Idaho to Washington auto transports are very common for us since both Idaho and Washington are in our primary car shipping region. Our own fleet of trucks serve these two states on a regular basis, but we also have strong ties with other car carriers that ship cars on this route.
Most of the transports from Idaho to Washington are from the Treasure Valley cites of Boise, Meridian, and Nampa, to the Seattle and Tacoma areas of Washington. Another common route is from the Treasure Valley to Spokane.

The distance from Boise, ID to Seattle, WA is only about 500 miles depending on the specific route a car carrier takes. A driver will be able to ship a car on that route in a day or two at the most.

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.

As an auto transport company with over 20 years of experience serving the state of Washington, we have transported thousands of vehicles in and out of the state. It is one of the main states we ship in and out of as we work with private vehicle owners, auto auctions, and dealerships throughout the state. As a door-to-door auto transporter, we'll go anywhere throughout the state of Washington to ship a vehicle!
The two primary shipping corridors in the state are I-5 and I-90. We regularly transport vehicles to and from Seattle, Tacoma, and Olympia along I-5. Along I-90, we're regularly transporting vehicles to and from Spokane, Moses Lake, and Ellensburg. Those two shipping lanes and the cities along them are your best bets for the fastest and cheapest auto transports to and from Washington.
The most challenging car shipping areas in Washington are the northern portion of I-5 (Everett up to Bellingham) and anything west of Seattle and Tacoma in the heart of the Puget Sound (cities such as Gig Harbor, Bremerton, Port Orchard, Bainbridge Island, and Poulsbo). Transports in these areas will usually take longer and cost more – especially those in the heart of Puget Sound. In fact, we rarely send trucks over into the Puget Sound area because of the time and expense it can take. Most of our customers realize they can expedite their transports and save a lot of money by meeting a carrier in the Tacoma area.
Other challenging locations are all those towns and cities in Washington north of US Highway 2. This highway runs almost in a straight line from Spokane to Seattle. Anything north of that line is challenging. There aren't any interstates in that region of the state and the towns and cities are sparsely populated. Car carriers just aren't going in and out of those areas on a regular basis.
