Berwyn 1Berwyn is a city located in Cook County, Illinois. Cook County is divided up into thirty individual townships; Berwyn is coterminous with Berwyn Township, meaning they are formed from the exact same boundaries, much how Denver is also coterminous with Denver County, Colorado. In terms of total size, Berwyn is quite small, but with a population of over 56,800 residents there are quite a lot of people living in a very small area, which makes Berwyn quite crowded, all things considered. It just just a few miles west of Chicago, firmly within the Chicago Metropolitan Statistical Area, which makes it a popular shipping location if only by association and proximity to Chicago. On the whole, you should find competitive rates and standard transit times as well as pickup and delivery windows.

Auto Transport Tips to and from Berwyn

Berwyn’s population density sits at 14,564/sq mi – that’s a lot of people squished into a small area, and this is really useful considering it’s location in the Chicago metro area. More people in an area tend to make the area more popular among auto transport companies, especially if that area is surrounded by a massive metropolitan area, such as Berwyn is. While you should see quicker pickup and transit times shipping into and out of Berwyn, as well as competitive prices, you could likely save money by moving your pickup or delivery out of Berwyn and into another part of the Chicago metro area that is closer to the route your carrier will be taking. You can discuss this option with your representative once you book your order and start shipping your vehicle, though, and it may not make a difference given Berwyn’s proximity to Chicago – but you never know.

Part of the reason why we recommend speaking to a representative about moving your pickup or delivery location to somewhere easier for a carrier to access is the fact that Berwyn doesn’t really sit along any major interstates. It’s sandwiched in between I-290 – an auxiliary east-west interstate of I-90 – and I-55, which to be fair is a fairy major north-south interstate. Depending on your location in Berwyn, though, it may not be as easy for them to maneuver through the tight streets and narrow corridors, so meeting them somewhere that is not only closer to the route they want to run (which means they don’t have to go out somewhere just to backtrack for one car) but also easier to get to and from in terms of maneuvering, you could save some time and money in the long run.
