How much does it cost to ship a car from Alaska to Florida?
Several variables decide the final cost. 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 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!

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.

How long does it take to ship a car from Alaska to Florida?
Shipping a car from Alaska to Florida takes about 5 to 7 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, such as your Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla usually go on an open-air trailer. If you need to ship a high-end sports or luxury 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. Delivery, in this case would be 5-7 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 Alaska to Florida, 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.
From cold Alaska to the Sunshine State
Are you ready to leave your winter boots behind and switch to wearing flip-flops most of the time? In Orlando, it is legal to drive in flip-flops or even barefoot! What can be bolder than moving from Alaska to the Sunshine State? This decision is hard to make if you’re used to living in Alaska, but at the same time it can be very exciting and thrilling. Life in Florida is completely different than a lot of other states in America, especially compared to Alaska.
Located in the northwest extremity of North America, Alaska is the 3rd least populous state in the US. Florida, on the contrary, is the third most populous one. Unlike the former, which is the most sparsely populated state of all, Florida is the 8th most densely populated.
Embracing the new climate
Southeast Alaska has a mid-latitude oceanic climate. The Anchorage and the south central part of Alaska has a mild climate and gets more snow than southeast Alaska. When you move to Florida, the cold and the snow will be replaced by sunny weather and sometimes hurricanes and tornadoes. Most parts of the Sunshine State have a subtropical climate with mild winters and hot and humid summers.
The transition can be a bit jarring, because you will need to get acclimatized to your new location. However, many people want just that, since the sunny weather also boosts up your mood!
Housing costs in Florida
To really estimate the difference in housing and living costs, you should first decide in which city in Florida you want to reside. While the State of Florida can be more expensive than other states in general, when compared to Alaska, some cities in Florida can be more affordable. If we compare both capitals of Alaska and Florida, for example, the cost of living in Tallahassee, is 24% less expensive than in Juneau.
The Median Home Cost is also cheaper in Tallahassee with up to 55% lower costs. If you are currently living in Anchorage — the largest city in Alaska, you might find some cities in Florida way more expensive to live. Read more comparisons between Juneau and Tallahassee as well as other cities on Numbeo.com.
The economy of Florida compared to Alaska
The economy of Alaska is dominated by the oil and gas industry, fishing, military bases and tourism, which is growing every year. Agriculture in Alaska represents a fairly small part of the economy, while the manufacturing industry is mostly limited.
Florida has one of the richest economies in the US and just recently surpassed the $1 trillion mark. Mainly fueled by manufacturing, trade, financial services, transportation services, and construction, the economy of Florida is also fueled by tourism. The state attracts hundreds of millions of tourists every year.
Activities in the Sunshine State
Florida is much more than its usual attractions such as the Kennedy Space Center, Universal Orlando, Duval Street, Mallory Square, or Daytona 500 International Speedway. You can also visit the Giraffe Ranch, Epcot Theme Park, Florida Keys, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, or even Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Other great locations are the Busch Garden in Tampa, the South Beach, SeaWorld in Orlando, Sanibel Island, Magic Kingdom, the Everglades National Park, and the Dry Tortugas National Park.
The state is perfect for everyone who loves nature and loves to practice their favorite outdoor sports. Whether you want to go surfing, biking, camping, hiking, swimming, kayaking and more, you can do so in Florida, no matter which city you pick to live in.
Moving to Florida with a car
Once you establish your move to the Land of Flowers, you have up to 30 days to register and title your vehicle with your local DHSMV. Just make sure you read more about all the documents you need to prepare in advance, to make the registering process easier. Check out the official site of DMV for Florida for more info.
