If you’re looking for a state with room to stretch out, you won’t find much more accommodating than North Dakota. With only 760,000 residents spread over 70,700 square miles of territory, the state is ranked 47th for density. On top of that, over half of the residents live in one of the eight most populated cities in the state. If you want space to breathe, you’ve got it.
This doesn’t mean North Dakota is barren or uncivilized, though. North Dakota features plenty of agriculture, growing tech sectors, and developing urban areas offering art and culture. There’s plenty to make North Dakota a popular destination for folks looking to relocate and plenty of different cities to make it worth relocating inside the state from time to time.
- North Dakota historically has one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country. Although it varies from month to month, North Dakota almost always has one of the five lowest unemployment rates of any state, regularly below 3.0% – it has never gone above 6.2%, something that only one other state, South Dakota, can brag about. So if you want employment, you should be able to find it.
- Industrial-scale farming is a big part of North Dakota’s economy. Focused around cereal grains – the state accounts for 36% of the entire U.S. barley crop and 58% of the country’s durum wheat crops – it is ninth in the nation’s overall value of all crops. This also includes the majority of canola and flaxseed produced in the country.
- The North Dakota oil boom brought prosperity to the Williston, Tioga, and Minot communities thanks to the Bakken Formation. The state is one of the largest oil-producing states in the U.S., peaking at second place in 2012. With large rural expanses and regular winds, rarely dropping below 10 miles per hour, North Dakota is also a leader in “green” energy generation as host to wind farms. This allows North Dakota to export energy to nearby states and makes the energy sector one of the state’s leading employers.
- Ranked by U.S. News and World Reports as the 15th-best state in the country, North Dakota scored exceptionally high regarding infrastructure and fiscal stability. Its highest ranking came in Opportunity – the state ranked fourth in the country, trailing only New Hampshire, Minnesota, and Iowa.
- Once you’re done working the oilfields and making the most of the opportunities provided, you’ll get to enjoy retirement – and thanks to a great mix of outdoor pursuits such as fishing, and plenty of museums, galleries, and art scenes in the urban areas, you’ll have plenty to keep busy doing. With an affordable cost of living and high marks for healthcare, North Dakota ranks 10th on Moneywise’s Best States for Retirement list.
- Interested in being part of some pure Scandimonium? Norsk Hostfest in Minot is North America’s largest Scandinavian festival, held the last week in September into the first week of October. Learn Scandinavian skills, including rosemaling, wood carving, jewelry design, and more – you can even learn ancient Viking navigation methods! Don’t miss the traditional Scandinavian fare on offer, from Norwegian lapskaus to Icelandic baked cod loin dinner, including dishes from chefs who journey in from their home countries just for the occasion!
- When you have plenty of open space, what better to fill it than with oversized animals? North Dakota sure likes big beefers, claiming to have the largest buffalo in the world in Jamestown and the largest statue of a Holstein cow in the world, the 38-foot Salem Sue in New Salem.
It’s hard to argue with everything North Dakota brings to the table. Great job opportunities, plenty of culture waiting to be discovered, and the choice of urban living or blue-sky rural life, all in one state.
Enclosed Auto Transport to North Dakota
Being far inland and removed from large water bodies, North Dakota can get pretty frigid in the winter. Regarding the coldest major cities in the United States, three of the top five – Grand Forks, Bismarck, and Fargo – are in North Dakota. Protecting vehicles in transit is extremely important because you’ve already made that investment. Working with an auto transport team that knows how to protect your vehicle from vicious winter weather is crucial. When you opt to send your vehicle via enclosed auto transport, you’ll avoid damage from wind-blown debris, damaging storms, sub-zero temperatures, and more. Having your car shipped to North Dakota in an enclosed carrier is a wise investment for your investment.
The safest way to transport your car to North Dakota is within an enclosed auto transport. There are two options for shipping your car via enclosed auto transport:
- Soft-Sided Enclosed Auto Transport – The heavy canvas covering the carriers protects your car from wind-blown debris, rain, sleet, snow, and other elements.
- Hard-Sided Enclosed Auto Transport – In addition to the advantages of soft-sided carriers, hard-sided carriers offer protection for your car in the unlikely event your car is exposed to possible damage during transportation.

Lowboy Carriers to North Dakota
Both the agriculture and energy sectors are heavily dependent on capital investment, so construction is flourishing in North Dakota. This means that the construction crews who win these jobs need to be fast and agile, moving from one job site to the next while reducing downtime. Heavy equipment such as graders, compact excavators, pile drivers, and pavers can be sent along to the next site while skilled tradespeople finish the work on a current site. When that happens, crews don’t want to send their team to make a move – they want them to continue working on the current job. That’s why many North Dakota construction teams rely on a heavy equipment transport company for a helping hand. When construction teams want everything to get to the job site safely – they turn to the North Dakota equipment transport experts and the lowboy teams at Number 1 Auto Transport.
Transporting heavy construction equipment is a serious business. Our veteran lowboy carrier drivers are trained to handle oversized loads and high gross tonnage. Number 1 Auto’s drivers are skilled in moving heavy equipment in and out of job sites and navigating busy highways with unique loads.
