Across the Map: Florida Car Shipping Services
The state of Florida is a popular auto transport destination, primarily because it has quite a high population and a high population density, particularly along the east coast. It ranks 4th in the country in total population and 8th in total population density, making it one of the most popular auto transport locations in the entire country. Much of the state’s 19.3 million residents live in the Miami metropolitan area, which is the largest in the state. Unlike most major cities, however, Miami itself is rather small, home to 413,000 residents, but its metro area spans 110 miles north-to-south, encompassing 1,100 square miles of land. It is, however, a rather thin strip of land between the Atlantic Ocean and the Everglades, and in some places the metro area is less than five miles east-to-west. This only adds to the popularity of the area, however, as it makes it extremely easy for auto transporters to get into and out of many areas, as the entire metropolitan area of Miami sits along I-95.

Interstate 95 is the main north-south interstate in Florida, running (roughly) from Miami proper up to the Canadian border with northern Maine. Though there is a long stretch in the Carolinas and southern Virginia that sees few major metro areas along the way, I-95 is a crucial corridor from the northern states down to Florida, particularly in the late summer and early fall when the snowbird shippers start coming out in force. Many transporters will run down I-95 and its western neighbor, I-75, which runs on the other side of the Appalachian Mountains through Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky and into Indiana and Illinois. Both of those interstates are major lifelines to the cities in Florida and popular routes as well, at least for car transporters, as they pass through areas of high population quite frequently. Shipping into Florida will generally be more expensive when shipping to cities within the central and northern parts of the state, though perhaps less so north as Interstate 10 runs along the northern border all the way to Jacksonville.
