Auto Transport to Key West, Florida
Are you looking for auto transport to Key West, Florida? Don’t worry – we can help! Key West is a city in Florida, but it’s also an island, located about 50 miles or so off the southern Florida coast. Most times you’d need a boat to get to an island, but Key West – and all the Keys in Florida – have road access. This makes it a lot easier to actually get a vehicle to or from Key West. But it’s still not all that easy. We’re going to talk a bit about shipping to or from Key West, Florida, what to expect, and how you can make it even better.
Things to know about auto transport to Key West, Florida
Key West is the southernmost city in the contiguous U.S, and sits about 130 miles southwest of Miami by air. By road, though, it’s a bit longer, though it’s only a three hour drive on average from Miami. Despite Florida’s popularity as a car transport location, Key West doesn’t see that much traffic. Being home to just 25,000 residents may be a part of the reason why.
But it’s also a lot further than Miami and not a lot of carriers want to make that drive. The roads are mostly on islands, which helps, but the road is a two-lane highway that they’re stuck on for three hours. If a carrier doesn’t have to go to Key West, they likely won’t. And they typically only will go if the price is right for them.
So you can save money by actually moving your pickup or delivery location somewhere closer to the Florida mainland. Homestead is a popular choice. Dropping off in Homestead is a lot easier for carriers, and tends to lower prices for customers as well.
Other Keys may work as well, but those come with the same basic issues as Key West minus the distance. It’s still hard for carriers to turn around and navigate their big rigs along the small roads in the Keys.
