Auto Transport Tips to and from Mentor

One of the most important things about Mentor, at least from an auto transport perspective, is the fact that it sits quite close to Cleveland, one of the largest cities in the state of Ohio and in the United States in general. Cleveland is a fairly popular car shipping location, so it’s not surprising that its metropolitan area and surrounding bedroom cities see like amounts of car transport traffic. On the whole, Mentor should be about as expensive to ship to or from as Cleveland, or any of its surrounding cities, though you’ll want to discuss your shipment with a live agent for more information.

Mentor sits right along I-90, a major U.S. interstate high and one of the prime methods that car shipping companies use to get around the northern United States. It runs east-west through a number of states and cities including Cleveland, servicing its metro area and bedroom communities. It also helps that I-90 connects to a number of north-south interstates, including I-71 and I-77 in Cleveland proper. This gives car shipping carriers a lot of different options in terms of how to build their routes through Cleveland, which tends to make pickup and delivery faster and also keeps prices a bit lower as well, which can only help you in the long run.
