With snowbird season now in full swing, it’s time to start focusing on the snowbird-friendly routes. A big route right now is from Hartford, Connecticut down to Florida. There are a lot of nice spots for easy auto transport going from Hartford to Florida. One of the great things about looking at going south from Hartford is both Hartford and some of the bigger cities in Florida sit along I-95.
Okay, Hartford doesn’t sit directly along I-95, but it’s the only major metro area pretty much in the state of Connecticut so carriers that run routes to or from Connecticut are going to go to Hartford. Besides, there are many snowbirds that ship from Hartford and it’s a straight shot down I-91 pretty much. You could stand to save a bit of money if you make or live close to New Haven and wanted to meet the auto transporter there; if a carrier doesn’t have to get off I-95 to pick your car up, chances are he’ll be more open to a lower price. Once your vehicle gets on I-95 when it’s on the truck – whether the truck picked it up in Hartford or you drove it somewhere near I-95 – it’s going to be a straight run down the east coast into Florida. From there, you can drive it pretty much anywhere you would want to in the entire state, which is really awesome. One of the major cities along the way is Jacksonville Florida. Jacksonville is a major transportation hub in northeastern Florida, and while not a lot of people vacation there, plenty of carriers run routes in or out of Jacksonville for no other reason than its location. If you can pick your car up there, it could also help you to save some money on your auto transport need.
