Auto Transport to Laramie, Wyoming
Laramie is a city in as well as the county seat of Albany County, Wyoming, and is currently home to a population of over 30,000 residents. Laramie, by population, is the third-largest city in the state of Wyoming. The city of Laramie was first founded in the mid-1860’s, and by late 1868 had railroad lines connecting it to the rest of the United States. The railroads helped spur Laramie’s initial growth, and in 1887 the University of Wyoming was constructed in Laramie; it added an agricultural department as well as an experimental department by 1891. The university today is one of Laramie’s largest economic sectors, employing hundreds of residents and helps to support the city financially.
Laramie, as a city, isn’t the most popular location to ship a vehicle to, namely because it’s in Wyoming, which is one of the least-populated states in the Union and is not incredibly popular among auto transportation companies. It does have a few things going for it, though, which helps the cause – it sits along a major interstate, I-80, and sits just west of Cheyenne, the largest city in the state. More importantly, though, Laramie sits along I-80, which connects San Francisco with Boston and, during the summer months, is a popular auto transport route, particularly in the eastern U.S. I-80 also connects to I-25 in Cheyenne, which auto shippers can use to run routes down south into Denver.
During the summer months is generally when Laramie is the cheapest to ship to or from, as that’s when the highest amount of auto transporters are on the road. Some carriers operate seasonally, taking loads in the spring, summer and early fall, and skipping out on the winter – particularly those who service less-than-ideal routes through snowy areas. Laramie falls into this category; during the winter months, average highs only reach into the low 30’s, and lows are often in the teens and single digits – the record low in Laramie is -50 degrees Fahrenheit. The city averages 53 inches of snow per year, which can make auto shipping really difficult outside of the summer shipping season.
If you need to ship a vehicle into or out of Laramie, it’s certainly possible, just might cost a bit more than other routes, and possibly take a bit longer to get a vehicle picked up since less carriers are shipping along routes that include Laramie in them.
