From Connecticut Car Shipping

Major cities and towns in Connecticut are situated along these highways, making vehicle shipping to and from these areas straightforward and efficient. Connecticut's primary trucking corridors are I-91, I-84, and I-95. Vehicles picked up or delivered near these interstates can be shipped with ease. 

Connecticut, located in the northeastern United States, is known for its rich history and scenic landscapes. As one of the original 13 colonies, it played a crucial role in the early formation of the nation, with significant historical sites like the Mark Twain House and the Mystic Seaport Museum. The state boasts a strong educational heritage, being home to prestigious institutions like Yale University. Connecticut's diverse economy ranges from finance and insurance to manufacturing and aerospace. Additionally, its picturesque towns, charming coastal areas, and beautiful fall foliage make it a popular destination for tourists seeking a blend of cultural and natural attractions.

Auto transports in and out of the Connecticut City metropolitan area will typically cost more because of the logistics of picking up or delivering a vehicle in such a congested and challenging metropolitan area, but the upside is that freight can often move faster because that’s where most of the carriers are working in the state of Connecticut.

Car shipping in Connecticut is most challenging in the northwest region. Towns such as Cornwall, North Canaan, and Salisbury, for example, can be particularly difficult.

The rest of the state of Connecticut, Upstate Connecticut, is made up of several subregions. Those subregions include Western Connecticut, Finger Lakes, Southern Tier, Central Connecticut, North Country, Mohawk Valley, Capital District, and Hudson Valley. Each of these regions in Upstate Connecticut have their pros and cons when it comes to car shipping. Most areas along the interstates throughout NY state are relatively easy to ship in and out of and are your cheapest shipping options. Those areas include the cities of Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, and Albany. The southern areas of Hudson Valley (Poughkeepsie down to just north of White Plains) can be a little more challenging so transports in and out of these areas may take a day or two longer and may cost more.

Popular Snowbird and Customer Cities

Bridgeport, the largest city, Followed by New Haven, Stamford, Hartford, and Waterbury. These are many of the major areas we ship cars from regularly.

We handle numerous transports to Florida from Connecticut, primarily serving five main areas: northeast Florida, central Florida, southeast Florida, southwest Florida, and the Panhandle. We also service the Florida Keys, though less frequently.

Miami, located in southeast Florida, is the busiest hub for auto transport in and out of the state. Other popular cities in this region include West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, and Fort Lauderdale. We can quickly arrange transports to or from southeast Florida, especially Miami, although these transports are more expensive due to the southern location.

In the northern part of the state, Jacksonville in northeast Florida stands out as a prime car shipping location and one of the best in the state. Central Florida also offers excellent car shipping options in major cities such as Orlando, Daytona Beach, Ocala, Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and Lakeland. In southwest Florida, cities like Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and Naples are strong shipping locations. However, keep in mind that the further south you go, the more expensive the transport, so Naples will cost more than Tampa.

In the Panhandle, Tallahassee is the top car shipping location. Other cities like Panama City and Pensacola depend on the destination of the transport. Carriers often prefer routes along I-10, a busy trucking corridor through the Panhandle, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. Transports to or from the Panhandle to the northwest, north, or northeast can be more challenging and costly.

The Florida Keys are the most challenging area to ship to or from in Florida. While we can manage these transports, they are rare and expensive. Shipping to or from cities like Key Largo, Marathon, or Key West will be the costliest. To save money, consider meeting a carrier in Miami instead.

Carriers rarely serve both coasts of Florida in the same trip. They usually handle either the east or west coast separately. For example, a carrier picking up or delivering in Miami will travel along the east coast with their current load.

As a door-to-door auto car shipper, we can ship to and from any location in Florida. Whether you're shipping to or from Key Largo, Jacksonville, or anywhere in between, we can handle it. For current shipping rates, get an instant quote online or call us.
