Auto Transport to Nampa, Idaho
Nampa is a city located in Canyon County, in the U.S. state of Idaho. Home to a population of over 81,500 residents, it is the largest city in its county and the second-largest in Idaho, after Boise, and is a major auto transport center in the state. Founded in the early 1880’s along the Oregon Short Line Railroad that ran from Wyoming to Oregon and passed through Idaho, Nampa was originally a railroad town and by 1890 had been incorporated as a city. Growth came from the railroads; by the turn of the 20th century there were four lines running through the city, making it an important warehousing and distribution center in the northwest region of the United States, a role that it continues to fulfill to this day.
Nampa is a principal city of the Boise-Nampa Metropolitan Statistical Area, the largest metropolitan area in the state of Idaho. Idaho itself is not a major auto transport location, unfortunately, mainly due to its lower-than-it-could-be population count and its vast areas of wilderness and rural populations. At the same time, as far as locations within Idaho, the Boise-Nampa area is about as popular as you get, which does help your situation a bit. Car shippers prefer to run routes into and out of major cities surrounded by big metropolitan areas, as that’s where customers tend to congregate and everything is made easier for them including lowering their overhead costs. This in turn helps keep your prices lower.
Nampa sits just a few miles west of Boise, the largest city in Idaho. It also sits right along I-84, an east-west interstate that runs from Portland, Oregon east through Idaho before terminating in Salt Lake City, Utah. On the whole I-84 is not that popular of an auto transport route due to the low amount of major cities that sit along it – outside of Nampa, the largest city along I-84 between Portland and Boise is La Grande, Oregon, which is home to just 13,000 residents. This makes Nampa a major stop for auto transport companies running routes along I-84 and tends to result in better deals due to them actively wanting to stop there.
