Auto Transport to Gray Tips and Tricks
Gray is a part of the Macon, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area, the fifth-largest metro area in the state. Macon is a fairly popular vehicle shipping location, and Gray sits only 10 miles or so northeast of Macon proper, which helps make auto transport to Gray a bit more affordable. At the same time, not all shippers are going to be willing to run routes to or from such a small city; 3,200 residents isn’t a lot when you compare it to Atlanta or other big cities across the country. You may end up saving some time or money by moving your pickup or delivery location out of Gray and into Macon, as more carriers are likely going to be running routes to Macon and may not know the area well enough to know Gray is close by.
Auto shippers like to stick to routes that take them through big cities surrounded by big metropolitan areas. Macon sits a couple hours south of Atlanta, which makes it a popular car transport location in Georgia. The reason why is ease of access; Macon sits right along Interstate 75, the main north-south route through Georgia and an interstate that provides access to major cities between Tampa, Florida and Detroit, Michigan. This is great for you because Gray sits so close to the interstate – because of its proximity, ease of access is made easier, and thus the area is cheaper for carriers to run routes into and out of. Again, though, they may not know Gray exists, and may prefer meeting you in or around Macon to compensate.
