Car Transport to Minot, North Dakota
Minot is a city located in as well as the county seat of Ward County, in the U.S. state of North Dakota. It is currently home to a population of over 47,900 residents and is the anchor of the Minot, North Dakota Micropolitan Statistical Area, which is home to over 73,100 residents. The city was first established back in 1886 and quickly grew into a major trading center in the region, a fact that has held up through the 20th century and into the 21st. Minot, though, is perhaps best known for being the home of Minot Air Force Base, though it actually sits about 15 miles north of the city. The air force base is a major economic boon to the city and employs a number of permanent residents.
Car transport to Minot, though, is usually not all that easy to find and book because of the fact that it’s relatively isolated. Whereas most of the largest cities in states across the country are home to hundreds of thousands of people, Minot is home to less than 50,000 – it’s the fourth-largest city in North Dakota, no less. But car carriers don’t like to run routes into or out of small areas, especially ones that are located in the Dakotas, which are knowing for being home to few people and lots of stretches of nothing. This usually results in lower profits for carriers, so they have to charge more for customers shipping to or from cities in North Dakota, and even more for people moving into or out of small areas.
Of course, Minot does see a small increase in transportation traffic due to Minot Air Force Base. Many military members that are assigned to the base request car transport to Minot because it’s the easiest way to get their family vehicles there. This helps the cause, but the city doesn’t sit along any major interstates which usually means that carriers are going to have to go off the beaten path to get there. This results in higher prices – few people are actually shipping to Minot on a daily basis, so finding a carrier is usually going to take a bit longer, and with no major interstates in the area it will likely take a bit longer to actually get it there and also cost a bit more.
