Car Transport to the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area
The Lost Angeles Metropolitan Statistical Area is the second-largest metropolitan area in the United States and the largest on the West Coast. It is currently home to a population of over 12.2 million residents and sits at the core of the larger Los Angeles Combined Statistical Area, which is home to over 18.2 million residents. As you can likely guess, the anchor city of the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area is Los Angeles, which is the second-largest city in the United States and home to over 3.9 million residents. Metropolitan areas are popular among auto transport and car shipping companies, as they are densely populated areas that are chock full of potential customers, and are popular car transport locations as a result. This helps keep their prices lower, which in turn helps keep your prices lower.
There are a number of cities in the Los Angeles metro area – it spans numerous counties across roughly 4,800 square miles, after all. Some of the largest cities outside of Los Angeles include Anaheim, Santa Ana, Irvine, Glendale, Huntington Beach, Santa Clarita, and Long Beach, to name a few. Geographically, the Los Angeles metro area is one of the most popular areas in the car transport industry; full of customers and home to numerous auto transport companies (both brokers and carriers), Los Angeles is simply a major car shipping area. The weather is generally favorable year-round and the amount of people that are continuously coming and going make it a busy port-of-call among the many shipping companies in the industry today.
Los Angeles is not just a major car shipping hub, though; home to one of the largest ports on the west coast and numerous railroad lines and interstate highways, the entire L.A. metro area is a transportation and logistics hub unrivaled by any city west of the Mississippi River. Its rise as a major shipping center necessitated the construction of numerous routes of travel including several interstate highways. The two main north-south interstates through the Los Angeles Metropolitan Area are I-5 and I-15, with the former running up through Oregon and into Washington and I-15 servicing western Nevada and up into Idaho and Montana. I-10 is the main east-west route through the city, and within the metro area itself there are numerous auxiliary interstates that connect to a wide variety of neighborhoods and cities, which typically means that just about anywhere in the L.A. metro area will be priced competitively.
