Auto Shipping Services to Lewiston, Maine
Lewiston is a city located in Androscoggin County, in the U.S. state of Maine. It is currently home to a population of over 36,500 residents, making it the second-largest city by population in the entire state. Lewiston sits close to Auburn, another large city in Maine, and together they form the Lewiston-Auburn Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is home to over 107,000 residents and is still a popular car shipping location in the state. On the whole, Maine is far from the most popular area in the country to ship a vehicle to or from, but within it Lewiston is almost as popular as Augusta.
Through its early history, Lewiston was mainly a farming community, and initial growth was slow. After the start of the Industrial Revolution, factories and mills began to spring up in the city, and by the mid-19th century Lewiston had grown into a major manufacturing and industrial powerhouse in the region. After the end of the 1960’s, though, Lewiston experienced the same economic decline as many northern manufacturing towns, and major companies and businesses – as well as the city’s population – began to slowly disappear, The city’s peak population was over 41,000 in 1970, and today it is still trying to recover from the population loss, though economic diversification since the 1980’s has led to some renewal of the downtown districts.
Located 20-30 miles north of Portland, the largest city in Maine, Lewisville is fairly easy to get to and from as it sits right along Interstate 95, the main north-south interstate not only in Maine but in the entire eastern United States. I-95 is one of the most heavily-traveled interstate highways in the industry today, and many carriers are willing to run routes along the highway in order to service the largest areas of the country including Boston, New York City, Washington, D.C. and many more. Since it runs all the way north from Miami, Florida to the border between Maine and Canada, auto transporters can quickly and easily get from one area to another. While Lewiston is located in a fairly unpopulated area of the country, your prices will likely be a bit higher but not too exorbitant if you stick to the major cities such as Lewiston.
