Portland Auto TransportationAre you searching for affordable Portland auto transportation services? No, not services to Portland, Oregon, but rather Portland, Maine. Portland is the largest city in Maine and easily the state’s most popular vehicle shipping location. However, it’s located in Maine, which makes it a lot less popular among both customers and carriers. Maine, being located where it is, doesn’t draw a whole lot of car transport traffic. It’s not surprising; Portland is home to just over 67,000 residents. That doesn’t even crack the top 10 in some states! But despite a relative lack of demand, we can still find you great rates for your Portland auto shipping needs and services. Keep reading to learn more.

Portland Auto Transportation Information

Portland is easily Maine’s most popular car shipping location. Located in the southern part of the state, it’s easier to get to than, say, Bangor, or even Augusta, which both sit further north. It’s also larger than those two cities, which usually means more demand from customers. That demand means more interest from carriers.

But it’s not like Portland is popular. Most auto transporters want to stay close to major shipping lanes – that’s not surprising, really, and is something that’s been done throughout history. But in the U.S., this means staying close to major interstate highways. Carriers use the interstates extensively – it makes shipments faster and more cost-effective, which results in lower prices.

When it comes to Portland auto transportation services, carriers can stay right along I-95, which is a major boon for them. I-95 is easily the most popular car shipping corridor in the U.S. Running from Miami to Maine, it passes through some of the nation’s largest cities, including Miami, D.C., Philadelphia, New York City, Boston, and more. Those are all massive car transport hubs, which helps to keep your Portland shipping prices lower.

But it can still take time to find a carrier depending on where you’re shipping from or to. This is why we recommend speaking to someone in our office about your shipment. They can give you more information about the route your vehicle will take and the conditions on it. More importantly, they can better explain the conditions that will affect your prices and services. So what are you waiting for?

  • "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
