Colonial Heights is an independent city (which means it is not a part of any county) located in the U.S. state of Virginia. It is currently home to a population of over 17,400 residents and sits within the Richmond, Virginia Metropolitan Statistical Area, one of the largest metro areas in Virginia. The city, like many in eastern Virginia, was first established in the early 17th century, though unlike others around it such as Richmond, Colonial Heights saw slow growth and was primarily an agricultural community until the 1960’s. Incorporation came in 1948 but the charter was not established until 1960; afterwards, population growth increased, and the city saw its most rapid growth between 1960 and 1970.

Auto Shipping to Colonial Heights Tips and Tricks
On the whole, you likely won’t have too much trouble finding auto shipping to Colonial Heights if for no other reason than it sits fairly close to Richmond, just north of Petersburg. Carriers want to run routes into and out of major cities and their surrounding metropolitan areas because that’s where their customers tend to be. By sticking close to populated areas, carriers can usually get from one customer to the next in a relatively short amount of time, and if it’s a popular shipping area they can usually make quite a bit of money in a single day. That said, Colonial Heights is a bit further down the road than Richmond, which may mean you could save some money by moving your pickup or delivery location somewhere more easily accessible to your carrier company.
