Auto Transport Tips to and from Bensalem
Bensalem is located only a few miles north of Philadelphia, maybe fifteen or twenty minutes away via the interstate. This makes it easily accessible for auto shippers, as they prefer to run routes into and out of major metropolitan areas that are anchored by major cities anyway. With the Philadelphia metro area so large, it’s not all that uncommon for carriers to run routes into and out of smaller bedroom cities and communities for the same price as they would to Philadelphia. What makes this even better for you is that Philadelphia, as the largest city in the state, tends to see the highest amounts of auto transport traffic in the state, which usually means the lowest prices in Pennsylvania.
It really helps that carriers can quickly run north through Philadelphia and into Bensalem via I-95, a major north-south interstate and one of the most heavily traveled in the nation. This means that there’s almost always going to be a carrier willing to run a route into or out of Philadelphia, especially considering the fact that so many people live in the general vicinity anyway. I-95 passes through and near some of the largest cities in the eastern U.S. including New York City, Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland. This tends to make things a lot easier – and cheaper – for you.
