Factors to consider when shipping a car across the country

The Cost

The cost to ship a car across the country is usually the most important element. However, the cost is not a simple deduction based on distance and vehicle type. The better you understand all elements of a car shipping cost, the easier it will be to choose the right service, company and price.

The Location

Shipping from and to major cities usually equals faster service. Rural areas are more difficult to schedule because less carriers are willing to go. This means the price will be higher if you want a timely service. When shipping across country this could mean more than two weeks for delivery, after pick-up.

Seasonality

Seasonality is driven by supply and demand peaks and drops. When supply is higher, prices drop, when demand is higher prices go up. In auto logistics, when demand is high the truck spots fill quickly, which means more customers compete and prices increase. That is why a price quote is good for one week only.

The Distance

The distance always has an effect on the price to ship a car. In general, longer distances cost more. However, shorter distances sometimes cost as much as a long distance trips. It really depends on the type of vehicle you want to ship, but also on the type of service and exact location.

Transport Type

When shipping across country we always recommend enclosed trailer. It is usually more expensive, but will protect your car fully. Open trailer is the standard in the industry and certainly just as safe. It all depends on the type of vehicle you are shipping. The type of carrier you choose will affect your cost and delivery time.

The company

The auto transport company you choose will make all the difference. An honest and reliable company like Corsia Logistics will explain all of these details, and help you understand how shipping a car across country works. The company must be your guide every step of the way to give you updates and peace of mind.

CORSIA - A Five Star Rated Company

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!

Cay Liptak

High five's all around! 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 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.

Kelly Torres

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.

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 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!

Carroll Tiffany

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
