How to ship BMW i Series

How to ship BMW i Series

When luxury, sustainability and speed come together, you get the BMW i-Series! This group of vehicles delivers a high performance experience with concern for the environment!

This series is perhaps BMW’s most innovative vehicles currently on the market. Do you already own one? Or perhaps you want to buy one and experience the thrill? Awesome! However, when it comes to transporting them, there are some thing you need to know. Get started with this guide!

How to ship a BMW i-Series?

If you are an owner of an i-series model, you know how much it costs. Not only its financial cost but the emotional value attached to it. This is why your sports car requires extra care during transport.

You need a reputable auto transporter that knows how to handle high-end vehicles. Luxury vehicles like these always require white glove services – from the moment you request a quote to the day of delivery and even afterward.

Your BMW deserves the same amount of care and attention in transporting as it received in its production. This is why you need to choose a carrier with know-how and references to prove it.

How to choose a car shipping company for BMW?

In order to get great car shipping services you should follow the best practices here:

  • Learn more about the companies you are researching

Gather all the information you can about your potential auto transport company – name, address, phone numbers, USDOT license information, and insurance policy. Consult the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration and see if the car shipper’s license is active. For example, here at Corsia Logistics we always make sure to keep our licenses in check.

  • Always look at the company’s expertise

Does the company have any recorded cases of shipping a car similar to yours? Corsia Logistics has extensive experience in transporting luxury and sports cars. We recently shipped an Audi across the country, numerous Porsche models, a Ferrari, and even a Lamborghini. You can do a quick search in our website to learn more about those. We had an opportunity to ship a BMW i8 series, too (image below).

  • Try to find opinions that prove the expertise

Everyone can brag about themselves. Yet, this might not always be a true reflection of reality. You need to look for an outside opinion – for example, past client reviews. Positive reviews will add extra peace of mind that a transporter can handle your i8 or i3. At Corsia, we strive for open and honest communication with our clients and we value their opinions. You can read about our clients’ experience and see their evaluation of our services in their own words.

What is the best car shipping service for BMW i-Series?

When you find the right carrier, have a talk with the representatives. They should give you honest advice on what’s best for your car.

Because of their high value, owners of luxury cars usually go with enclosed auto transport. Such trailers shield cars from potentially damaging weather conditions or road debris. The higher protection naturally comes at a slightly higher cost. Several reasons play into that, but ultimately it all comes down to it being a high-end service in every regard, even insurance.

Another simple reason has to do with the number of enclosed trailers in the country. They are simply fewer of them. Hence, they are mostly used for luxury, sports, and classic cars. This lack of supply leads to a higher cost.

Just like the higher price of the i-series, the higher price of the enclosed auto transport pays off. With open auto transport, you leave your car to the mercy of the elements, road debris and dirt. Enclosed auto transport takes care of that.

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.
