New Hampshire got its name in 1630 from the English county that Captain John Mason hailed, Hampshire, which is nearSouthampton, England. Remember John Lennon’s ballad …
“Standing in the dock at Southampton,
Trying to get to Holland or France.
The man in the mac said, ‘You’ve got to turn back’.
You know they didn’t even give us a chance.”
Thanks John – very catchy tune and a stones throw from New Hampshire’s namesake, Hampshire. Of course the Algonquian Indians who inhabited the state for hundreds of years prior, undoubtedly had another and probably cooler name for New Hampshire, but we will never know. The Indians probably got around northern New Hampshire quicker and easier than most auto transport carriers, because it can be tough in certain regions.

The Sobering News About Car Shipping In New Hampshire
The northern half of New Hampshire reaching up from Lebanon to the Canadian border is extremely difficult to ship cars in a timely fashion. Interstates I-89 and I-93 fork at Concord and soon thereafter in both directions, north and northwest, things get a little dicey in the auto transport world. The farther north you go the harder it gets to ship quick. Throw in some winter bad weather and the customer is really out of luck. It is only moderately better southwest of I-89 to the Vermont and Massachusetts borders. We like to be upfront about that logistical problems so that customers may plan accordingly. Our vehicle shipping quotes calculator attempts to add a little extra to lure a driver off the major interstates to either fetch a car or deliver one. The rates are higher and that is why. Not trying to be mean, just trying to get it done is all.
