Beaverton is a major component of the Portland, OR-Vancouver, WA Metropolitan Statistical Area, the largest metro area between Seattle, to the north, and San Francisco, to the south, and as a major component of the metro area Beaverton tends to be cheaper to ship to and from due to its proximity to Portland. Portland is a popular auto transport area due to its sprawling size, numerous surrounding towns and cities, and access to major freeways and interstate highways. On the whole, Beaverton will be no more expensive to ship into or out of than Portland, and could be cheaper depending on the route your carrier is taking.
The main route through the Portland metro area is Interstate 5, the main north-south interstate highway through the Pacific states. It connects the largest cities on the west coast together including Los Angeles, Sacramento, Portland and Seattle, as well as numerous other major cities along the route. As such, it’s a popular route for carriers to take, and while Beaverton sits a bit off of I-5, it’s still easily accessible from the interstate and tends to be an area that auto shippers usually don’t mind running routes into and out of, which tends to help your prices and services.
During the winter months, you may see higher prices than in the summer, at least depending on the route you’re running. Portland, and by extension Beaverton, as it sits within Portland’s metro area, tend to be less popular during the winter than the summer. Snow is somewhat rare in the area, though not uncommon; ice, however, tends to be a problem during the winter, and this can make some carriers think twice about running routes through the area. During the winter, you’ll want to discuss your shipment with your auto transport agent, to understand the various factors that could be causing your shipping prices or wait times for pickup to increase.
