Auto Transport Tips to and from Lakewood

Lakewood is a smaller city in the state of Ohio, but it sits next to Cleveland, one of the largest, which generally makes it cheaper and faster to ship to or from than some of the more rural areas of the state. Auto shipping companies prefer to run routes into and out of major metropolitan areas along major interstates, and typically the larger the anchor city of a metro area the more popular the entire area is going to be amongst car shipping companies. This is good news for you, as Lakewood sits on the border of Cleveland, which should make it easier, faster and cheaper for car transporters to quickly get into and out of the area.

It really helps that Lakewood sits right along I-90, a major east-west interstate that services many major cities in the northern United States and especially the lake cities in Ohio and along the Great Lakes. This route is often used during the summer months, which tends to make things a bit cheaper and faster, though during the winter months snow and ice can freeze up routes through Lakewood, Cleveland and much of the Great Lakes region, which can make your shipment more expensive and also take longer from pickup to delivery.
