Auto Transport Tips to and from Monongahela
Monongahela, as mentioned sits only about 20 miles – if that – south of Pittsburgh proper, placing it firmly within the Pittsburgh Metropolitan Statistical Area. This is good news if you’re searching for auto transport services to or from the city, as it’s proximity to the second-largest city in the state tends to keep prices lower and pickup or delivery times faster. At the same time, Monongahela is hardly the most popular vehicle shipping location in Pennsylvania – and is pretty low in terms of popularity among the bedroom cities surrounding Pittsburgh – so you may end up saving money by moving your pickup or delivery out of Monongahela and into an area more easily accessible by auto shippers.
Part of why this is the case is because Monogahela does not sit along any major interstate highways, which is one of the easiest and fastest ways that car transport companies have of getting around the country. Running routes along major interstates through major cities and metro areas keeps prices lower for carriers, as they can pickup or deliver multiple vehicles in a single area – this is why they go where the customers go, and take the fastest routes to get there. Monongahela, with its size and lack of easy access, may be a bit more expensive despite being so close to Pittsburgh, but it also may not matter, so you’ll want to discuss your shipment with a live representative for more information.
