Auto Transport Routes: Tucson to Des Moines
Transporting a vehicle from Tucson to Des Moines can be kind of a complicated move, considering there’s no real straight-shot from one to the other. Unlike I-10, which traverses the entire southern U.S. in one straight shot, passing through a lot of major metro areas, the route from Tucson to Des Moines is somewhat complicated. Carriers typically travel on interstate roads from one location to another, and more often than not they run specific routes as opposed to just finding loads wherever they are – there are carriers that will just go from town to town, constantly finding new loads to move and updating their routes to work with what they’re moving, but many more carriers run from one state to another, or even one city to another along one or two interstates.
Now, Tucson to Des Moines…well, you’re looking at jumping along a few different interstates to get there. Des Moines is easier to ship to if you’re moving from a city along I-35 or I-40, but Tucson isn’t on those; it sits along I-10, which carriers will have to use before heading north along I-25 until they can catch I-40 near Albuquerque, New Mexico. From there they’ll usually head east until they can head north on I-35 out of Oklahoma City; however, once they hit Wichita, Kansas, they’re going to have to go along several different somewhat goofy roads before hitting I-35 north again in Kansas City, Missouri.
So, on the whole, when transporting from Tucson to Des Moines, you can expect some higher prices due to the more complicated route and it may take a bit longer for carriers to be willing to travel such a winding route. Some companies may take different routes – there are always multiple ways to get from one area to another, of course. In this blog we simply looked at the route that would take the least amount of time while simultaneously heading through the most major metropolitan areas, which is actually what carriers look for.
