How do I ship a Mercedes-Benz?

An exclusive car like Mercedes-Benz deserves the utmost care. And taking care of your automobile also includes ensuring smooth transportation whenever you need to move it long-distance.

Let us assume you need to ship your Mercedes-Benz CLA. What steps should you follow? In this post, you will find some useful tips and information about shipping a Mercedes. Corsia Logistics has transported this brand numerous times, and we are here to offer our expert advice.

How to plan for my Mercedes-Benz auto transport?

Having a plan is key to ensuring the stress-free transportation of your luxury vehicle. Below are a few steps to help you navigate the car shipping process.

Step 1: Research. When it comes to shipping your Mercedes, the quality of service is essential. To guarantee superior handling of your high-end car, you need to find a company with experience in shipping luxury vehicles. Recommendations are one of the best ways to find a reliable and trustworthy company. You can start by browsing customer reviews on trusted review sites like TrustPilot or MyMovingReviews.

Step 2: Choose. Narrow down your search to 2-3 companies, inquire about the services they offer, and request quotes. Check their compliance with licensing and insurance requirements. Engage with the company’s representatives and try to assess their responsiveness and customer service.

Step 3. Book. After deciding on the company, continue with the shipping arrangements. Agree on the pick-up time and place, provide accurate information on your exact destination, your vehicle details, confirm payment method, and double-check insurance information to avoid unnecessary surprises.

Step 4. Prepare your Mercedes-Benz for shipping. Remove personal belonging and any detachable accessories, which may damage your car’s interior during transport. Make sure to leave a 1/4 tank of gas, enough for loading and unloading. At pick up, carefully inspect your Mercedes alongside the carrier and document its condition on the Bill of Lading (BOL), so you can make a comparison at delivery. We recommend scheduling pick up/delivery during the daytime so that any potential scratches and dings can be prevented and observed.

Step 5. Delivery and final inspection. Make sure to be available by phone or email for any communication about your vehicle’s delivery. At drop off, perform the final inspection of your vehicle, sign the BOL, and pay the remaining balance, if any.

What type of carrier should I choose to ship a Mercedes-Benz?

Mercedes-Benz is a high-end car, hence you want to make sure it’s properly protected during transport. We recommend you opt for enclosed carrier or top-load transport if shipping via open carrier.

Enclosed carriers, will shield your car from road debris or harsh weather conditions. At Corsia Logistics, we have successfully shipped various Mercedes models, including Mercedes-Benz CLA and Mercedes-AMG S63. We have usually used enclosed carriers, but also the top-load transport for shorter distances.

How much does it cost to ship a Mercedes-Benz?

Different factors such as the exact model of your car, distance, and type of carrier affect the cost. But the deciding factor is always current supply/demand fluctuations on a given route.

For instance, shipping your Mercedes-Benz from New York to California, during the winter holiday season, in an enclosed carrier, will most likely cost more than shipping your car from Florida to New York during the spring, using top-load transport.

This is where planning and asking for advice from the shipping company can be useful. Because only the price that reflects the most current market conditions will guarantee timely and efficient service.

Corsia Logistics vehicle relocation experts manually track daily market fluctuation, so you receive a five-star-service at an optimum price. Request your personalized quote online or call our team now.

What makes Mercedes-Benz different from others?

Mercedes-Benz is a car with a long history of innovation, quality, speed, and luxury. The brand originated in Germany in the 19th century and has successfully passed the test of time and space.

But each brand has its own unique qualities that appeal to different car enthusiasts. Safety, comfort, and durability are what have made Mercedes-Benz stand out through the years. Celebrities such as John Lennon or Coco Chanel have driven Mercedes-Benz 600 enjoying the luxury of the brand.

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 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!

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.
