Car Transport Services to Mount Pleasant, South Carolina
Mount Pleasant is a city located in Charleston County, South Carolina, and with a population of over 67,800 residents is the fourth-largest city in the state of South Carolina. Mount Pleasant is a part of the Charleston-North Charleston-Summerville Metropolitan Statistical Area, also known as the Charleston metro area, and it is the third-largest city in the Charleston metropolitan area. First settled in the late 1690’s, Mount Pleasant remained a small farming community outside Charleston really until the outbreak of the American Civil War. In the fall of 1860 the first secession meeting was held in Mount Pleasant, three months before the official resolution of secession was passed in Charleston in December; the latter would result in South Carolina officially seceding from the United States, and ultimately sparking the Civil War. Though the town’s economy suffered from the Civil War and reconstruction, today Mount Pleasant is a bustling suburb of metropolitan Charleston and is an area where many people live and commute to Charleston for work.
Charleston is not the most popular auto transport location in the United States, or even within the Deep South, at least when it comes to auto transportation companies. Customers, on the other hand, appreciate the laid-back Southern charm of metropolitan Charleston, which blends older antebellum architecture with more modern work to create a rustic-yet-contemporary atmosphere. This tends to draw people in, and the population has expanded greatly over the past three decades or so. This has resulted in more auto shippers running routes into and out of Charleston, and by extension Mount Pleasant, which should help shorten pickup times and also lower prices, depending on where you’re shipping into Charleston or Mount Pleasant from.
It helps that Interstate 26 leads directly to the city of Charleston, and it has an auxiliary interstate – I-526 – that loops through Mount Pleasant and connects to Charleston from the south, and I-26 connects with I-95 which in turn connects almost every major city along the eastern seaboard together in one long chain. This gives auto shippers unparalleled access to some of the largest and most popular areas in the eastern U.S., and this by extension includes Charleston and other areas, such as Virginia Beach, in Virginia, that are popular with customers but not directly along I-95. I-95 sits maybe 50 miles from Charleston proper, and another 5-10 miles east along I-526 sits Mount Pleasant. Of course, pricing depends on the company that you’re talking to, but at the end of the day the interstate only helps when it comes to keeping prices into or out of Mount Pleasant lower.
Weather can also play a factor in your shipment, though it helps that the climate of Mount Pleasant is generally genial year-round. During the summer months, where temperatures peak, average highs reach into the low-to-mid 70’s, though temperatures in the low 90’s have been recorded. Winter weather brings colder temperatures, though snow is uncommon thanks to average highs in the low-60’s, and average lows above freezing, hovering in the upper 30’s and low 40’s. Though it can get chilly in Mount Pleasant, the weather shouldn’t be enough to drastically affect your shipping prices in or out, though the weather at the pickup or delivery city on the other end may play a factor, so keep that in mind when trying to find the best price.
