Car Shipping to Colchester, Vermont
Colchester is a town (not a city) located in Chittenden County, in the U.S. state of Vermont. It is currently home to a population of over 17,000 residents and is a part of the Burlington, Vermont Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is the largest in the state and anchored by the largest city in the state as well. Colchester is widely considered to be the most prominent suburb of Burlington, and ranks as the fourth-largest city in the state despite being home to such a small total population. Colchester is one of the smallest cities in the U.S. to still ranks within a state’s top-five largest cities.
Vermont is not a popular car transport location, and Colchester is no exception to that. Auto shippers want to run routes into and out o major cities and metropolitan areas because that’s where the larges concentrations of customers tend to be. By sticking close to major cities, they can quickly service multiple customers in an area, which means lower transit costs and also lower prices for customers. Colchester really doesn’t enjoy this advantage; with just over 17,000 residents in the city proper, in an area of just under 200,000, it’s not all that likely that they’re going to find a lot of loads, which means that carriers are going to make less money on routes into and out of Colchester.
It helps a bit that Burlington sits right along I-89, which is the main interstate through northern and western Vermont. However, I-89 doesn’t see a lot of auto shipping traffic because of how few major cities it runs through, which means that even though Colchester enjoys easy access to the Interstate Highway System, it’s so far out of the way that carriers are going to have to charge more despite the interstate that runs through it. It’s also close to the Canadian border, which carriers really don’t like due to how north it is; Colchester is not close to any major U.S. cities outside of maybe New York City, which is about 350 miles, or a full day’s drive for most carriers.
