McKinney 1McKinney is a city in as well as the county seat of Collin County, Texas, and is the second-largest city in the county by population, after Plano. McKinney was first founded in 1849, and incorporation would come just two years later. McKinney grew relatively rapidly by and by the turn of the 20th century had become the main commercial center in Collin County. This has helped spur further growth, and today McKinney is one of the fastest-growing areas in the state of Texas. It was actually ranked as the fastest growing city in the entire nation from 2000-2003, and again in 2006, while in 2007 it was ranked as the second-fastest growing city and in 2008 the third-fastest. Today, the city is home to over 149,000 residents.

Auto Transport Tips to McKinney

McKinney is one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States and certainly within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex; this growth has made it a popular auto transport location for customers, but the city’s growth hasn’t made it much more popular with auto shippers, namely because it’s still not connected to any major interstates. Access to and from McKinney is restricted to state highways, and while this isn’t generally a problem for you and me, it can be for auto shippers. We recommend speaking to a representative to see if there are other areas within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex it may be easier to get into or out of.

Generally, auto transportation is quicker and cheaper when shipping from and to major metropolitan areas, and McKinney sits right in the middle of one of the largest ones in the United States. This generally helps the cause, and makes auto transport prices and pickup windows lower on the whole. However, there are always some areas of a metropolitan area that car transporters like better than others, and working with your carrier to find a good pickup and delivery location for your vehicle is a good way to keep things running smooth in your shipment.
