Some Information About New Mexico Auto Transportation

The biggest reason as to why New Mexico just isn’t all that popular for carriers or customers is its remoteness. New Mexico is mostly desert, so the climate doesn’t sit right with a lot of people. Then there’s the lack of things to do outside of the major cities, which tend to be where carriers are going anyway. So there’s not a lot in New Mexico to draw new people to the area. This results in a dearth of car shipping services simply because there’s low customer demand.

Now, this doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to ship your car to New Mexico. It’s just going to cost a bit more and take a bit longer. But carriers have ways to get in and out of the state, especially cities like Albuquerque, Las Cruces and Santa Fe. Those are the big-name cities to ship from and to and are usually the cheapest as well. With access via I-40 and I-25, Albuquerque is the main shipping hub of the state. But because of the size of New Mexico, carriers don’t go there unless they have to. Make sure to speak to an agent for more information about New Mexico auto transportation services.

About Popular New Mexico Auto Transportation Locations

Albuquerque is easily the most popular car shipping location in New Mexico. It is centrally located, it is connect to major interstates, and it has the largest population of any city in the state. As such, carriers are going to want to go to Albuquerque first and foremost. This results in lower wait times for pickup and lower prices as well.

Las Cruces
Las Cruces may not have the population that Albuquerque does, but it definitely sees some demand. Again, it’s low compared to other major areas, especially cities like Los Angeles and Houston. But it does see traffic and as such won’t be that difficult to ship to. It’s not North Dakota.

Rio Rancho
Usurping Santa Fe as the third-largest city in the state, Rio Rancho is a growing community and is quickly establishing itself as a top car shipping destination in the state. Though it won’t be as easy or as popular as Albuquerque, Rio Rancho is still a place carriers will go if the price is right.

  • "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
