Socorro 1Socorro is a city located just southeast of El Paso, Texas, within El Paso County, and is currently home to a population of over 32,000 residents. Socorro is a border city, located just east across the Rio Bravo from Juarez, Mexico. Socorro is actually the second-largest city within El Paso County, after El Paso proper, and in terms of growth in the Texan panhandle Socorro is one of the fastest-growing cities. The city was first established by the Spanish in 1680, then a part of Mexico and then Texas, once the state became an independent republic. Added to the U.S. along with Texas, Socorro has watched as El Paso has grown rapidly, though the city has since embraced its bedroom community environment and much of its modern economy revolves around El Paso.

Auto Transport Tips to Socorro

Socorro sits just southeast of El Paso, a city home to over 674,000, ranking within the Top 20 Largest Cities in the U.S. El Paso anchors the larger El Paso Metropolitan Statistical Area, which Socorro sits within, and this makes it much easier to find auto transportation services to or from the area. Auto shippers prefer to run routes into and out of major cities and bedroom cities within major metropolitan areas, and Socorro counts as a bedroom city within a major metro area – the El Paso metro area is home to over 1.04 million residents, so it’s fairly large all things considering. This generally makes it cheaper and faster to acquire auto transport services to and from Socorro.

At the same time, you may save some money by shipping to El Paso, especially if you’re shipping from the western United States. This may be less pronounced due to the fact that El Paso and Socorro both sit along Interstate 10, a major east-west interstate highway that runs from Santa Monica, California to Jacksonville, Florida – one of the longest interstate highways and one of the few that runs literally from coast to coast. This gives auto shippers unparalleled access to one of the largest cities in the United States, which generally helps keep prices lower and pickup times faster. El Paso is a popular area, though perhaps not as much so as more eastern cities in Texas such as Dallas, San Antonio, Houston or Austin, but it is still a major Texan city and a popular shipping location as a result.
