Car Shipping to Kansas City, Missouri
Kansas City is a city located in Jackson County, Missouri. It is one of the county’s two county seats. Kansas City is the largest city in Missouri by population and one of the most popular vehicle shipping locations in the state, along with St. Louis. Founded in 1831 by Mormons, the original settlement was actually abandoned by them for a few years before new settlers came to the area (the Mormons that settled in Kansas City would eventually be a part of the group that founded Utah). Kansas City was officially incorporated in 1853, and its location on the Missouri River opened the area up to riverboat traffic, which helped the area grow economically. Today, the city’s economy is diverse and flowering and the area is perhaps the most popular vehicle shipping location in the state.
Kansas City sits on the Missouri-Kansas border and anchors a fairly large metropolitan area that spans two states and includes some of the largest cities in the entire region. Cities such as Overland Park, Olathe, and Lee’s Summit are popular alternative transportation locations and see plenty of car shipping traffic, which is good news if you’re trying to find car shipping to Kansas City proper. Auto shippers want to run their routes through large cities in order to service more customers and keep their operating costs lower and profits higher. This actually benefits you if you’re shipping to or from Kansas City, as your prices tend to be more affordable along most major routes. Auto transporters can charge less on more popular routes since their operating costs are lower, which keeps their prices more competitive and their trucks full of cars.
It really helps the cause that Kansas City has a number of ways into and out of most parts of the city and its metropolitan region. I-70, I-29, I-35 and I-49 all flow into or through the Kansas City metro area, which means that auto shippers have a number of ways that they can get to or from most parts of the city and its suburbs. Ease of access goes a long way in determining the popularity of a given area, and the easier an area is to get to and from the cheaper it tends to be to ship to or from that area.
