Mebane is a city located in Alamance and Orange counties, in the U.S. state of North Carolina. It is currently home to a population of just under 11,400 residents and is technically a part of the Burlington Metropolitan Statistical Area, though the metro areas in North Carolina are a bit wonky and it is also listed under the Raleigh metro area, which is where we’re going to say it is located for the sake of convenience. It is a part of the Raleigh-Durham Combined Statistical Area, after all, and only sits maybe 30-40 miles north of Raleigh and only a few miles north of Durham, the two largest cities in the area.

Car Shipping to Mebane Tips and Tricks
Since Mebane sits so close to Raleigh and Durham, auto shippers shouldn’t have any problems getting a vehicle to or from the city. Auto shippers prefer to run their routes into and out of major cities and their surrounding metropolitan areas because that’s where the vast majority of their customers are. By sticking close to cities that have lots of customers, carriers can more easily keep their trucks full and on the road, and this means lower prices for customers. It also helps when they can quickly get from one pickup or delivery location in a given area to another within a relatively short amount of time; if a carrier can deliver two vehicles and pick up three more in a fifty-mile radius, that’s going to save them a lot of time and money, which usually means lower prices.
It really helps too that Mebane sits right along I-40, an interstate that not only services numerous major cities in North Carolina but also the entire United States. I-40 is a major logistics corridor in the central United States and spans quite a distance, from North Carolina to California and connects some of the largest cities in the region together. In North Carolina alone I-40 provides access to cities such as Greensboro, Burlington, Chapel Hill and Raleigh, to name a few. This allows car transporters to easily get from one part of the state to another, and the entire region surrounding Mebane is heavily populated, which should help keep your prices lower and transit times a bit quicker.
