Auto Transport to Chesapeake, Virginia
Chesapeake is an independent city in the U.S. state of Virginia. It is “independent” because it is not a part of any county, which is typically how a state is divided. Home to over 222,200 total residents, Chesapeake is the third-largest city in Virginia by population, after Virginia Beach and Norfolk. As an independent city, Chesapeake is rather large by total area – over 351 square miles, though most of that is wooded and largely uninhabited. The city core is located to the north, near Norfolk and Portsmouth, and is a part of the Hampton Roads metro area, one of the largest in Virginia.
On the whole, you should not have that hard of a time finding services for auto transport to Chesapeake, due to the fact that it sits close to a major city in Virginia in Norfolk. Auto transporters prefer to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas, because that’s where the majority of their potential customers tend to be. It’s cheaper to service three customers in one day as opposed to one customer over three days, so in a way that makes sense. At the same time, Chesapeake does sit on the eastern seaboard, which means carriers will have to travel further east than other cities in Virginia – at least, depending on the route.
And this is where things get kind of tricky – auto shippers tend to stick to major interstate highways that run through major cities, because it gives them quick ways around the country that take them through large markets with plenty of customers. That’s pretty basic. Chesapeake sits along I-64, which to be fair is a fairly big interstate in the region, as it connects the eastern cities in southeastern Virginia to the cities further west. But I-64 doesn’t see much traffic west of Virginia; most carriers like to stick to I-95, which is further west. I-64 does connect to I-95, which helps a lot, but your transit times may be a bit longer because of the detour. Again, talk to an agent to learn more.
