Addison is a city located in Dallas County, Texas, and is a northern suburb of Dallas proper. Though technically the city is home to just over 13,000 residents, Addison is unique for a suburb city in that much of it is commercial, meaning it is a major shopping area in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Statistical Area. This causes the daytime population in Addison to skyrocket, despite few people actually living in the city itself. The area has been settled since as early as 1846, though incorporation as a city would not come until 1953. Addison’s growth has largely been contributed to the suburban housing boom that started in the 1960’s, though its growth did not really start until the early 1980’s, and today it is one of the few cities in its area that allows restaurants to serve alcoholic beverages by the drink, thus making it a popular area for nearby residents to go out to restaurants and enjoy life.

Auto Transport Tips to and from Addison
Addison, all things considered, is a minor suburb town of Dallas, and while it can see upwards of a hundred thousand people in its city limits on any given day (which is actually quite a few for a town of under 5 square miles) the city itself isn’t all that large; this makes it less popular with carriers, especially considering that the only real connection to Dallas proper that it has is a toll road, which auto transportation companies really don’t like to travel along as it costs money (tolls) in order to do so.
This generally results in higher prices for shipments into and out of Addison proper. Auto transport companies will ship a vehicle from anywhere, to anywhere in the country, but for many areas the price has to be right – and that includes to and from Addison. Usually, you can save some money by shipping a vehicle to or from Dallas proper, or even another bedroom city such as Arlington or Mesquite, depending on where you’re shipping into Addison from. Likewise, if you’re shipping out of Addison, meeting your carrier somewhere in the metro area for pickup can also save you some money.
At the end of the day, though, you’ll want to talk to an auto transport representative about the current state of affairs in the auto shipping world and to figure out how long it’ll take to get a vehicle into or out of Addison.
