Auto Transport to Grand Haven Tips and Tricks
Grand Haven sits about 20-25 miles west of Grand Rapids, which on the whole really isn’t that bad, at least from a car shipping perspective. It makes auto transport to Grand Haven a bit easier to find and book, namely because it sits so close to a major population center in Michigan. As the second-largest metro area in the state, the Grand Rapids metro area is frequented by quite a few car transport carrier companies on a regular basis, which also helps reduce costs and transit times for you. At the same time, shipping during the fall and winter may be more difficult, as the industry is slower, there are fewer carriers and the weather in the Grand Rapids area really isn’t all that pleasant. Winter weather can cause delays and hazardous conditions that can turn carriers off to the route, so talk to an agent to learn more.
