Weatherford 1Weatherford is a city in as well as the county seat of Parker County, Texas, and is currently home to a population of over 25,000 residents. Weatherford is a part of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Statistical Area, also known as the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and sits on the western end of the metro area, about 20 miles or so west of Fort Worth. After Parker County was formed in 1855, new settlers began to settle in the region that would become Weathford. Native American attacks were common in the area until the county was formed, which brought more protection in the form of police and militia. Weatherford grew slowly, though population growth rose after 1880 and the completion of the first railroad through the area. Weatherford today is known as the Peach Capital of Texas due to its many peach groves.

Auto Transport Tips to Weatherford

Weatherford sits in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Statistical Area, a major metro area and one of the largest in the state of Texas. The entire area is a popular auto transportation destination year-round, and this can make shipping into or out of Weatherford easier by making pickup and delivery a bit quicker and also prices a bit lower. Carriers prefer to run routes into and out of major metropolitan areas, and since the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, as it is known, is one of the largest in the southern U.S., it’s a popular shipping location for both customers and carriers.

It really helps that Interstate 20 passes through the southern parts of Weatherford, giving auto shippers running east into Fort Worth easier access to the area. Unlike other small cities in the Dallas metro area, Weatherford has easy interstate access, which increases its popularity with auto shippers. If you’re shipping to Weatherford from the western U.S., chances are you can find good deals almost the entire year-round. If you’re shipping from the east, though, it may be easier to ship to a part of the metro area closer to Dallas, or even further east; a bit of a drive for you, perhaps, but easier on your wallet more often than not.
