New York City 2 300x225 Car Shipping from New York to San FranciscoCoast to coast shipments are some of the most popular routes in the industry today. Be they east to west or visa-versa, finding a carrier that’s going from one side of the country to the other shouldn’t be hard. Or, it shouldn’t be hard during most times of the year. The truth of the matter is that finding routes heading west tend to be easier than finding routes heading east. This is mostly because people would rather live in California than New Jersey, and this is reflected in where they ship their vehicles. As such, car shipping from New York to San Francisco really shouldn’t be all that hard to find.

What to expect with car shipping from New York to San Francisco

For starters, shipping a car from New York to San Francisco is going to take time. New York City is a hard place to get to for most carriers, so oftentimes they’ll require you to meet them in nearby New Jersey instead. This really isn’t that big of a deal, though, because it’s still the New York metro area. Really the size of the pickup and delivery locations is going to determine their popularity, as well as how easy they are to get to. Another major factor is how popular it is for customers to move to and the reasons why. People like to live in California because of the sunshine, and want to get away from New York’s metropolitan crush.

Most of the time carriers are going to get from New York to San Francisco via I-80. This is the best and fastest route into San Francisco and it’ll be the main route carriers take from one city to the next. Of course, there are lots of other ways t get to San Francisco, but this is the route most of them will be taking. This is great because westbound routes tend to be cheaper and faster than eastbound routes. This tends to result in faster transit times and lower prices for your shipment.

Travel Trailer 1 How Carriers Ship a Travel TrailerGetting quotes to ship a travel trailer can be tricky because a travel trailer isn’t actually a vehicle. Remember, when it comes to auto transport, companies ship automobiles – cars, trucks, SUV’s, things that move themselves. Most vehicles can fit on a standard carrier thanks to their size, but a travel trailer is much different. They tend to be harder to ship properly and effectively which often means it’s more expensive to ship a travel trailer than a car. Of course, it’s not impossible to find a company to ship your travel trailer, but you need to be prepared for what may come.

So how do carriers ship a travel trailer?

A travel trailer cannot be shipped on a standard open auto transport carrier. Now, open carriers are the main carriers on the road and they haul a majority of the vehicles that are shipped today. And a travel trailer cannot fit on one, so they have to be shipped another way. and that way is usually via flatbed transportation. But even that comes with some problems, notably how heavy the trailer is and also how it’s going to get onto the truck. Most vehicles are driven onto and off of a carrier for loading and unloading. With a trailer, you can’t move it by itself, so you have to get creative unless you ship the truck that hauls it as well.

Of course, some companies will just haul your travel trailer behind their own truck. That’s one method of shipping it, but that’s not really shipping it – that’s just hiring someone else to haul it for you. Which is fine, we’re not judging in any way. Of course it does put wear on the trailer and the tires, but for many that’s perfectly fine. Ultimately, what you want to do is speak to an agent. They can give you more information about how travel trailers are shipped and also answer questions you may have. They should be a go-to resource for you, so make sure to utilize them.

Is car shipping to Hoover popular?

It can be, depending on the route. Auto transporters like routes that keep them along major interstates, and route popularity is determined by the  customers. If there is not a lot of demand to or from a given area, car shippers usually won’t go there. Alabama suffers from this on occasion, mostly because there just isn’t much demand. Many people that ship cars are moving, and most of those people are moving to sunnier places with more things to do. Birmingham has lots to do, but a lot of people don’t want to live in Alabama for a variety of reasons. Therefore, fewer people ship to Alabama on average, which can result in higher prices.

That said, it won’t be impossible to find car shipping to Hoover, it’s just going to depend on your budget. Auto transporters will often charge more for routes into Hoover because of this. During the winter months, though, is when finding routes to Hoover will be the most difficult.

Worcester MA 1 Auto Transport to Metro Worcester, MassachusettsThe Worcester metropolitan area is a metro area anchored by the city of Worcester, Massachusetts. Though it is a part of Greater Boston, Worcester does anchor its own metropolitan area home to over 923,000 residents. Auto transport to metro Worcester isn’t as popular as Boston car shipping services, but it sits close enough to Boston to attract carriers. This is great because it helps keep your prices for shipping to Worcester or any of its surrounding bedroom cities more affordable. This can depend both on the route and the time of year, though, which is why we feel it’s important to keep reading to learn all you can about auto transport to metro Worcester.

Is auto transport to metro Worcester popular?

It can be during certain times of the year. Greater Boston, of which Worcester is a part, is a major car transportation hub, which is great. However, though there may be customers moving cars in and out of there, carriers would prefer to stay close to Boston. Boston is the major shipping hub in Massachusetts mostly because of its size and connections. Therefore, prices into Worcester may be a bit higher than into Boston because carriers have to go out of their way. During the winter months this can be even more difficult to do. New England is known for its winter weather, and snow and ice can cause problems for carriers.

Luckily, Worcester won’t be too hard to get to during most times of the year. It sits right along I-90 and also several of its auxiliaries. This allows carriers to get to Worcester from the west quite easily, though routes from the west tend to be a bit higher in price. Westbound routes tend to be cheaper as more people are shipping to the west coast on average, notably Los Angeles and San Francisco. However, carriers will go anywhere so long as the price is right. If you are shipping to Worcester on a budget, talk to an agent for more information.
