car make & model

Smaller cars are cheaper to ship, while bigger vehicles are more expensive. Still, a sports automobile in an enclosed trailer could cost more than an SUV in an open.

Transport Type

Open auto transport is the standard mode in the industry. It is the most affordable way to ship a car. Enclosed car carrier costs more. They are specialized trailers.


Total miles matter and they set the base price. Longer distances usually cost more. The more miles your vehicles travels the less per mile.


Whether the car is coming and going to a major metro area or rural place matters. Major cities mean lower rate, remote areas the opposite.

Vehicle Condition

A vehicle that is not moving on its own power may require a winch or a forklift to be loaded. This increased the price.

Supply / Demand

When demand is high the truck space is limited and this means higher prices. It is the same when supply is low.

how long does it take Los Angeles Car Shipping?

Shipping a car takes one to several days. The time to ship a car is split in two time frames – pick-up window and delivery window. The pick-up window is usually one to five business days. The delivery after that depends on the total distance, as well as a few other elements. 

The exact location is an important factor that affects transport times. Other factors such as road closures, weather, traffic and other customer’s delays could affect the delivery time.

Los Angeles Car Shipping

Find a Los Angeles Car Shipping Company

The first step is to find an auto transport company that serves your route. If you need auto transport from Los Angeles to New York then make sure the company serves this route. Some companies for example transport cars from Los Angeles to San Francisco only, and everything in between. In this case these are local companies that provide car shipping service within California.

Insurance and License when shipping a car to Los Angeles

When shipping a car it is important to verify the company’s license and insurance policy. This should be a quick check on the phone with the company. Many companies have posted their license numbers on their website, but you can always ask and check online on the FMCSA website.

Request an auto transport rate

After you have confirmed that a company serves the route you need then you need to request your car shipping rate. You can always check online for average auto transport rates for this particular distance. This will help you determine whether the rate you have is reasonable or not. Ask if the service will be door-to-door or terminal-to-terminal. Some companies serve only terminals and may ask for additional money to deliver your car to your requested address.

Corsia Logistics provides door-to-door auto transport service and we will always ship your vehicle as close to your door as legally possible.

Booking your auto transport service to Los Angeles!

Booking your car shipping service is not exactly the last step. It means you have chosen the transporter and the time frame for shipping. After that comes vehicle pick-up and delivery. An important part you need to pay attention to is the vehicle condition report or also called a Bill of Lading. This is a document the carrier completes at pickup and delivery. Make sure the carrier inspects your vehicle completely before loading it onto the trailer. It is very important to mark down any previous damages. On delivery this will help you determine whether there are any damages caused during transport.

Additional information: Broker and Carrier facts when shipping a car

Some automobile logistics companies are both carriers and brokers (auto transport management companies). Car transport carrier companies can not serve every single route in the US and therefore they work with broker companies, or they obtain broker license.

Most carriers are small independent companies who serve only one or two routes and all their customers come from brokers. The broker is the connection between you (the shipper) and the auto transporter. This is how the industry operates – brokers, carriers and customers are tightly connected. Just like in many other industries – in the auto transport shipping cannot happen without brokers or carriers of course. This is what drives this industry to stay competitive and not monopolized.

A good broker company will stay in touch with you from pick-up to delivery. After your car is picked up the carrier becomes your primary point of contact, but any good broker will tell you can count on them and call their number at any time with questions.
