Car Transport to Metro Minneapolis and St. Paul
The Minneapolis-St. Paul Metropolitan Statistical Area is the largest in the state of Minnesota and is known colloquially as the “Twin Cities”. The two cities sit close to each other geographically and the metro area spans not only those two cities but also many smaller communities and bedroom cities that surround it. Minneapolis is the larger of the two cities, though St. Paul is the capital of the entire state. The Minneapolis-St. Paul area is by far the most popular vehicle shipping location in the state of Minnesota, a state that is not necessarily known for its popular vehicle shipping locations, at least outside of its major cities.
Auto transporters like to run routes to and from major cities, and the Minneapolis-St. Paul area is fairly large – it’s home to over 3.4 million residents, after all, which means there are a lot of potential customers in the region. Car transport to metro Minneapolis is therefore easier to find, but the state’s isolation in the far north tends to increase prices for most customers along most major routes, since there isn’t a lot around the Minneapolis area that is easily accessible. The closest comparable city to Minneapolis and St. Paul is Milwaukee, in Wisconsin, and there’s not much to the west.
The weather doesn’t help much, either. Minnesota is known for its brutal winters, and Minneapolis is no exception. This can make car transport to metro Minneapolis and St. Paul a lot more expensive and time consuming, and can lead to major delays. Luckily, most times of the year the major routes into and out of the city are clear, and auto transporters can easily travel along routes such as I-35 and I-94 to directly access the metro area. Not only that, but several other major interstates, including I-90, run routes near the city, giving carriers easier access. Its remoteness will still need to be factored into your overall price, but at the very least auto shippers can easily get from one part of the Minneapolis metro area to another easily, and can get into and out of it quickly so as to save money on their operating costs.
