How much does it cost to ship a car?

Short distances cost about $1.95/mile. This is for short distances between 1-500 miles. A 300-mile trip would cost $585.

Medium distances cost about $0.94/mile. This is 500 to 1500 miles. For 1000 miles the cost would be $940.

Long distances cost about $0.59/mile. This is for 1500 miles or more.  A trip of 1500 miles would be $885.

Please, keep in mind that prices do change frequently due to several factors that control the cost to ship a car. That is why a price quote is valid for one week only.

Cost to ship a car factors

Vehicle make and model

Smaller cars are cheaper to ship, while bigger, heavier vehicles are more expensive. The make and model of your vehicle, as well as any modifications done to it, and whether there will be any personal items loaded inside, all matter.

Transport Type

Open auto transport is the standard shipping method in the industry. It is used for all vehicle types and it is the less expensive option due to higher availability. Enclosed auto transport is more expensive and often used for sports, luxury or classic automobiles.


The longer the distance the less it costs per mile, but that is never the decisive factor. Shorter distances still consume gas and require the same amount of work, but in the end it is fewer miles traveled, which increases the price per mile as well.


  Auto transport to and from rural areas is a more complex and economically challenging. Fewer auto haulers are willing to go to remote areas to pick-up or deliver vehicles. This often means higher prices and longer wait for pick-up, or delivery.

Vehicle Condition

To ship a non-running vehicle we need a truck that can winch it onto the trailer. This requires more work, more time and additional equipment. A special truck, and special skill set means a higher rate. In some cases, we may even need a forklift.

Supply and Demand

When supply is higher than demand, prices drop, but when demand is higher prices go up. When demand is high the truck space is limited and this means prices increase. That is why a quote is good for one week only.  Understanding supply and demand is very important in the auto transport industry.

Additional cost to ship a car factors to consider:

Do you need an expedited service?

If the answer is yes, keep in mind that expedited auto transport service costs more. If you need your vehicle picked-up or delivered on an exact date, or by an exact date, expect to pay a premium.

Do you need door-to-door or terminal-to-terminal?
Do you need a top load for your vehicle?

How does auto transport work?

What is the difference between manual and automated quotes?

  1. 1

    Auto transport prices depend on supply and demand fluctuations. Daily fluctuations in supply and demand affect auto transport prices. When a vehicle is priced correctly, according to current market conditions a carrier will take it right away.

  2. 2

    A logistics expert can quote a very accurate price based on current supply and demand situation, and that is why a manual quote is always accurate.

CORSIA is Five Star Rated Company


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!

Cay Liptak

High five's all around! 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!

Elizabeth Woodward

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.

Kelly Torres

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.

Amy Nelson

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!

Carroll Tiffany

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

How many days in advance should I book in order to save?

Booking your service one to two weeks in advance is best. Any time earlier than that does not guarantee a lower rate or a faster service.

The auto transport industry is heavily influenced by supply and demand fluctuations, and prices often change daily. Sometimes even a same day booking can be quoted a lower price than orders booked a week or a month in advance due to a sudden cancellation or carrier schedule updates.

What do I need to know about car shipping quotes?

All quotes are not created equal, neither are all auto transport companies. When you search online you will come across three major entities involved in the auto transport business:

What company do I trust to quote me fair price?

The engine of the car shipping industry is all small and mid-size broker and carrier companies that work together on daily basis to deliver efficient and affordable shipping.

Prices often vary between all three entities. Some companies will quote high prices, while others will quote unrealistically low rate.

The prices given by lead generator websites and auction websites are usually low-ball prices. Broker and carrier companies can give you the most realistic market price.
