Oregon and northern California are in our primary car shipping region where are own trucks regularly travel between the two states to ship cars. We also have strong relationships with car carriers that regularly ship cars from Oregon to California for our customers.

Most of the car shipments from Oregon to California originate from the three cities in Oregon that are along I-5, which are Portland, Salem, and Eugene. I-5 is a primary trucking corridor between these two states so car carriers are regularly traveling up and down it all year long. The most common delivery areas in California are the main car shipping locations of Sacramento, San Francisco, San Jose, Fresno, and Los Angeles. We also ship to San Diego occasionally but not as often as the other main cities in California.

The distance from Portland, OR to Fresno, CA is only 749 miles, and a vehicle on this route can usually be delivered in two days once it is picked up.

Oregon Auto Transport

The population of Oregon is mostly concentrated in western Oregon in the Willamette Valley, which stretches along I-5 from Eugene in the south up through Salem and into Portland in the north. Those are your best cities to ship cars to and from in Oregon. Grants Pass and Medford located in southwestern Oregon on I-5 are great car shipping locations as well. Carriers are constantly going up and down I-5 so anything along that interstate is going to make for a relatively easy and painless auto transport relative to any other location in the state.

Redmond and Bend, located almost in the center of Oregon, are very popular car shipping locations but transports there are actually very difficult (i.e. usually requires more money and more time to complete the transport). It’s a difficult area because it’s surrounded by forests, is along a mountain range, and isn’t directly connected to any interstates.

Another challenging car shipping area in Oregon is anywhere along the Pacific coast, along Highway 101. Any auto transport to or from this area will usually require the most money and the most time to complete. If you look at a map closely, you’ll understand why. Everything along Highway 101 is completely isolated from the rest of the state of Oregon. There is nothing but forests in between Highway 101 and I-5, and there are few roads connecting Highway 101 to I-5. Carriers are not serving anything along Highway 101 on a regular basis so those transports always require carriers to go out of their way just to complete a single transport.

California Auto Transport

When shipping a car to or from California, I-5 is your friend. That is the main trucking artery in the state. The bulk of all auto transports are up and down the I-5. The closer your pick up and delivery locations are to I-5, the quicker and cheaper your transport will be. The most friendly shipping locations in the state are Sacramento in the north and Los Angeles in the south and any location along the I-5 in between those two cities. San Diego isn’t bad either but given its extreme southern location, it can sometimes make for a slightly more expensive and longer transport time.

While not directly along I-5, other “car shipping friendly” locations include Modesto and Fresno to the east of I-5, and San Jose, Fremont, and Oakland to the west of I-5 along the coast. Speaking of coastline locations, parts of San Francisco can be challenging so if you are shipping to or from the city you can expect to pay more.

The most challenging (i.e. more expensive and longer transport times) car shipping locations are going to be those locations that hug the coastline or are in or near the vast forested and mountainous areas of California. While we are a door-to-door auto transport company, we have our limitations. There are just some locations trucks can’t get to. If you live up in a remote area up in the mountains or deep in a forested area, you’ll likely have to meet a driver somewhere along a major highway or interstate near your location.

The other challenging aspect of car shipping to or from California is the price of gas in the state. Even in the best economic times the price of gas in California is almost always the highest in the country. Carriers have to make a living so they don't eat those increased costs. They pass them along to you the consumer! As a result, all things being equal, auto transports in and out of California are going to be higher just because of the price of gas in the state so be prepared for that.
