Auto Shipping to Lexington, KY
Lexington is a city located in the U.S. state of Kentucky. The second-largest in the state by population, and 61st in the country, Lexington is home to over 308,400 residents in the city proper and it also anchors the larger Lexington Metropolitan Area, home to 489,400 people, which in turn anchors the larger Lexington-Fayette-Frankfort-Richmond Combined Statistical Area, home to close to 800,000. Lexington is a major college town, home to several major universities and colleges including the University of Kentucky, Transylvania University and Bluegrass Community & Technical Institute. Almost 40% of adults that live in the city have at least a bachelor’s degree.
As the anchor of the second-largest metropolitan statistical area in the state of Kentucky, Lexington is a fairly popular auto transport location within the state. Home to close to half a million people, it may not be the largest in the state by population but it still sees plenty of auto transport traffic within Kentucky proper, which helps keep pickup times out of Lexington faster and prices lower, not to mention the fact that carriers will be more willing to run routes into Lexington from other parts of the country. While this may help your prices and carrier availability a bit, Lexington is still located in Kentucky, making it hardly the most popular area in the country, which does impact your prices.
The city sits about 80 miles south of Cincinnati, Ohio, one of the largest cities in the Midwest, and sits right along the route of two major interstates, I-75 going north-south and I-64 going east-west. These two factors really help when it comes to finding auto transport services to or from Lexington, but only so much. Auto shippers prefer to run routes into and out of major cities along major interstates; while I-75 is a major interstate, Lexington is not one of the largest cities in the U.S., and sees less auto transport traffic than many. Not only that, but Lexington sits in Kentucky, which is not a popular shipping location for carriers due to the fact that not a lot of people really want to move in or out of the area anyway.
Climatically, Lexington is not so different from many other cities in the region. Prone to hot and humid summers and cold, sometimes snowy winters. During the summer months is when you’ll find prices to be at their lowest usually; demand during the summer is high and with the weather nice, the roads are clear, which means easy travels for auto transporters to and from most anywhere in the country. During the winter months, snow and ice and low temperatures can make this more difficult for carriers, which usually leads to increased prices and decreased services, depending on where you’re shipping from or to. Lexington sees average high in the upper 30’s and lower 40’s during the winter, with overnight lows often dropping well below freezing. December, January and February tend to see the worst of the winter weather.
