Car Shipping Seattle Guide

Car Shipping Seattle Guide

Moving to a new city often changes our perspectives and priorities. However, only after some years you get to know the people, the culture and will realize the changes that have taken place inside you. Experience is everything, wise people say.

Our experience in the auto transport industry has grown over the past several years, and we now proudly serve thousands of customers in Seattle metro area, every year.

At Corsia Logistics we don’t only move cars, we educate our customers and help them understand how auto transport works, and what is best for their vehicle.

Check our guide here as we will answer some commonly asked questions about moving and shipping a car to Seattle.

What options do I have?

When you need to move a vehicle from one location to another, your two main option are:

  1. driving the vehicle
  2. shipping the vehicle

Driving the car to your destination would be a great option if you are ready for a road trip. Road trips are great because driving can be a sort of meditation. Driving long distances, however, is not a task everybody can handle. When the distance is greater than 200 miles, we recommend shipping the vehicle.

You could also opt for a drive-away service. This means that you will allow another driver behind the wheel of your car. Some companies specialize in finding people with clean driving history to do this kind of jobs. They are not professional drivers, however.  One question to ask here is, is it really worth putting those extra miles on your vehicle instead of saving them for your next road trip vacation?

Shipping your car with an auto hauling company saves you time, and it spares your car’s odometer from additional hundreds of miles. When you have to move a car across the country this often means adding at least a thousand miles to the odometer, oil change, flat tires and other possible issues.

The best option really is to hire an auto transport company. An auto transport company will load your vehicle onto a trailer and deliver it to your door. You will not need to worry about an unknown person driving your car. Peace of mind is guaranteed.

Don’t Drive – Ship Your Car To Seattle!

Driving a vehicle across the country means embarking on a long distance trip. This could be stressful and exhausting. Many people often think that driving their vehicle would be cheaper than shipping it. In 90 percent of the cases, however, this is not the case.

Just think about all the time and the money you will spend on a cross country trip, and then compare that to some auto transport rates. Car shipping from Los Angeles to Seattle, for example, could cost from $650 for a small sedan, and go up to $800 and more for an SUV.

Auto transport Seattle rates depend on distance, car’s make and model, modifications, type of transport and whether you choose open or enclosed auto transport, as well as current supply and demand.

How much does it cost to ship a car to Seattle?

An important factor in price formation is current supply and demand situation. If demand is high, spots on the trucks will be limited, and the competition for one spot will be higher. In this industry a customer competes against other customers for a spot on a truck. When spots are limited usually the higher paying loads ship first.

The average cost to ship a vehicle may vary by company, so, think about all those rates you are getting online. Don’t be lured by the lowest rate. Also, keep in mind that often large companies charge more money for the same service smaller companies can offer.

Auto transport is not a cheap service, yet, there is no need to pay more than the current market price. We provide manual quotes – this means that we track the price fluctuations constantly and provide the most accurate rates. We do not use a calculator because this automation of the pricing process does not deliver accurate quotes and also increases the price.

The supply and demand situation is a very important factor in the auto transport industry and tracking this daily happens only manually. Our rates are affordable to the customer and acceptable by the carrier. This is a rate that will guarantee reliable auto transport service.

How long does it take to ship a car to Seattle?

The total time to ship a car is split into two windows – pick-up time and transit time.

The transit time depends on the distance and the exact location. That is how many miles in total the vehicle will travel and whether the pick-up and delivery location is a major city or a rural town. Transport time is also affected by seasonality, traffic and weather conditions.

How do I choose the right service for my vehicle?

When you book, with a full service auto transport company, you will have to choose between open and enclosed carrier. Open trailer is the standard method of shipping automobiles. You can see those types of trailer roaming the roads daily.

Enclosed are also working daily, however, they are less available and more specialized. Enclosed auto transport is more expensive as well, but it offers more protection for your vehicle. It all depends on how much protection you would want to get for your vehicle.

After booking your service, you have to get your car ready for shipping, wait for your vehicle to be picked up, and then wait for the driver at your home, or an agreed point to accept delivery and do post-shipping inspection.

If you would like to talk to our logistics experts to discuss the process and schedule your auto transport please call us at (818) 850-5258. To make a booking online please request a quote online and we will send you an email with a quote and more information how to reserve a spot on a truck online. Thank you!

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.
