What makes New Orleans a great place to ship is the fact that many carriers will travel there because of its high population and popularity as a transport destination. Lots of people transport vehicles to and from New Orleans every year despite the fact that it’s rather isolated, geographically, and can be a pain to get into or out of if you don’t know the best routes. Most carriers that run routes through New Orleans have done so for years, and as such they know the conditions of the route(s) they take and can better price your shipment and get it to you as quickly as possible. It helps that carriers can get there from several areas, including southwestern Mississippi, which may not be the most popular location but definitely helps the cause for people looking to ship to or from that area.
Carriers move vehicles into and out of New Orleans on a daily basis, and it also helps that aside from during the fall season prices stay relatively low year-round. Fall is hurricane season, starting in late July usually and running into October or November depending on the season. During hurricane time many carriers will up their prices into or out of New Orleans or won’t bother at all with going there, as inclement weather can wreak havoc on their trucks and the cars they transport.
