Perhaps more than any other city in Georgia, Macon is a haven for college students, many of whom rely on auto shipping services to ship a vehicle to their campus. Around 30,000 college students reside in Macon, most of whom attend one of the three traditional colleges in the city — Mercer University, Wesleyan College, and Middle Georgia State College. There is also a substantial military presence in Macon. Robins Air Force Base, for example, is the largest Georgian industrial complex, and is located just south of the city. Macon’s central location in Georgia and connections to major highways like Interstates 16 and 75 make Macon one of the most accessible cities in Georgia for auto shippers like Budget Auto Shipping.
Macon is in the humid subtropical climate zone, resulting in hot summers and cool winters, although there are four distinct seasons. Winter thunderstorms, tornadoes, and flooding are common issues for auto haulers traveling through the area, but no more than the rest of the state. Summer temperatures will usually peak in the mid-90s while winters can have low temperatures in the 30 to 40 degree range. According to the 2010 Census, Macon was home to about 91,351 residents.
