Car Transport to Grand Forks, North Dakota
Grand Forks is a city in, as well as the county seat of, Grand Forks County, in the U.S. state of North Dakota. The city is currently home to a population of over 52,800 residents, making it the third-largest city in North Dakota by population. Though the area that became Grand Forks was settled by French fur traders during the early 19th century, it would not see any substantial growth until the city was founded in 1870 and the subsequent construction of railroads through the area in the 1880’s and 90’s. Grand Forks was best known, for a number of years, for being an agricultural powerhouse in the area, but economic diversity and a transition away from farming and embracing a mixed, market-driven economy has helped Grand Forks grow in both scope and size, and today it is one of the more popular car transport locations in North Dakota.
Let’s be frank – North Dakota is one of the least-popular vehicle shipping locations in the United States today, rivaled by only Maine and maybe Wyoming. Auto shippers want to run routes to and from major cities in states with more than one or two big cities. North Dakota does not have big cities; well, it does, but they’re nothing compared to cities like Los Angeles or New York, and are a far cry from even medium-sized cities like Portland, Oregon or Overland Park, Kansas, mostly due to the lack of population. Car transporters can’t make as much money running routes to and from smaller cities and towns unless they sit close to a big city. Grand Forks does not.
Ease of access is another big part of your auto transport prices, and car transport to Grand Forks is accomplished primarily by getting to and from the city via Interstate 29. I-29 is the only north-south interstate to service North Dakota, and it sits along the eastern border, which does not help. Grand Forks being on the border does help your prices and services a bit, as Grand Forks is closer to cities like Minneapolis than a city like Minot, which sits in the middle of nowhere in North Dakota. On the whole, expect higher prices to and from Grand Forks and other cities in North Dakota due to its rural nature, low population and lack of major highways or roadways.
