texas vehicle shippingThere’s a lot to be said about Texas and Texans in general, but one thing is certain. The state impresses in many ways and we think it deserves the best auto shipping services in Texas that USTrans can provide.

In terms of highways, Texas boasts a highway with one of the highest speed limits. It’s the I30 State Highway with a speed limit of 85 mph. It’s also a toll road, one of many in the state. Altogether, Texas has almost 80,000 miles of state-funded highways. It pays for this extensive and well-maintained network with the help of toll road and bridge charges

The toll system is all digital now which means carriers we hire can deliver smooth and swift vehicle shipping in Texas. In addition, there are no delays or problems crossing state lines to deliver or pick up a vehicle you want to transfer.

Best Prices for Car Transport Services to and from Texas

Thanks to electronic tolling, there are no issues with the tolled roads in Texas, so much so that they barely affect car shipping prices to and from the state. There are, however, some things that affect the overall cost of vehicle shipping in Texas, depending on the time of the year.

A car shipping company in Texas will experience high levels of demand all year round. This is due mainly to the extensive number of used car lots across the state. In addition, as it is one of just a few oil-producing states in the US gas prices tend to be lower than anywhere else. This helps to bolster that already extensive car culture.

High volumes and high market demand increase the price of car shipping in Texas, particularly around metropolitan areas such as Austin, Dallas, Houston, Fort Worth, Amarillo, Corpus Christi, and Amarillo.

If you want to get the lowest prices possible for your auto shipping services in Texas, may we remind you of the following:

  • A less trafficked location for your vehicle pick-up will cost less
  • Vehicles that are running cost less to ship
  • Small vehicles cost less to transport
  • Short distances tend to be more affordable
  • Winter is not the best time to ship a car as the weather can cause delays

How is Car Shipping from Austin, TX Done?

Austin, TX is the second most populated state capital in the US. It also experiences some of the worse traffic congestion, especially in and around the downtown area. If you ever want to move a vehicle to or from Austin, TX, it’s recommended that you try to get it to the outer boroughs of the city first.

This should make the whole auto transport experience more convenient for you and the car shipping company in Texas. It also minimizes the risk of the truck and trailer getting stuck in traffic.

Navigating Traffic When Shipping Vehicles to and from Houston, TX

Houston is the most populated city in Texas, so there is a lot of demand for reliable car transport companies. Houston’s metropolitan area is also home to one of the largest car markets in the country, further increasing demand.

Very much like Austin, but possibly more so, Houston is plagued by long lines of traffic and congestion, even on its six-lane highways. It pays to bear this in mind. 

For the best car shipping experience possible, we recommend you choose a pick-up or delivery location outside the city. Set up your meeting point with the carrier somewhere on private property or in a car park outside of city limits.

However, rest assured that if this is not possible, USTrans.com will still provide a convenient and reliable auto shipping service.

We also provide auto shipping services to Texas. Services from California to Texas are some of our most popular routes. If you want to leave overcrowded LA for a more convenient and less tax-heavy state like Texas, USTrans.com is the service for you.
