Car Shipping Services to Battle Creek, MI
Battle Creek is a city in the U.S. state of Michigan, specifically in Calhoun County. It is home to over 52,000 residents, though it anchors a metropolitan area with a population three times that. Battle Creek was founded near the site of a small skirmish between American explorers and the local Native Americans; according to the story, two young natives attacked a Federally-sanctioned survey party in the area, leading to a quick fight (and subsequent white victory). A year later, the first settlers came to the area, and named it Battle Creek after the skirmish. Though small, Battle Creek is perhaps most famous for being the location of the Kellogg Company’s world headquarters; the company was founded in Battle Creek in 1906. It is, oddly enough, also the headquarters of Post Foods and Ralston Foods, also major cereal and foodstuff corporations. You can read more about Battle Creek at the city’s official website.
The city of Battle Creek sits just north of I-94, which is a fairly important interstate in the northern parts of the country. Located a couple of hours west of Detroit, Battle Creek also sits a few hours east of Chicago, which makes it a rather important stop along the Detroit-Chicago stretch of I-90/I-94. Battle Creek does not see much auto transportation traffic in the sense of customers going to or from there, but car transporters often pass by it on their east-west routes, particularly during the summer months when the weather is clear and the northern parts of the U.S. aren’t frozen. You’ll likely see cheaper prices for car shipping services to Battle Creek during the summer and fall months, and while winter pricing may be good as well, you’ll find that delays for shipment into and out of Battle Creek during the winter are more common than during the summer months.
Pickup times, of course, vary depending on where exactly you are shipping from or to regardless of the city, but in Battle Creek’s case you’ll likely find it’ll be a bit cheaper to ship to or from nearby major areas. Battle Creek, unfortunately, sits a few hours west of Detroit as mentioned above; however, Kalamazoo, which is only twenty miles or so away, is a larger area and sees even more transport traffic on the customer side than anywhere else in the area. Kalamazoo may be a bit cheaper to ship to or from if you’re willing to make the trip, and the extra hundred bucks you stand to save on your shipment will easily pay for any gas you have to buy to get there.
