Transporting a vehicle to or from Colorado Springs is easy and hard at the same time, making it difficult for customers to find reliable transportation services at certain times of the year. On the one hand, Colorado Springs sits right along I-25, which connects major cities like Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Colorado Springs, Denver and Fort Collins together in one long north-south line. On the other hand, it’s located in the eastern foothills of the Rocky Mountains, and despite its size it is not that popular of an auto transportation location, much like the rest of Colorado. Its isolation and relative disinterest by many auto transporters, who would rather run routes through California, Texas, New York and Florida, typically makes it more difficult to find vehicle transportation services to or from Colorado Springs. Summertime is generally easier to find carriers willing to go to and from Colorado Springs, but it also means higher prices; during the winter months, winter weather – which can get severe in the area due to the Rocky Mountains – makes it more difficult for auto shippers to get to or from the area as well.
Of course, auto transport services to or form Colorado Springs is doable – it’s just going to cost a bit more than other areas that are more popular, more often than not.
