Thousand Oaks is a city located in eastern Ventura County, California, near the Los Angeles County/Ventura County border. One of the more affluent cities in the region, Thousand Oaks is home to over 128,000 and forms the population core of the Conejo Valley.
The city draws its name from the many natural oak trees that populated the area when first settled in the 1870’s. Originally nothing more than a stop on a stagecoach route, Thousand Oaks slowly grew into a technological giant with companies such as Bank of America, Baxter International, General Dynamics, Verizon, Volkswagen, General Motors and BMW all operating offices or manufacturing facilities in the area.

Tips for Auto Shipping to Thousand Oaks
Located along California Highway 101, also known as the Ventura Freeway, Thousand Oaks is frequently passed by by auto transportation companies, as the 101 is a popular and heavily-traveled state route. This can help when it comes to transportation of a vehicle to or from Thousand Oaks, but its out-of-the-way location can lead to some companies not bothering with running routes there unless they charge more.
Thousand Oaks sits between Ventura and Woodland Hills, two affluent cities within the Greater Los Angeles Area. When shipping to or from the area you may get better deals by shipping to Ventura or Woodland Hills, depending on where you’re shipping from, though the best course of action would be to talk to your auto transport representative, as they will likely be able to tell you where and how you can save some money.
With nice weather pretty much year-round, you probably won’t see too much of a price shift between summer and winter shipping. These two seasons are the two extremes of the car shipping industry, with summer being the busiest season in the industry and winter being the slowest. In many areas of the country, snow and ice can hamper winter shipping and cause price hikes; Thousand Oaks, however, has a relatively warm climate year-round, with virtually no snow ever, so that will only help your prices stay lower if you are moving during the depths of the winter shipping season.
