Auto Transport to Glendale, AZ
Glendale is the fifth-largest city in the state of Arizona, with a population of over 226,000 residents. Originally nothing more than desert wasteland (like much of Arizona during the early 19th century), Glendale was brought to life by William John Murphy, an ex-New Yorker living in Flagstaff, who realized that money could be made parceling and selling the land that would become Glendale. 1887 saw the rise of Glendale to Arizona prominence, and it was during that time that Murphy constructed Grand Avenue, an 18-mile diagonal road to Phoenix that is still in use today. Glendale is known as Arizona’s Antique Capital today and is the home of Midwestern University. You can also learn more about Glendale via the city’s official website.
Glendale is a prominent suburb of Phoenix, the largest city by population in Arizona, and sits just slightly north of Interstate 10 and west of Interstate 17, both of which intersect in the heart of Phoenix proper. This makes Glendale rather easy to get to and from, and many auto transport companies run routes through Phoenix due to the city’s popularity, particularly during the fall and winter months, as it is a prime snowbird location, as is Glendale and many of the surrounding suburbs of Phoenix. I-10 is perhaps the easiest and fastest route to Glendale, as I-17 really only services Arizona – it connects Phoenix to Flagstaff, which sits further north, and turns into I-10 just south of Phoenix.
These two interstates do limit the routes that auto shippers can generally use to get into and out of the area, but the city’s population, size, and popularity as a snowbird area make it one of the cheapest areas in the southwest to ship a vehicle to and from. Summer shipping may be a bit more expensive, and it’s generally cheaper to ship out of Glendale than into it during the winter months, but on the whole the weather actually helps when it comes to moving vehicles in and out of the area, because it never really gets to snowy or icy – in fact, Glendale has some of the most days of sunshine out of all the U.S. cities, so take that for what you will.
