The vast majority of the Illinois auto transports we do is in northeast Illinois, specifically the Chicago metro area. “Chicagoland” has a population of around 9.5 million people and has two major trucking corridors that serve the area in the northwest and north (I-90 and I-94), and two trucking corridors in the southwest and south (I-55 and I-57). Given the area’s massive population and numerous interstates serving it, it is an ideal location for car carriers.
A few other car shipping locations in Illinois that aren’t too bad include Rockford in the north, and Peoria and Bloomington in the center of the state.
The most challenging areas to ship a car to or from in Illinois are those areas south of I-70, essentially the southern section of the state. Car carriers aren’t regularly traveling to southern Illinois because the towns and cities there don’t have large populations. Car carriers typically go to high population areas served by interstates. While there are certainly interstates serving southern Illinois, there aren’t a lot of highly populated cities.
Whether you live the Chicago metro area or the small town of Marion, IL in far southern Illinois, or anywhere in between, we can handle your auto transport. As a door-to-door auto transporter, we ship cars to and from any location in Illinois.

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.
