Are you interested in Nebraska auto transportation services but are unsure about how to go about actually shipping your vehicle to or from the state? That’s okay – shipping a vehicle isn’t difficult, but it’s definitely different than what you get from Amazon or eBay. When it comes to shipping a car, popular areas are cheaper and often see vehicles shipped more quickly. Popular areas tend to be big cities along major interstates – places that are easy to get to and from and that have a lot of customers. Nebraska…doesn’t really have that.
Quick Facts About Nebraska

Some Information About Nebraska Auto Transportation
The reason why Nebraska isn’t a popular car shipping location comes down to size and population. Nebraska is home to few major cities – it’s largest are Omaha and Lincoln. It also is home to few major interstates – the main one being I-80, which cuts a swath east-west through south-central Nebraska. Carriers like using I-80, but don’t like having to deviate from it. So the main stops in Nebraska tend to be cities that sit along the interstate. Those that don’t often cost more and take longer to find a carrier – even if you’re paying top dollar.
That being said, the big cities shouldn’t see much issue. I-80 hooks up with I-25 in Wyoming, a bit north of Denver. Of all the cities in the region Denver is easily the most popular for auto transporters, so using I-80 to get there is a pretty good strategy. This helps keep prices for customers shipping along the route lower. If you’re not shipping to or from a big city in Nebraska, speak to an agent about getting your vehicle to a big city. This can help mitigate price hikes and make it more appealing for a carrier. Remember, carriers compete for loads, so by making it more enticing you up your chances of it getting picked up on time and on budget.
About Popular Nebraska Auto Transportation Locations
Omaha is easily the most popular car transport location in Nebraska. It sits on the eastern border, close to other major shipping hubs. This means that it’s a lot easier to get to. It’s easy to access thanks to its location along both I-80 and I-29 as well. This means carriers can easily get to and from the area for a decent price.
Like Omaha, Lincoln sits in eastern Nebraska which immediately makes it more enticing for carriers. It also sits along I-80, which is a major shipping corridor through the state. As such, prices and services to or from Lincoln shouldn’t be hard to find. It can also act as a good secondary location if you’re shipping to or from a rural area.
Bellevue is a suburb of Omaha, so you shouldn’t have any issues shipping to or from the city. Carriers will often include suburbs of major cities in the price for shipping. This is because it’s not hard to travel an additional ten miles or so to get to the burbs when the pay is that good. You can speak to your agent if you have additional questions about shipping to or from Bellevue or any other city in Nebraska as well.

- "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
