Oregon isn’t just a different state, it’s a different state of mind. Highlighted in the sketch show Portlandia, the quirkiness of the city isn’t exclusive, it’s part of the fabric of the state as a whole. Maybe some of this stems from the diversity of the state – from oceanfront cliffs, to compressed urban cities, to sprawling woodlands and nature reserves. It’s a large state – ninth largest in the country – yet has a low population, allowing folks to spread out and have space if they want it, or be part of a close city community if that’s more their speed.
- Is Springfield, Oregon, the home of Homer? Oregon native and Simpsons creator Matt Groening confirmed that the Simpsons’ home town is named after the town in Oregon, but it isn’t located there. You can visit his native Portland and see streets that influenced locations in the show, and even the names of the characters – Flanders. Kearney, and Lovejoy are all street names there. Or swing by the real Evergreen Terrace, where Groening himself grew up!
- If you are concerned about your environmental impact, Oregon might be the best place for you to live. S. News and World Report ranked it first in the country in terms of infrastructure, which takes into account public transit, commute times, road quality, reliability of power grids, use of renewable energy, and more.
- Oregon also ranked fifth overall in S. News and World Report for their economy, including second overall for growth, which covers population swing towards the younger generation as well as GDP growth rate. This is thanks to companies like Intel, Harry and David, and Adidas having large workforces in the state – Intel alone employs almost 19,000 Oregonians, most at their Hillsboro campus.
- You can’t talk about business in Oregon without talking about Nike. Headquartered just outside Portland, in Beaverton, it’s the world’s largest supplier of athletic shoes and apparel. Founded by University of Oregon grad Phil Knight, it has become an inescapable brand across the world. Knight has certainly given back – according to one article, he has gifted over $2 billion of profits over the years, including nearly $1.5 billion to the University of Oregon and Oregon Health and Sciences University.
- Are you a locavore, concerned about the impact of your dining habits on the local ecosystem? Oregon has received good marks over the years for efforts in localizing food and eliminating barriers. The Union of Concerned Scientists rated them highly on their 50-State Food System Scorecard, noting in particular an excellent overall infrastructure, extremely low social disparities and obstacles towards obtaining quality food, and good diet and health outcomes.
- Oregonians love their mushrooms. Mushroom hunting is an incredibly popular activity in Oregon, to the extent that it isn’t just home to a mushroom festival – it’s home to three! The Mount Pisgah Arboretum Mushroom Festival, the Yachats Village Mushroom Fest, and the Escatada Festival of the Fungus all celebrate wild mushrooms.
- In fact, Oregonians just like being outside in general. It has one of the highest per capita populations of bicyclists, is home to Mount Hood – often considered the second-most-climbed mountain in the world – and offers world-class views and whitewater rafting through the 7993-foot-deep Hells Canyon, the deepest river-cut canyon in the country. For something less pulse-pounding, check out Multnomah Falls, the second-tallest year-round waterfall in the country.
- Oregon also loves craft beer. At one point, it had the most craft breweries in the U.S., as well as the most craft breweries per capita. It still ranks highly though – with 8 breweries per 100,000 drinking-age adults, the state ranks fifth in the country.
Enclosed Auto Transport to Oregon
With a generally mild climate – the city of Bend often registers 300 or more sunny days per year – drivers and automobile shippers throughout Oregon don’t often have much to worry about as far as the weather goes. Of course, there will always be the chance of thunderstorms rolling through, and the sea salt air along the coast can provide concerns for vehicles finishes. When you opt to send your vehicle via an enclosed auto transport when looking for car transport in Oregon, you’ll avoid damage from wind-blown debris in storms, damaging sea salt mist, and other curveballs the weather throws out there. Having your car shipped to Oregon in an enclosed carrier is a smart investment for your investment.
The safest way to transport your car to Oregon 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 Oregon
Thinking about using open auto transport for your Oregon 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 Oregon
With continued development across the Silicon Forest – Oregon’s answer to Silicon Valley, and home to a cluster of high-tech companies including Xerox, Tektronix, Intel, Pixelworks and more – there are always construction projects popping up. Whether working in this Beaverton and Hillsboro region, or further west to Bend or down south to Medford, Oregon construction crews often look for help moving equipment such as dozers, telehandlers, excavators and more. It’s especially important that crews keep their skilled hands working, instead of pulling them away from their specialties to move equipment. That’s why construction teams across the Sooner State rely on Oregon auto transport experts to make sure they stay on schedule and everything gets to the next site safely – they turn to the Oregon 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.
