New York state has some thirty-one Interstate Highways, nine primary routes, and twenty-two auxiliary routes, including I 95, which travels from New York to points south. These are some of the most heavily traveled roads in the country.

Although people are moving out of New York in record numbers, 46,000 in 2018, there are always new residents arriving taking up the challenge to “make it there.” New York City has one of the most sophisticated public transportation systems in the country, yet many residents still enjoy a vehicle for weekend getaways to beautiful upstate New York.


With its massive population and access to major highways, auto transport carriers can quickly get to and from New York. This combination of population density and ease of access puts the city on one of the more frequently used auto transport routes, making shipping more economical and resulting in shorter wait times for pick-up and delivery. I-95 runs directly through New York on its way from Miami to Maine and is one of the busiest routes for auto transport in the country. We have access to numerous carriers who offer either open carriers or enclosed transport for your luxury or exotic vehicle and offer door to door, terminal to terminal, or door to terminal shipments. When shipping during the winter months, you may want to consider an enclosed carrier to protect your vehicle from the harsh Northeast elements. Enclosed carriers are more expensive, but the protection is worth it.

Transport costs for the more rural parts of the state will be more expensive and take longer for delivery if you’re off a major interstate. However, the other large cities Buffalo, Rochester, and Albany, all have excellent access to major interstates such as I-90, which borders each city on its way from Maine to Oregon.
