Auto Transport Tips to and from Aliquippa
Aliquippa is located maybe ten or fifteen miles northwest of Pittsburgh, the second-largest city in the state of Pennsylvania, which makes it a lot easier for auto transport carriers to get into and out of. Car shippers want to stick near major metropolitan areas and run routes through areas that have a lot of people in them – more people, more potential customers, after all. This makes bedroom communities of major metro areas cheaper and faster to ship to and from than areas off the beaten path, and with Aliquippa so close to Pittsburgh you’ll likely see that in your prices and pickup windows as well.
At the same time, Aliquippa doesn’t sit along any major interstates, unlike Pittsburgh and other parts of the metro area, which usually isn’t a big deal for carriers but it can impact where your vehicle will be picked up or delivered. Some carriers may actually give you a discount if you move your pickup or delivery location out of Aliquippa and into somewhere more easily accessible, though it depends on the company and the driver and the route that he wants to run.
