Suffolk is an independent city (meaning 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 84,500 total residents, making it a fairly major part of the Hampton Roads Metropolitan Statistical Area, one of the largest metro areas in the state. Suffolk was founded in 1742 as a port town, and was originally a part of Nansemond County, and was actually the county seat after 1750. Originally a tobacco and mixed-crop agricultural community, Suffolk grew into a transportation hub of southeastern Virginia; it was incorporated as a city in 1808, and remained a part of Nansemond County until 1972 when it became an independent city and merged with the county to become one of the largest cities by total area in the entire United States.

Auto Transport to Suffolk Tips and Tricks
You shouldn’t have much trouble finding auto transport to Suffolk on account of its size and location within a fairly large metropolitan area. Auto shippers want to stick close to major cities and metro areas as a guideline, as it makes it much easier to consolidate loads, service more customers and thus make more money in a shorter space of time. Suffolk is fairly large, but much of the city is concentrated in the northeastern areas near Chesapeake and Norfolk. This is actually quite useful, as it means carriers usually won’t have to travel so far from the core populated areas of the Hampton Roads region, which should cut down on transit time and price for you.
