Car Shipping to Albany, New York
Albany is a city in as well as the capital of the U.S. state of New York. It is also the county seat of Albany County. The city is home to just over 100,000 residents, making it the sixth-largest city in New York by population. As such, car shipping to Albany should not be hard to find.
Auto shippers like to run routes to and from big cities with large populations, and while Albany is a far cry from New York City it also sits just 150 miles north of it. As you likely know, New York City is the largest in both New York and the U.S., which makes it a huge auto shipping hub in the region.
So, car shipping to Albany is popular then?
It’s not quite as popular as other places in New York State, but it’s popular enough to see pretty routine car transport traffic. This is mostly due to the Albany metro area, which is home to over 1.1 million residents – ten times that of Albany proper.
This allows carriers access to a number of different customers within the area, so getting from one customer to the next is cheap and easy for them, on the whole. Winter auto transport services can take longer due to the routine snows that Albany gets, as the routes can be dangerous for carriers. But on the whole it should not be hard to find a truck willing to run a route through Albany.
But is car shipping to Albany expensive?
It can be, depending on the route. It really helps that Albany sits about two or three hours north of New York City, as it means it’s accessible to most carriers on the same day they go to New York City. It also sits right on I-87 as well as several other interstates. I-87 is the main one that connects down to New York City, though.
This is actually great news if you’re on the hunt for shipping services to or from Albany, as it gives carriers a quick way down to New York City. This results in lower prices and faster transit times for you during most times of the year. Of course, this depends on your route – longer routes take longer and cost more than shorter ones, after all.
