Nevada auto transportation services aren’t the easiest things to find, sadly. The state is known for being in the middle of the desert, and much of it is inhospitable for many people. The main exceptions are the cities of Las Vegas and Reno, which make up the two most popular car transport locations in Nevada. That being said, finding a company willing to travel to Nevada is going to take some money and some time, and sometimes a bit more of both than you’d like. Luckily, we price our freight to move within seven to ten days, so if you book with Affordable Auto Transportation you know you’ll be in good hands.

Some Information About Nevada Auto Transportation
As mentioned, Nevada is pretty barren outside Vegas and Reno. This is because the state is located in the depths of the southwestern desert. As such, there aren’t a lot of people outside of major cities. So when you’re shipping to or from Nevada, the best places to ship are going to be Las Vegas and Reno.
That being said, of the two, Vegas is definitely easier to get to. For starters, it sits along I-15, which is a major route running out of Los Angeles and north through the Mountain West states. This is a big boon, since carriers can start in L.A., go through Vegas, and head up to Boise to catch I-84 or I-90. Through Reno is I-80, which to be fair is a pretty big east-west interstate running out of San Francisco and all the way to New Jersey. This definitely sees traffic, but not as much through the western states.
But outside of those two cities, you’re going to be spending a lot to get a car to or from Nevada. There’s just no demand outside of Vegas or Reno, so carriers don’t go there. If you’re pressed for time or cash, you can talk to an agent about moving your pickup or delivery location. This helps especially if you’re somewhere rural. Carriers are more likely to pick up your load if you’re shipping out of a major city or suburb, after all.
About Popular Nevada Auto Transportation Locations
Las Vegas is easily the most popular auto transportation location in Nevada. Home to hundreds of thousands and anchoring a metro area of millions is a big draw for car shippers. Ease of access also helps the cause. Typically, Las Vegas is going to be the cheapest place in Nevada to ship a vehicle from or to.
As the biggest suburb of Las Vegas, shipping a vehicle to or from Henderson shouldn’t be difficult. Many carriers actually prefer Henderson to Vegas itself mostly because it’s smaller and out of the way. Luckily, Vegas is a western city, as is Henderson; they tend to be more spread out in terms of road width and size. This usually results in an easier time getting around, so Henderson should be easy to get to for most carriers.
Though Reno is the third-largest city in the state, it’s not popular among auto shipping carriers. There’s no one route that connects it to Las Vegas, which makes it harder to get to from within Nevada. This, coupled with lack of demand from customers, usually results in higher prices for Reno car shipping services.

- "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
