Driving your car
The questions is do you want to drive? And of course if the answer is no, then who will drive?
Would you trust your car in the hands of someone else to drive it thousands of miles? This is definitely a cheaper option and could also be faster, but there is a BUT! You can probably find someone who would be willing to drive your car. This could be a friend or a family member, or you can probably find a college student trying to make some extra cash. But if you don’t have someone close to do this then you will have to search and hire someone.
If you don’t have someone close whom you can trust, this is by no means the perfect method to ship a car. Now, if you decide to find someone, you have to draft a written contract detailing each party’s responsibilities.
How much does it cost to ship a car from New York to Texas?
The price from and to any destination is never a constant. Several variables decide the final cost of shipping a car. Vehicle make and model together with the distance set the base price for shipping.
Then the choice of carrier type enters the equation. Shipping a non-running car drives the price up due to additional equipment.
Picking up and delivering a vehicle to and from a rural area is a logistical challenge that usually costs more.
However, the deciding factor of all is the current supply and demand situation on a given route.
What types of services does an auto transport company offer?
In general, you’ll have a choice based on the type of carrier and on the 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
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 with him that all existing damages are marked 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.
From New York to Texas. Why?
Texas is definitely a good choice to settle down and start a new life. A lower-cost life, and of course enjoy the iconic Texas cuisine.
More is less, and it is spacious and it is warm. Less crowds and warmer weather is something most of us would definitely enjoy.
Texas is larger than almost any other state, but did you know that its population is larger than that of New York? Today, more than 28 million people live in Texas, and this number has been steadily growing.
However, there is plenty of land for everybody!
New York, on the contrary, usually feels overcrowded, unless you are somewhere far away upstate.
The next big factor in favor for Texas is climate. The weather in both states is subtropical, yet Texas is warmer and dryer due to negative snowfall across most of the land.
Sunny days and open lands await in Texas.
This is the main reason for thousands of snowbirds from Canada and the Midwest to flock to Texas. They want to enjoy the sunny days and average temperatures of about 70` F. Many reside in their RVs, some stay in temporary rentals and others have bought their own second homes there.
