Auto Transport Services to Bossier City
Bossier City is located literally just east of Shreveport, square in the Shreveport-Bossier City metropolitan area. Bossier City was first founded in the 1830’s on the banks of the Red River, and grew to become known as Cane’s City, due to the small trading post operated by a man named Cane. Cane was an influential man in the region and was a big reason why Bossier City began to grow as a town. Residents were attracted to the area by the steamboats, which routinely made stops at the area to collect cotton, corn and sweet potatoes, among other goods and commodities. Bossier City was also influential in helping nearby Shreveport get on the map. Today, Bossier City is not the largest city in northern Louisiana, but is still a major shipping area due to its location and its size. Learn more about Bossier City here.
Bossier City sits just east of Shreveport, along Interstate 20. I-20 is a major east-west interstate that services the southern parts of the southern United States. When transporting a vehicle to or from Bossier City you’ll likely find that it’s not quite as easy as some other cities, particularly Dallas to the west and Atlanta to the east, but it does help that all three cities sit along I-20. It also helps that I-20 links to I-10 in Louisiana via I-49, and I-49 just happens to end at its junction with I-20 near – you guessed it – Bossier City. I-49 runs south through central Louisiana, providing access to many areas that are difficult to reach via surface streets. Auto shippers routinely utilize I-20, particularly in the winter months as generally the routes are clear – it is rare that snow accumulates through the Bossier City area, including the stretches of I-20 heading both west toward Dallas as well as east toward Birmingham and Atlanta.
Of course, there are also long stretches of Interstate 20 that are devoid of major populated areas, western Texas being one of them. I-20 begins at its junction with Interstate 10 in west Texas and runs east through the northern populated areas of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia and South Carolina, so it is especially useful for southern-based carriers looking to haul regionally despite the long stretches of idle nothingness. It is also useful for nationwide carriers as it links I-10 in the west, I-95 in the east, and many north-south oriented interstates that service the middle parts of the country as well. All these make it easier to ship your vehicle to or from Bossier City, and you can read more about that process at our auto transport to and from Bossier City page.
