Car Shipping to Greater Houston
The Houston, Texas Metropolitan Statistical Area, also known as Greater Houston and officially known as the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land Metropolitan Statistical Area, is the second-largest metro area in the state of Texas, after the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, and is currently home to a population of over 4.9 million residents. It is the tenth-largest metro area in the United States. Houston is the natural anchor of the metro area, as it is home to over 2.1 million residents and is one of the largest and most influential cities in the American South, especially when it comes to economic and political clout in the region.
Car shipping to Greater Houston is usually easy to find on account of just how large the area is, both in terms of population and total area. As such, it is a major auto shipping area in the region and sees some of the highest amounts of auto transportation traffic in the entire country. While the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex may be larger by total area, Houston is centrally located along Interstate 10, one of the most heavily-traveled east-west interstates in the nation. I-10 runs through some of the largest cities in the southern United States, and runs from California to Florida and through every state in between. Not only that, but Greater Houston in general has a massive network of local access roads, state freeways and interstate highways, which means auto shippers can easily get to and from not just Houston proper, but many of the suburbs and bedroom communities that surround it.
What this does for you is make your prices more competitive, as there is a lot of demand for car shipping to Greater Houston (as well as demand out of the area). This results in more carriers running routes through Houston – they go where the demand is more than not, and with the weather being favorable pretty much year-round, it’s not surprising that your prices are going to be competitive even during the slowest times of the year (the winter shipping season, in short). Greater Houston also sees a lot of people moving into and out of the area, which increases demand for both household moving and auto transportation services, which also helps to keep prices lower.
