If you’re looking for auto transport to Arkansas, whether you’re moving there or just visiting relatives for a couple of months, there are plenty of neat things to know about before you head down there.
The Mississippi River makes up most of the eastern boarder, except where the St. Francis River makes up the rest. To the south is Louisiana, and to the north is Missouri, while Tennessee and Mississippi are bumping elbows on the east side and Texas and Oklahoma are fighting for land on the west side (not really fighting, but rather just sharing borders).
In Arkansas, there are many thick forests and flowing plains, which is odd considering the state itself. It’s actually a part of the Ozark Plateau, which (believe it or not) includes the Boston Mountains. In the southern part of the state are the Quachita Mountains, and these are further divided by the Arkansas River, while the Lowlands are in the eastern and southern parts of Arkansas. All the more reason to find an auto shipper to Arkansas.
The lowlands of Arkansas are colloquially known as the Delta and the Grand Prairie. Along the Mississippi River the land is known as the delta, and it gets this name from the annual flooding of the Mighty Mississippi. The grand prairie is a little bit away from the river itself, and an interesting part of the delta is the Crowley Ridge, which cuts the delta in half. Interested in automobile shipping yet?
Arkansas is a pretty mellow state, for the most part. It’s typical of most southern states in that it has hot summers and mild, dry winters, with a mix of both in the spring and fall. This is due to its subtropical climate (in technical terms), mainly influenced by the Gulf of Mexico. It also receives about 60 days of thunderstorms each year, mainly due to the fact that it lies smack in between the Gulf States and the Prairie States. They are rarely dangerous, however, so don’t let that get in your way of finding an auto shipper or looking for automobile shipping.
