Across the Map: Rhode Island Car Shipping Services
Rhode Island (officially known as the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations), is a state located in the New England region of the United States. It is the smallest state by area and ranks 43rd in terms of total population figures in the country. However, its population density is actually second-highest in the U.S. despite the small population numbers; this is because the land area is so much smaller than any other state – if more people lived in the state, even just a few million, it likely could skew the statistics and could conceivably put Rhode Island #1 on the population density list.

Normally population density is a telling statistic when determining the auto transport popularity of a certain city, state or geographical area. However, population density by itself only gives a portion of the whole story – you need more information to truly determine how popular a city or region is when it comes to the car shipping industry. Typically, population numbers, how big the metro area is, how many people are moving in and out annually, how easy cities or regions are to actually get to and from, how many interstates run through them, whether or not it’s a popular location for car transport trucks, etc – there’s a lot to determining how popular a given location is in the vehicle shipping industry.
What’s nice is that that’s where shipping to Rhode Island is actually easier – Providence, the capital and largest city of the state, is located just an hour southwest of Boston, and Boston is a major auto transportation hub in the New England region. It’s easy enough for car shippers to quickly make their way through Providence and into Boston, thanks in large part to I-95, which is the most heavily traveled interstate in the car shipping industry as it links the two largest auto transport locations, New York City and Miami, together in one straight line, and extends past New York City into New England and ultimately ending at the U.S./Canadian border in Maine. This route makes it so much easier to get to the far northeastern regions of the country that it helps to keep prices during the spring and summer much lower than most routes. During the winter prices are likely to rise a bit, as New England is prone to harsh winter weather that can wreak havoc on auto transporters.
