Idaho Car Shipping

When you look at the map of Idaho, it should be easy to spot the areas where shipping cars will be the cheapest and quickest. All the cities in southern Idaho along I-84/I-86/I-15 are your best bets. Those cities include the Treasure Valley cities of Nampa, Meridian, and Boise on the west, to Jerome and Twin Falls in the south, to Pocatello and Idaho Falls on the east. This is the primary corridor car carriers travel in Idaho.

Anything outside that primary corridor is going to add cost and time to your transport particularly those towns and cities in and around the Boise National Forest and the Salmon-Challis National Forest. Most of the state highways that service these national forest areas have length restriction laws that make it illegal for longer trucks to travel on them. State highways such as 75, 55, 21, and 3 have such restrictions. When we have auto transports in these areas where longer trailers are being used, we have to have our customers meet drivers on nearby highways that don't have these restrictions.

As you head to northern Idaho, your best shipping location is going to be Coeur d’ Alene. We do a lot of shipping in and out of Coeur d’ Alene for the various car dealers we have relationships with there. It’s right on I-90 which is a very busy trucking corridor so it’s an ideal shipping location. When you get up into the panhandle to cities such as Sandpoint and Bonners Ferry, transports can get challenging so expect increased costs and time to get your transport completed.

The other thing to keep in mind is that sometimes winters can be harsh in Idaho. Cold temperatures and snow can wreak havoc on transports. As a result, be prepared for potential delays during the winter months and sometimes increased costs as well because there may be fewer carriers willing to serve the state during the winter. For example, if you need to ship a car from Texas to Idaho in late January and it's a bad winter, it could take a day or two longer to secure a carrier than it would if you did that same transport in the middle of summer.

We have been shipping cars in and out of Idaho for 20+ years so we have the experience to handle any weather Idaho throws at us. We also have strong relationships with carriers and rollback companies so we can handle transports from remote areas in Idaho to populated areas such as the Boise, Nampa, and Meridian.

Minnesota Car Shipping

We’ve been doing more and more Minnesota auto transports, especially from Montana to Minnesota, but from (and to) other states as well. Like all states, Minnesota has “easy” locations and more challenging locations to ship a car to or from. Let’s start with the easy car shipping locations in Minnesota.

There are three main trucking corridors in Minnesota. There is I-90 that runs west/east in far southern Minnesota, I-94 that runs west/east in the middle of the state, and then I-35 that runs north/south on the eastern side of the state. Anything on or close to these corridors are going to be solid car shipping locations, but some are better than others.

The best car shipping location is the Twin Cities metro area (Minneapolis/St. Paul) where the state’s primary population is and where I-94 and I-35 intersect. St. Cloud in central Minnesota along I-94 is probably the next best location. Albert Lea in southern Minnesota along I-35 and I-90, and Rochester, which is close to I-90 in southeast Minnesota, are good locations as well.

Turning to the more challenging car shipping locations in Minnesota, the Fargo/Moorhead area can be hit or miss. We've found that in most cases starting or ending in this area can be challenging (but not always). It is an area served by both I-94 and I-29 so it does help for any "northern Minnesota auto transports," but even with those interstates in play, it can be a challenging location.

The most challenging car shipping locations are those locations in extreme north or northeast Minnesota. If you draw a line from the Fargo/Moorhead area in the west to Duluth in the east, anything north of that line is going to be challenging, and the further north you go from that line, the tougher the transport will be. By challenging we mean the transport may take a few additional days and more money to complete. The reason is car carriers don’t go to those areas on a regular basis. Any of those locations are going to be “out of the way” for most carriers so we may need more time and more money to find a carrier willing to go to those locations.

As a door-to-door auto transporter, we can ship a car to or from any location in Minnesota. We’ve shipped cars as far north as Hallock, MN to as far south as Albert Lea and everything in between!
