Forsyth is a city in as well as the county seat of Monroe County, in the U.S. state of Georgia. It is currently home to a population of over 3,770 residents and is a part of the Macon, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area, one of the larger metro areas in the state. The city was first laid out in 1823 and attracted residents during the late 19th and early 20th centuries thanks to the railroads that were built through the area. Population growth was slow, though in recent years its location between Macon and Atlanta, the largest city in and capital of the U.S. state of Georgia, has led to growth, particularly after Interstate 75 was built through the town during the 1970’s.

Car Shipping to Forsyth Tips and Tricks
As a vehicle shipping destination, Forsyth leaves a bit to be desired; it’s relatively small and somewhat out of the way, but it helps that it sits nestled in one metro area that abuts another. The Macon metro area isn’t all that big, but it sits near Atlanta, which is perhaps the most popular vehicle shipping location in the state of Georgia. As such, car shipping to Forsyth – which sits maybe 20 miles north of Macon and about 50 south of Atlanta – is easily accessible by auto transportation companies, which really helps keep prices more competitive. That said, the area does not see a lot of demand from customers, which can make it harder to find a carrier willing to run to Forsyth.
At the same time, it’s made a lot easier by the fact that it sits right along I-75, the main north-south interstate through Georgia. I-75 provides carriers access to a variety of areas not just in Georgia, but in areas both north and south of the state too. This means that car transporters are more willing to run routes that allow them access to Interstate 75, and that includes shipments to and from Forsyth. This actually makes things a lot easier for carriers, since they can run a route into Atlanta, fill up their truck, drive down to Macon via I-75 and stop in Forsyth along the way, thus netting them more money while not having to spend a lot of time driving from one pickup or delivery location to another and thus saving them money as well.
