Circleville is a city in as well as the county seat of Pickaway County, in the U.S. state of Ohio. It is currently home to a population of over 13,400 residents. Circleville was first laid out as early as 1810 and was originally named Circleville because, well, the original layout of the town featured a circular layout instead of the more common grid layout. Intending to be unique and original, by the 1830’s the circular layout was becoming cumbersome and unwieldy, and residents petitioned the government to abandon the layout and instead switch to a more conventional grid design, which they did, though it took them almost twenty years to do so. Today, Circleville is a minor part of the Columbus metropolitan area.

Auto Transport Tips to and from Circleville
As mentioned, Circleville is a part of the Columbus, Ohio Metropolitan Statistical Area, which is home to over 2.3 million residents and anchored by the capital of and largest city in the state. This is good news for customers that are looking to ship a vehicle to or from Circleville, as car transport carriers prefer to run routes into and out of major metropolitan areas that are anchored by major cities. This is because it helps them keep their overhead costs lower and also helps keep their trucks full more often, as large cities and densely populated metro areas are where the vast majority of their customer base resides.
The problem is, at least when shipping into or out of Centerville, the fact that it sits about 30 miles or so away form Columbus proper, and not along any major interstates to boot. Not only do car transport carriers want to run routes through major cities and metro areas, but they want to stick to major interstate highways as well, because that’s the easiest and fastest way to get into and out of the most popular car shipping areas in the nation. Circleville does not sit along any major interstates, and since it’s a ways south from Columbus anyway, it may not be a bad idea to move your pickup or delivery location out of Circleville and closer to Columbus, in order to try to get cheaper prices and faster pickup times.
