Car Shipping to Detroit
The city of Detroit is the largest city in the state of Michigan, home to over 681,000 residents in the city proper and 4.2 million in the Greater Detroit Metro Area – that’s over half the population of Michigan. Detroit was a smaller urban area from its founding at the turn of the 18th century to really the 1950’s and the completion of the Interstate Highway System, when Detroit became exposed to new cultural influences and as such the city began to transform. It was also at this time that Detroit became famous for its status as the world’s traditional automotive manufacturing center, a title that, while perhaps diminished over time, is still very much prevalent thanks to the Ford Motor Company, General Motors and Chrysler-Fiat all headquartered in the Detroit Metro area. Though once home to over a million residents at its peak in the 50’s and 60’s, Detroit unfortunately is a shadow of its former self, mired in a depression that try as the city might will not lift.

Despite Detroit’s fall and while today it may be a shadow of its former self, the fact that the Interstate Highway System was built during Detroit’s heyday means that there are still several ways to get in and out of the city, and it is still a popular transportation location even if the end location is just a suburb of Detroit rather than the city proper. I-75 is the main route into and out of Detroit, a north-south interstate that runs from the Canadian border in northern Michigan all the way to Tampa, Florida. I-75 is one of the most important north-south interstates in the country, particularly because of how many major metro areas that it goes through including Cincinnati, Knoxville and Atlanta. If you’re transporting a vehicle to or from Detroit it’s best to do it when it’s not snowing – i.e., any time other than the depths of winter, because Detroit often sees snowfall in the winter months which can cause delays, higher transportation costs and maybe even cancelled orders depending on how bad the snows are.
