Fort Lee is a borough (not a city) located in Bergen County, in the U.S. state of New Jersey. It is currently home to a population of over 37,000 residents, but it sits within the New York Metropolitan Statistical Area and the Greater New York Area, which means that Fort Lee is surrounded on all sides by other cities with similar populations. Fort Lee is the western terminus of the George Washington Bridge, a bridge from New York City to Fort Lee that spans the Hudson River. It is located just across the Hudson from Manhattan, placing it in a major geographical area and right on the outskirts of one of the largest commercial centers in the world. Fort Lee is perhaps best known (aside from being at the western end of the George Washington Bridge) for being the birthplace of the American film industry.

Auto Shipping to Fort Lee Tips and Tricks
On the whole, finding auto shipping to Fort Lee shouldn’t be all that difficult – it sits just outside of Manhattan, a major borough of New York City, and is, as such, a major transportation and logistics area. Depending on where exactly in Fort Lee you are trying to ship your vehicle into or out of, though, you may have to move your pickup or delivery location to somewhere more easily accessible for a carrier – not in terms of cities, but of the physical location of where you need to meet them. Carriers can’t travel through tight downtown streets, so some parts of Fort Lee may be inaccessible, requiring them to meet you in a large parking lot somewhere nearby. It shouldn’t be too hard, and the prices should be some of the lowest due to its proximity to Manhattan and the fact that I-95 – one of the most important north-south interstates in the country – flows right through Fort Lee on its way into New York City.
