Advantages of vehicle relocation services

Advantages of vehicle relocation services

As one of the most expensive things people own, vehicles usually get treated with a lot of care. Most auto-related decisions are well thought-over. That is why it is perfectly normal to feel uncertain when it comes to using a car-related service. After all, you want to leave your car in good hands.  And what is the best way to counter uncertainty? Information!

In this post, we are going to look over one of the most popular ways to relocate a vehicle – car shipping services. We will list out its advantages in a clear manner, so you can decide whether it fits your needs!

A quick introduction to vehicle relocation services

Understanding vehicle relocation services is key to making the right decision. Fortunately, most people have some general idea about car shipping, even if they don’t realize it.

You have probably noticed an auto transport carrier at some point. Those are usually the open double-decker trucks that carry several cars. They are quite the common sight on the interstate and make up the majority of car carriers in the country.

While car shipping services can vary, all come down to shipping your car on one such carrier. If you want to learn more about your carrier options, you can explore our open vs enclosed auto transport guide. Let’s see now what makes car shipping such a popular service!

Auto transport saves you time

One of the major reasons for the convenience of auto transport is its time-saving quality.  Driving a car across the state, or maybe even across the country, can eat up quite the chunk off your calendar. To save yourself that trouble, you can use car shipping services.

The good thing about auto transport is that your involvement is minimal. Everything you need to do is to prepare your car for shipping, hand it over on the pick-up date and receive it on the drop-off date. That way you will not have to waste days or a week on the road. And to be fair, driving for such a long time is not the best experience. This leads us to the next benefit!

Shipping your car is more convenient when moving

If you are about to have a long-distance move, for instance, from Michigan to Texas, it seems reasonable to drive your way there. Yet many who have tried would tell you that it is a draining experience. It may be fine for a couple-day trip, but afterward, it will become one giant chore.

The worst part is that when you arrive, you will have to deal with the other aspects of your move. How will that feel after days spent on the road? In the end, car shipping offers you a level of convenience that allows you to keep your strength for the actual relocation.

No unnecessary wear and tear on your vehicle

The only alternative to auto transport is driving your car to the desired location. Whether you are the one doing it, or you hire a professional, it does not matter. In either case, the car will have to go through a lot of unnecessary stress. Sadly, many people do not consider the wear and tear that will cause.

Let us take, for example, shipping a car from Maine to Florida. If you decide to drive instead, you are looking at more than 1,500 miles on the engine in a single trip. This may not sound like it would strain the motor that much, but it still wears it out. Actually, when we factor that in, it leads us exactly to the next shipping advantage!

Vehicle relocation services often come out cheaper

People like to take things at face value. Because of that, when they do a quick comparison, car shipping may not seem the cheaper choice. After all, if you drive the car yourself, you will only have to pay for gas, right? Sadly, no!

On the one hand, you pay with your time, which we have already mentioned. Depending on the distance you may also have to factor in motel costs, eating on the road, and so on. On the other hand, you are using up the car in a drastic way. It may not become immediately apparent, but that will end up costing you.

You have fewer things to worry about

Finally, when it comes to peace of mind, auto transport always comes on top. You do not have to worry about damaging the car, figuring out routes, or anything else related to driving. Not to mention that you will avoid any breakdowns on the road altogether.

It is also the perfect solution if you (or your family) have a couple of cars that need transporting. You can just ship them together without a problem. There will be no need to devise a way to drive them all or anything like that. All in all, car shipping services just make the process a whole lot simpler!

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.

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.
