Across the Map: Delaware Auto Shipping
The state of Delaware is close to a lot of major metropolitan areas and as such many people consider Delaware to be in the same vein as New Jersey or New York City in terms of how popular of an auto transport location Delaware is. This is actually somewhat of a misnomer, as the state only has one interstate that runs through it. However, it does help that it’s Interstate 95, perhaps the most prominent and most heavily traveled interstate east of the Appalachian Mountains. I-95 is the lifeblood of the east coast auto transport industry, and many carriers will utilize it to travel up and down the coast on a daily basis. While many pass through Delaware, they don’t often head into the state itself.
I-95 only runs through the northernmost part of Delaware, passing through Wilmington which is the largest city in the state. When shipping to or from Delaware you’re going to save some serious time and money if you ship into Wilmington, as few carriers would be willing to travel further down Route 1 into southern Delaware in order to drop a vehicle off. There are few major areas along Route 1 and carriers can’t make as much if they deviate too far from their routes; therefore, they’ll typically stay on I-95 and pickup or deliver only to Wilmington or another area along the interstate. This can be inconvenient, sure, but picking up or dropping off in Wilmington can save you a lot of time and hassle down the line – and money, as it will generally be cheaper to ship there than just about anywhere else in Delaware.
