A Brief History of Hartford
- The city of Hartford currently sits as the fourth-largest city in the state of Connecticut, though it does serve as the capital of the state. Founded in 1635, Hartford grew slowly, more slowly than the coastal cities of Bridgeport and Stamford, though manufacturing during the 18th and 19th centuries certainly helped bring new people to the city. Today Hartford is known as the Insurance Capital of the World, as it has many insurance companies headquartered within its limits, and insurance remains one of the top economic sectors of the city. Hartford is one of the oldest cities in the United States today, and while after the Civil War was one of the wealthiest cities in the country, today the loss of much of its manufacturing sector has led to Hartford becoming one of the poorest, unfortunately.

What to Expect When Shipping to or from Hartford
- Stamford sits just north of the Bronx, a popular shipping location within New York City, and it also sits right along Interstate 95, the main north-south interstate servicing the east coast including New York City and Connecticut. Stamford, because of its connections with the financial industry, is a popular car transport location, which certainly helps your price and how quickly your vehicle gets picked up. Stamford is a bit more popular for Connecticut auto shippers because it’s so close to New York City, and the further northeast you go into Connecticut along I-95 it’s likely going to be more expensive.
