Cost to ship a car a 1000 miles

Cost to ship a car a 1000 miles

A 1000 miles is the distance from New York to Missouri, or from San Francisco to Denver. Can you drive that?

How much does it cost to ship a car 1000 miles?

The auto transport cost depends on several factors: distance and vehicle make and model set the base price.

The type of auto transport service further affects the cost. However, the final deciding factor is current supply and demand on any given route.

Whether you are shipping a vehicle 200 or 2000 miles, the cost to ship a car variables are the same. Sometimes a short distance of 300 or 400 miles may cost as much as a 1000 mile trip. This could happen when you request an enclosed trailer or a guaranteed date delivery. The factors are various and it all depends on the unique situation.

Corsia auto transport coordinators track supply and demand daily and quote only current market prices to ship a car now.

Supply and demand

When booking a plane ticket, have you ever wondered why traveling on a specific date is more expensive compared to other dates? Well, this is due to supply and demand. Something similar happens when booking an auto transport service. It is not impossible to choose exact pick-up and delivery dates in advance, but it costs a premium.

In the auto transport industry, supply and demand determine the final cost to ship a car. Nevertheless, certain times of the year and certain routes are well known for price hikes. However, the supply and demand situation changes daily on every route, and, thus, a price can change in a matter of hours. So, the best price can never be locked ahead of time, but rather a week or two in advance, at most.

Auto transport is not like household moving or shipping a package. To offer competitive prices, auto transport management companies must track supply and demand fluctuations constantly.

The best way to save money is by being flexible with your shipping dates. If you are willing to wait a bit longer for your car to get picked up, you can get a break on the price.

Summer is the peak season when the demand for auto transport services often reaches its highest. Snowbirds’ routes, or shipping outbound from the Southern states, are usually affected during summer. But if you are shipping to the Southern states, you will pay more in winter and spring.

Is your car operable?

This is an important question. Whether your car is running or not, will seriously affect the price to ship a vehicle. You have to be prepared to pay a higher rate if you are shipping a non-operable vehicle. To load and unload an inoperable car the shipper needs special equipment such as a forklift or a winch. Plus, we certainly work with vetted carriers who know how to work this equipment.

What type of auto transport carrier do you prefer?

This is another important question, and aspect of the auto transport process to think about. The type of carrier you prefer depends on the level of protection required. Open auto transport is the standard shipping method used for all vehicle types. It is completely safe, less expensive, and faster to schedule because 90 percent of the carriers in the US are open.

If you are looking for more protection for your vehicle, ship it with enclosed transport. Enclosed trailers have soft or hard side cover that protects vehicles from weather and road elements. This type of carrier is usually used for high-end automobiles that demand white-glove service. This, however, t could cost you about $300 more than an open carrier and longer wait.

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.

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.
