Across the Map: New Mexico Car Transport Services
Though located in the southwestern United States, New Mexico is often considered part of the Mountain States due to the southern Rocky Mountains actually ending within the northern parts of the state. New Mexico is the fifth-largest state by area in the U.S., though it ranks 36th in terms of population and 45th in population density. It is home to over two million residents and is known for its high populations of Hispanic and Native American peoples. It was originally a part of Spain, then Mexico, then a U.S. territory before finally becoming a U.S. state. Oddly enough, New Mexico actually came before Mexico; at the time of its discovery, the Spanish explorers who found the area believed it to be home to wealthy native tribes like the Aztec, whom the Spanish knew as the Mexica Empire. Mexico was known as New Spain until it became Mexico in 1822. Read more about New Mexico.
When transporting a vehicle to or from New Mexico you’ll likely find that prices to Albuquerque or Las Cruces are going to be the cheapest. That’s because there are only two main interstates that run through New Mexico, one going north-south (I-25) and one going east-west (I-10). Both I-10 and I-25 intersect in Albuquerque, which is likely where most everyone will find the best rates both in and out of New Mexico. Auto transporters prefer to run routes through major metro areas along major interstates, and while Albuquerque is home to over 550,000 residents, it’s not the largest city in the country nor is it all that popular of a transport destination for most folks. Auto shippers routinely run routes along I-10, so they’re often going through Albuquerque. Summer prices will likely be more expensive than winter prices due to the influx of auto transport customers during the summer shipping season.
Summer, however, will likely be the best time to transport your vehicle weather-wise. During the summer months is when New Mexico sees the most sunshine, though winter weather really isn’t all that bad if you stay away from the more mountainous regions. On the whole you will find that, unlike most areas of the country, New Mexico car transport services aren’t as affected by inclement weather, as it’s nice a lot of the time there. Auto shippers are more willing to run routes year-round through southern states due to the fact that snow is less common.
