Iowa Auto Transport ServicesIowa is a state located in the Midwest region of the United States. It is home to over 3.1 million residents and home to several major cities, notably Des Moines, its largest. Des Moines makes finding Iowa auto transport services easier, but it’s still not all that popular of a car shipping location.

The reason why is its makeup – it is heavily agricultural and decidedly rural. As such, there’s not much demand for auto transportation services either to or from the state. This often results in longer wait times for dispatch and pickup and, at least in more rural areas, higher prices.

A bit about Iowa auto transport services

As we mentioned, Iowa is definitely a rural state. This is problematic for some carriers as it makes getting to certain locations more difficult financially. Routes through Iowa don’t see much demand from customers, so there’s fewer loads for carriers. This deters them and they often run different routes that make more money. Those that do run routes through Iowa, regardless of the year, tend to charge more to or from smaller areas. Des Moines will likely be the cheapest place to ship in Iowa, though it definitely depends on your route.

The reason why is that if your pickup or delivery location is outside of Des Moines, but along a major interstate, it will likely yield lower prices. Iowa only has two interstates running through it, I-80 and I-35, which can be problematic. But most states only have a couple anyway, and carriers plan routes around them.

The largest population centers in Iowa, notably Des Moines, Cedar Rapids and Davenport, all sit along a major interstate. This is part of why those areas are cheaper when discussing Iowa auto transport prices and services. Make sure to speak to an agent about your route, though, and get the particulars for it.
