Troy, Alabama is one of the fastest growing mid-sized cities in the state, with a recent growth spurt of more than 4,000 residents since the 2000 census. As a percentage of the 18,033 population in 2010, the growth spurt was one of the largest in recent history. One of the major draws for auto shipping services in Troy is the presence of Troy University, which is large enough to often earn the city the designation of a “college town.” Although Troy University is the largest employer in the area, other employers also contribute to auto shipping service demands, such as the Walmart Distribution Center, Lockheed Martin, and CGI Group.
The humid subtropical climate of Troy contributes to four distinct seasons, but also aggravates weather concerns like hurricanes and tropical storms. In addition to disrupting infrastructure and causing traffic delays, such storms can damage vehicles not protected by enclosed haulers.
Troy’s position just south of Montgomery makes it easily accessible via major highways like I-85 and I-65, while the city is close enough to the Florida panhandle to be a common stop for auto shippers traveling to or from western Florida destinations. Otherwise, Troy is fairly well isolated from other metropolitan areas of Alabama.
