Car Transport to Mobile, Alabama
Mobile (pronounced “mo-beel”, not “mo-bill”), is a city in as well as the county seat of Mobile County, in the U.S. state of Alabama. It is currently home to a population of over 195,100 residents, making it the third-largest city in the state by total population. Mobile is Alabama’s only saltwater port, which immediately makes the city a major economic center in the state, particularly for maritime industries such as overseas trading, fishing, and more. Since its founding Mobile has been a major trading center as well and is currently the 12th-largest port of entry in the United States. Its large size and diverse economy generally makes the area more popular in terms of auto shipping services, which usually means finding car transport to Mobile, Alabama really isn’t all that difficult during most times of the year.
The reason why it’s generally easy to ship to or from Mobile is the fact that car transporters want to stay on routes that take them into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas. Of course, there are larger cities than Mobile, even within Alabama, but that doesn’t mean Mobile is not a popular shipping location. Carriers can easily stop in Mobile to pickup or deliver a vehicle or two, then head north on a number of available routes to stop in other major cities such as Montgomery, Birmingham and Huntsville, which all just so happen to sit along I-55, which makes car transport to Mobile a lot easier to do from a carrier’s point of view.
I-55 is a major interstate highway that terminates in Mobile at its junction with I-10, itself a major east-west interstate stretching from Los Angeles to Jacksonville, Florida. In other words, Mobile is at the intersection of two major interstate highways, which means it’s a natural focal point for people who use those interstates to conduct business. Auto shippers have an easy time providing car transport to Mobile thanks to the interstate highways – remember, carriers like big cities because it’s where their freight tends to congregate, and getting from one big city to another quickly helps them save even more money. This in turn allows them to lower their prices to their customers, in order to keep their prices and services competitive.
