The city of Detroit is the largest in the state of Michigan, and thanks to its major role in the automotive industry it is a major auto transport location even today. Home to just over 700,000 residents today, it was once a city of over 1 million before the automotive industry in the United States began to decline. A shadow of its former self in terms of size and scope, Detroit is nonetheless still a popular transport location for customers and transporters alike. Much of this has to do with where the city is located as well as its history – it has long been a major point of trade, with goods moving in and out of the city every single day.
Carriers running routes into or out of Detroit will primarily run routes either along I-90 or I-75. As both of these interstates run right through the city, and they are popular shipping routes for many auto shippers, it’s not surprising that Detroit would be a central location for many companies running routes through the area. Typically, when shipping a vehicle into or out of Detroit going to the outskirts of the city is generally recommended, as there are many areas within central and urban Detroit that shippers just can’t get into or out of, usually because they are too large to fit on the narrower surface streets. Likely, your auto transport driver will arrange with you an alternative location, usually a major outlying strip mall or some other type of retail area with a large parking lot, to meet you at. Do your best to accommodate the shipper’s requests, as they are generally done so for convenience for everyone involved. You can also read more about the city of Detroit here.
