Auto Transport to Lakewood, CO
Lakewood is a city located in Jefferson County, Colorado, and it is the largest city in the county by population and the fifth-largest in the state of Colorado. Home to over 142,000 residents, it is one of the larger cities located in the Denver-Aurora-Broomfield Metropolitan Statistical Area, also known as the Denver metro area. Lakewood was first founded in 1889 when the area was platted by Charles Welch and W.A.H. Loveland (who has another city in Colorado named after him) as a 13-block town along Colfax Avenue a bit west of Denver. Lakewood for years remained a smaller community with fire and police services provided by the county, but during the 1950’s and early 1960’s the town’s post-war growth begged for incorporation. In 1969 Lakewood was incorporated as a home-rule municipality, giving the local government more control over the area, and the government declared it a city. It has continued to grow ever since.
Lakewood sits just east of I-70, which in that particular area runs north-south for a time before turning east again and heading into Denver proper. As Denver is the largest city in the state of Colorado and is surrounded by a rather large metropolitan area, it’s a fairly popular auto transportation location among customers, which helps when it comes to shipping your own vehicle into or out of Lakewood, as Lakewood sits in the Denver metro area. It also helps that Lakewood sits within the Denver Beltway, which is a looping series of state and interstate routes that completely encircles the Denver metro area – a common construction tactic around major cities. This helps auto transporters find easier-to-access areas in Lakewood, and many of them that work routes running to and from the bedroom city know the ins and outs well enough to give you great deals on shipping to or from there.
Though Denver anchors a rather large and major metropolitan area, Colorado isn’t the most popular place for auto transporters to run routes through despite the popularity with customers. Therefore, prices tend to be higher along routes into and out of Denver because there are fewer shippers running said route, and this can also mean longer wait times for you, the customer. Though it’s not like shipping to a rural area in Maine, it does cost more than shipping to Los Angeles or Dallas, so keep that in mind.
