Across the Map: Tennessee Car Transport Services
The state of Tennessee is located in the Southeastern region of the United States. Though Tennessee ranks 36th in the U.S. for total area, it ranks 16th for population – it is the home for 6.5 million Americans. Tennessee has roots in the Watauga Association, which was the first organized body of government west of the Appalachian Mountains (and the first to be considered independent of the British Crown, as it was first organized before the American Revolution). Its fertile soil led to a large agrarian economy taking hold during the first part of the 19th century. Tennessee would furnish more soldiers for the Union and the Confederacy during the Civil War than any other state, and it was the last to leave the U.S. and the first to be readmitted following the Civil War. Read more about Tennessee via the state’s official website.
Historically steeped in transportation and logistics, thanks to its agrarian economy during the 19th century, Tennessee has several major interstates running through it that connect to the largest cities in the state. For starters, I-40 runs east-west and connects Memphis, the largest city in the state, with Nashville and other cities east of it. Memphis is also serviced by I-55, a major north-south interstate in the region, and other major interstates include I-65, which runs through Nashville and Franklin, and both I-59 and I-75, which both run north-south and both service Chattanooga, which is located in the southeastern portion of Tennessee.
When shipping a vehicle to or from the state you’ll find that staying to the major metropolitan areas and larger cities will net you cheaper prices in the long run. Car shipping services depend heavily on where you are shipping from and to and the available routes and carriers; areas that are difficult to get to or that do not have an interstate highway running through them tend to be more expensive than areas that do. Tennessee, however, has quite a few major metro areas, at least in the sense of popularity in the car shipping industry, so transport prices to or from most population centers in the state should not be too bad.
