Gainesville is a city in and is also the county seat of Hall County, in the U.S. state of Georgia. Gainesville is the anchor city of the Gainesville, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area, which in turn is a part of the Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Gainesville Combined Statistical Area. Founded in 1818, Gainesville grew in popularity during the Georgia gold rush in the 1830’s, though by the 1850’s the rapid initial growth slowed down. The city grew to prominence during the latter half of the 20th century, notably during the 1960’s when its population began to grow again due to people moving out of the major cities such as Atlanta, preferring a more suburban lifestyle.

Car Shipping to Gainesville Tips and Tricks
Shipping a vehicle to Gainesville is about as difficult to do as if you were shipping to Atlanta, mostly because the urban sprawl is fairly large in the area. The Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Gainesville metro area is large, large enough to be the most popular auto transport location in the state. This makes car shipping to Gainesville easier to find and cheaper as well, since carriers can easily include Gainesville on their list of stops through the Atlanta metro area. Since they can easily get to and from Gainesville, carriers can charge customers less for their individual shipments while still making enough money to afford running that route. This leads to more competitive prices for you, the customer, and also faster pickup times as well.
Of course, when it comes to car shipping to Gainesville, part of your price depends on where you’re shipping from. Car transporters like to stick to major interstate highways when they are running routes, namely due to the fact that they’re easily accessible, run through a number of states and cities (the major ones, anyway), and provide access to a far larger amount of customers than is available along surface streets or rural roads. Greenville sits off I-985, a spur of I-85 between Atlanta and Greenville, South Carolina. The spur runs all the way north to other populated areas as well, which is good as carriers can still access Gainesville without sacrificing other loads nearby.
