Auto Shipping to Lawton, OK
Lawton is a city in as well as the county seat of Comanche County, Oklahoma, and is currently home to a population of over 96,900, making it the fifth-largest city by population in the state. Lawton was founded in 1901 on lands that were once reserved for the Kiowa, Comanche and Apache Indian tribes. Though much of Lawton is characteristic of the Midwest – in other words, flat, with some gently sloping and rolling hills – the Wichita Mountains sit a bit north of the city, which can have a small effect on the weather of Lawton. It sits near Fort Sill, Oklahoma, which was first erected in the late 1860’s to help combat Native Americans in the area. Lawton, as is known today, was founded in 1901.
Despite being the fifth-largest city in the state of Oklahoma, Lawton doesn’t anchor a very large metropolitan area, not like Oklahoma City does. A city’s metropolitan area is almost as important as the city itself, as it’s where the largest concentration of the area’s population is located. This is an important distinction in the car shipping industry due to the fact that carriers need to stay where the people are in order to keep their trucks full and maximize their profits. Lawton, due to its size (or rather lack thereof when compared to other popular auto transport locations) tends to get overlooked for Oklahoma City, to the north, which may be easier to ship to or from depending on what you’re shipping, when you’re shipping and who you’re shipping with.
Oklahoma is not the most popular auto transport location within the United States, and Lawton is not the most popular auto transport location within the state of Oklahoma. This can lead to longer pickup times and also longer transit times, since auto shippers don’t really want to run a route that takes them through the middle of nowhere, and will generally lead to higher prices as well. That being said, it sits southwest of Oklahoma City along Intestate 44, which may not be the most popular of interstate highways but does connect Lawton to the rest of the world, notably Oklahoma City to the north and Wichita Falls, Texas to south. Access to Lawton is limited to one minor interstate and one minor state highway, though, so keep that in mind if you’re wondering why the price is so high or why it’s taking so long.
One of the nice things about Lawton is the weather, at least from a car shipping perspective. While the city is relatively small in terms of major metro areas, and is not all that easy to get to or from, at the very least it’s warm during most of the year. Summers get hot and humid, with average highs well into the 90’s, and winters can get cold, with average lows usually dropping down into the low 30’s. However, snow is relatively uncommon, though not unheard of, and this is usually a good thing for car shipping services because most auto transporters can handle a dusting here and there – it’s the snowstorms that wreak havoc on the northern states that they want to try to avoid. Lawton does a good job of that, though, so winter shipping shouldn’t be all that difficult to or from Lawton.
