Auto Transport Tips to and from New Braunfels

New Braunfels is located northeast of San Antonio and sits southwest of Austin a ways, along Interstate 35. This makes it incredibly easy to ship to and from New Braunfels because it’s quite easy to access and sits near two of the largest cities in the state of Texas. Auto transport companies prefer running routes into and out of cities that are easy to get to and from and that sit near major metro areas, and New Braunfels satisfies both of those conditions for most car transport carriers, though it does depend on the route that they end up driving and where you are shipping to from New Braunfels, or where you’re shipping from to New Braunfels.

Routes play an integral role in your price, because a bad route with an average going rate might not get your vehicle moved. That said, many carriers are willing to run routes through New Braunfels, as they gain access to both Austin and San Antonio, and it’s easy to get from one to the other no matter where in the U.S. your carrier is coming from. It also helps that New Braunfels sits outside of San Antonio’s densely-populated and tightly-packed urban areas, since it gives carriers more freedom to move around and they have to adhere to less restrictions due to the narrow downtown streets common in most major cities.
