Warwick is a city in Kent County, Rhode Island, and with a population of over 82,600 residents is the second-largest city in Rhode Island after Providence. Warwick is located just miles south of Providence, which places it squarely within the Providence Metropolitan Statistical Area, home to over a million people. As such, it is considered a major bedroom city of Providence and sits right along Interstate 95, the main north-south interstate along the east coast and the main route into and out of Warwick, Providence and the general New England area. This makes Warwick a popular car transport area within the state of Rhode Island and will generally help keep prices lower into or out of the area.
Warwick was first settled in 1642 before Rhode Island was founded as a colony. It was actually within the boundaries that caused the dispute that led to Rhode Island becoming its own independent colony. Warwick’s history is tied closely to that of Providence’s, as the two are located quite near one another. Warwick was the site of one of the first rebellious acts against the Kingdom of Great Britain, which would eventually lead to the American Revolution. After the Revolution, Warwick became an industrial center, much like Providence, and today while much of its manufacturing has left, its economy is still thriving, albeit still growing.
During the summer months temperatures tend to be warm, with highs reaching into the low-to-mid 80’s during the day while overnight summer lows tend to drop down into the low-to-mid 60’s. The winter months tend to bring cold weather and snow, which can cause delays in auto transport services as snow can be difficult to traverse for car transport drivers. Average winter highs only reach into the upper 30’s and lower 40’s, while overnight lows tend to drop down into the low-to-mid 20’s. Snow, as mentioned, is fairly common, with average monthly accumulation of about 8 inches or so.
