5 Ways to ship your car safely

5 Ways to ship your car safely

Safety is always our top concern.  For more than a decade now, we have been shipping cars and providing excellent service to thousands of customers. Based on the vehicle you need to ship, the distance and your personal preferences we offer several types of services to ship a car safely.

Open auto transport

Open car shipping carrier is suitable for all vehicle makes and models. This is the most popular mode of transportation, and also the most economical. Whether you need to ship your daily commuter vehicle or a luxury automobile, open carriers are always easy and fast to schedule.

The truck driver loads your vehicle onto a single or double-deck trailer and transports your car from the origin to the final destination. Open car transportation is the standard safe and reliable method for shipping vehicles.

The open car shipping is often the fastest way to transport a car. Open carriers make up nearly 90% of the total U.S. fleet and are therefore readily available. For example, scheduling an open car transporter is always faster than booking enclosed.

Enclosed car transport

This is a premium service for cars of higher value. The main reason to choose an enclosed car transport over an open one is more protection. Enclosed car transport fully protects the vehicle from road and weather elements. Cars are not exposed to dust, debris and stormy weather conditions.

This is the type of protection that every high-end car owner prefers. If you are shipping a car with thousands of dollars in paint, closed car shipping is the best solution. Many covered haulers highlight their white-glove service by actually loading and unloading all automobiles while wearing white gloves.

Most enclosed car carriers are equipped with a hydraulic lift gate to keep the vehicle leveled during loading and unloading. Moreover, the driver has experience handling high-end, classic, sports and antique automobiles.

Expedited Car Shipping

Expedited car shipping or express delivery is when a customer needs a car to be delivered as quickly as possible. This could mean an exact date or a specific date. In the auto transportation industry, moving multiple vehicles at once is always the most efficient option, but not always the fastest.

Shipping to and from major cities makes it easier to find a carrier that can pick up your vehicle faster. A metropolitan area means more trucks are available on your particular route. Our logistics experts will work with you to find the most convenient location and carrier for your time frame.

This is also a premium service and it usually costs more. The amount you are willing to pay determines the pickup and delivery time. In order for the truck driver to change the schedule and deviate from his route to pick up and deliver your vehicle first, you have to pay extra.

Door-to-door delivery

Delivery for private customer is always door to door, unless otherwise requested. With this service, we provide security for all customers. You do not have to worry about driving long distances to some terminal. Door-to-door delivery is the most convenient way for any customer and any vehicle, especially if it is non-operable car. The carrier will pick up your vehicle at the address you choose and deliver to an address you choose. This means as close to your door as safely and legally possible.

Top Load

Top load service is when you request your vehicle to be loaded on the upper deck of the car carrier. Whether that is open carrier or enclosed, the option to loaded on the top deck is always available, unless all the spots have already been booked. This service also provides an extra safety for your automobile. The upper means you will not have to worry about any possible leaks from other vehicles or debris from the road.

Looking for a logistics company, to ship my car, from California to Illinois,my first search, then Corsia showed up, skeptical. Call and a very friendly secretary: Elena. She guided me through, I scheduled and as she explained, all when smooth as scheduled Very happy I did the right choice. I'll recommend this great Company to anyone that is thinking to relocate a vehicle. Thanks Corsia logistics for your honesty and professionalism!

Corsia was highly recommended by a friend in the automobile industry. We needed to transport a cargo van from Seattle to Florida. We contacted Corsia who quickly arranged transport within just a few days. Communication was outstanding! Just a few email confirmations and we were all set. Mike was great and arrived right on time and delivered to Florida on schedule. Tip-avoid the hornets nest of auto brokers on line and just contact Corsia for a truly great experience!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

Corsia rep (Elena) was very proactive. Helped ship a car from CA to GA. She checked in with me via email quote and several phone calls to find me the best possible quote for the fastest available service. After several communications, Corsia was able to schedule a vehicle pickup the next day. The driver communicated well, and the vehicle arrived in final destination faster than we expected in perfect condition. I highly recommend using Corsia's reliable, efficient service.

Thanks, Corsia! Pickup was so clean, efficient, and wonderful -- my only recommendation is to make sure you schedule it during the day so you can fully review the car in the daylight. Drop off was equally wonderful, and the whole trip went down without a hitch (pun intended!). Seriously, Corsia delivered my Jeep from CT to California with no issues or bumps in the road!

Truly positive experience

Corsia Memphis to LA, mid-size SUV. I looked at 4 different companies amd Corsia was the most responsive of them. While being responsive, they were not unduly aggressive: when I indicated that I need to wait a month before making a decision they stopped contacting me and only came back with a reminder when I really needed it. Once I decided to engage Corsia they found me a transport within two days and the car was delivered (from Memphis to LA) in another two days. I had a truly positive experience.

Working with Corsia Logistics was a great experience. Working with Corsia Logistics was wonderful. They were able to find a driver right away to transport our car. They were in constant communication as to when the car was getting picked up and dropped off. The driver also communicated with me as to when he would arrive. I would highly recommend Corsia Logistics.

Excellent Organization

Corsia was an excellent company to work with while I transferred my car across the US. A friend of mine suggested I use them as they had been very organized and trustworthy with her own car. I researched a few different place but decided to go with Corsia and I'm so glad I did! Any questions I had throughout the process they answered quickly and clearly. I would definitely use them again in the future and recommend them for others to use.
