Bellaire is a city located in Harris County, Texas. Part of the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land Metropolitan Statistical Area – also known as Greater Houston – the city of Bellaire is home to over 16,800 residents and sits just southwest of Houston proper, making it one of the closer bedroom cities of the largest city in the state. Bellaire is a residential city; though there are some offices that have recently been constructed, much of the city is given over to residential homes as opposed to commercial or industrial real estate; this has earned Bellaire the nickname “City of Homes.” Bellaire is located along the I-610 Beltway, also known as the 610 Loop, which is an auxiliary highway that encircles Houston proper and connects outlying areas to the larger city.

Auto Transport Tips to and from Bellaire
Bellaire is located in the heart of Greater Houston, which generally means it’s going to be one of the easier cities to get into and out of. Auto shippers prefer to run routes along major interstate highways that run through major metropolitan areas – and as the fifth-largest in the United States, Greater Houston more than qualifies as a major metropolitan area. This generally results in faster pickup and delivery times and also lower prices for shipments into and out of Bellaire, and this is generally year-round – the Houston region is not known for its snowfall, so even winter shipping should yield decent prices.
Generally, when shipping to a bedroom city or another part of a metropolitan area, there are places that auto shippers prefer to go in and out of and those that they don’t. Bellaire is located just south of Houston, right in the middle of a sprawl of human civilization, so getting there shouldn’t be a problem. It helps that Bellaire sits right along I-610, an auxiliary interstate of Interstate 10 that completely encircles the core area of Houston. This makes it easier for car shippers to navigate in and out of Bellaire, resulting (usually) in lower prices as well.
