Across the Map: Michigan Vehicle Shipping Services
The state of Michigan is located in the Great Lakes region of the U.S., ranking 11th in total area and 9th in total population among the 50 states. Michigan is the only state comprised of two peninsulas and because of this the state of Michigan features the longest freshwater coastline of any political subdivision (city, state, county, country, province, etc) in the entire world. It is verified fact that, when in Michigan, you are never more than six miles from a source of natural water. Michigan’s long coastlines among its two peninsulas make it an extremely popular tourist destination, as many people love to travel to Michigan for boating and other water-based recreational activities, particularly in the Upper Peninsula where the industrial influence is lessened. Michigan is perhaps best known for Detroit, the home of the Big Three automakers (Ford, General Motors and Chrysler), and for its large role in the industrialization of the Great Lakes region during the early-mid 20th century.

When transporting a vehicle to or from Michigan it’ll likely be a lot cheaper and easier and faster if you ship to cities in the Lower Peninsula as opposed to the UP because of the fact that it’s closer, more heavily developed and easier to get around. The Upper Peninsula has only one interstate, I-75, running through it, and even then it’s only through the easternmost portions before heading into Canada. I-75 is the most important interstate in the Lower Peninsula, as it connects Detroit with the rest of the U.S. and allows auto transporters to access most other parts of Michigan as well, as there are many roads and routes out of Detroit that I-75 connects with. Cities like Detroit and Lansing will be easier to ship to and cheaper as well, though Michigan is hardly the cheapest state to transport vehicles to, particularly in the winter months when everything’s frozen and snowed over (well, usually). As it sits so far north it sees plenty of extreme weather in the winter months, so summer shipping may well be cheaper – at the very least it’ll be easier for transporters to find a carrier to transport your vehicle to Michigan.
