A Brief History of Montana
- The state of Montana was first organized as a territory; however, many Native American tribes called the area home, and when white settlers began arriving in the mid-19th century it led to many clashes between settlers and the local natives. Opened to homesteading in 1862, Montana initially saw little growth in population; the amount of land granted to homesteaders was not enough to sustain a family in Montana’s harsher, more arid climate, and while people eventually did settle there its population numbers are even today quite low. The state has long been dependent on ranching and farming, with cattle and other livestock being major parts of the state’s economy. Montana is home to several national parks, which does help the state generate revenue via tourism.
What to Expect when Shipping to or from Montana
- Transporting a vehicle to or from Montana is rarely cheap or easy. If you take a look at the map provided below, you’ll see that much of Montana is sparsely populated, and there are very few interstates that run through Montana proper. One of the biggest drawbacks of Montana, when it comes to auto transport anyway, is the lack of true major metro areas. Billings and Bozeman and Missoula are small-fry compared to cities like Chicago or Los Angeles, and it really doesn’t help that the other major cities that the interstate links those cities to aren’t that big either. What this translates to is that few people are moving into or out of Montana and few carriers are running routes in or out of Montana. There are certainly carriers that will run into or out of Montana, as there are people that move to and from the state and ship cars to and from the state, but typically they will only run along I-90 or I-94, in or out of the largest cities in Montana.
