Auto Shipping to Warwick, Rhode Island
Warwick is a city in Kent County, Rhode Island and is the largest city in the county and second-largest in the state, after Providence. Warwick is home to over 82,000 residents currently, and was first founded in 1642, one of the first cities in New England. Though little more than a small farming community for years, Warwick was privy to great events throughout history including one particular incident just before the outbreak of the American Revolution when patriots boarded a British ship docked in the harbor, stole its cannon and burned it. The ship was in port to uphold the recently-passed Stamp Act, a major precursor and focal point in the reasons behind the start of the American Revolution. After over 360 years of being a town, Warwick has changed drastically, and today is mainly a suburban town with healthcare and retail services being its prime economic drivers.
Let’s get this out of the way now: Rhode Island is far from the most popular auto transport location in the United States; with so many major cities surrounding it, auto transporters have no desire – nor the need – to go to somewhere such as Warwick. Because of this, it’s going to likely be more expensive to ship in and out of Warwick, Rhode Island than it would be to or from other major metropolitan areas. Warwick, however, does have one thing going for it: the fact that it sits not too far off of Interstate 95, the main interstate that auto shippers on the east coast use. I-95 runs through some of the largest metro areas on the east coast, including New York City, Boston, Philadelphia, Jacksonville and Miami, to name a few. Warwick sits south of Providence, which is where most carriers that do run routes into Rhode Island go, so at least you can meet them along the interstate, which may help cut down your pickup window a bit.
If you can swing it, try to get to a city like New York City, or at least the metropolitan area. Auto transporters don’t like going into New York City proper, and they can’t travel through areas like Manhattan due to both city ordinance and their large size. However, the outskirts of the metropolitan area tend to have plenty of places that shippers can easily get to and from and maneuver around in, so that really helps the cause there. As mentioned, Providence may also be a good place to move your pickup or delivery to as well, though this is more dependent on the current conditions of the industry as well as the season – it’s a lot harder running routes in and out of Rhode Island during the winter months.
