Reno Auto TransportationOn the hunt for Reno auto transportation services? If so, we can help! Reno is the third-largest city in Nevada by population, and actually a fairly popular car shipping location in the state. It’s not surprising; home to over 225,000 residents in the city proper, and over 425,000 in the surrounding metro area, Reno draws a fair amount of interest from customers. But the issue is ease of access for carriers, especially when you realize that it’s pretty far from any other major cities. But regardless of where you’re shipping from or to, we can help you find affordable Reno auto transportation services. It’s just important to know what to expect when shipping to or from the city, which we’re going to cover today.

Reno Auto Transportation Information

Reno is located in western Nevada and is surrounded by a lot of nothing. That’s not true; Carson City sits a bit south, and that’s the state capital. And with the population the way it is, carriers will be willing to travel to or from Reno because it sits along I-80.

I-80 is a pretty important interstate that runs from San Francisco to New Jersey. It passes through a number of high-profile cities that are popular among auto shippers. So there’s plenty of places that carriers on I-80 can get to out of Reno. Many stop in Reno during cross-country treks either starting from or terminating in San Francisco. This isn’t surprising, but what this means is that shipments that don’t sit along I-80 tend to be more expensive.

This also isn’t surprising. If you’re shipping to or from somewhere that’s far from interstate highways, it’s going to cost more. It often takes a bit longer to find a carrier because they don’t want to deviate from the interstates if they can help it. They will, of course, if the price is right.

This is what makes shipping to or from Reno more challenging – finding the balance between the price the customer wants to pay and what the carriers want to make. Luckily, we’ve got the formula figured out. So make sure to talk to an agent for 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
