If you hope to move your car by driving it yourself, please be aware that it will take up to 2 days without stopping (approximately 2,811 miles). A road trip of this length adds unnecessary wear on your car, but more importantly, it wears on you. If your student has been accepted to the University of Virginia and wants to make this road trip himself, there’s no shame in admitting that the thought of him driving this distance is keeping you up at night. Shipping your car could save time, worry and unforeseen expense. Or, if you are buying a classic car, driving it that far is not even an option. There are a myriad of reasons to have your car or truck shipped from California to Virginia. If you are relocating, and this will be your new home, here’s a few differences between the states to consider:
Weather and Landscape – There are five main climate regions in Virginia. The Tidewater, Piedmont, Northern Virginia, Western Mountain and Southwestern Mountain. The Tidewater climate region consists of average temperatures in January of 35-48 (F), July of 71-85 (F) and an average annual precipitation of 41 inches . The Piedmont climate region consists of average temperatures in January of 27-47 (F), July of 68-88 (F) and an average annual precipitation of 43 inches. The Northern Virginia climate region consists of average temperatures in January of 19-42 (F), July of 61-86 (F) and an average annual precipitation of 38 inches. The Western Virginia climate region consists of average temperatures in January of 27-45 (F), July of 65-87 (F) and an average annual precipitation of 40 inches. The Southwestern Mountain climate region consists of average temperatures in January of 22-44 (F), July of 60-85 (F) and an average annual precipitation of 47 inches.
Employment and Cost of Living – Virginia has a progressive income tax system and the rates range from 2% to 5.75% (the 27th highest in the country). Sales tax rates range from 5.3% to 6%. Virginia fuel prices are below the national average. Unfortunately, Virginia has some of the most expensive groceries.
In 2012, Virginia ranked number one in best states to make a living. Today, it falls to number two; behind Washington. The reason Virginia is such a good state to make a living is because the state has above-average wages with a below-average cost of living. When it comes to auto transport, California to Virginia is a very common request. There is no down time for car shipping, regardless of the economy.
Education – Virginia has four Top-50 colleges in the U.S.A.: Washington & Lee University at number 20, the University of Virginia at number 40, Virginia Tech at number 43 and the University of Richmond comes in at number 49.
While California boasts some of the finest State Universities in the country, Virginia has some of the best colleges, like University of Virginia, Virginia Tech and College of William and Mary. And with outstanding private universities like University of Richmond, Virginia holds its own against any secondary education system anywhere.
