Auto Transport to Sparks, Nevada
Sparks is a city located in Washoe County, in the U.S. state of Nevada. It is currently home to a population of over 90,200 total residents, making it the second-largest city in Washoe County, the fifth-largest by population in Nevada, and the second-largest city in the Reno-Sparks, Nevada Metropolitan Statistical Area, one of the largest metro areas in Nevada. American settlement of Sparks began in the 1850’s. It did not grow much, and was mostly a backwater settlement in the middle of nowhere. That changed in 1904 when the Southern Pacific Railroad built a rail line nearby, and built a switch yard and maintenance sheds and bays in Sparks. Over time, gambling came to the area, and this promised new jobs and new industries. Today, Sparks is continuing to grow, and has not seen population decline since it was first incorporated prior to 1910.

Suffice it to say, there are definitely more popular areas in Nevada to ship a vehicle, with Las Vegas being probably the most popular shipping location in the state. Auto shippers want to run routes into and out of major cities and metropolitan areas in order to keep their trucks full and on the road. While Sparks is home to over 90,000 people, that’s pretty small in comparison to larger cities, even one like Las Vegas. Auto shippers can make more money on more heavily-populated routes because they can keep their trucks full more easily. If they have full trucks while they are going from A to B to C to D and so on, they make more money, spend less time on the road, and ultimately help keep your prices lower and services faster.
The only major interstate highway that runs through Sparks is Interstate 80, which through the western U.S. sees less traffic than its route in the eastern parts of the country. The west is sparsely populated east of San Francisco, and while I-80 does run from San Francisco to Boston there are going to be some stretches that just aren’t heavily traveled or densely populated. This can make transportation costs for carriers higher, particularly fuel, as they have longer to go between pickups and thus have to spend more money on actually getting from pickup to delivery for their customers. I-80 definitely does help keep your costs low, just not as helpful as if Sparks were surrounded by big cities, or sat close to one.
