Car Shipping Services to Rock Hill, SC
Rock Hill is a city located within York County, South Carolina, and is the largest city in the county. Home to over 66,000 residents, Rock Hill is the largest city in York County, the fourth-largest within the Charlotte Metropolitan Statistical Area and the fifth-largest in the entire state of South Carolina. The area that today makes up Rock Hill has been inhabited by Americans since at least the 1830’s, but the area would not be organized into a city until Rock Hill was founded in 1852, after the Charlotte and South Carolina Railroad was built through the area. The railroad brought a large influx of new residents and helped establish Rock Hill as an economic force in the Charlotte area. Today, Rock Hill is the fourth-largest city in the Charlotte metro area after Charlotte, Concord and Gastonia. Rock Hill is the only major city in the Charlotte metro area located outside of North Carolina.
Rock Hill may be a part of the Charlotte metro area, but its location in South Carolina, southwest of Charlotte proper, puts it outside Charlotte’s immediate realm of influence. This has let the city of Rock Hill grow independently of Charlotte, though areas around the larger city in North Carolina have seen the influence of Charlotte while Rock Hill has not. However, it still sits close enough to warrant inclusion when it comes to carriers running routes to and from the Charlotte area. Though Rock Hill does not anchor its own major metro area, Charlotte does, and this helps when it comes to moving a car in or out of Rock Hill since carriers are more likely to travel there anyway. Larger metropolitan areas are more popular with car shippers because of the fact that there are generally more customers and therefore more freight.
It really helps that Rock Hill sits right along Interstate 77, which connects Rock Hill to Columbia, to the south, and Charlotte, to the north, and continues northward into Virginia and West Virginia before turning into I-34 just north of Beckley, West Virginia. While I-77 isn’t the most popular route for auto transport carriers, it does connect some popular car shipping locations, and those areas connect to other major interstates such as I-20 and I-40, not to mention smaller primary interstates that lead to even more major interstates further away. I-77 is an important part of the Interstate Highway System and will assuredly be utilized by your shipping company if they’re going into or out of Rock Hill (or both). This in turn will help keep your prices a bit lower and your pickup times a bit faster, with any luck.
Summer temperatures usually reach upwards of 90 degrees during the depths of the season, with overnight lows only dropping into the low-to-mid 60’s on average. Summer shipping to or from Rock Hill is, like most other places, much faster and easier – though probably a bit more expensive – than shipping in the winter months. It can get cold in Rock Hill, but snow is relatively uncommon though temperatures in the winter months can drop down below freezing overnight. Winters are generally dry, and this helps when it comes to auto transportation services because it’s not as difficult for auto transporters to run routes through Rock Hill during most times of the year. This ease of access and near-constant availability helps keep prices lower and pickup times faster as well, which should help your cause immensely.
