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

Did you know that nearly 1000 people move to Florida every day? With such a high moving rate, it is no surprise that many people are looking to ship their car to the Sunshine State daily.

If you are among those people, you must be wondering about the cost to ship a car to Florida. In this short guide, we will help you understand how auto transport cost is calculated and share a few tips on how to ship your car to the Sunshine State efficiently.

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

In general, the cost to ship a car depends on several factors. Let’s take a look at what they are and how they affect the car shipping price you pay:


First and foremost. It is one of the decisive factors that set the base price of shipping. Logically, the longer the distance is from Florida, the more it will cost you.

However, in some cases, shorter distances might cost as much as shipping a car from one coast to the other. The reason for it is that fewer miles traveled increases the price per mile.

Vehicle make and model

Just like distance, this is another factor that you cannot change. Your vehicle’s make and model is another constant that, together with distance, sets the base price. Logically, the cost of shipping will be higher for bigger and heavier cars.

Also, you have a model that requires extra effort to load and unload due to its condition or modifications, the cost of shipping will most likely increase.

Auto transport type

There are different types of car carriers you can choose from. Some will cost you more, others will cost you less. However, your main choice will always come down to two options – open and enclosed auto transport.

If you go with enclosed auto transport (the most expensive one), you should expect the shipping cost to be higher. Use it if you own a luxury car, a sports car, or a classic vehicle that you need to protect as much as you can.

Otherwise, you can opt for open auto transport, which is the standard shipping method. This transport type is used for all kinds of vehicles and is the least expensive option.

Are there any other factors that affect the car shipping cost?

Among other factors that can increase or decrease the shipping cost are the exact pick-up and drop-off locations, the running condition of your vehicle, as well as the current supply and demand on a given route.

Some additional factors to consider are your preferences. For instance, if you request an expedited auto transport service and a top load for your vehicle, expect the car shipping cost to be much higher.

What is the cheapest way to ship a car to Florida?

Although the factors that affect the cost of auto transport are beyond our control, there are a few ways you can lower your car shipping cost.

Pick open auto transport

Choosing open auto transport over enclosed will help you reduce the shipping costs. As previously mentioned, this method is the standard shipping method in the industry. Businesses and private customers alike choose it every day due to its safety, efficiency, and affordability.

Be flexible with the shipping dates

If you are not in a rush, try to be flexible with the shipping dates. The auto transport company will then be able to give you a few possible shipping dates, so you can pick the cheapest option.

Another way to work around the dates is to plan the shipping as early as possible. This will give you the advantage of selecting a slow period where prices are not skyrocketing.

Door-to-door or terminal-to-terminal?

Contrary to popular opinion, door-to-door may cost you less than terminal-to-terminal. Work with your auto transport company to determine whether it is the easiest and cheapest option for you and your car. This service is our standard shipping method at Corsia Logistics.

The terminal-to-terminal might be more expensive because of the added storage fees and proximity of the terminal.

How to find the best auto transport company?

Before going on a hunt to find the best auto transport company, you should keep in mind that there are many great shipping companies out there, just like there are many dishonest companies trying to take advantage of first-time shipping customers.

But how do you know the car shipping company is reliable and your car will be in good hands?

Once you notice that the company has great reviews, offers realistic prices, and is responsive, you can be sure that the business is reputable.

Once you choose 2-3 favorite companies, pick up the phone and start calling them. Get a feel of the people working for that company and how helpful they are before you make up your mind and hire them.

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!

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!

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.
