Shipping a car from Alabama to Texas

How much does it cost to ship a car from Alabama to Texas?

Several variables affect the final cost to ship a car from Alabama to Texas. Vehicle make and model, together with the distance set the base price for shipping. Then the choice of carrier type enters the equation. Shipping a non-running car drives the price up due to additional equipment. Remote areas of the country also cost more. However, current supply and demand decides the final price.

Corsia Logistics - 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!

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.

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!

How long does it take to ship a car from Alabama to Texas?

Shipping a car from Alabama to Texas takes about 1 to 3 days. Various factors could affect the shipping times and this means that shipping time is always an estimate. Open auto transport is usually faster and cheaper due to high availability.

What services does CORSIA offer?

Corsia Logistics provides the following car shipping services:

by carrier type: open and enclosed trailer

by time frame: standard and expedited delivery

Choosing a carrier type really depends on the type of vehicle you need to ship. Standard everyday sedans usually go on an open auto transport trailer. If you need to ship a high-end automobile, or any classic vehicle you should choose enclosed trailer.

Standard car shipping means that a carrier will pick up your vehicle within few days. However, please keep in mind that all dates and times are only estimates.

Expedited delivery could guarantee that your car is picked up or delivered on or by a specified date and time.

Open auto transport is the standard solution. It is faster and cheaper. Open carriers are readily available and this makes them efficient and preferred by private customers and businesses alike.

Enclosed auto transport is a preferred solution for sports and high-end automobiles. It offers complete protection from weather and road elements. However, it could take a bit longer to book and schedule. It is more expensive as well.

What documents do I need when shipping a car?

Domestic transport is easy. When shipping a car from Alabama to Texas, you or someone on your behalf must release the vehicle to the carrier at pick-up.

The person at pick-up will also need to sign a Bill of Lading (BOL). The BOL is a receipt and an inspection report. When the carrier inspects the car you need to check that all existing damages are marked before you sign. Never sign a blank or incomplete document.

Alabama – a sunny, southern state

The Yellowhammer State – Alabama, is a calm and pleasant place. Situated at the Heart of the Dixie (its other, probably more popular nickname) Alabama has a diverse nature – with the Tennessee valley in the north and the Gulf of Mexico in the south.

Alabama has a population of around 5 million. Montgomery is Alabama’s capital and the largest city is Huntsville, with both having a population of around 200 thousand, give or take. Birmingham metropolitan area is the state’s largest metro area with just over a million inhabitants.

Alabama has a rich culture. Harper Lee wrote her most-famous novel “To Kill a Mockingbird” in Alabama, just where the story of the book takes action. Forrest Gump is also “born” there. Last but not least – we all know (and love) Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Sweet Home Alabama!

Alabama Disadvantages

Alabama has some major pros like fresh seafood and some underrated beaches at the Gulf, good beer to complement your even better barbecue. However, there are some major cons.

Many places are closed on Sundays

Selling alcohol is banned in some places

The weather can be turbulent

Expect big cockroaches often

Moving to Texas

shipping a car to texas

Texas is an economic giant and has an advantage over Alabama in terms of numbers. Most people find the climate and food here are also more suitable for their tastes.

Austin is the capital, but it’s far from the largest, despite numbering nearly a million. Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio are both much larger.

Texas Economy

Most of the state’s economy is in high-tech fields, mainly aerospace  and medicine. The GDP of Texas exceeds US$1.9 trillion, ranking second in the United States.

The state has abundant natural resources, especially oil, but tourism and higher education also bring benefits. The largest employers are the University of Texas at Austin, MD Anderson Cancer Ctr and MD Anderson.

Houston – the Space city

This is where most of Houston’s nicknames come from. The Lyndon Johnson Space Center is a major technology center. It is the main center of NASA’s manned spaceflight and the birthplace of the famous saying “Houston, we have a problem!”

Texas Medical Center

As a global medical leader, the Texas Medical Center with the largest number of medical institutions in one place has more than 100,000 employees, receives 10 million patients every year, and has a GDP of 25 billion U.S. dollars.

A very liberal state

The state’s liberal laws allow large African American, Asian, Hispanic, LGBTQ, and Christian communities to co-exist peacefully.


The Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Mavericks, Texas Rangers and Dallas Stars all play in their respective major leagues. They have a fanatical following and are very popular! Other cool places worth visiting include the Bishop Arts District, John F. Kennedy Memorial Plaza, Sixth Floor Museum, Dallas Botanic Gardens and Botanical Gardens, Dallas World Aquarium and Six Flags Texas!


Traffic congestion is one of Houston’s biggest problems. Commuters in Houston spend more time on the road than most Americans, an average of one hour or more per day.

Due to the hot and humid weather, Houston is a huge breeding ground for mosquitoes.

Due to its proximity to the ocean and the Gulf of Mexico, Houston is prone to floods and hurricanes.

There is no state income tax in Texas, but this is a trap. This makes up for the 8.25% sales tax, which is on the high end in the US.

Austin vs.  Montgomery

Montgomery, the capital of Alabama, has some major advantages over Austin and they can all be summarized by being generally cheaper. Montgomery has lower average home price, cheaper food, housing and transportation. However, Austin is considerably bigger with a larger and better-paid labor market. This can easily be seen by the unemployment rates and by the average income.
