Auto Transport to Morgantown, WV
Morgantown is a city located in Monongalia County, West Virginia, and is currently home to a population of over 29,600 permanent residents. Morgantown is located in far northern West Virginia, bordering Pennsylvania to the north. Morgantown is perhaps best-known as the home of the West Virginia University, which adds thousands of seasonal residents to the town’s population totals. Morgantown is also the home of the Morgantown Personal Rapid Transit system, a public transportation system akin to many light rail services in major cities, albeit with smaller cars and less traffic due to the lower amount of people. Morgantown relies heavily on West Virginia University for economic strength, and the university is a continued economic boon to the area.
The size and location of Morgantown make it much more difficult to ship a vehicle into or out of than other areas of the United States and even other areas of West Virginia. West Virginia on the whole is not a popular area for car shippers because of its lack of major cities, low population, lack of major interstates and really just a lack of popularity among customers and shippers. Auto transportation companies prefer to run along routes that take them through major metropolitan areas, home to hundreds of thousands if not millions of people. Cities such as Boston, Miami, Los Angeles and Chicago are all on the list of most popular areas; if there was a list of least popular areas, Morgantown would probably be near the top of that one. This is unfortunate if you need to ship a vehicle to or from Morgantown, mainly because it’s going to cost you more money and likely take more time to get a vehicle picked up or delivered in Morgantown.
When shipping to or from Morgantown, summer shipping is generally your best bet as prices tend to be lower in the summer than the winter. More loads across the country generally means less competition among carriers, which usually leads to lower prices along some of the more popular routes. Other areas can see prices go up, since demand for shipping goes up but the number of trucks stays the same along that route. Fortunately, Morgantown isn’t part of that, and if you’re shipping because you’re going back to school (or going for the first time), you might be able to get some good deals, particularly student auto transport discounts, from different shipping companies. Winter tends to bring the cold, nasty weather, including snow, which can raise prices and lower availability to or from Morgantown, so keep that in mind.
