Across the Map: California Car Shipping
The state of California is the third largest by total area among the 50 states as well as the most populous; it is home to several of the nation’s largest cities including Los Angeles, the second-largest in the United States. California is one of the most important areas in the country in terms of car shipping services, as there are always people looking to ship vehicles into or out of California year-round on a daily basis. Shipping to California from just about anywhere is going to be relatively cheap, as far as car transport prices go, though there are some areas that will be more expensive, primarily if you’re shipping to a city well-off one of California’s many interstates.
For starters, there’s I-5, the main north-south corridor servicing western California. It runs from San Diego to Bellingham, Washington, and runs through most of the major metro areas in the state including Irvine, Los Angeles, Sacramento and Redding. Aside from I-5 there’s also I-10, one of the most highly-traveled east-west routes in the nation. It runs from Los Angeles to Jacksonville, Florida, and is used heavily in the winter months as carriers are trying to avoid the harsh weather in the northern states. I-15 connects Los Angeles to Las Vegas and then runs north into Idaho and Montana, allowing carriers access to more remote locations (for those that service them, anyway). Then there’s I-40, which runs from its spur off I-15 east of L.A. all the way to the east coast, servicing much of the middle sections of the state like northern Texas and Oklahoma City. The sheer number of available routes into or out of California gives carriers many options, which in turns allows them to run the best routes at the lowest possible rates to help you save money.
