Car Transport to Statesville Tips and Tricks
Statesville is technically a part of the Charlotte metro area, but it’s located about 30-40 miles north of Charlotte and also about 30 miles east of Winston-Salem and fifty miles west of Greensboro. In other words, Statesville is fairly centrally-located, which is great news since auto shippers like to run routes into and out of populated areas that sit within major metropolitan areas. In this it’s a bit peculiar in that Statesville could almost be a part of either the Charlotte area or the Winston-Salem area; either way, it’s easily accessible and gives carriers easier access to other cities in North Carolina, which helps keep prices a bit lower.
It also really helps that Statesville sits right along Interstate 40, one of the most heavily-traveled interstate highways in the country and a major transportation and logistics route through the south-central states within the country. This gives carriers easy access to Statesville as well other major interstates in Charlotte, Winston-Salem and Greensboro. What this means is that car transporters can confidently run routes to and from Statesville knowing that they can easily get to other major cities in North Carolina – and since those cities are also large, with their own sprawling metropolitan areas, the number of potential customers in such a small (relatively speaking) area means they can keep their operating costs lower, and thus pass the savings on to you.
