Shipping a Car from Florida to New Jersey
How much does it cost to ship a car from Florida to New Jersey?
Vehicle make and model, and distance, set the base price. Then the choice of auto carrier type enters the equation. Exact location also matter. However, the deciding factor is current supply and demand on this route.
What types of services does an auto transport company offer?
Customers can choice based on the type of carrier and on time frame of delivery. Corsia Logistics provides the following car shipping services:
- by carrier type: open and enclosed trailer
- by time frame: standard and expedited delivery
Your choice of carrier should really be influenced by the type of vehicle you are shipping. Standard everyday sedans usually go onto an open-air trailer. If you need to ship a high-end vehicle you should choose enclosed trailer. Enclosed auto transport offers complete protection from weather and road elements.
A standard car shipping service usually means that a carrier will pick up your vehicle within one to few days. However, please keep in mind that all dates and times are only estimates. Expedited delivery could guarantee that your car is picked up or delivered on or by a specified date and time.
What documents do I need when shipping a car?
Domestic transport is easy and simple. You or someone on your behalf needs to release the vehicle to the carrier at pick-up. The person at pick-up will also need to sign a Bill of Lading (BOL). The BOL is not only a receipt but also an inspection report.
When the carrier inspects the car you need to check for any preexisting damages. Mark them down before you sign the inspection report. Never sign a blank or incomplete document and don’t forget to get your copy before the driver leaves the site.
What are my options when shipping a car from Florida to New Jersey?
Driving is great if you have free time, and enjoy being behind the wheel for a couple of days. However, when the distance is greater than 200 miles, shipping the car is recommended instead.
Shipping saves you time and energy. It also spares your car unnecessary wear and tear. Simply choose the type of transport, choose your dates and prepare your vehicle. We schedule the truck and then it takes 3 to 5 days to deliver the car to your destination.
Away, away from the Sunshine State
Every year, come March, we see droves of people making their way to Florida. Most of them are snowbirds who want to transport their cars to their summer homes. Hence, when the time comes to return to New Jersey, all those vehicles are shipped back to the Garden State.
The state’s economy today is fueled mainly by tourism, agriculture and fishing. The magnificent beaches and famous theme parks in Orlando bring millions of visitors every year and it is all great. The citrus fruits industry is prospering across the state. With a huge variety of fish and fishing spots, Florida has maintained its status as “The Fishing Capital of the World.” Electronics, construction, real estate, and international banking are among the newly-developing industries that expanded a number of jobs available to the state’s residents and the people relocating.
However, many people choose to relocate, and many choose New Jersey. Today, home to 9 million people, New Jersey is the most densely populated state in the US. The state’s geographic location fueled its rapid growth through the process of sub-urbanization over the last century. This began reverting New Jersey’s culturally diverse population toward more urban settings. Small towns grew around commuter rail stations outpacing the population growth of more automobile-oriented suburbs. This, and much more is what makes thousands of people move there.
