Lynnwood is a city located in Snohomish County, in the U.S. state of Washington. Currently home to a population of over 36,800 residents, Lynnwood is the fourth-largest city in Snohomish County and is continuing to grow. First settled in 1889, the area was originally known for its logging and its mills, as well as livestock and agricultural production. Over time, though, those elements began to slowly fade away as Lynnwood modernized, and today the city is mainly suburban though it does have a mix of different elements which give it a good mix of “old vs. new.” After the construction of State Route 99, the city saw even more substantial growth, and today it is in the midst of an economic redevelopment that has spanned decades and is still ongoing.

Auto Shipping to Lynnwood Tips and Tricks
Lynnwood is a part of the Seattle, Washington Metropolitan Statistical Area, the largest metro area in Washington State and the largest north of San Francisco on the west coast. This makes auto shipping to Lynnwood much easier to find and often cheaper and faster as well. Carriers want to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas in order to keep their trucks full of loads. Shipping full loads makes a carrier more money than if they had a lot of deadhead, so sticking close to heavily populated areas is pretty par for the course. The city does sit north of Seattle, though it sits along I-5 and is a quick jaunt north for most carriers; nonetheless, you may be able to save a bit of time and maybe money if you move your pickup or delivery location out of Lynnwood and into Seattle – this, though, depends on the carrier shipping your vehicle and it will be best if you talk to them before settling on pickup and delivery locations.
