Arkansas Auto Transportation Information
Shipping a car to Arkansas isn’t going to be as simple as shipping to, say, California, or Texas, or Florida. This is because there’s not a whole lot of demand for car shipping to Arkansas to begin with. That being said, many carriers will be more than happy to ship your car there. It’s not like it’s a barren wasteland, or anything, it’s just that Arkansas has few major cities and there aren’t as many people actively going there. But there are several popular shipping locations in the state, including Fort Smith, Little Rock and Fayetteville, which you can read more about below.
The issue with Arkansas auto transportation isn’t the big cities, it’s ease of access. Carriers want to run routes to and from big cities that see lots of demand from customers. And they get from one to the next via interstate highways. The main interstate highway through Arkansas is I-40, which to be fair is a pretty important interstate highway. But I-40 doesn’t go through major cities like I-10 does, for instance. So carriers that do travel through Arkansas may have to charge a bit more per-mile to go there. It won’t be drastic, but it’s definitely something to discuss with your agent. And if you’re shipping to a rural area, expect prices to raise even more, due to even more lack of demand.
About Popular Arkansas Auto Transportation Services
Little Rock is probably the most popular car shipping location in all of Arkansas. It is the state’s largest city by population and is one of the economic powerhouses of the state. This means that there is a lot more demand for auto transportation services to or from Little Rock than other cities in the state. Considering it sits along both I-30 and I-40, it’s easy to get to for many carriers. This helps keep prices a bit lower.
Fort Smith is another popular shipping location in the state, this time located in the northwest corner instead of in the middle. The city is also easy to get to, as it sits right along I-40, and also has the advantage of being only a few hours away from several major cities. These cities include Tulsa, Oklahoma; Little Rock, Arkansas; and Springfield, Missouri. So carriers have a variety of options for places to go. this also helps keep prices lower.
Fayetteville sits just a bit north of Fort Smith, and is the state’s third-largest city. It is also close to Bentonville, which is the home of Walmart headquarters. So the area has seen a lot of economic growth in recent years, and this tends to attract more customers – and more carriers, as a result. All three cities listed in this section should be easy to ship to, and it shouldn’t take long to find a carrier willing to go to them. Still, though, speak to an agent to learn more.

- "Being a rather large SUV that needed shipped from California to Nebraska, there were a few challenges. The first truck that arrived refused to pickup the vehicle due to it's size. However, Mike worked diligently and within one week he had a hotshot lined up. The operators of the hotshot were incredibly communicative and accommodating. The vehicle arrived withing 3 days with no damage at all. Although there was the one hiccup, in the end the service received was top notch. I would be happy to ship with Mike in the future." - Miles/California
