Poquoson 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 12,100 total residents and is a small part of the Hampton Roads, Virginia Metropolitan Statistical Area, one of the largest metro areas in the state. Founded in 1631, Poquoson is one of the oldest cities in Virginia to have the same name it had when it was founded. While other areas of Hampton Roads were growing, notably Suffolk, Portsmouth and Norfolk, Poquoson remained relatively small and tight-knit, and saw little growth during the first three hundred years of its history. Today the city sits close the Virginia Historic Triangle and quite close to Yorktown, which was the site of General Cornwallis’ surrender to George Washington at the end of the American Revolution.

Car Transport to Poquoson Tips and Tricks
Despite the city’s relatively small size, you shouldn’t have too many issues finding car transport to Poquoson considering how close it sits to other major cities. Auto transportation companies like to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas because that’s where the vast majority of their customers tend to be. Also, by keeping close to densely populated areas, carriers can provide services to multiple customers in the region in a single day, which in turn helps decrease a customers’ transit time while also lowering a carrier’s overhead costs, notably fuel. This in turn lets them price their shipments at lower rates to keep themselves competitive and keep their trucks full of cars, which is the best way they have of staying afloat in such a competitive industry.
