California car shipping services are some of the most sought-after in the United States. As the largest state by population in the country, it’s not surprising. Major cities like Los Angeles, San Jose, San Diego, and San Francisco, all see plenty of vehicle transport traffic, from both customers and carriers. This results in lower prices, faster shipments, and less time waiting. But it’s still important to understand California car shipping, as well as popular transport locations within the state.
Understanding California Car Shipping
Auto shippers want to run routes to and from popular locations. But what makes a location popular? Size, ease of access, and customer demand tend to be the main factors.
So when we take a look at California, we see that it definitely has the size to be a popular shipping location. It’s accessible via numerous interstates, especially the state’s largest cities. So ease of access to most areas is high. And, of course, as the largest state in the U.S. by population, it definitely has the customer demand factor down.
This means that shipping to all but the most remote areas of the state tends to be fast, easy, and affordable. There are times when there’s so much demand that carriers can’t keep up, which can result in logjams. Logjams raise prices and can result in longer wait times, but they tend to be rare. Also, logjams mostly occur in Los Angeles, the state’s largest city. You’ll want to discuss this with your agent if you’re concerned it affects you, but it’s usually limited to only a few weeks each year, typically in the height of the summer shipping season.
Most Popular California Car Shipping Locations
By far the most popular California car shipping location is Los Angeles. With a population of about four million in the city proper, and a metro area of over twenty million, it really is the “best of the west” when it comes to shipping a car. There are few cities in the U.S. that see as much auto shipping traffic as Los Angeles does.
Other major cities include San Jose, San Diego, San Francisco, Oakland, and Fremont, to name a few. All of these cities see relatively steady demand from customers and are routinely visited by car shippers.
But really, it doesn’t matter where in California you’re shipping – chances are there’s a carrier that will move it when you need it moved.
