Reasons to Ship your car to Oregon Infographic

  1. You got a job!

    First of all, congratulations! While this new position is a wonderful life change, it can also bring a lot of stress and hassle. You now have to figure out how to get you, your family, your belongings, and your car to your new home. Using National Dispatch will allow you to fly to your new location, and start your job immediately without worrying about what to do with your car or having to drive to your destination.

  2. You are entering into a car show.

    We understand that you love your classic vehicle, but driving it thousands of miles to the car show is not ideal. Putting this much wear and tear on a classic car can be detrimental to the car. It adds miles and can cause a higher risk of needing repairs, which are quite expensive for a classic. Our transport options are a great way to get your beauty to its destination in tip top shape.

  3. You are a college student.

    We all know that being stranded on campus without personal transportation can be rough. For parents, if you live out of state it can be hard to want your child to drive alone to their destination. National Dispatch can help! By shipping your child’s car you no longer have to worry about them driving alone and wondering if they have access to the grocery store when they arrive at school.

  4. You are taking a long vacation.

    It is no secret that it is nice to explore the destination that you have spent time and money traveling to. However, for those who are on a long vacation, renting a car does not make sense. Rental companies will often add hidden fees or charge more if you rent at the airport or if you are a young driver. Shipping your car with us will provide a hassle-free way to explore the state from the comfort of your own vehicle. Learn more about shipping a car for vacation.

Visiting And Moving To Oregon

Regardless of if you are in Oregon for a short time or a lifetime there are several different attractions and sights that you will want to add to your bucket list. Below, you will find a list of a few things to see and places to go.

Leprechaun Colony

Rumor has it that Portland is the only place west of Ireland to be home to a colony of leprechauns. These leprechauns are alleged to live in Mills End Park, built in 1948 by Dick Fagan, and are invisible to the human eye. The park is just two square feet and was originally built to hold a light post, but the lamp was never installed. Fagan was determined to not let the hole go to waste and began to plant flowers and that is when the leprechauns came. This park is located in Portland, Oregon.

Crater Lake

Crater lake is located in south central Oregon and is close to 2,000 feet deep, making it the deepest lake in the United States. It was created and named when a volcano collapsed around 7,700 years ago. The lake contains two islands: Wizard Island and Phantom Ship. The waters are crystal-blue and draw the attention from visitors from around the world. When people visit, they look forward to seeing the pumice desert and what looks like a castle made out of pumice stone. Tourists also love to admire the needle-like rock formations that once acted as vents for the steam and gas that used to swirl below the canyon surface.

Mushrooms are a big deal in Oregon. Oregon is home to the biggest mushroom on Earth which spans 2.4 miles wide and is located in the Blue Mountains. This honey fungus is thought to be the largest living organism on the planet. Not only is this one particular mushroom significant, but so are all other mushrooms. Mushroom-picking is one of the more popular pastimes for Oregonians. The state even holds its own mushroom festival every year in Estacada where people hunt for, taste, and create art projects about mushrooms.

Neahkahnie Mountain

Located on the Oregon coast, this mountain provides spectacular views. It is the tallest natural formation along the coast measuring in at about 1,600 feet tall. Legend has it that this mountain contains buried treasure left by pirates several hundred years ago. Pirates used this mountain as a natural landmark that could be seen despite Oregon’s rain and fog, so why not leave some treasure behind for safe keeping. This story has been passed down through many generations, and some have claimed to discover actual clues, but the treasure has yet to be found. This mountain range can be found near the city of Manzanita.
