Oregon Auto Transport Information

Trying to make a decision whether or not to ship your car and looking for Oregon auto transport quotes? This information about possible routes, how weather can affect the cost, and car dealerships or rental agencies we work with in Oregon will help you make an informed decision.

When you’re looking for the right car transport service to ship a car to or from the state of Oregon, there are a lot of details to consider.

Auto transport in and out of Oregon is part of daily life at J&S Transportation. Of the 235,000 vehicles we’ve shipped on our own trucks, many of those routes go through beautiful Oregon. You’ve found a reliable auto hauler to ship your vehicle.

Oregon Auto Transport Routes

Our auto shipment trucks utilize corridors provided by the major Interstates and Highways to deliver and pickup vehicles all over Oregon. If you already live in Oregon, some of these may be familiar to you. If you’re moving to Oregon from another state, consider this your introduction to any new major roads you may need to learn.

Cities in Oregon near Interstate 5 (runs North to South).


That’s a brief listing of the major cities, but any town along I-5 will be easy to transport a vehicle in or out of. For those who live on the coast of Oregon near Highway 101, there are 4 major roads running East to West that connect with I-5.

Highway 199
Highway 20
Highway 26
Highway 30

Cities in Oregon near Highway 97 (runs North to South).


Going East or West of Highway 97, you can easily access the middle interior areas of Oregon via Highway 20, Highway 26, and Interstate 84.

Some of the other major areas of Oregon are accessed via Interstate 84, which primarily runs East to West. Once it reaches Pendleton, Oregon, the road begins to head South towards Ontario, Oregon.

“Our trucks are in there weekly helping deliver cars and trucks to dealerships and individuals all over Oregon and in nearby states like Idaho, California and Washington. Oregon car dealers and private citizens count on us to get their vehicles delivered quickly and safely.” – Scott Chesarek, J&S Transportation co-founder.

Oregon Auto Auctions

Regardless of whether you’re buying a car at an auto auction or not, it’s helpful to be aware if one is happening in your area.

Not every residential street allows big trucks, so you may need to arrange a safe place for pickup or drop-off of your vehicle. Rather than having to leave town for the nearest truck stop, you have the option to arrange to meet our driver at a nearby auto auction.

J&S does a lot of business with Brashers Northwest Auto Auction in Eugene. We also work with two auto auctions that operate in Portland, Oregon.

These are pretty common areas for us, and we’ll have trucks there at one or more of these auctions on a consistent basis. They’re all within about 80 miles of each other and we pick up from and deliver vehicles to these auctions week in and week out.

Oregon Car Dealers

In the market for a new car, but you’re shopping outside of your local area? Over the years J&S has cultivated strong working relationships with a number of car dealerships throughout Oregon.

Some of our early customers include Seaport Auto Wholesale, in Milwaukie; Carr Auto Group, in Beaverton; and the Dick Hannah Dealerships, with locations in Portland and Vancouver, WA. Thanks to word of mouth and our reputation for on-time delivery and straightforward communication, our business in Oregon is strong.

Some other dealerships we work with are:

Crater Lake Ford, in Medford
The Auto Network Group in Bend
Bob Stone Auto Center in The Dalles
The Gentry Auto Group, which includes:
Gentry Ford Lincoln in Baker City and Ontario
Gentry Subaru, in Ontario
Gentry Dodge Chrysler Jeep, in Baker City

J&S also delivers to statewide chains, such as The Kendall Auto Group with 10 locations, and Lithia Auto Stores with over 20 dealerships throughout Oregon.

There are car dealers we do auto transportation for in Portland as well.

Rental Agencies

In addition to picking up and delivering vehicles at dealerships, J&S also works with car rental agencies throughout Oregon. Rental chains such as Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Avis, Hertz, and National rely on J&S to keep their fleets stocked with vehicles.

Highway 1 along the Oregon coast

Rural and Coastal Oregon Auto Transport

Most of our business in Oregon does happen along the I-5 corridor, but not all.

We do pickup and deliver to the more rural areas in eastern Oregon and along the coast. Towns like Coos Bay on the coast, Grants Pass, Ashland, Klamath Falls, Medford, Burns, Lakeview, and other harder to get to places are all in our service area. Whether along Highway 101 on the coast or the winding mountain roads, it may be more difficult, but we’ve never told anyone we couldn’t transport a vehicle because of where they live.

In the case of a more difficult order, we’ll contact the customer and say, “Mr./Mrs. Customer, this is J&S. This is what we can do, or can’t do,” and go from there.

We’re confident in saying that we can cover all of Oregon, whether it’s Astoria up in Northwest or down to Brookings in the Southwest. If a car is in a very difficult location, we offer a couple options and prices for the client.

One option, is we’ll do it for the car shipping rate quoted on the website because we honor what we quote, but it’s going to take a little longer simply because the client lives in a very difficult town.

Another option, would be for the client to drive the car to the nearest town along a major thoroughfare to a previously arranged secure drop off point where J&S will pick it up. We go all over the state, so this would significantly speed up the transport of the vehicle, and reduce the cost.

Understanding Auto Transport

There are two kinds of auto transportation companies. Auto haulers (also known as car transporters), and auto transport brokers sound alike, but there are some very important differences.
