Car Shipping to Toledo, Ohio
Toledo is a city in as well as the county seat of Lucas County, in the U.S. state of Ohio. It is currently home to a population of over 287,200 residents, making it the fourth-largest city in Ohio after Columbus, Cincinnati and Cleveland. It is also the anchor of the larger Toledo, Ohio Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is home to over 651,000 residents. Founded after the conclusion of the Toledo War, in 1837, Toledo grew into a major manufacturing center during the latter half of the 19th century and into the first half of the 20th. Today, much of its manufacturing has disappeared, and today it is known for its diverse economy and its glass industry which is still flourishing.
Car shipping to Toledo may not be as popular as shipping to or from the larger cities in the state and the surrounding region, but it’s still affordable and economic nonetheless. Auto transporters like to stick close to major cities and metropolitan areas, and while Toledo isn’t as large as Cleveland, to the east, or Detroit, to the north, it’s still a fairly popular auto transport hub. Car shipping to Toledo is actually made easier by its proximity to other large cities, notably Cleveland and Detroit as we mentioned, as carriers can easily run routes through Toledo while on their way to even larger cities and markets.
Both I-75 and I-90 are major interstate highways in the United States, and it just so happens that both of them run through Toledo. This makes car shipping to Toledo a lot easier for both carriers and customers – carriers can easily get into and out of Toledo while staying on major interstates, and customers enjoy lower, more competitive prices. Auto shippers want to stick to major interstates because it’s the fastest way around the country; not only that, but interstate highways often pass through major cities and their surrounding metropolitan areas, which means that even if they don’t have prior freight to pick up or deliver in an area they can roll into town, call around, find one, and then be on their way.
