    Cost to ship a car factors

    The cost to ship a car depends on the following factors:

    VEHICLE MAKE & MODEL

    The size of the vehicle matters. Smaller cars are cheaper to ship, while bigger, heavier vehicles are more expensive. Auto transport carriers have a weight limit that they must observe, when accepting vehicles. Thus, 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 for the total weight of the vehicle and hence of the carrier.

    TRANSPORT TYPE
    DISTANCE
    LOCATION / POPULATION
    VEHICLE CONDITION
    SUPPLY & DEMAND

    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?

    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. If not the car sits on the board and waits.

    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 better.

    3. 3

      A car shipping calculator has preset parameters that determine the price. It never takes into consideration supply and demand fluctuations and this is what ultimately renders the price inaccurate.

    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!

    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!

    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:

    expedtited auto transport

    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. You may wonder how such differences are possible. They are possible because who gives you the quote matters.

    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.
