Texas Car Shipping

Texas is the second most populated state in the country with over 29 million people spread out over 268,596 square miles! To say there is a demand for car shipping services in Texas is an understatement. The fastest and cheapest transports are going to be to and from the heavily populated cities of Fort Worth, Dallas, Arlington, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston. If you look at these cities on the map, they form a triangle. If you stay in that triangle, you'll be in great shape when shipping a car to or from Texas!

Other solid car shipping locations in the state are those cities along I-20, which is a major trucking corridor into the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex. Those cities include Odessa, Midland, and Abilene. These are all good car shipping locations in Texas.

As we look at the challenging car shipping locations in Texas, let's start with the least challenging. El Paso on the far western edge of the state, and Lubbock and Amarillo up in the panhandle, can all be challenging at times depending on the location of the other side of the transport route. We don't do a lot of transports to or from these locations, but when they do come up, they usually aren't too challenging but sometimes they can be. In short, these aren't the best locations, but they certainly aren't the worst either.

The most challenging car shipping locations in Texas are going to be those locations south of the I-10 corridor, especially those locations near the Texas/Mexico border. Those locations south of I-10 are the least travelled parts of the state for car carriers, especially the further south you get. These transports always take more time and money compared to other parts of the state. While certain carriers do run south of I-10 down into Corpus Christi and even further south along the Gulf Coast on the eastern side of Texas, there just aren't that many that do.

Illinois Car Shipping

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.
