About the State Of Montana
Montana is the fourth largest state located in the northwestern United States. There are no big cities or crowded places in the state. Only about 1,000,000 people live here, and in terms of low population density, the state is second only to the deserts of Alaska and Wyoming. The state of Montana borders Canada and has a unique natural landscape. The Rocky Mountains and the Great Plains, the picturesque Missouri Bluffs, lakes and glaciers - all this is in the national parks of Montana.
Major routes and areas in MT
Despite the fact that Montana is a large state, there are only a few destinations popular among car carriers - these are the major cities of Billings, Bozeman, Butte and Missoula. The difficulty of delivering cars to Montana lies in the large distance of cities from each other within it, the climatic conditions and the countryside.
For car carriers, the route usually passes through I-90 and I-15 highways. Both of these highways exit at Butte city. Shipping along these routes will be cheaper compared to outlying cities in this state. If your car is delivered or picked up along these routes, then transit will be faster and the price will be low.
Most cities in Montana are far from major highways and are located on rural roads. Therefore, if you need your car to be transported to some distant places (for example, Kalispell, Great Falls, Lewistown, Jordan, Malta etc.), the delivery cost will be much more expensive, because these cities are far from major highways.

Shipping Details for Montana
Three major major highways run through Montana, connecting it with other states. I-90 and I-94 which run east-west, and I-15 is the main north-south route.
I-90 - starts in Seattle, Washington, and passes through the northern states to the east, passes through the cities of Missoula and Billings, and then heads southeast to South Dakota, then to Iowa, and so on. I-90 is one of the most popular east-west interstates, especially in the northern regions of the United States.
Another major interstate highway, I-15 runs north-south, starting at the Canadian border and heading through Helena, the state capital, then to Idaho, Utah, Nevada, and ending in California. I-15 is commonly used by carriers operating from Los Angeles to Vegas.
The price for delivery of cars to the cities located along these highways will be much lower. You also need to consider the time of year. During the spring and summer, when the weather is nice, transporting a car to or from Montana via I-90 is cheaper and easier. During the winter, prices increase dramatically as fewer people ship cars and the Interstate has a lot of snow along its route.
