Auto Transport to Casper, Wyoming
Casper is a city in as well as the county seat of Natrona County, in the U.S. state of Wyoming. It is currently home to a population of over 55,300 residents, which makes it the second-largest city by population in the entire state. Founded during the time when Wyoming was still being settled, oil was discovered in the area not long afterward, and thus began Casper’s life as an oil town. Oil led to the city being included on rail lines, which helped bring new residents. Over time, Casper developed into a “major” smaller city in Wyoming, and today it is considered one of the best places in the state to raise a family.
As a vehicle shipping location, Casper could definitely be more popular. The biggest problem with auto transport to Casper – literally – is the fact that it’s located in Wyoming, which on the whole is not that popular of an auto transport location for several reasons. Auto shippers prefer to run routes into and out of major cities along major interstates – Casper is not a major city, and Wyoming is not a heavily-populated state, which means that auto transporters are going to have to spend more money on getting themselves into and out of anywhere in Wyoming due to the lack of demand for car shipping services. This means that it can not only cost more than bigger cities of a similar distance away from your pickup location, but it usually means longer pickup windows as well, as there are fewer carriers willing to run routes through Wyoming.
It does help a lot that Casper sits right along Interstate 25. While I-25 is not the most heavily traveled (or most popular) interstate highway among car carriers, they do prefer to stick to major interstate highways as opposed to state routes when they are running interstate routes. This is because the interstates all eventually take them to big cities with major population centers and a higher number of potential (and actual) customers. Wyoming doesn’t see a lot of demand, which means that the demand it does see typically comes in and out of big cities in the state – big, of course, being relative. I-25 links Casper with Cheyenne, the largest city in Wyoming, to the south, and I-90, a major east-west interstate, to the north, which does help keep auto transport to Casper prices a bit more competitive.
