Auto Transport to Fayetteville, Arkansas
Fayetteville is a city in as well as the county seat of Washington County, in the U.S. state of Arkansas. Home to a population of over 3,500 residents, Fayetteville is the third-largest city in the state of Arkansas and was first settled as Washington in the late 1820’s. The name changed to “Fayetteville” in 1829, and was incorporated as a town in 1836 and rechartered as a city in 1867. Fayetteville is perhaps best known for being the home of the University of Arkansas, the largest university in the state and a major part of the city’s economy. In 2010, Forbes ranked Fayetteville as one of the best cities to start a business in. Fayetteville also sits close to Bentonville, which is the home of the headquarters of Walmart.
Fayetteville is an anchor of the Northwest Arkansas Metropolitan Area, officially known as the Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers Metropolitan Statistical Area. It is currently home to a population of roughly 492,000 residents spread out over four counties in two states (with one being in Missouri, to the north). As car transport companies prefer to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas, this is good news for you if you’re trying to ship a car into or out of Fayetteville. Car transporters like to stick to big cities and metro areas because that’s where the customers tend to be, and thus where they can typically make the most money.
Fayetteville sits right along Interstate 49, which may not be the most popular or well-known interstate but is still a vital connection between Fayetteville, the Northwest Arkansas area and the rest of the United States. I-49 connects with I-40, a major east-west logistics corridor, in Fort Smith, which sits south of Fayetteville and is the second-largest city in Arkansas. Because of this, not only can carriers easily get from one metro area to another, but they can also do so quickly. This minimizes their own overhead costs, as it uses less fuel, which in turn allows them to stay competitive in terms of their prices and keep their trucks full of loads and on the road. If you’re having trouble finding a carrier to go to Fayetteville, Fort Smith may be a better option, but you’ll want to discuss that with your shipping agent.
During the summer months is typically when the area is going to see its highest amount of customers going into and out of it. Summer typically sees increases of car shipping services across the country, as more people have the time and usually the resources to ship a vehicle during the summer. Fayetteville experiences all four summers relatively equally, with hot summers and colder winters, though during the winter months snow is not necessarily common but also not unheard of. The city – and, really, the entire region – sits in kind of a transitional zone, so keep an eye on the weather reports if you’re looking to ship into or out of Fayetteville during the fall or winter.
