Waxahachie is a city in as well as the county seat of Ellis County, Texas, and is currently home to over 29,000 residents. The city was founded as the county seat of Ellis County when the county formed back in 1850. The origin of the name “Waxahachie” is unclear; some believe it to be translated from a Native American word from either the Alabama or Wichita tribes, both of which inhabited the area around Waxahachie for a time. The name itself is pronounced “Woks-a-hach-ee” with the first syllable pronounced as “woks” as opposed to “wax” as many people (including the author of this article) assume.

Auto Transport Tips to Waxahachie
Though technically a part of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metropolitan Statistical Area, Waxahachie sits rather removed from the metro area proper, along I-35E. This can make it less popular with auto transportation companies, especially those that run routes through the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex but not further south into Waco, which is where I-35E eventually goes through. Some shippers may run the route down into Waxahachie simply because it sits along a major interstate, but not all will.
This can make auto transportation to or from Waxahachie a bit more difficult, not to mention more expensive and it may also take longer to find a carrier willing to go that far south. You may be better off moving your pickup or delivery into Dallas or Fort Worth – or even another part of the metro area – to save some time or money, if those are of concern for you.
