All-Pro Auto Transport

Auto Transport To New Mexico

The state of New Mexico is a desert state located in the Southwestern United States. Though it is the fifth-largest state by total area, it ranks 36th in total population (which currently sits at just over two million residents), and 45th in total population density. Population density is a crucial statistic when it comes to transporting a vehicle to or from a state, as population density gives a great indicator of how many people live in major metro areas. New Mexico has few major metropolitan areas within it, and most of the state’s population is centered in one of three major cities: Albuquerque, Santa Fe or Las Cruces. This can make transporting a vehicle to or from the state more difficult, as there are few customers actually shipping to or from the major metro areas of New Mexico.

 

When transporting to or from New Mexico, you’ll likely find that the best prices for both will be when you’re shipping to or from Albuquerque. Albuquerque is the largest city in the state and is located near the middle of New Mexico; this means that every major interstate and transportation corridor in New Mexico runs through Albuquerque, including I-25 and I-40, the two main interstates that run through New Mexico. I-40 is popular for many auto transporters, though in the western parts of the U.S. I-40 can see little customer traffic, which means that car carriers may have to charge more to ship along that route. Prices are flexible only to a point; car carriers still have to make their money and be able to afford to keep their trucks in good repair.

 

Another area that may be cheaper to transport to or from is Las Cruces, as it sits right along the path of Interstate 10, a major east-west interstate that services the extreme southern parts of the country. I-10 is the most southern interstate and connects California to Florida. Las Cruces isn’t as popular an auto transport location, but because of its location many auto shippers find themselves running routes through the city regardless of if there’s any freight actually going to or coming out of Las Cruces (though typically there is, even if it’s only light traffic). You can score great deals throughout the year for shipments in or out of Las Cruces, provided the other city is a popular one.

 

New Mexico is not one of the more popular states to ship to or from, but it’s not impossible to find transportation services to or from the state considering that two main east-west interstates traverse it. Still, you should be prepared for higher-than-average pickup times and longer transit times even to the major cities. We recommend not shipping to the smaller areas of New Mexico – cities such as Alamogordo, Silver City and Roswell may be famous in their own right, but not when it comes to auto transportation services. With no easy access other than poorly-maintained state highways, smaller cities that aren’t part of any major metro area will be significantly more expensive and will likely take much longer to actually find auto transport services to or from.

Auto Transport To Maryland

The state of Maryland is the 19th largest in the U.S. in terms of total population, which currently sits at 5.9 million residents, and also ranks 42nd in total area yet 5th in total population density. Located in the Mid Atlantic region of the U.S., Maryland is grouped in with some of the most densely populated states in the Union, particularly Delaware and New Jersey, as it sits in one of the largest population centers in the Western Hemisphere. Maryland has several major cities that are easy to ship to and from, especially Baltimore which anchors a very large metropolitan area. Because of its size and history, Maryland has been known as a rather affluent state, particularly the western areas of the state.

 

Maryland has several major interstates running through it, but the most important is perhaps Interstate 95, which is one of the most important interstates in the entire country. I-95 runs from Miami all the way north, through no less than sixteen states, all the way up into Maine and into northeastern Canada (New Brunswick, to be precise). It connects some of the largest and most affluent – not to mention popular – cities in the United States, including Richmond, Washington D.C., Baltimore, Wilmington, Philadelphia, Trenton and New York City, just to name a few. I-95 gives auto transporters access to more people than some cross-country interstates.

 

Several other interstates run through Maryland as well, but they are more spurs than major interstate routes that auto shippers can routinely use. I-81, which services much of the western part of Virginia, services Hagerstown in the western Maryland panhandle, but that is really the only city it services in Maryland before heading north into Pennsylvania. I-70 is a major east-west interstate that shippers will actually use frequently when shipping from the western states into Maryland, as it traverses the western Panhandle and runs into Baltimore. These routes can help lower costs on your auto transportation services as well considering that more car carriers will be willing to take loads at more competitive rates due to the ease of access to areas such as Baltimore and Washington, D.C. Areas in the western portions of the state may be more expensive to ship to, particularly if they are rural in nature. Auto shippers have a harder time running routes to rural areas as there are typically fewer customers in the vicinity and therefore they have to drive further for a pickup or dropoff and it may not necessarily be cost effective.

 

Weather, however, can play a major role in your auto transportation prices, particularly during the winter months as Maryland has been known to experience frozen winters from time to time. Snow in many parts of the state is not uncommon between November and March, though because of its frequency many areas prepare thoroughly for winter weather, and thus it’s easier for car carriers to get in and out of the major metro areas within Maryland. Western Maryland may be more difficult for shippers to traverse, as it’s more rural than the eastern part of the state, so keep that in mind if you’re transporting a vehicle to or from Maryland during the winter months.

Auto Transport To Maine

The state of Maine is located in the far northeastern reaches of New England, east of New Hampshire. Maine is widely known for its scenery, particularly its jagged, rocky coastline and interior forests. Home to just over 1.3 million residents, Maine ranks 41st among the 50 states in terms of total population and 39th in total area, meaning it’s a relatively small state without a lot of people living there. Maine was hotly contested by both the British and the U.S. during the American Revolution and the War of 1812, when it was originally a territory of Massachusetts. Maine achieved statehood in 1820 thanks to the Missouri Compromise. Over the years the state’s population growth has been slow but steady, with many residents enjoying the peaceful, quiet life that comes with life in Maine, particularly away from the big cities such as Portland and Bangor.

The state of Maine is serviced by only one major interstate, I-95. It is lucky in the sense that I-95 is one of the most highly-used interstates by auto transporters due to its route and how many major metropolitan areas it passes through. Originating in Miami, Florida, I-95 travels north through sixteen different states on its way up to the Houlton-Woodstock Border Crossing in northeastern Maine. I-95 is popular because not only does it connect with almost every major east-west interstate in the U.S. but it runs through cities such as Jacksonville, Richmond, Trenton, New York City, Philadelphia, and more. Auto shippers routinely run routes up and down the east coast as New York to Florida is one of the most popular auto transport routes in the U.S., with literally tens of thousands of customers shipping up and down the coast every single year.

Maine’s transportation infrastructure is not nearly as developed as many other states’ due to the fact that outside of a few larger cities (Portland, Bangor, Augusta, et al) there aren’t a lot of people living in Maine and many of the roads to those smaller areas are rural in nature and not very well maintained. Maine’s transportation department is actually on top of the roads more than other states despite not seeing as much traffic on their roads. Because of the fact that Maine’s infrastructure is not as expansive as other states, it can be more expensive for auto shippers to run routes to various areas of the state, which in turn means higher costs for you.

It will almost always be cheaper, however, to ship to the major cities within Maine, particularly Portland as it’s in the southern areas of the state. Cities such as Augusta, Waterville and Bangor can be more expensive to ship to and from considering they are further north, which means carriers have to travel further into the state – and that means a longer trek back out when they inevitably go somewhere else. Auto shippers don’t see a lot of customers moving vehicles to or from Maine, at least not on a regular basis; most transportation to and from Maine will be done during the summer, as the winter weather that Maine routinely sees – particularly heavy, deep snows from December to early March – can cause delays and even dissuade shippers from going there at all.

Auto Transport to Orlando, Florida

Orlando, FLOrlando’s weather is hot and rainy during summer while cold and dry during winter. The weather make it a great place to vacation. Orlando is often referred to as “The Theme Park Capital of the World” as it is home to the Walt Disney World Resort, Universal Studios Florida and SeaWorld Orlando. It is not only the theme parks who make Orlando a popular destination, there are over 2,000 lakes in the Greater Orlando area too. Because of its year round recreational activities, Orlando broke a record for hosting more than 55 million visitors this past year. Just like it is popular for tourists, Orlando is very popular for auto transporting too.

Orlando is a great place to transport your car from or to. Interstate 4 crosses through Orlando making it an accessible area for auto transporters. Because of its high visitor traffic, it is always good to remember that there might be exceptions and you will need to meet up with your auto shipper at a parking lot or shopping center nearby. In general, the residential streets are often wide enough for the auto mover to get to your address. Orlando is specially easy and fast to ship your auto because there are thousands of auto transporters who are based out of Orlando and are readily available to do your car transportation.
