Car Transport to Metro Bakersfield, California
The Bakersfield Metropolitan Statistical Area, commonly known as Metro Bakersfield, is a census-designated metropolitan area anchored by the city of Bakersfield, California. It’s kind of in the name, to be honest. In practice the metro area is basically all of Kern County, of which Bakersfield is the county seat. Either way, car transport to metro Bakersfield (Kern County) shouldn’t be all that hard to find. It’s a fairly large city – not close to the size of the state’s largest, of course – and attracts a fair amount of customers. This is good as it helps to keep prices to and from metro Bakersfield stay low.
Is car transport to metro Bakersfield popular?
It doesn’t see the traffic that Los Angeles does, that’s for sure, but it’s not a desolate wasteland devoid of people, either. The metro area is home to almost 840,000 residents, so there’s a fair draw to the area from customers. Of course, Bakersfield is in the middle of the desert, which tends to turn some people off. Plus car transporters don’t like the desert, especially in the summer, because it cooks their truck. Literally. The heat can get so hot in the southwestern U.S. that auto transport trucks overheat. As such, only those carriers who have rigs built to withstand that kind of heat for long stretches venture there in the summer.
It does help tremendously that it sits right along Interstate 5, though. I-5 is the main north-south corridor through California, though it doesn’t pass through the Bay Area but rather Sacramento. Either way, it connects some of the largest cities in the state along one fairly straight stretch of interstate highway. High speeds yields better fuel economy for the trucks shipping cars, and the route has lots of high-profile shipping locations. As such, Bakersfield benefits because carriers can charge less to go there. They don’t have to go out of their way, can make a quick stop right off the interstate, and keep going to other major markets where there are plenty of customers. As such, their profits stay high even though their prices are competitive due to such high volume, potential or actual.
