Car Transport to Gary, Indiana
Gary is a city located in Lake County, in the U.S. state of Indiana. It is currently home to over 80,200 residents, which makes it the ninth-largest city in the state. It was once home to over 178,000, during the peak of American manufacturing in the 1960’s. Though car transport to Gary should not be hard to find, given it’s just 25 miles away from Chicago, it’s still hard to find due to lack of demand. Sadly, there has been a massive exodus from Gary that is not unlike the exodus out of Detroit during the 80’s and 90’s. High crime and low employment stemming from a loss of manufacturing is mostly to blame, but their impact on shipments to Gary cannot be understated.
Is car transport to Gary popular?
In terms of auto shipping services Gary should not cost any more than shipping to Chicago would. Its proximity to the nation’s third-largest city is definitely a factor in prices and available shipping services, and they will be as abundant as those to Chicago. The issue is demand from customers. Gary sees a lot more outgoing traffic than incoming, which is problematic if you’re shipping a car there. Shipping out of Gary shouldn’t be hard, especially considering how many vehicles flow out of Chicago.
Typically, Chicago is the better bet. For one, there’s a lot more freight there, so carriers are going there anyway. Two, it’s not even an hour away, so many people can meet a carrier in Chicago and then drive back to Gary. But most importantly, it makes it so that a carrier doesn’t have to deviate. Sure it’s not far, but with Gary, well…sadly, people try to avoid Gary. It has a reputation for high crime and intolerance that has come from a massive loss of employment. If a carrier can stay away from the area, they typically will. You can help them do that, too, by moving your pickup location to somewhere more easily accessible. At the very least it should draw more interest resulting in faster dispatch and pickup times.
