Car Shipping Services to Tuscaloosa
Maybe somewhat surprisingly, the city of Tuscaloosa, Alabama is the fifth-largest city in Alabama by population, home to over 95,000 residents and an estimated metro area population of over 253,000 (it anchors the Tuscaloosa Metropolitan Statistical Area, after all). Home to the University of Alabama, which is a major contender in the NCAA Division I Bowl Championship Series, Tuscaloosa draws new residents every single year, and it’s easy to see the growth of the city through the census numbers – between 2000 and 2010, Tuscaloosa’s population grew by over 16%. Tuscaloosa has also been named as one of the most livable cities in the U.S. by the U.S. Conference of Mayors. Interested in learning more about Tuscaloosa?

Tuscaloosa is kind of a hit-or-miss area to ship a vehicle to or from, mainly because of its size and location. It helps that it’s only, at most, 60 miles away from Birmingham, the largest city in the state of Alabama, but it doesn’t help that Tuscaloosa is pretty darn small in auto transportation terms. The size of the city and its location within the state – as well as its proximity to other majorly populated areas and the interstate highway system – all play factors when it comes to pricing your shipment, and that’s something that you need to keep in mind. Tuscaloosa sits right along I-20, but Alabama isn’t nearly as popular a shipping location as, say, Texas. This is because Alabama itself only has a population of 4.8 million, with only a few scattered major metro areas and no cities with more than 250,000 residents. This can lead to longer pickup times for you as well as slightly higher prices, though for the right price you can ship your vehicle to or from anywhere in the state, including Tuscaloosa.
And that’s not to say that it’s impossible to ship to or from there; it just means it may take a bit longer to find an auto transporter willing to ship your vehicle. It’s about price and availability, and auto transport companies go where the customers are – this is why shipping to and from major populated areas and large cities tends to be cheaper and quicker than to and from smaller cities. It’s really subjective, at the end of the day, and your best bet would be to get some free auto transport quotes by filling out our free online quote form and you’ll get an instant price immediately right on your screen. You should ask us about carrier availability into or out of Tuscaloosa, as well as tips to save some money if you’re shipping on a budget (hint: they’ll likely tell you to get your car to Birmingham, as it sits along three major interstates and connects a lot of different areas together).
