It is a part of the Saginaw, Michigan Metropolitan Statistical area, and is currently home to a population of over 4,900 total residents. Founded in the mid 19th century, the city was originally unincorporated; to stave off potential land poaching from nearby cities, the area incorporated into a village in 1904, and a city in 1959.

Auto Transport to Frankenmuth Tips and Tricks
Let’s face it – the Saginaw area is home to not so many people, sits far north in Michigan (though still south of the Upper Peninsula, which helps when it comes to shipping a car into or out of the area). Because of this, there aren’t a lot of carriers that are willing to run routes up into the area – a lack of potential customers and major cities will do that. This in turn doesn’t help your prices all that much, and with so little interest in the area prices are going to be a bit higher than to other cities further south. You may be able to save some money on your auto transport services to or from Frankenmuth by moving your pickup or delivery location to Saginaw, or even further south to someplace like Lansing, or even Detroit. It may result in a bit of a drive for you, but it may end up saving you a bit of cash on your shipment, particularly during the winter months where the weather gets worse the further north you go.
