Like Chicago, in Illinois, Indiana’s major cities are all linked to Indianapolis, which is widely known as the Crossroads of America. Four major interstates all run through Indianapolis, including Interstate 70, a widely-used and important part of the Interstate Highway System. I-70 passes through many major metro areas along its route, including Richmond, Indianapolis and Terre Haute within Indiana. Northern areas of the state are serviced by I-69 in the east, which runs through Fort Wayne and heads all the way to Lansing, Michigan, as well as I-65, which runs northwest into Chicago and south into Louisville, Kentucky and Nashville, Tennessee. I-74 also runs through the city of Indianapolis, running from Cincinnati northwest into the city before turning west and heading into Illinois and then into Iowa, servicing the Davenport metro area.
What all these interstates do for your car shipping quote is make it lower. As car transporters are able to not just get into Indianapolis from a variety of different areas, but most major cities in Indiana as well including Terre Haute, Fort Wayne, Lafayette and Gary. This allows shippers to not only get into and out of these metro areas more quickly and easily, but also allows them freedom to choose other places to go. Unlike states like Iowa and North Dakota, which only offer two or three major interstates that see hundreds of miles between major cities (and thus new customers), Indiana offers auto shippers a wealth of different potential routes and many areas where customers are shipping to and from. All this culminates – usually – in lower shipping prices in and out of major areas of Indiana as well as faster pickup times because of the abundance of carriers running routes.
