Stamford is a city located in Fairfield County, in the U.S. state of Connecticut. It is currently home to a population of over 128,000 residents, which makes it the third-largest city in the entire state. Stamford is not just the third-largest city in the state of Connecticut; it is also the seventh-largest city by population in all of New England. Economically, Stamford is one of the most affluent cities in Connecticut; it is currently home to four Fortune 500 Companies and a whopping nine Fortune 1000 Companies, and as a result its financial district is one of the largest in the entire United States outside of New York City.
Stamford sits close to several larger cities in Connecticut including Greenwich, Norwalk and Bridgeport. Sitting near the southwestern corner of Connecticut, Stamford also sits close to New York City proper, which is really useful when it comes to transporting a vehicle into or out of the Stamford area. It’s considered a part of the Greater New York area, which is good news for you as car shipping companies prefer to run routes into and out of major metropolitan areas surrounding major cities – and it doesn’t get much more major than New York, which is the largest city proper and anchor of the largest metro area in the entire United States. You may be able to save some money by moving your pickup or delivery location out of Stamford and closer to New York proper, though it’ll likely be best to speak to your auto transport agent about it.
The main interstate that services Stamford is Interstate 95, which is one of the most heavily traveled interstate highways in the entire country. This actually helps keep prices into and out of Stamford lower than they would be if car transport carriers had to rely on state highways or even surface streets to get from area to area. While Stamford proper is not an incredibly popular car transport location, due to the fact that not a lot of people are searching for shipping services to or from the city, it still sits within the New York metro area, as mentioned, which does help the cause significantly. As we said, it may be cheaper and faster to move your pickup or delivery location further south, as the more north carriers have to go the more expensive it usually ends up being, but you’ll want to talk to your car shipping agent about it.
