Auburn is a city in as well as the county seat of Androscoggin County, in the U.S. state of Maine. It is currently home to a population of over 23,000 residents, making it the fifth-largest city by population in the state. Sadly, car transport to Auburn is going to be more difficult to find and ship, and often more expensive than if you were to ship to bigger cities further south, because of its location in the U.S. state of Maine. Maine, by and large, doesn’t see much car shipping traffic, and even then most shippers stay close to Portland, which to be fair sits 20-30 miles south of Auburn – which does help the cause a bit.
Carriers like to run routes to and from big cities with large populations – it’s where their customers are, and it’s a lot easier for them to find loads going into a big area as well as finding loads coming out of that area. Being able to run a route through a city, drop off a car then pick another up, and be on their way quickly results in lower overhead costs for carriers, which in turn tends to result in lower prices for customers. Maine, though, is tough to get to and from because of low demand and also a lack of major cities – it’s largest, Portland, is home to just 66,000 residents, so that’s gotta tell you something. Most would prefer to stop in Boston instead.
At the same time, though, car transport to Auburn is actually a bit easier as it sits right along I-95, just west of Lewiston, which to be fair is a fairly large city in Maine – of course, it’s Maine, so take that with a grain of salt. Big cities are usually cheaper to ship to and from because they’re more popular among customers, and therefore demand more carriers to provide services to and from those areas. Auburn doesn’t have that problem, but since it sits close to Lewiston, carriers at the very least can stop there while they are driving north or south through Maine, and since it sits along I-95 they have an easy way to get to and from the city.
