Auto Transport to Pierre, South Dakota
Pierre is a city in as well as the capital of the U.S. state of South Dakota. It is also the county seat of Hughes County, and is home to over 13,600 residents. Its size makes finding auto transport to Pierre a bit more difficult, as does its location in South Dakota. The state itself is not popular among auto shipping carriers, which is important because it means they don’t normally run routes through the Dakotas. Large states with small populations and no big cities anywhere near them make for non-profitable routes. Therefore, carriers don’t go there if they don’t have to – and if they do, they’re usually charging quite a bit more to make up for the lack of customers.
Is auto transport to Pierre popular?
No, it’s not, and this usually means higher prices and longer wait times for you. There’s not much you can do about that, unfortunately; you can only make South Dakota so appealing to truckers, after all. Of course, being the capital of the entire state does help a bit, as it usually attracts businessmen and politicians who may need auto shipping services. But that’s a small increase if any at all; most of the time, finding a carrier willing to run a route through South Dakota at standard prices is going to be difficult. This means that you’ll likely encounter price hikes so carriers can make enough money to justify running routes through Pierre.
It really doesn’t help that the city sits in the center of the state and not along any interstate highways. The interstates are the main way that carriers get around. They allow carriers to travel at high speeds, which results in better fuel efficiency and also faster transit times. This results in more money going into their pockets more quickly. If those interstates pass through multiple major cities, even better. That way, they have access to more customers in a shorter time frame. With auto transport to Pierre you get none of those benefits, as much as it sucks to say it. Expect high prices, long wait times, and double both during the winter. Because in the winter there’s no one going through South Dakota, the weather is brutal, and carriers try to avoid it at all costs.
