Auto Transport to Alpharetta Tips and Tricks
As mentioned, Alpharetta is a part of the Atlanta, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is the largest metro area in Georgia and also one of the largest in the southeastern United States. Auto transport companies prefer running routes into and out of major cities that are surrounded by major metropolitan areas, as that’s where their customers tend to be, which in turn usually helps keep prices lower and pickup, transit and delivery times faster. Alpharetta sits about twenty miles north of Atlanta, which places it firmly in the comfort zone of many a car transport company, and as such auto transport to Alpharetta should be about as easy to find as transportation to Atlanta proper.
Three major interstate highways link Atlanta and its metropolitan area to the rest of the country, these being I-20, I-75 and I-85. The first listed is a major east-west interstate through the southeastern United States while I-75 and I-85 are major north-south interstates, particularly I-75, which runs south to Tampa, Florida and all the way north to Detroit, Michigan. This ease of access really helps when it comes to shipping a vehicle, as auto transport companies can easily get around the metro area without having to go too far off the routes that they have already established. You may find better deals into or out of other areas of the Atlanta metro area, depending on where you’re shipping from and to and the route your carrier is taking, but that can be discussed with your personal representative.
