A Brief History of Phoenix
- Phoenix is the largest city in as well as the capital of the state of Arizona, and is the sixth-largest city in the United States with 1.5 million residents. Founded in 1861 and incorporated as a city in 1881, the city of Phoenix grew slowly initially, as it was primarily an agricultural town. However, after beating out Tucson to become the state capital in 1881, Phoenix began to see more substantial growth, which was furthered by several major reclamation projects along the Salt River Valley, including several dams that created new lakes in the mountains surrounding various points of the river. During World War II Phoenix transformed into a manufacturing and distribution center, and that was when the city’s (and Arizona’s) strong ties to the military truly started. During the 1970’s and 80’s Phoenix managed to avoid much of the urban decay that was affecting major northern industrial cities such as Detroit and Cleveland, and today the city is in the midst of a renewed urban development plan which has seen new stores and retail outlets come to the downtown area as well as housing areas that were once run-down now becoming stable and serene once again.

What to Expect when Shipping to or from Phoenix
- As the largest city in the state of Arizona, Phoenix naturally is one of the most popular areas in the state for car transporters to run routes in and out of. This is aided by the fact that Phoenix sits right along Interstate 10, a crucial part of the Interstate Highway System that allows access to many of the major cities in the southern United States. Running from Los Angeles (or near enough) clear east to Jacksonville, I-10 is a prominent thoroughfare that makes auto transportation prices lower as shippers have access to more customers as they’re going through multiple major metro areas. I-10 isn’t as popular as you may think, though, at least not in terms of straight east-west transport, because the major metro areas it services are fairly spread out, with large gaps in between. During the winter months is when you’ll see lower prices, as Phoenix gets more popular in the fall and winter with all the snowbirds shipping their vehicles. Plus, transporters are more likely to run southern routes in the winter, the better to avoid heavy snowfall and winter driving conditions. Ultimately you should find Phoenix one of the more affordable areas to transport a vehicle to or from.
