Auto Transport Routes: New Orleans to Seattle
Most of the time, when you plan on driving from one city to another hundreds or thousands of miles away, you will plan the route you want to take, generally based on how fast it will get you there.
And for most people that works fine, but when it comes to shipping vehicles from one city to another finding the best route from one to the other is a lot more than just finding out how fast you can get there. Shippers need to be able to profit off the routes they drive, which generally means avoiding areas without major cities or routes that go through rural areas.
In this edition of our Auto Transport Routes blog series, we will shed some light on how your vehicle will get moved from New Orleans, Louisiana to Seattle, Washington.
New Orleans to Seattle is a good 2,800 mile trek, and there’s a lot of different ways that shippers can go about getting from the Big Easy to the Rainy City, but one of the easiest trips – if not the quickest – is to take I-10 west from New Orleans all the way to Los Angeles, then turn north on Interstate 5 and head north into Seattle.
This is by far the easiest way for any shipper because not only is it just two interstates that you have to worry about, but also because both interstates pass through some of the most popular auto transport cities in the entire United States. Shippers could also head north, though, out of New Orleans, along I-35 until they hit I-90 in Detroit, but this is generally not as popular because I-35 goes up through the Midwest, passing through only a handful of cities before heading into Canada.
Of course, there are quite literally a million different ways to get from New Orleans to Seattle; the ones mentioned here are likely just options for shippers, and we recommend speaking to your shipping company for more information about the specific route your vehicle will be taking.
