Car Shipping to the Providence Metro Area
The Providence metropolitan area is a metro area centered around Providence, Rhode Island. By population it is 37th-largest metropolitan area in the United States and is currently home to over 1.6 million residents spread across eight counties and two states. The metro area’s population is actually larger than that of the entire state of Rhode Island. It is also a part of the Boston Combined Statistical Area, the fifth-largest CSA in the country. On the whole, car shipping to the Providence metro area is easy to find and generally fairly cost-effective for carriers, which helps to reduce overall transportation prices for them and results in lower prices for you as well.
Auto shippers want to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas in order to maintain access to a number of different customers across multiple states and metro areas. This ease of access makes it a lot easier for them to keep their prices more competitive, which is good because the auto transport industry is as competitive as any other, and in some ways more so. Carriers have to constantly adjust their prices toward the low end, and many operate on razor-thin profits in order to keep their trucks fueled and on the road. So big cities and metro areas are important for them to avoid deadhead, which is open spaces on their truck. Car shipping to the Providence metro area makes this easier, particularly because it’s easy to access and sits just north of New York City and its metro area, and also just south of Boston and its metro area.
It really helps that Providence sits right along Interstate 95, the main north-south interstate along the east coast. It stretches from Miami, Florida all the way up to the Canadian border at Houlton, Maine. This gives carriers access to some of the largest metro areas in the entire country including Miami, Jacksonville, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York City, Providence and Boston, among others. This makes car shipping to the Providence metro area even easier, resulting in faster transit times and lower prices most all the time. During the winter the area can see some increased prices due to the bad weather, but it depends on the forecast and how much snow is on the ground, so talk to your agent about winter car shipping for more.
