Auto Transport Tips to and from Worthington
As mentioned, Worthington is a part of the Columbus Metropolitan Statistical Area, the third-largest in Ohio and anchored by the largest city and capital of the entire state. This is good news if you’re looking to ship a vehicle to or from Worthington, as the city is not all that large by modern standards – still, being situated so close to such a large area means that car transport companies can quickly and easily get into and out of the smaller city without having to deviate from their own routes too much. This helps keep your prices lower and also your transit times into and out of the area a bit quicker.
Worthington sits just south of I-270, which is the main beltway that encircles the Columbus metro area. It’s a really useful beltway that allows people to get to a number of different areas within the Columbus metro area easily without having to take nothing but surface streets. This includes car shipping companies, which is really helpful when they are trying to build routes through entire metropolitan areas. Since they can get from one area to another quickly and easily thanks to the beltway (and other interstates, namely I-70 and I-71, that service the Columbus metro area), prices tend to be lower and pickup, transit and delivery windows tend to be a bit shorter, helping you save time and money on your shipment into or out of Worthington.
