Henderson is a city located in Clark County, Nevada, and is the second-largest city in Nevada after Las Vegas. Henderson sits in the heart of the Las Vegas metropolitan area and is currently home to a population of over 265,000 residents. Founded during the early 1940’s, Henderson’s popularity rose steadily after construction and opening of the Henderson Basic Magnesium Plant. The Henderson magnesium plant supplied a quarter of all the magnesium the United States used during the Second World War, and the metal was used in everything from bullet casings, airplanes parts and frames, as well as engine parts for planes and trains and boats and jeeps. After the end of the war, the magnesium plant closed down, but the Las Vegas metropolitan area had already been transformed into a bustling metro area with an active and vibrant nightlife. Today, Henderson is considered one of the safest cities not just in Nevada, but in the entire United States. Credit is given to the city’s (as well as its residents’) affluence and the myriad number of things to do; Henderson has made it even better with an abundance of cultural and entertainment choices such as numerous movie theaters, arcades, restaurants, casinos, resorts and more.
The city of Henderson sits southeast of Las Vegas proper and maybe ten miles or so from the Las Vegas Strip, the most popular tourist destination perhaps in the United States. Henderson is a support city; while many people who visit the area visit Las Vegas, many people who live there live in Henderson and the surrounding neighborhoods. When shipping a vehicle to or from Henderson you’ll want to make sure you talk to your representative if you’re shipping on a budget or you’re pressed for time, because they will likely be able to find a carrier that’ll be able to fit your needs. The Las Vegas metropolitan area is one of the most popular areas to ship a vehicle to or from, so you probably won’t have too many problems finding a carrier willing to travel all the way to Henderson in order to pick up or deliver a vehicle. Of course, this is also why getting the specifics and details is important, because there may be another area in the Las Vegas metro area that might be cheaper to ship to or from, and that may be where you want to meet your shipper.
The nice thing is that weather won’t affect your shipment much, if at all. Henderson, like Las Vegas and the rest of Nevada, is located in a massive desert, which means that temperatures in the summer are scorching and temperatures in the winter are only mildly blistering. Seriously though, Henderson gets its fair share of sunshine, just like Las Vegas, and it’s not uncommon to see temperatures in the triple digits as far as late summer and early fall. This, however, tends to mean no snow, no ice, no difficult conditions for auto transportation companies, which tends to help increase your pickup windows while also decreasing your price, and while Las Vegas may not be as popular as Chicago or Miami to ship a vehicle to or from, plenty of people still do it, so you shouldn’t have any problems finding someone to ship yours.
