Household Moving Tips to Bridgeport, CT
Bridgeport is a city in Fairfield County and, with a population of over 144,200 total residents, is the largest city by population in the U.S. state of Connecticut. Settled as early as the 1640’s, Bridgeport grew into a center of shipbuilding and trade during the 18th century and turned into a major industrialized city during the 19th century. Up until the 1970’s Bridgeport was a major industrial center in the United States, but following rapid deindustrialization and urban flight to the suburbs, the city’s population saw stark decline along with a rise in crime rates. However, today the city is flourishing and has been attracting new residents, and is rapidly becoming a popular household moving location within Connecticut.
Bridgeport anchors the Bridgeport Metropolitan Statistical Area, which sits inside the Greater New York Area. This makes Bridgeport a popular car transport and household moving location among companies in those industries as it is typically easy to get into and out of the city and its various suburbs. The Bridgeport metro area isn’t the largest in New England, but it is the largest in Connecticut and as such tends to be a more popular moving location, at least among household movers. Customers are finding renewed interest in Bridgeport, however, thanks to the city’s renewed beautification projects, which has been helping cull household moving prices into and out of the area over the past few years.
Bridgeport sits along I-95, which is the main thoroughfare up and down the east coast. This makes Bridgeport more accessible for household moving companies, but during the winter months you’ll likely find delays in household moving, and not to mention higher prices. This is because Bridgeport sees severe winter weather almost every winter season, with snow and ice prevalent from November through February and March. Household moving companies have a harder time moving through areas that see winter weather every year, so if you’re looking to move and are trying to get good prices, the fall and spring tend to be the best times to move. Of course, not everyone can choose when they move, so if you’re stuck moving during the winter months expect to pay higher prices than during the fall.
