The sixth largest city in Michigan, according to the 2010 census, Ann Arbor is home to the University of Michigan. Ann Arbor is also known for its wide offering of high technology jobs that relocated to the city in the hopes of attracting young talent from the university. The University of Michigan can be a huge draw for auto shipping services, partially because of its large employment offering — 30,000 workers, of whom 12,000 work in the university’s medical center alone. Of course, Budget Auto Shipping regularly assists college students with relocations if they wish to bring their vehicles to the school.
Ann Arbor, Michigan is situated in the southeastern portion of the state, just outside Detroit and thus considered part of the Detroit – Ann Arbor – Flint CSA. Its position in the country also means milder winters than in areas further north. However, the Great Lakes do cause a significant amount of snow from time to time, referred to as “lake effect snow.” While other cities closer to the shores of Lake Michigan often suffer the most lake effect snow, auto haulers traveling through Ann Arbor in January or February may face traffic delays. Ann Arbor is easily accessible from the north and south through Interstate 94.
