Forest Hill is a city located in Tarrant County, in the U.S. State of Texas. It is located in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Statistical Area, also known as the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and sits just southeast of Fort Worth. Forest Hill is currently home to a population of over 12,300 residents, making it one of the smaller cities in the metropolitan area. The area was first settled in the early 1860’s, and was originally known as Brambleton Station and then Forest Hill Village by the turn of the 20th century. It has long been established as a suburb of Fort Worth, and after citizens of Forest Hill incorporated in 1946 the city experienced a small population boom. Today, Forest Hill is still relatively small, but it has exhibited growth over the past few decades and projections show Forest Hill continuing the trend into the near future.

Auto Transport Tips to and from Forest Hill
Forest Hill is located only a few miles southeast of Fort Worth, which is one of the most popular shipping locations in the state of Texas. This makes it easier to find carriers going into and out of the area, since there are a lot of customers usually shipping vehicles in and out of the Metroplex on a daily basis. With so much traffic, pickup times are generally reduced, as are prices, though these depend on where you’re shipping from if you’re going into Forest Hill, or where you’re going to be shipping to, if you are going out of the city.
Forest Hill is located along two major interstates – I-20, going east-west, and the western spur of I-35, which runs north-south. It is also adjacent to I-820, an auxiliary interstate of I-20. This amount of access to major interstates makes Forest Hill a lot easier for carriers to get into and out of, which usually means you won’t have to move your pickup or delivery location anywhere, as it likely wouldn’t really do much for your price or availability of a carrier.
