Car Transport Services to Daytona Beach, FL
Daytona Beach is a city on the east coast of Florida. Currently home to over 61,000 residents. It is a major part of the Deltona-Daytona Beach-Ormond Beach Metropolitan Area, which is home to just under 500,000 residents. Officially founded in 1871, Daytona Beach grew slowly, until the railroad came to town in 1886.
The railroad really helped Daytona Beach break out of its shell; tourism became a major industry, and by the 1920’s Daytona Beach had become known as “The World’s Most Famous Beach.” During this time, automobile racing became big in the area, particularly along the beach – its compact sand made for good racing at the time. Today, it is known primarily as the site of the Daytona 500, NASCAR’s annual first race venue. Read more about Daytona Beach here.
Daytona Beach sits right along Interstate 95, one of the most heavily-traveled interstates in the U.S. It sits just about 50 miles northeast of Orlando, one of the largest cities in the state of Florida and a major metropolitan area.
When shipping to or from Daytona Beach, a lot of carriers will likely go through Orlando along I-4, which connects Daytona Beach to both Orlando and Tampa, which sits further west. I-4 crosses the entire state of Florida and is a major corridor that allows auto transporters easy access to central Florida and the central coast cities, particularly Daytona Beach.
It also allows them access, via I-95, to metro areas both north and south of Daytona along I-95, particularly Jacksonville and Miami, respectively.
Daytona’s location along the coast, as well as the ease of access, makes it a popular area for auto shippers to run routes into and out of. Florida itself is perhaps the most popular auto transport state in the country, despite ranking 8th among all 50 states in total population.
There are several reasons for why Florida is so popular; for starters, it’s the main snowbird location – people like to move down to Florida and ride out the winter and early spring there, then move back to colder climes when the summer heat starts rolling in. Auto transporters feed off this movement and it allows for a lot of different shippers to get into the business.
This is also why there are more shippers based in Florida than any other state. For free auto transport quotes to or from Daytona Beach, fill out our free online quote request form.
