Encinitas 1Encinitas is a coastal city located in San Diego County, California, just south of Carlsbad and Oceanside. Encinitas is home to over 59,000 residents and was originally nothing more than a few scattered settlements in the late 19th century. Over the course of the 20th century those communities began to grow outward and by the 1960’s many were bordering each other; it would remain that way for over twenty years, until Enciniatas was finally incorporated in 1986. Today, the main industry in the city is growing ornamental flowers, particularly poinsettias. The city is known for its mild summers and cooler winters, as it sits along the Pacific Ocean, and is particularly well-known for its good surf spots.

Auto Transport Tips to Encinitas

Encinitas’ main downtown core sits along the beach, with outlying suburbs stretching to the northeast, east and southeast. This means that it’ll likely be easier to meet your carrier in one of the suburban areas, where they have more room to maneuver and the streets are likely to be more spread out and not nearly as narrow as downtown streets tend to be. This will likely help with your pickup or delivery date as well, speeding up the process since the carrier doesn’t have to drive as far.

Speaking of driving, you may be able to save some money by shipping to or from a city that is further away from Encinitas, depending on where you’re shipping from or to. Areas such as Oceanside and Escondido are larger and sit further along major interstates. Interstate 5 goes through Encinitas, sure, but even if you’re shipping from Portland (which also is along I-5, to the north) and the carrier headed to San Diego, he’d still likely charge you a bit more to go down to Encinitas when you could meet him at Oceanside or Carlsbad.

These tips are only suggestions; we recommend highly that you speak to your auto transport representative for all the latest information and current conditions regarding auto transportation to and from the city of Encinitas. Larger cities are usually cheaper to ship to or from, but it helps that the city sits along I-5, a major north-south corridor that many carriers use – and some exclusively travel along. However, your route will be subject to where your carrier is going, so be sure to review all that information with your representative when the time comes.
