Tips for Auto Transport to and from Davis

Davis sits right along Interstate 80 after it passes through Sacramento, which means that it might be a good location to ship to or from if there are a plethora of carriers taking loads into and out of San Francisco, which is ultimately where I-80 joins with US 101. This route is popular and not-popular at the same time; because of the route I-80 takes across the United States, some carriers may not be as willing to head out on that road, which may make shipping into or out of Davis more expensive, or take longer to dispatch the order.

However, I-80 is still plenty popular to warrant at least some traffic despite the time of year, but some will only be willing to go into Sacramento and not all the way to San Francisco, depending on the freight. In this scenario it will likely be a good idea to talk to your representative about possibly meeting your carrier in Sacramento, which is only a few miles away and easily accessible by the vast majority of people living in Davis.

Talk to your representative to get a better idea of the state of the industry in regards to Davis and to see what you can do about making your pickup quicker or your price lower. There may not be anything that you can do, but it’s always best to survey all your options before deciding on what to do. Regardless, you shouldn’t experience exorbitant wait times or prices in and out of Davis regardless of all this, at least compared to other cities in the country, because of its proximity to Sacramento and its location on a major interstate.
