Pullman is a city in Whitman County, in the U.S. state of Washington. It is the largest city by population in the county and is currently home to over 31,600 full-time residents. First established back in 1876, Pullman saw relatively rapid growth, at least in comparison to other cities in the area, and was incorporated as a city in 1886. In 1890, Washington legislators secured funding for a new land-grant college, though not a location; successful lobbying brought what would become Washington State University to Pullman a few years later, and it is for that the city is known today. Washington State University is a major university and a driving force behind the city’s economy even today.

Auto Shipping to Pullman Tips and Tricks
Most auto shipping to Pullman today is done by college students returning (or going for the first time) to the university. As such, many carriers will offer small student auto transport discounts for kids returning to continue to their education, and it actually helps if you’re trying to find a carrier to ship to or from Pullman proper. Carriers typically like to stick close to major cities, of which there are few around Pullman, with perhaps the largest being Spokane, roughly seventy five miles north. This is usually a doable drive for most people, but it can cost a carrier a lot of time and money especially if there is no other freight in Pullman. As such, it may actually be faster and easier to move your pickup or delivery location to Spokane, as it’s easier for carriers to get to and also faster for them to get into and out of.
