Peachtree City is a city located in Fayette County, in the U.S. state of Georgia. It is currently home to a population of over 34,600 residents and is a part of the Atlanta, Georgia Metropolitan Statistical Area, the largest urban conglomeration in the state of Georgia and one of the largest in the southeastern United States. This usually makes car shipping to Peachtree City easier to find and more affordable as well. Peachtree City is relatively young, though people have lived in the region dating back to the 19th century. It would remain unincorporated until the 1970’s. Growth of the city was due mainly to urban flight from Atlanta during the second-half of the 20th century, and from 1970 to 1980 the population increased from just under 800 residents to over 6,400. Growth has slowed down, though has remained positive, ever since.

Car Shipping to Peachtree City Tips and Tricks
Peachtree City sits about a half hour south of Atlanta proper, placing it firmly within the larger city’s metropolitan area. This is actually good news, as it means car shipping to Peachtree City usually is easier to find for customers, as more carriers are willing to run routes into major cities and their surrounding metro areas. The reason why is because of the fact that more customers live in urban areas than rural ones, and by keeping close to major populated areas car transporters can still make enough money to turn a profit without having to charge their customers as much to ship their vehicles. This leads to lower prices and, because of its location near Atlanta, faster pickup, transit and delivery times as a result.
Peachtree City does not sit along any major interstate highways, which can affect transit times slightly, though rarely. Car shipping to Peachtree City may also be a bit more expensive due to the lack of interstate access. At the same time, there are several state highways that connect Peachtree City to Atlanta proper, so many carriers can still get into and out of the city quickly and affordably. On the whole, its proximity to major interstates likely won’t affect your prices all that much, but if you find that the total cost is a bit more than what your budget allows, we recommend speaking to a live agent about your shipment to or from Peachtree City to see if there are ways to lower your costs.
