Macedonia is a city located in Summit County, in the U.S. state of Ohio. It is currently home to a population of over 11,300 residents and sits within the Akron, Ohio Metropolitan Statistical Area, a fairly popular auto shipping location in the state.
The settlement of the area dates back to the early 19th century and Macedonia was originally known as “The Corners” as it was the site of a fairly major crossroads in Ohio at the time (which has led to the city’s nickname, “The Crossroads of Ohio”).
During the city’s formative years, theologians were invited to the area to preach on Sundays, and used Acts 16:10 (“…we sought to go to Macedonia, concluding that the Lord had called on us to preach to them”) as a calling card of sorts; this led to the area eventually becoming known as Macedonia, which was the name it was incorporated under.

Auto Shipping Tips to and from Macedonia
Auto shipping to or from Macedonia is typically fairly easy, despite the city’s smaller size. This is because it sits close to both Akron and Cleveland, two of the top-five largest cities by population in Ohio.
Because of this proximity, auto shipping carriers have an easier time servicing the Macedonia area and, subsequently, can offer faster pickup, transit and delivery windows and lower prices for customers more often than not.
At the same time, it may be beneficial to move your pickup or delivery location out of Macedonia and closer to one of the principal cities of the region, but it depends on the carrier, your budget and the time of year. Most times moving your pickup or delivery location will make little difference, but it’s always better to be safe than sorry.
Part of why it likely won’t matter much if you move your pickup or delivery location is the fact that Macedonia is serviced by two auxiliary interstates and sits close to a major primary interstate.
Both I-80 and I-271 run through Macedonia, and both connect to some of the most heavily-traveled interstates in the entire region. This makes getting into and out of Macedonia that much easier for auto shipping companies, which is good news for you as ease of access can make or break some prices on some routes.
Usually, this amount of access from the Interstate highways is great for carriers, which is also good for customers.
