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.
The most challenging areas to ship to or from in Texas are in western and southern Texas. Cities in those areas include El Paso, Lubbock, Odessa, Abilene, Corpus Christi, and South Padre Island. These transports can occasionally take a day or two longer and can cost more as those aren’t regular shipping destinations for most carriers.

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.
