to be quite honest. But especially in central and northern New York, you may end up having to spend more.
Luckily, there’s a fair few interstate highways to aid in the shipping process, and that really will help your prices and carrier availability. However, if you’re really off the beaten path, it will likely end up costing more. We recommend you speak to an agent to learn more. They can give advice and help you find the right shipper at the right price for your needs.
