Maine Auto Transport

Europeans were very hard working and they were known for their intelligence and hard work in the 17th century and that is the reason that they were able to settle a piece of land in 1820 that came into shape and was named as “Maine”. Maine, the place where people like to visit for nothing but for the chilly and cool weather it has. The reason behind such cool weather is that it is blanketed in greenery and forests and on one side it is bordered by thousands of miles of a hauntingly beautiful coastline that is spectacular.


What Maine is Famous for?

Besides spectacular views of the coastline and enriched land, Maine is also called the land that is loved by lobsters as well!

Maine State Infrastructure

According to the research by Maine Section of the American Society of Civil Engineers, the overall near failing condition of Maine’s infrastructure got a ‘C-’ that raised many eyebrows because it clearly shows the careless attitude of state’s government. The dilapidated and neglected conditions of the buildings and bridges are calling for action. MSASCE gave a “D” to roads and “D+” to the contaminated site and municipal wastewater. Parks were given “B-” and airports were also added under the same grade.

The state’s government needs to take this into consideration and must reserve billions of dollars for the making of roads and other infrastructure that fall under the “C” and “D” categories. The state needs to look at the first and then go towards the “B” grade.


Maine Interstate Highways

Talking about the intestates of Maine, Maine is divided into primary highways and the unsigned ones. Primary ones are I-95, I-295, I-395 and unsigned one is I-495. On the contrary, it's good news for those who are looking to ship their vehicle in Maine. I-95 runs through other cities as well and car hauler is always on the go on such interstate highway. In winter many snowbirds take I-95 to run into New York which means more number of car carriers will be on I-95 thus altering the shipping rates. For this reason despite the low demand for Maine car shipping I-95 might save you from getting your shipment rejected and with a plus point of availing cheap rates as well. Auto Transport City has its roots spread all over the interstates and ATC is connected with the shippers who are motivated to ship cars through interstates.
