Moving to Montana? Ship Your Car with Number 1 Auto Transport
Only two states – Wyoming and Alaska – have a lower population density than Montana. So many folks who stay there, or look to move there, have plenty of space to roam across the countryside. Even those who want to live in a city will find they aren’t that large in Montana – only one, Billings, has a population over 100,000! Needless to say, Montana is a state where folks get to enjoy the open spaces.
- Yellowstone National Park is one of the largest and most-visited national parks in the country, with features including the famed Old Faithful geyser, the Yellow Stone lake – one of the largest high-elevation lakes in the country – and massive free-ranging herds of elk and buffalo. It’s not the only national park in the state though, as Glacier National Park also draws plenty of tourists every year, exploring over 1 million acres of pristine wilderness.
- Thanks to a great standard of living, above-average trust in the state government, and lower state taxes, Montana was ranked #1 overall as far as places that residents want to be living, according to a Gallup poll.
- Just how wide open is Montana? 46 of Montana’s 56 counties are known as “frontier counties,” which means they have an average population of six people or fewer per square mile.
- Big Sky Resort in Big Sky and Whitefish Mountain Resort, outside of Whitefish are two of the top destination ski resorts in America.
- Other outdoor activities include fishing and hunting. Walleye, lake trout, kokanee salmon, northern pike, and small- and largemouth bass are all popular fly-fishing targets. For hunters, Montana is home to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation
- Created in 1904, the Crow Fair held annually near Hardin is the largest Northern Native American gathering. It features rodeo events, horse racing, professional Indian cowboys and cowgirls in action, and the Crow Dance Celebration.
There is plenty of business growth in Montana to give newcomers opportunities left and right. While tourism is a major part of Montana’s economy, there has been massive growth in the technology sector in recent years as more workers can work remotely. Montana is truly a destination for new work.
Enclosed Auto Transport to Montana
Montana has historically weird weather – there have been recorded swings of 100 degrees or greater in a single 24-hour period, in both directions. Located so close to the Canadian border, heavy snowfall is the norm in winter months as well. On the bright side, it makes for great skiing as we noted above. On the not-so-great side, with so much space between cities and towns, getting around in the winter can be difficult. As an interior state, it deals with some of the biggest weather swings in the county. When you’re looking to ship a vehicle across the state from Butte to Great Falls, or to the capital city of Helena, you’ll want to work with a Montana auto transport company that knows how to protect your major investment, whether it is a luxury sedan or a high-end SUV, regardless of the weather. By sending your vehicle via an enclosed auto transport when looking for car transport in Montana, you’ll avoid damage from drastic freezes, rain, hail, snow, wind-blown debris, and more. Having your car shipped to Montana in an enclosed carrier is a smart investment.
The safest way to transport your car to Montana 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 provided by soft-sided carriers, hard-sided carriers offer protection for your car in the unlikely event your car is exposed to possible damage during transportation.
Open Auto Transport to Montana
Thinking about using open auto transport for your Montana car transport needs? Open carriers are the exact same double-decker car carriers the dealerships use. Your vehicle will be secured with state-of-the-art equipment, and it will arrive at its destination within seven days of departure. Open auto transport is a secure and affordable way of shipping your car, protecting your vehicle from road vibration, excess mileage, and more.
Lowboy Carriers to Montana
Such a massive state, plus low-density areas, means when construction crews look outside of their normal working areas for work, they need to undertake some major moves. They may need a crew that can move their dozers, handlers, graders and more from one site to the next, without losing man-hours of their own. That’s why construction teams across the Big Sky State rely on Montana auto transport experts to make sure they stay on schedule and everything gets to the next site safely – they turn to the Montana car 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, as well as 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.
