Iowa, a Midwestern U.S. state, sits between the Missouri and Mississippi rivers. It’s known for its landscape of rolling plains and cornfields. Landmarks in the capital, Des Moines, include the gold-domed, 19th-century State Capitol Building, Pappajohn Sculpture Park and the Des Moines Art Center, noted for its contemporary collections. The city of Cedar Rapids’ Museum of Art has paintings by native Iowan Grant Wood. There are six states that border Iowa, those being Minnesota from the north, Wisconsin and Illinois from the east, Missouri to the south, and Nebraska and South Dakota to the west. Auto transport to and from Iowa is a daily routine at Nationwide United. From the thousands vehicles we’ve shipped, many route through “The Hawkeye State”. We transit on any of the highways that cover the state as well as the spiderweb of freeways that criss-cross the metropolitan areas of Iowa on a weekly basis.
How much does it cost to transport a car to or from Iowa?
Several factors can impact the cost of shipping a car, including the distance of the shipment, the method of transportation, and the time of year. Other factors that influence the cost include:
Factor 1: Distance of Shipment
The distance of the shipment is one of the most significant factors that will determine the cost of car shipping. Longer distances will typically cost more than shorter ones. The farther the distance, the more fuel and labor will be required, and the higher the cost will be.
Factor 2: Type of Vehicle
The type of vehicle you’re shipping will also affect the cost. Larger vehicles, such as SUVs and trucks, will cost more to ship than smaller cars. This is because they take up more space on a transport truck, and require more fuel and labor to move.
Factor 3: Shipping Method
The shipping method you choose will also affect the cost of car shipping. Two methods for shipping a car are open transport and enclosed transport. Open transport, where the vehicle is shipped on an open trailer with other vehicles, is the most affordable option. Enclosed transport, where the vehicle is shipped in a closed container, is more expensive but offers greater protection for the vehicle.
Factor 4: Seasonality
The season of the year can also affect the cost of car shipping. During the peak summer months, demand for car shipping is typically higher which can drive up prices. On the other hand, during the off-season, there may be less demand and therefore lower prices. Additionally, inclement weather during certain seasons, such as heavy snow during winter, can cause delays and increase costs.

Tips for Vehicle Transport in Iowa
If you have plans to transport your vehicle when you relocate or visit Iowa, here are few things to keep in mind.
- Book as far ahead as possible: The more in advance you can book your transport, the better chance you will have of accommodating moving schedule. Moreover, the more lead time you have in book car shipping, the more time you have to prepare other arrangements associated with your move.
- Determine the type of service you’ll need: One of the main decisions you’ll make when shipping a vehicle to Iowa is open or enclosed transport. 80% of Iowa vehicle transport are done with open carriers while enclosed trailers are the preferred option for high end, luxury vehicles.
- Prepare your car or automobiles for transport: Notably if your vehicle is coming cross-country, check breaks, including emergency breaks, battery, ignition, tires and fluids. Minor leaks can cause major problems, especially if vehicle is travelling hundreds of miles.
