Auto Shipping Tips to and from Hudson
Hudson sits north of Akron, Cuyahoga Falls and Stow, making it a fairly popular part of the Akron metro area and especially so when it comes to shipping a vehicle. See, auto shipping companies prefer to run routes into and out of major metropolitan areas surrounded by lots of commuter towns and suburbs, as they can stack loads and keep their trucks full without having to drive all over the place and waste time and money. While Akron is not the largest metro area in Ohio, it is still populous enough to make it a top-five auto shipping area in the state, which should help your prices and services.
A lot of this has to do with its location and ease of access. In addition to being close to both Akron and Cleveland (which sits north – Akron is actually a part of the Cleveland Combined Statistical Area due to its proximity), Hudson sits along several major interstates including I-80, which through the Akron area is known as the Ohio Turnpike, and also sits along I-480 (only a small portion, though) as well as a major state highway linking I-80 to I-76 further south. This allows auto shipping carriers to quickly and easily get to and from Hudson, as well as a number of other cities and towns near Akron, which usually results in faster pickup, transit and delivery times as well as more competitive pricing.
