How much does it cost to ship a sports car?

Sports car owners crave car performance as much as sleek design. They also become attached to their cars and take great care of them, especially if they are considering their car’s resale value.

If you are a sports car owner and in need of shipping your car from one state to the other or across the country, you’ve come to the right place! In the following short guide, we will answer all your burning questions. We will also cover all the essential details you need to ship your precious car from one state to the other in the safest way.

How much does it cost to ship a sports car?

Sports car shipping cost depends mainly on the type of vehicle, car modifications, the type of transport and certainly the distance.


This key factors sets the base price of shipping. Thus, whether you ship from West Coast to the East Coast, or to the neighboring state, the distance will affect your shipping price.

Nevertheless, keep in mind that longer distances do not necessarily mean higher prices. Fewer miles traveled increases the cost per mile in most cases, so it will be helpful to keep this in mind when you ask for different shipping quotes.

Make and model

Sports cars are usually smaller and lighter, and yet it does not mean it is cheaper to ship such automobiles. Whether you need to ship an Audi R8, a Lamborghini Aventador, or any other sports car, it usually requires the car shipping company to provide extra attention and care.

Carrier type

As you may know, there are several types of car carriers you can choose to ship your car. The open transport carrier, for instance, is a safe option and also more affordable than enclosed auto transport. However, the downsides of choosing an open auto transport can become more costly if you consider that your sports car might be exposed to bad weather and road debris.

That is why sports car owners prefer to go with enclosed auto transport as it provides the maximum protection to your precious car. This is also the transport type we recommend to sports car owners as well.

Car Modifications

Another factor that is often overlooked is car modifications. There are different types of car modifications, and each of them can affect auto transport costs differently. Major modification types that change the size and weight of the car are some of the most common modifications that will affect the shipping cost. For some more details you can check our guide on shipping modified cars.

Additional factors

Besides the main factors above, other factors often affect your car shipping costs as well.

– Vehicle condition, which deals with whether the car is running on its own power or not.

– Supply and demand, which can be a deciding factor for many routes and during certain seasons.

– Special requests such as top load or single car carrier contribute to higher price.

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.

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!

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.
