Moving from California to Massachusetts

Moving from California to Massachusetts

Cross-country moves take a lot of effort to execute properly. On top of that, transitioning from the west coast to the east coast presents its own set of challenges. What is the best thing you can do right now? Prepare yourself!

For example, do you know the specifics of shipping a car from California to Massachusetts? This can be quite important, as most people do not want to embark on such a long drive. Don’t worry, though! Together we will check out the important things to know about your move. That way the relocation can be at least a little bit smoother. Let’s get going!

What to know when moving to Massachusetts



Chances are you already know what to expect of the state. However, have you thought through the moving process itself? Certain key points apply specifically when moving from California to Massachusetts.

For starters, take the moving season into account. There are a couple of reasons for that. For instance, the end of summer means the beginning of the back to school season. If you plan your relocation around that time, you might want to book services sooner than normal. That also includes auto transport.

Additionally, the season matters because the weather may catch you off guard. We are not talking about just a difference in climate here. To put it simply, have some warmer clothes ready as sudden temperature drops happen regularly. Normal 70oF during the day can turn to chilly 50oF over the night. So, don’t rely on buying all your winter clothes once you get there. Prepare in advance!

The unique side of the Bay State

When people start researching their future places of living, they focus on a few aspects. Those include the job market, housing and living costs, commuting, and, perhaps, culture. Quite often, though, it turns out that many things still end up surprising them.

That is why we have collected some interesting notes that are not the first things to hear about the state. Hopefully, they will help you have an even better picture of where you are going!

  • Packed with stuff to do. Though rather small, the state hardly lacks anything. If you enjoy nature, there are many outdoor activities in Massachusetts. The place also caters to history and science enthusiasts. You may even find a new hobby in exploring historical towns.
  • Not a snobby attitude! Many have pointed out that people in MA seem a bit reserved or downright snobby. That is not really the case, though. Most of them simply dislike small talk and forced friendliness, so they avoid engaging in such interactions. Just don’t mistake that for coldness!
  • Embracing diversity. To add to the previous point, the Bay State is quite diverse. People have largely adopted the attitude “live and let live”, so you can meet folks from all walks of life there. That also includes a good number of foreigners. In fact, you may also see plenty of foreign celebrations.

Whether you want to embark on the various day trips, or you just want to enjoy city life, MA offers a lot. Will you miss some of the more colorful aspects of California? Maybe. Regardless of that, you might find out that the two states are more alike than people think!

Do you need a car in Massachusetts?

You may hear many people tell you that you can get around the Bay State without a car. However, most of the time, they are only thinking about Boston. That city has good infrastructure and public transportation, so having a vehicle there is not that important. With that said, we should look at the bigger picture.

It might be true that households have fewer vehicles on average, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have any. While single people can get by in Boston without a car, most families still have one for weekend trips.

And what if you are not going to live in Boston? Then you would definitely need a vehicle. But you might also want one anyway. After all, Massachusetts has plenty of magnificent areas to explore. Sadly, getting to them just on foot would be a challenge! That is why it would be a good idea to look into car shipping services, which can transport your vehicle easily.

Are you excited about moving from California to Massachusetts?

Many people don’t like change. However, it can often be quite welcome. Seeing the world from a different angle, even in the same country, will give you an invaluable perspective. Sure, you might not be ecstatic about the moving process, but you can definitely enjoy the transition.

We hope you are going to like the opportunities that the Bay State will present to you. Don’t forget that if you need any help in getting your car there, we are here for you. Our team at Corsia Logistics can guide you through the entire process. Request a car shipping quote online or call our team now!

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!

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.
