Car Shipping to Pittsfield Tips and Tricks
Okay, so we’ve established Pittsfield is attractive to carriers – maybe not as attractive as Springfield, to the south, or Boston, to the east, but it’s on their radar. This makes finding car shipping to Pittsfield a whole lot easier for you, and what’s more is that you usually don’t have to move your pickup or delivery location to somewhere more convenient. This saves you time and also money. Remember, you still need to coordinate a pickup and delivery address with your carrier, and they can’t get to some of the more cramped places in Pittsfield (or any city, for that matter).
Typically, carriers will ask you to meet them near an interstate highway exit, as it makes it faster and easier for them to complete the route. But if you look at the map we included below, you’ll see Pittsfield doesn’t sit along any major interstates, but it does sit less than ten miles north of I-90. If you can move your pickup or delivery location down to an exit off of I-90, you may be able to save some money, or at the very least your carrier will get to you more quickly. You should speak to an agent about that, though as it may not be necessary.
