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 Illinois Car Shipping

NX transports vehicles to Illinois throughout the year, with a notable increase in early spring. This surge coincides with the return of "snowbirds"—residents who spend the winter in Florida and then head back to their primary homes in Illinois. Additionally, other popular snowbird routes  have cars going to Illinois all the time.

Most of our Illinois auto transports are concentrated in the northeast, particularly the Chicago metropolitan area. "Chicagoland," home to approximately 9.5 million people, is well-served by major trucking corridors like I-90 and I-94 in the northwest and north, and I-55 and I-57 in the southwest and south. The large population and extensive interstate network make it an ideal hub for car carriers. Other favorable car shipping locations in Illinois include Rockford in the north, as well as Peoria and Bloomington in the central part of the state.

Regardless of whether you reside in the bustling Chicago metro area, the small town of Marion in southern Illinois, or anywhere in between, we can manage your auto transport needs. As a door-to-door auto transporter, we ship cars to and from any location in Illinois.

Carriers usually prefer high-population areas with good interstate access, and while southern Illinois does have interstates, it lacks the large cities that attract regular car transport routes.If you are in southern Illinois and are south of I-70, this is where the population is sparse.
