Auto Shipping to Charlotte, North Carolina
Charlotte is a city in as well as the county seat of Mecklenburg County, in the U.S. state of North Carolina. Home to over 792,800 total residents, Charlotte is the largest city in North Carolina and the second-largest city in the southeastern United States, after Jacksonville. By population it is the sixteenth-largest city in the country and has been one of the fastest-growing cities in the U.S. as well. Charlotte is a major financial center in the southeastern U.S. and in the United States in general, and is home to both Bank of America and Wells Fargo’s U.S. headquarters.
Charlotte anchors the Charlotte Metropolitan Area, the largest metro area in the state. It currently spans seven counties in North Carolina and three in South Carolina, and is currently home to over 2.5 million residents. As far as popular auto transport locations go, Charlotte is pretty high up there, especially with how large its metro area is. Its size usually leads to more trucks wanting to run routes into and out of the city because customer popularity tends to be high as well; with so many people living in one area, it’s not surprising that even a small fraction of them need to ship their vehicles out of the city, so carriers often want to run routes through Charlotte to take advantage of its large size.
The main interstate highway that runs through Charlotte is I-85, though I-77 also runs through the area and the city even has a beltway, I-485, that encircles the greater metro area. This makes Charlotte much easier to access for auto transport carriers, and the interstates that run through the city also connect to other major cities in the region. On the whole, shipping a vehicle to or from Charlotte will likely be faster and easier than more rural areas in the state, though even some of the larger cities in North Carolina will be more expensive than Charlotte due to the city’s ease of access and high population.
As a southern state, Charlotte doesn’t see a lot of snow, and during the spring and summer the weather is generally friendly to auto transport companies on the road. Charlotte does see some freezing temperatures, particularly during the winter months, but on the whole the weather is pretty nice throughout the year. Hurricanes are rarely a problem, though they aren’t exactly unheard of, and during the fall months hurricanes can affect your shipment even if their path doesn’t go near Charlotte.
