Idaho is a state located in the Pacific Northwest region of the U.S., just east of Washington and Oregon. It is home to over 1.65 million residents, making it the 39th-largest state by population in the U.S. This makes auto transport to Idaho a bit easier to find, but on the whole it’s not a popular shipping location.
Carriers don’t like it because it’s up near the middle of nowhere, and customers don’t like it because there’s not a lot to see and do. As such, shipments can take longer to get picked up and often cost more.
A bit about auto transport to Idaho
The first major drawback for auto transport to Idaho is its rural nature. There aren’t a lot of big cities in Idaho – Boise is easily the largest. But Boise is just one city, though it is definitely the most popular shipping location in the state.
As such, carriers have a harder time getting to most other cities in Idaho, either because of lack of access or simply low demand. There’s more people shipping to Boise than anywhere else, though, so that’s typically where they go. Coeur d’Alene is another rather easy-to-get-to area of Idaho, but it’s far north. Luckily, it sits along I-90, which helps a lot.
See the interstate highways are really what make or break Idaho auto transport services. I-90 travels through the northern stretch of the state (also known as the Panhandle). I-84 also wends its way through the southern areas, notably Boise. I-15 runs north and connects through Pocatello, in the east.
So carriers definitely can get around the state. The issue, though, again, is lack of real demand. Those routes aren’t popular among customers, either – they go through some of the most sparsely populated states in the country. This results in higher prices and often longer wait times for dispatch. While Idaho auto transport services are not impossible to find, they may end up costing you a bit more than you initially thought.
