Car Shipping to Parkersburg, West Virginia
Parkersburg is a city located in Wood County, in the U.S. state of West Virginia. It is also the county seat, and, with a population of over 30,900 residents, the third-largest city in the state. The city has long been a small, sleepy city, though it does have a fairly stable economy that is actually growing, albeit slowly. It was once the home of the longest railroad bridge in the world, though the record has since been broken. Today, Parkersburg is the home of the Bureau of Fiscal Service, a government agency that was created out of the old Bureau of the Public Debt when it was merged with the Financial Management Service in 2012.
Auto transporters like to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas, and unfortunately Parkersburg isn’t really a big city, nor does it anchor a major metro area. This can cause some problems if you’re trying to find car shipping to Parkersburg, but it won’t be impossible. Since auto shippers don’t like routes through smaller areas unless there’s enough freight in the region, chances are it may take a bit longer than the usual time frame to find a carrier and get them out to pick you up. While it can be frustrating, the only other way to get a carrier there quickly is to make it worth their while – in other words, increasing the price you pay to the carrier to get them to come out there. Otherwise, the wait will be a bit longer, and even more so during the winter months. We recommend speaking to someone about your car shipping to Parkersburg needs.
At the same time, it helps that Parkersburg sits right along I-77, which while not a major north-south interstate does provide carriers access to Charleston, the largest city in West Virginia, and also Akron and Cleveland, Ohio, to the north. This makes it a lot easier and more affordable for carriers to make a quick trip into Parkersburg without having to go too far off their established routes. Sometimes moving your pickup or delivery location to a larger nearby city can save time and money, but unless you want to take an hour or two to drive down to Charleston, which is more popular, or even longer to go up to the Cleveland area, it won’t really be worth your while. Again, we recommend speaking to an agent to learn more and to figure out the best way to approach your shipment to Parkersburg.
