Auto Shipping Services to Saint Charles, MO
The city of Saint Charles is located just a bit northwest of Saint Louis, and is currently home to over 65,000 residents. Saint Charles was originally the last “civilized” stop for the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1804, and remained a major stop for pioneers heading west during westward expansion. It served as the capital of Missouri from 1821-1826 while the main capital of Jefferson was being constructed. Saint Charles is a river town; located on the powerful Missouri River, which flows past nearby Saint Louis and enters the Mississippi River just north of the city, Saint Charles was a major player in the steamboat trades during the mid-1850’s, and the river even today is a major source of income for the town, between tourism along the riverfront and trade along the river itself.

Saint Charles sits right along Interstate 70, which is really helpful when it comes to transporting vehicles to or from the city. As it runs right through the heart of downtown and passes into Saint Louis, which itself is an even larger city that I-70 passes through, it shouldn’t be too difficult to find an east-west carrier traveling along I-70 to get your vehicle to where it needs to go. It also helps that a small interstate, I-64, branches off from I-70 west of Saint Charles and runs south and then east into Saint Louis proper, providing auto shippers with multiple ways to get from one to the other and making it more convenient for both carriers and customers to get to a variety of different areas around Saint Charles. This ultimately keeps prices into and out of the entire region a bit lower than average, which definitely helps when it comes to affording to pay for auto transportation services.
Companies that offer auto shipping services to Saint Charles will likely pickup along routes that pass through Saint Louis due to its proximity, though you should be aware that harsh weather is a factor that can impact your auto transport prices during the winter shipping season, particularly during January and February. Cold winters are common in the area, though they are mitigated somewhat by the Missouri river nearby; regardless, you should expect slightly higher prices for auto shipping services both to and from Saint Charles. Also, if you are shipping from the east into Saint Charles, you may find it slightly cheaper to ship to Saint Louis, as you could easily pick your vehicle up in the nearby metro area and drive the twenty or thirty miles back to Saint Charles.
