Connecticut is a state located in the New England region of the U.S. It is the southernmost state in New England and borders Massachusetts, New York, and Rhode Island. Auto transport to Connecticut should not be difficult to find, considering its location and size.
The state currently has a population of over 3.6 million residents and ranks 29th among the 50 states in terms of total population. It also ranks 48th in terms of total area, making it one of the smallest states by that metric, but it is also the fourth-most densely populated state in the U.S.
When searching for auto transport to anywhere, population density is an important metric. While usually applied to metro areas as opposed to states, states with high densities tend to be more popular locations to ship to.
A bit about auto transport to Connecticut
Though the capital of the state is Hartford, its largest city is Bridgeport, which is currently home to over 144,000 residents. It is also the anchor of the Greater Bridgeport Metropolitan Statistical Area, home to over 305,000 total residents. This is, surprisingly, about a tenth of the total population of the entire state.
As such, the Bridgeport metro area tends to be the state’s most active car shipping hub. It also helps that much of Connecticut, particularly in the southern areas of the state, are a part of the New York City Metropolitan Area. New York attracts a metric ton of auto shippers throughout the year simply due to its vast size. However, most shippers tend to be going out of the region, particularly during the winter.
This is because Connecticut has warm-to-hot summers and cold, snowy winters. The winters are the biggest problem, though, as they make it hard to get into the state due to snow and ice. While seasonal temperatures can vary wildly, the winters are pretty consistently filled with snow.
Auto shippers don’t like snow – it’s hard to travel along and can cause seriously hazardous conditions. Many carriers haul upwards of a hundred thousand dollars worth of cargo at a time. Watching all that go away because of black ice is not something they want to have happen. As such, most Connecticut shipments are going out during the winter months and in during the rest of the year.
