Roscoe 1Roscoe is a village located in Winnebago County, in the U.S. state of Illinois. Currently home to a population of over 10,780, Roscoe sits about fifteen miles north of Rockford, which anchors the Rockford Metropolitan Statistical Area, which Roscoe sits within. Though people have been living in the area for close to two hundred years, the village did not officially incorporate until 1965. Rapid growth in recent years has put the village at odds with several of its neighbors including Rockton, to the north and west. With a rapidly burgeoning population base and a desire for growth, Roscoe has become one of the fastest-growing communities in Winnebago County.

Auto Transport to Roscoe

Roscoe sits firmly within the Rockford Metropolitan Statistical Area, which really helps when it comes to finding auto transportation services to or from the village. Auto shippers prefer to run routes into and out of major metropolitan areas; while Rockford doesn’t even come close to the size of, say, Miami or Los Angeles, it is still one of the largest in Illinois and as such tends to see its fair share of auto transport traffic. It helps that the metro area is only eighty miles removed from Chicago, one of the largest cities in the U.S.; this allows car carriers to quickly and easily stop in Roscoe, Rockton, Rockford or any other city in the area to pickup or deliver a vehicle before moving onto Chicago.

Roscoe sits right along the route of I-39, which is a less popular interstate than the long nationwide ones but that does provide carriers with options when picking up or delivering vehicles in Roscoe. Rockford will likely be where they really want to go, and it might be that you can save some money meeting your carrier in Rockford as opposed to Roscoe, but it does depend on the route they they take to get to the Rockford area in the first place, and where they plan on heading to once they leave.
