How Shipping Cars to Milwaukee Works
Milwaukee, Wisconsin is a city that is home to almost 600,000 residents, which is actually fairly large – it ranks 30th in the U.S. in total population, which definitely helps when it comes to moving vehicles into or out of the city of Milwaukee. Most auto transport carriers prefer running routes to, from and through major metropolitan areas, and Milwaukee definitely counts as a major metro area – it sits in the center of the Milwaukee-Waukesha-West Allis Metropolitan Statistical Area, which has a population of over 1.5 million residents. What helps when shipping to or from Milwaukee is the fact that it’s only about 100 miles away from Chicago, which means a lot of carriers running routes through Chicago (which is one of the largest and most popular auto transport locations in the northern U.S.) would be willing to head up to Milwaukee for a bit of extra cash.
During the winter months it might be a bit more difficult to find carriers to run routes into or out of Milwaukee, mainly because of the snow. Like most of Wisconsin, Milwaukee sees its fair share of snowfall, and while most of the time carriers shouldn’t have too bad a time moving up or down I-94 (which connects Milwaukee to Chicago) during the winter, sometimes the weather can get brutal and cause delays. Prices may be a bit higher in the winter months than the summer months, as there are fewer carriers moving to or from Milwaukee as well. If you were willing to ship your vehicle to Chicago, you may save a bit of money on your transport, though you would most likely have to drive it the 100 miles up to Milwaukee if that’s where you’re wanting to get the vehicle to.
