Stow is a city located in Summit County, in the U.S. state of Ohio. It is currently home to a population of over 34,600 residents and is one of the largest cities in the county. Stow is primarily a suburban community on the outskirts of the Akron Metropolitan Statistical Area and is considered a commuter bedroom city of Akron, with many people living in Stow but working in the city. This makes the area a more popular car shipping location among carriers as well as customers. The area was first settled as early as 1804 and was named after Joshua Stow, the original landowner of the area that became the city we know today. Stow, however, would not be incorporated as a city until 1957.

Car Shipping Tips to and from Stow
Stow sits only a few miles northeast of Akron, just north of Cuyahoga Falls, as a matter of fact, another major bedroom city of Akron. This grouping of smaller cities may not be the most favorable area to ship a vehicle to or from, but car transport companies frequent the Akron metro area regardless due to its relatively large size. It also sits close to Cleveland, one of the largest cities in Ohio, which means that car transport companies have easy access to a number of major metropolitan areas – and, therefore, a large amount of potential customers. Because they frequent these areas, prices tend to be a bit lower on average and services tend to be a bit faster to find as well.
Stow does not sit along any major interstates, but it does sit along a state highway that connects two parallel-running interstates in I-80, to the north, and I-76, to the south. This makes Stow incredibly easy to get to and from for car transport companies as they can quickly change what interstate they are running along in order to maximize their routes and make the most money. Car transport carriers want to service big cities along major interstate highways, as the interstates are the main artery across the country. By having a connection between two frequently-traveled interstates running through it, Stow is situated in a great spot and should not see any major price hikes as a result.
