Missoula Auto TransportationAre you looking for Missoula auto transportation services, but not sure where to start? That’s okay – shipping to Montana can be kind of tricky if you’ve never shipped a car before. And even if you have, Montana isn’t the easiest state to ship from or to. While the city is home to over 73,000 residents, it’s also the second-largest city in the state. And when one of the state’s largest cities has a population that low, at least in comparison to other cities in other states, it can make it harder for carriers to find customers. As such, shipping to Missoula tends to be a bit more expensive, per-mile, than other, more popular cities. But that doesn’t mean we can’t ship your car at a great rate – read on to learn more about how we do it.

Missoula Auto Transportation Information

Missoula auto transportation has both pros and cons. On the pro side, it sits right along I-90, one of the main east-west interstate highways in the U.S. So this naturally is going to draw some carriers considering that they don’t want to get away from interstates if they can help it.

But at the same time, Missoula sits pretty far west in Montana, away from the other major cities like Billings. This is somewhat problematic, because it means carriers have to travel through some pretty barren parts of Montana in order to get there. That said, it’s also on the way to Spokane, Washington, which means that carriers traveling west through Montana will likely stop in Spokane and, further on, Seattle. So it’s not like they’re going to stay in the boonies.

In terms of price, you’ll likely see slightly higher price-per-mile costs than to other major cities. More importantly, though, carriers don’t want to go to Montana, so it may take us a bit longer to find a carrier. If you’re pressed for time, but not money, one option is to simply pay more than the going rate to entice carriers to pick your car up. But you should talk to an agent about it because your route could actually be cheaper. It really just depends on the factors of your specific shipment.

  • "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
