From California Car Shipping

When shipping a from California, the closer your pick-up and delivery locations are to I-5, the faster and cheaper your transport will be as the I-5 freeway is your go-to route, every time. As the main trucking artery in the state, it handles the majority of auto transport for us.

The most convenient locations along I-5 are Sacramento in the north and Los Angeles in the south, including any city in between. San Diego, although a viable option, can sometimes result in slightly higher costs and longer transport times due to its southernmost position on I-5.

Another favorable shipping route in California is CA-99, which runs parallel to I-5 but slightly east. Key cities along CA-99 include Chico in the north, Yuba City, Modesto, Fresno, and Bakersfield in the south. These locations are also considered friendly for car shipping.

San Jose and the cities along US-101, down to Los Angeles, are also convenient shipping locations in California. However, there are challenging areas for car shipping within the state. San Francisco, for example, is not the most difficult even though it's very populated. This is largely in part due to the city's toll bridges, super expensive gas prices, and many restricted streets make it an very costly and a time-consuming destination. Consequently, it's safe to say shipping to or from San Francisco typically comes at a premium beaause of all the hassle carriers have to deal with to maneuver around.

The most difficult locations for car shipping are those along CA-1, the coastline, and US-101 north of San Francisco, as well as areas within California's vast forested and mountainous regions. Remote locations, particularly north of Chico and away from I-5, also pose significant challenges.

In contrast, other cities such as Oakland, San Leandro, and Fremont are far  less problematic for car carriers due to the absence of toll bridges and fewer road restrictions.

Inaccessible areas, such as those deep in forests, high in the mountains, or on restricted streets in San Francisco, may require meeting the driver at a nearby major highway or interstate.

Another challenging aspect of car shipping in California is the high cost of gas, which is consistently among the highest in the nation. Carriers must pass these increased costs to consumers, making auto transports in and out of California more expensive.

To Idaho Car Shipping

Shipping a car to or from Idaho can be a straightforward process if you plan a little. Idaho, known for its scenic landscapes and rural areas, has several major cities like Boise, Idaho Falls, and Coeur d'Alene, which are commonly serviced by us here at NX Auto Transport. When shipping a car to Idaho, it is very important to consider the weather conditions, as harsh winters can affect transport rates, times, and availability.

The state is crisscrossed by several major routes that make travel and commerce more accessible. Interstate 84 (I-84) is one of the most significant highways in Idaho, running east-west across the southern part of the state. It connects major cities like Boise, the state capital, and Twin Falls, and extends into neighboring states, making it a corridor for both local and long-distance car transport.

Another important interstate in Idaho is Interstate 15 (I-15), which travels north-south through the eastern part of the state. I-15 runs through Idaho Falls and Pocatello, continuing into Montana to the north and Utah to the south. This interstate is a key route for those traveling between the Canadian border for car shipping and the southwestern United States.

In addition to the interstates, several U.S. highways play a significant role in Idaho’s transportation network. U.S. Highway 95 (US-95) is responsible for connecting the northern and southern Idaho regions.

Cost is a significant factor when shipping a car to or from Idaho. Prices can vary depending on the distance, type of vehicle, and shipping method (open or enclosed transport). Open transport is more economical but exposes the vehicle to the elements, while enclosed transport provides more protection at a higher cost. Additionally, rural areas might incur higher fees due to their remote locations. Requesting quotes from different locations can help in finding a comfort zone between price and how far from a rural town you may wan to go.

People choose to live in Idaho for a variety of reasons, including its natural beauty, outdoor recreational opportunities, and quality of life.  Additionally, cities like Boise provide a mix of urban amenities and a small-town feel, with a relatively low cost of living and a strong sense of community. The state’s growing economy, good schools, and relatively low crime rates also attract families and individuals seeking a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle.

Some leave Idaho due to factors such as limited job opportunities in certain industries, a desire for more options for things to do, or the state’s sometimes harsh weather conditions. While Idaho has a growing economy, it may not offer the same level of career advancement opportunities as larger metropolitan areas.
