Car Transport to Montgomery, Alabama
Montgomery is the capital of the state of Alabama and currently sits as the county seat of Montgomery County. Home to a population of over 205,000 residents, Montgomery is the second-largest city in the state, after Birmingham, and also anchors the Montgomery Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is home to over 374,500 residents. Montgomery was founded in the early 19th century and was incorporated in 1819, and named the state capital in 1846. Though ravaged by the Civil War and Reconstruction, during the 20th century Montgomery became a center of the Civil Rights Movement, and in recent years a renewed interest in southern manufacturing has led to a revitalization of the city’s downtown core, which has begun to attract new residents and businesses.
As mentioned, Montgomery anchors the Montgomery Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is home to oover 375,500 residents. While not the largest metro area in Alabama, let alone the United States, the Montgomery area does see its fair share of car transport traffic. Auto shippers prefer to run routes into and out of major metropolitan areas and major cities because that’s where the customers tend to be. By sticking close to areas with lots of people, car shipping carriers can easily keep their trucks full without having to spend too much time between customers, which lowers how much time they have between paychecks. This tends to mean lower prices and faster services into and out of larger cities, and as the second-largest in Alabama, Montgomery is a fairly popular area in the state.
But it’s not just major cities and metropolitan areas that car shipping carriers prefer – it’s also major interstates. As the main conduits between the individual states, the Interstate Highway System is the go-to for carriers that are planning routes. Sticking to major interstate highways tends to result in lower fuel consumption, which means lower overall fuel costs, and since they connect all the major cities in the U.S. together it’s easy enough to get from one big customer base to another. Montgomery sits along both I-65 and I-85, both of which are important routes through Alabama. This ease-of-access leads to lower prices and, usually, faster pickup and delivery windows for you as a customer.
The climate of Montgomery is much like the rest of the Gulf Coast – warm, wet springs followed by hot, humid summers and short, warm autumn. Snow is rare, but rain is common in the spring and summer, and sometimes tropical storms can cause problems, but that’s rare. On the whole, the weather – unlike in other areas of the country, particularly the northeast – won’t cause many delays, if any at all, when it comes to getting a vehicle into or out of the city. This is good news for you as it helps keep prices down year-round and helps to eliminate some of the seasonal features of shipping vehicles through more varied climates.
