Marietta is one of the largest suburbs of metropolitan Atlanta and is well know for its large school system – which employs more than 1,200 people – one of the primary reasons for Budget Auto Shipping to ship vehicles to the area when new teaching jobs open in the area. However, despite the high median household income, the Marietta area has an estimated 15.7% unemployment rate. Two other major draws for auto transport services to the area include the Dobbins Air Reserve Base and the Lockheed-Martin manufacturing plant. Various universities and colleges in the Marietta area serve more than 20,000 students that reside in the area.
Marietta experiences a humid subtropical climate with hot, humid summers and mild winters. Winter temperatures normally range around 40 to 50 degrees and there is seldom snow during the season. Hurricanes are of little concern to the area but major concerns for auto shipping companies can include tornadoes and heavy traffic from Atlanta and other major suburbs in the area. This is exacerbated by the fact that many residents of the area commute to other suburbs or the Atlanta area for work. Interstate 75 runs directly to the East of Marietta and continues South into Florida.
