Located in southern South Carolina, Mount Pleasant is a suburb in the metropolitan area of Charleston and is situated on the coast of the Atlantic Ocean and Charleston Harbor. Its close proximity to the ocean makes it highly susceptible to precipitation and severe tropical storms, both potential hazards to auto transport companies like Budget Auto Shipping. Hurricanes can strike the area during the summer and fall. Due to its location in the southern United States, snow during the winter is very rare and does not pose a traffic hazard for auto shipping companies. However, heavy spring and summer rainfall can result in severe flooding which can delay traffic due to washouts and road debris.
The Septima Clark Expressway (also referred to as Highway 17) connects Mount Pleasant with the major Charleston area. From the North, Interstate 526 runs directly into the city limits after connecting with route 701. One of the major access issues that auto transport companies face when traveling to Mount Pleasant is the fact that much of the city is surrounded by water. Land access is possible in the North but traffic must cross a bridge if arriving from the South or West – especially from the Charleston city area.
