Tips for Transporting a Vehicle to or from Pasadena

Pasadena is a popular relocation area for many people looking to start work  in a variety of different fields including rocketry, jet propulsion, healthcare, education, physics, engineering, and much more. Many carriers run routes in and out of Pasadena because of this, and as it sits along I-210 – just south of it, actually – access is generally easier than into and out of other areas of the greater Los Angeles area.

Auto shippers moving in and out of Los Angeles tend to pass Pasadena by, as they tend to move along  I-5 or I-10 to get into and of the area, so moving your pickup or delivery location to or from one of those major interstates may lessen the cost of your shipment. However, I-210 is also easily accessible from I-5  near Glendale, which sits just west of Pasadena, and actually connects to  I-10 just east of Rancho Cucamonga, which will also help the cause.

You’ll likely also find it cheaper to ship to or from areas that are closer to where your shipper will be coming from. If you’re coming from the northern states, shipping to an area such as Glendale, Burbank or even Santa Clarita will likely be cheaper than Pasadena. From the east, Rancho Cucamonga or San Bernardino will likely be cheaper, just based on raw mileage. Of course, this is all dependent on your specific shipping company, so be sure to talk to them before settling anything in terms of delivery locations.
