Car Transport to Grand Ledge Tips and Tricks
When you’re shipping to Grand Ledge, you’re going to come across a few things that put it at a disadvantage in terms of price and pickup time. Auto shippers want to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas because that’s where all the customers are – and that’s the most important thing for a carrier. Small towns tend to be more expensive to ship into and out of because it costs carriers more to run a long route for only a customer or two, as opposed to a long route with literally dozens of loads they can book. Grand Ledge sits maybe ten miles or so west of Lansing, which really helps the cause as it’s close enough to allow carriers to go there without having to spend more money on fuel – or only a little more, which is always good.
