Auto Transport Tips to and from Conroe
Conroe sits about 40 miles north of Houston proper, making it one of the most northern cities within Greater Houston. This usually results in slightly higher prices to and from the city proper, at least when it comes to auto transportation, because auto shippers prefer running routes directly through the main areas of the city, usually those that are adjacent to major interstates. The Interstate Highway System is the main way auto shippers get around, and shipping to and from areas right off the interstate – or major cities that sit along major interstates – is usually the cheapest way to go.
That being said, Conroe is a decent area to ship to considering it sits right along Interstate 45. While not the most popular north-south route in the nation, I-45 is still an interstate and as such will be more enticing for auto shippers to drive along than a state highway would be. This makes Conroe easier to get to and from for car transport companies, which usually results in lower prices (depending on where you’re shipping to Conroe from, or vice-versa).
