We ship cars from Oregon to Montana all the time given our long-standing relationships with auto auctions and car dealerships in Oregon. Our customers buy vehicles from these auctions and car dealerships and they hire us to transport the vehicles to them.
The primary car shipping hub in Oregon is Portland. It is the largest city in the state and two interstates intersect there (I-84 and I-5), making it an ideal location for car carriers. We also ship vehicles from Salem and Eugene, which are just south of Portland along the busy trucking corridor, I-5.
Another area in Oregon we ship from is Bend, although not nearly as much as we do from Portland, Salem, and Eugene because of it's relative remote location in Oregon.
The primary city we ship to in Montana is Billings, where our company is headquartered. Other cities we ship to regularly in Montana are Missoula and Bozeman. Another area we’ll occasionally ship vehicles to is Kalispell.
If you look at the map of Oregon and Montana, you see there isn’t a direct line from Portland to Billings because of the mountains. Car carriers typically drive east on I-84 and then head north on I-82/US 395/I-90 up to Spokane, WA. Then from Spokane, continue east on I-90 to Missoula, Bozeman, and Billings.

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.

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 Big Belt Mountains and the Lewis Range of the northern Rockies in the center of the state, 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 avoid shipping your car in the winter and you’ll want to have your car picked up or dropped off as close to I-90 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 east and west 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.
