Montana to Washington is a major auto transport route for us and has been for many years. We rep three different auto auctions in Washington. Those auctions include Manheim Seattle Auto Auction in Kent, WA, ADESA in Auburn, AW, and DAA Northwest in Spokane, WA. We have trucks going from Montana to Washington weekly to pick up vehicles sold at those auctions to then transport them to private vehicle owners and dealerships throughout Washington and Montana.
The main corridor our trucks travel from Montana to Washington is I-90. Along that corridor we'll transport vehicles to cities such as Spokane, Moses Lake, Ellensburg, and Seattle. Then from Seattle they may travel north on I-5 to get vehicles shipped to cities such as Everett and Bellingham, or they may travel south on I-5 to get vehicles transported to cities such as Kent, Tacoma, and Olympia.
Of course because we are a door-to-door transporter, we'll start from any destination in Montana to deliver to any destination in Washington. If you have any vehicles that need to be shipped from Montana to Washington, we're the auto transport company to call!

Shipping cars in and out of Montana is challenging for a couple reasons. First, take a look at the landscape of the state. The east side of the state is comprised of the Great Plains with sparsely populated towns and cities. Heading west from the Great Plains you run into the Rocky Mountains, and then you have the Cabinet Mountains and the Bitterroot Range in the west. Second, consider Montana’s weather. It has some of the harshest and longest winters in the country. You combine Montana’s challenging landscape and its weather, and you can understand why shipping cars to and from the state isn’t exactly a walk in the park.
For the quickest and cheapest Montana auto transport, you’ll want to have your car picked up or dropped off as close to I-90 and I-15 as you can. The best cities along I-90 include Billings, Livingston, and Bozeman. As you head further west along I-90, transports get a little more challenging, but Butte and Missoula are still decent pick up and drop off locations. The farther away north or south of I-90 that you ship a car to or from in Montana, the more expensive your transport will be and the longer it may take to get your transport completed. Carriers primarily travel along I-90 in the state of Montana so the farther they need to go off the interstate, the more money they’ll demand to entice them to go “out of their way” and the more time they’ll need to travel the additional miles.
Fortunately, as a Montana auto transport company based in Billings, MT, we have over 20 years of experience handling the unique challenges of shipping vehicles in and out of Montana. We also have relationships with a variety of carriers and rollback companies throughout the state so we can get to some of the most remote areas of the state. There isn’t a transport we can’t handle! Whether you are shipping to or from a remote location like Glasgow or Shelby, or a relatively easy location like Billings, we can get your vehicle shipped quickly and safely.

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. Along I-90, we're regularly transporting vehicles to and from Spokane, Moses Lake, and Ellensburg. These aren't the only corridors we travel either. As a door-to-door auto transporter, we'll go anywhere throughout the state of Washington to ship a vehicle!
Washington is one of the main states we ship to and from given our strong ties in the state with various dealerships and auto auctions. 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.
