The distance your car has to travel has the biggest impact on the price, but that’s not all that factors into the shipping cost.

Route: Though two routes may be a similar distance, they could have different costs. A car shipment from South Dakota to Montana has a shorter distance than Idaho to Washington, but it can be more expensive because of the complexity of the travel route.

Time of Year: The time of year may impact the price. Summer is the busy season, which can mean premium prices. Winter is the off-peak season with more availability, but weather considerations can affect the routes and the prices.

Scheduling: Last-minute booking and strict delivery dates can command high prices. Book as early as you can to get more competitive rates. More flexibility in your shipping date can help you get better deals.

Make and Model: The weight of your car affects the shipping price, so the make and model of your car and the type of transport you choose also factor into the price. Generally, lighter SUVs and cars are cheaper to ship than big trucks and SUVs. An oversized vehicle, such as an RV, may be more because of weight and the special equipment needed to ship safely.

Type of Transport: The type of transport you choose can affect the shipping price. Open-air trailers haul more vehicles, giving you a lower unit price. However, if you have a high-value vehicle, enclosed trailer shipping offers more protection at a higher cost.

Your car’s travel distance has the biggest effect on the shipping time, but there are other factors to consider.

Route: There are differences in the routes between different locations that can make one faster than the other. For example, cars shipped between two cities may take longer than a route that’s mostly highway due to differences in traffic patterns.

Time of Year: Summer is the busy season for car shipping and travel, so it may be more difficult to get your desired ship dates and traffic patterns can affect your delivery timeframe. Winter has more availability, but weather can cause delays that affect your shipment. Montana has the risk of inclement weather in all seasons, including snowstorms, wildfires, and earthquakes. Generally, early fall is the best time to ship because of mild weather and lower demand.

Transport Type: Open-air transport is more available, so it’s often faster than enclosed trailer transport. Fewer companies offer enclosed trailer shipping as a premium service, so it could take longer. It may be more difficult to secure your preferred ship dates as well. offers the fastest shipping because it’s more widely available.

What’s the best way to ship your car to or from Montana?

If you want your car to arrive at its destination safely, professional auto transport companies are the best choice. With professionally trained drivers, enhanced safety practices, and streamlined pickup and delivery processes – plus insurance, bonding, and licensing – there’s no better way to ship your vehicle safely and securely.

Some people opt to drive their car themselves, but it may not be faster or cheaper. You have to account for travel costs like hotel stays, food, and gas, and you’re risking yourself and your car on a long-distance drive. You’re also adding miles and wear and tear on your vehicle.

You can hire someone to drive your car, which saves you time and may be cheaper than hiring a professional shipper. However, you will need to pay them for the service and expenses, including gas for your car. There’s also a risk of an accident or damage on the way with just your regular auto insurance coverage.

Shipping your car by train is an affordable choice if you’re not worried about how long it will take. Trains are cheap because they haul a lot of cars at once and travel across the country quickly, but the downside is that you may need to wait extra days or weeks to get your car. Not all cars travel to the same destination, so trains make stops to load and unload vehicles which adds time to the trip.

What is the most affordable way to ship a car from Montana?

If you’re looking to save on your auto shipment, you can reduce your shipping costs by being as flexible as possible with your shipping dates and choosing open-air trailer shipping. In addition, book as early as you can to take advantage of deals during slower periods.

Avoid the temptation to take the lowest quote you’re offered. It’s common for inexperienced shippers to use this tactic to attract customers, but you can’t be sure your car will be handled properly. There are shipping scams that may use low rates for shipping, only to tack on charges upon delivery.
