Auto Transport Tips to Citrus Heights

Citrus Heights is a major bedroom city of Sacramento, which means that it’s going to be a place that a lot of people would move in and out of within the Sacramento metro area. It doesn’t really matter where in the metro area the driver meets clients so long as he doesn’t have to do a ton of driving in the city, because those trucks get terrible mileage as-is. If a carrier can meet multiple customers in one area, it can maybe save everyone a little cash, including the driver, so talk to your representative about it to see what you can do.

That being said, Citrus Heights is easily accessible by any carrier moving along Interstate 80. While not the most popular cross-country route, due to it running through some of the smallest metro areas in the country (not to mention isolated), it is still frequented by many auto shippers, and customers are always moving cross-country along it. Being northeast of Sacramento, Citrus Heights can make for a good stopping point for a carrier, kind of like we mentioned in the last paragraph; as such, definitely talk to your auto transport representative for more information and to see what you can do in regards to making things easier for the shipper.

Another nice thing about Citrus Heights is the fact that seasonally it doesn’t get too hot or too cold, which is good news for auto shippers. During the winter there are areas of I-80 that can get pretty hazardous with the wintry conditions out there, particularly in Midwestern towns and cities, but the stretch through California is always really nice even in the winter months, and that only helps carriers get to where they really need to go – which can only help your price.
