Across the Map: Maryland Car Transport Services
The state of Maryland is the ninth-smallest state in the Union in terms of total area, though with a population of over 5.8 million residents it ranks 19th in total population and 5th in population density. Much of Maryland’s population lives in the Baltimore and Washington, D.C. metropolitan areas, despite the fact that D.C. technically isn’t a part of Maryland; rather, it’s a district that was originally created from land given up by both Maryland and Virginia, though Virginia got its back and Maryland didn’t. As such areas like Silver Spring, Bethesda and Gaithersburg are all major transportation locations despite being less-than-major cities. Maryland is a major transportation location as well because of Baltimore, the largest city in the state and the anchor of the largest metro area in the state as well. Read more about Maryland via the state’s official website.
When transporting a vehicle to or from Maryland your best bet will likely be to ship to or from Baltimore or the D.C. area if you’re concerned about price or pickup times. Car transporters prefer to run routes to and from major metropolitan area, and cities like Salisbury (in the eastern panhandle), Mechanicsville and Westminster really don’t fit the bill. But it’s not just major metro areas carriers like to run routes in and out of; they also prefer sticking close to the major interstates, as that’s where most of their money is made. Interstate transportation takes place along the interstate highways, which is only logical, and because of this areas that are off the interstate or difficult for shippers to get in or out of (or to make money going to or from) will not be nearly as cheap as going to or from major metro areas. Just something to keep in mind. Also, you can read more about transport to or from Maryland via our helpful Maryland auto transport profile page.
