Iowa Car Shipping

When it comes to Iowa auto transports, there are only a few ideal car shipping locations given the limited population and interstates in the state.

When you look at a map of Iowa, you’ll see two main trucking corridors. There is I-80 which runs west/east, and I-35 which runs north/south. Where these two interstates intersect is Des Moines, the largest city in the state and the capital of Iowa. This is the best car shipping location in Iowa. Other ideal locations include those cities along I-80 which include Iowa City and Davenport.

Locations along I-35 and I-380 can also be o.k. at times, but most car carriers are just passing through the state of Iowa on those two interstates with full loads already. They aren’t usually making stops along I-35 or I-380 as they pass through the state.

Now let’s identify the challenging car shipping locations in Iowa. These are locations that may take a little more time and may require more money to get the transport completed because car carriers aren’t serving these locations on a regular basis. These locations are in northwest, northeast, southeast, and southwest Iowa. When you ship a car to or from Iowa, your best bet is to stay on, or as close to, I-80 and I-35.

The other “challenge” to shipping a car to or from Iowa is the same challenge that the neighboring states of Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois have, and that is winter weather! If you’re shipping a car during the winter months, you need to be prepared for potential delays. A heavy snowstorm, for example, can delay an auto transport a day or two (and sometimes more if it’s a bad storm).

We are a door-to-door transporter so we can ship a car to or from any location in Iowa, anytime of the year. To find out how much it will cost to ship a car to or from Iowa, and how long it will take to complete, get an instant quote online or call us at (800) 656-7638.
