In addition to having a smaller and more spread out population than the other sparsely populated states in this area, South Dakota is also more out of the way. Only Wyoming is comparable in terms of how hard it is to ship a car. The largest city, Sioux Falls, only has a metropolitan population of about 250,000 and is in the far east which doesn’t help the rest of the state much. Major auto transport routes that cross the state are northwest to Chicago, the northeast, and to Florida. All of these routes run along interstate 90 so if you don’t live on the interstate you will have trouble with your shipment. You will have to be very patient to get a car moved from here.
