Houston is a city in as well as the county seat of Harris County, Texas. With a population of over 2.19 million residents, Houston is the largest city by population in the state of Texas and the fourth-largest in the United States, after New York City, Los Angeles and Chicago. Houston today anchors a metropolitan area of over 6.3 million residents, spanning almost 1,300 square miles; its size makes it the fifth-largest by population in the entire country. Houston’s economy today is based heavily around retail and other service-based industries, though manufacturing, healthcare and high-tech industries are also major parts of the city’s overall economic makeup.

Founded in 1836 and incorporated in 1837, Houston emerged in the 1860’s as a major distribution and shipping center, and was a major player in the cotton industry until oil was discovered in the early 20th century. Over time, the city’s economic goals have shifted, but that’s okay; while before Houston was a major transportation and distribution center for southern cotton, today Houston is still a major transportation and distribution center, though for many, many more industries. Houston has the second-largest base of Fortune 500 companies in the U.S., behind only New York City, and has one of the largest and most robust city-wide healthcare systems in the country.

Houston is much like many cities in Texas in terms of its climate, and is likely the epitome of what people tend to think of when they think of Texas’ climate. During the summer months the temperatures are routinely hitting the upper 90’s and even triple digits in the depths of the season, while winter brings cooler weather but rarely snow or ice. This is actually helpful when it comes to shipping a vehicle to or from the area; its size, coupled with its population and the population of its surrounding area, makes it a popular destination to begin with; add in the fact that it’s along major interstates as well as the fact that the weather is generally conducive to fast auto transport services to and from the city and you’ve got yourself one of the most popular areas in the country – and one of the cheapest – to ship a car to or from.
