Most of the auto transports from Texas to Montana originate from the bigger cities such as Dallas, Austin, and San Antonio and they go to mainly Billings, MT. As a door-to-door transporter, however, we ship vehicles from any location in Texas to any location in Montana!
The main shipping corridors out of Dallas, TX heading to Montana is US-287 to I-70/I-25 heading through Colorado and Wyoming, or I-35 if the carrier has to make a stop up in Oklahoma or Kansas on the way to Montana. Out of Austin, TX the shipping corridor is I-35 up to Fort Worth and then connecting to US-287 heading northwest up to Colorado and Wyoming. If you’re shipping your car out of San Antonio, then the carrier will either travel up I-35 through Austin and then Dallas, or the carrier will head north on I-10.Out of Houston the carrier will likely head north on I-45. You’ll have the cheapest and quickest transports out of those “major hubs” in Texas when shipping to Montana, but we can pick up vehicles anywhere in Texas!
While Texas has great weather all year long, transports heading north to Montana tend to slow down in the winter months as demand slows down. People just aren’t travelling or moving north to Montana during their cold and harsh winters! In contrast, transports from Montana to Texas tend to increase just before winter as people in the north are travelling south to escape the winter!

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.

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.
Other solid car shipping locations include those along I-15 from Helena down to the I-15 and I-90 junction.
Finally, those locations along I-94 from Billings to the North Dakota border are decent car shipping locations. This is a 250-mile trucking corridor that is heavily traveled by car carriers so locations along it such as Miles City and Glendive are all good locations to ship cars to or from.
The challenging car shipping locations in Montana are those locations 50 miles or more north or south of I-90 and I-94. The further away you get from those interstates, the more challenging the car shipments will be, meaning they will cost more money and will take more time to complete.
Other challenging car shipping locations in the state include those locations north of Helena and south of Dillon on I-15.
We are strategically based in Billings, MT. The two major trucking corridors in the state join and divide here, I-90 and I-94, so it is an ideal hub for car shipments to and from Montana. For the convenience of our customers, we provide free secured terminal shipping in Billings for pick ups and drop offs if needed.
