What to Know About Shipping Cars to Miami
Miami is one of the most popular auto transport locations in the United States. It is not just popular in auto transport, though; it is a world city and a real microcosm of the entire United States. Many different cultures interact in the city, which ironically is not that large – Miami proper is rather small in comparison to other large cities, but it has a sprawling and vast metropolitan area that has more than 5.5 million residents and incorporates such cities as Fort Lauderdale, Pompano Beach, West Palm Beach, and Boca Raton, among others. The Miami metropolitan area is sprawling, which makes it great if you’re transporting a vehicle to or from there because it is easy to get to and from and there are a lot of customers nearby that carriers can schedule for pickup. Miami has one of the highest amounts of auto transport routes going to, from and through it in the U.S.
There are several major interstates that run through Miami and the Miami metro area. I-75 and I-95 are the two main interstates that run through the Miami metro area. I-95 runs right through Miami and continues north along the coast, servicing Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach. I-75, technically a north-south interstate, runs north-south on the western border of the state before turning north-south, bisecting Florida entirely, and entering Miami from the west. Florida is relatively easy for carriers to run routes into or out of, which is great because it keeps prices lower and allows for service to many areas of the state.
