Car Shipping to Middletown, Delaware
Middletown is a town, not a city, located in New Castle County, in the U.S. state of Delaware. It is currently home to a population of over 18,700 and is the fourth-largest municipality in the state of Delaware. Middletown has seen remarkable growth in recent decades and is a prominent example of suburban sprawl. The city is located only thirty miles southwest of Wilmington, the largest city in Delaware, which means that it is easily accessible from the northern parts of the state where I-95 is located. Growth has been seen primarily in the western parts of the town, along the U.S 301 corridor; nationwide food chains and retail outlets have sprung up in recent years, as well as shopping centers and other places where people can go spend money. This has had a positive effect on the town and its economy, and has led to further annexation of nearby land for the city, which has helped further its growth.
Auto transporters prefer to run routes into and out of major metropolitan areas along major interstate highways. Unfortunately for car shipping to Middletown, it’s not a big city, just a small town a half hour south of Wilmington. It is a part of the Wilmington, Delaware Metropolitan Statistical Area, which does help the cause, but you’d probably end up saving money by moving your pickup or delivery location to Wilmington instead of sticking to Middletown. Auto transporters can save money by servicing multiple customers in a large area; there likely aren’t going to be a lot of people moving into or out of Middletown, which would increase their costs and therefore increase your prices.
Auto shippers also prefer to stick to major interstate highways. Middletown, as mentioned, sits along U.S 301 and also Route 1, the main north-south route through Delaware. Both provide access to a number of cities and towns across the state, but these are small towns – the only big city in Delaware, really, is Wilmington, which is accessible via Interstate 95, a major corridor through the region. Auto shippers would likely prefer to stay close to I-95, which means, again, that you could save money by moving your pickup or delivery location to Wilmington instead of staying in Middletown. You’ll want to verify with your shipping company, of course.
