Mansfield is a city located primarily in Tarrant County, in the U.S. State of Texas, though portions of the city now overlap into nearby Ellis and Johnson counties as well. Home to over 56,300 residents, Mansfield is a large and affluent suburb of Fort Worth, though its location – roughly equidistant to Dallas, Fort Worth and the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport make it a popular location to move to within Texas, and places the city more as a suburb of both Dallas and Fort Worth than one or the other. Mansfield has been ranked several times on CNN’s Money list of the best places in the U.S. to live, including 17th in 2014.

Auto Transport Tips to Mansfield
Though Mansfield is located equidistant from Dallas, Fort Worth and the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport, its actual location is better suited for residents than it is for auto transportation companies. The main reason is the fact that Mansfield is only accessible directly via state highways; no interstates run through the city, which means auto shippers will be less inclined to ship your vehicle there. You could save a bit of time and money by moving your pickup or delivery location out of Mansfield and into Fort Worth or Dallas proper, or another city in the metro area.
Generally, auto shippers prefer to run routes through cities that sit directly along an interstate highway, since the interstate highway system is the most effective method they have of getting around. Since most shippers are interstate haulers as is, the interstates make it much easier and more cost effective than state highways, even though there are plenty of non-interstate highways that actually cross state borders, such as Route 101 in California and Oregon, or Route 66 through the southern U.S. Since Mansfield only has state highways connecting it to the rest of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, prices may increase if you don’t move your pickup location.
