Car Transport to Las Cruces, New Mexico
Las Cruces is a city in and the county seat of Dona Ana County, in the U.S. state of New Mexico. Home to a population of over 101,200 residents, Las Cruces is the second-largest city in the state and the largest in southern New Mexico, and sits as the economic center of the Mesilla Valley, a fertile agricultural region that spans all the way to El Paso, Texas. A major economic and agricultural center of New Mexico, Las Cruces sits near the White Sands Test Facility as well as White Sands Missile Range. Las Cruces is also the home of New Mexico State University, the only land-grand university in the state and a major part of the city’s economy.
Las Cruces anchors its own metropolitan area which spans all of Dona Ana County, and is a part of the larger Las Cruces-El Paso Combined Statistical Area, home to over a million residents and spanning two states. Las Cruces and El Paso are larger cities in their respective states, but their location so far south doesn’t do them any favors when it comes to shipping a vehicle to or from either. Auto transporters do like to run routes into and out of major metro areas, and Las Cruces is the second-largest city in the state of New Mexico, but Santa Fe and Albuquerque tend to be more popular areas, the former because it’s the state capital and the latter because it’s the largest in the state. Because of Las Cruces’ location, as well as its dedication to the military-industrial complex, it sees a lot of transportation services for military members, but not as much for everyday civilians.
It does help that Interstate 10, a major east-west interstate that services the southern U.S., runs right through Las Cruces. While there are stretches of I-10 that see little auto transport traffic, its routes across the country makes it popular with car carriers and the fact that it connects some of the largest cities in the southern United States together makes it even more accessible to those different auto transport companies. While Las Cruces’ isolation in southern New Mexico can increase your price, its location along I-10 should help mitigate that, though finding a carrier may be a bit more difficult due to the lack of popularity of New Mexico as an auto transport location.
The weather likely won’t have any impact on your shipment, not the way that it does when you’re shipping into or out of areas that are prone to snow. The summer is the busy season in the auto transport industry, and through many areas prices tend to drop since demand increases and carriers have an easier time finding loads. Some areas see logjams – too many customers and not enough carriers – which results in increased prices, but Las Cruces doesn’t have this problem most times of the year. The weather, even during the winter months, should help to keep your shipping prices a bit more competitive.
