Laramie is a city in as well as the county seat of Albany County, in the U.S. state of Wyoming. Home to a population of over 30,800 residents, Laramie is the third-largest city in Wyoming by population. Laramie today is a major center of education and retail in the state of Wyoming, one of the smallest states by population in the U.S., which makes Laramie more of a metropolitan area than other, smaller cities in the state, thanks mainly to the University of Wyoming’s presence in Laramie.
Laramie was founded in the mid-1800’s, and grew around a now-abandoned army fort, Fort Sanders. Laramie as a town did not see much growth until the Union Pacific Railroad built a line through the area, which helped bring new residents to the town and spurred initial economic and agricultural growth. Laramie, like many cities in Wyoming, has a large agricultural interest, though the city’s economy has diversified greatly since its founding.
Laramie experiences relatively mild summers and cold, brutal winters that can impact auto transport services to or from the city. Laramie is already low on the most popular cities list in the car shipping industry, and summer is usually the best time to ship into and out of the city due to higher volume in terms of carriers on the road. During the winter months, average highs rarely reach out of the low-30’s, and overnight lows often bring sub-freezing temperatures in the low teens as well as snow, which usually dumps anywhere from 6-10 inches of snow on Laramie per month from November to March. This can cause even longer delays in terms of pickup and transit time, and will likely increase your price as well due to its low popularity among customers.
