Kennewick is a city in Benton County, in the U.S. state of Washington. It is currently home to a population of over 77,400 total residents and is the largest city in the Tri-Cities Metropolitan Area, also known as the Kennewick-Pasco-Richland Metropolitan Statistical Area, or the Kennewick Metro Area, but most commonly referred to as the Tri-Cities region. Kennewick was first settled in the late 19th century and was incorporated in 1904. Originally a railroad and steamboat stop along the Columbia River, Kennewick grew during World War II thanks to the nearby Hanford Nuclear Site; many people moved to the Kennewick area to work at the Hanford site, and though the site is today closed down it has had an indelible effect on the city and has directly contributed to its continued growth.

Auto Shipping to Kennewick Tips and Tricks
Routes that run through Kennewick tend to see higher-than-average prices because it sits east of the Cascade Mountains in an area that is rather isolated. Though it is connected to several interstates including I-82, which runs up to Yakima, and I-84 which runs through northern Oregon, there are usually not a whole lot of people shipping cars into or out of Kennewick or the Tri-Cities area. At the same time, there are certainly more expensive areas to ship a vehicle to or from in Eastern Washington, so Kennewick does see lower shipping prices than others. Auto shippers like to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas, and Washington has some big cities – too bad most of them sit far away from Kennewick. But, shipping services are available, though usually at a higher price. Talk to your shipping representative to learn more and see if there are some ways you can cut down your transit time or your costs when it comes to auto shipping to Kennewick.
