Originally founded as an Army Air Corps rest camp during the Second World War, Lake Havasu City today is home to 52,527 residents. The city reached widespread notoriety when Lake Havasu was featured in the movie Piranha 3-D in 2010, among several other Hollywood honors. But other attractions also draw tourists and retirees to the area, especially the “London Bridge,” a bridge leading to Thompson Bay. Some university students choose to transport a vehicle to the Lake Havasu area during Spring Break. Finally, the city is home to many snowbirds that travel south from colder states in the winter. A packed event schedule and large local snowbird population make Lake Havasu City a popular destination for auto hauling companies like Budget Auto Shipping.
Despite its popularity, Lake Havasu City is relatively separate from other cities in the area geographically. In fact, only Arizona State Route 95 leads to the city, joined by Interstate 40 and Interstate 10 in the southern portion of the county. Robert McCulloch, the same engineer that designed Disneyland, originally designed the unusual road system. Summer temperatures can be extremely high, with averages regularly topping 100 degrees in the summer months. Otherwise, low precipitation and few climate problems make environmental problems for auto shippers traveling through the area rare.
