Shipping a car from Alaska to Texas

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

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 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.

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!

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 Texas?

Shipping a car from Alaska to Texas takes about 7 to 10 days, or more. 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. 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.

car shipping dealers

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.

Enclosed carrier transport

What documents do I need when shipping a car?

Domestic transport is easy. When shipping a car from Alaska 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.

Transition from Alaska to Texas

Texas has a lot to offer. It has become one of the top destinations for people moving from other states. That is because it has a steady job market, rich culture and affordable housing. Add to that the warm people and even warmer climate, and you have the perfect recipe for a great state.

For someone who has lived in Alaska, Texas’ temperatures will be a bit extreme. Compared to the mid-latitude oceanic climate of Southeast Alaska and the mild climate of Anchorage, Texas offers a different picture. While the south-central part of Alaska is covered by snow most of the time, you will not get that down south.

Most parts of Texas are characterized by high temperatures and dry heat. Don’t expect to see deserts everywhere you go in Texas though. While it is true that the state is often associated with them, desert only cover 10% of the state. Its climate varies from arid to humid. Since the state is very spread out, it is characterized by different climate zones. Don’t be surprised to learn that Texas, even though it rarely happens, receives snowfall especially in the Panhandle and its mountain parts.

Cost of living and the housing in Texas

Located in the northwest extremity of North America, Alaska is the 3rd least populous state in the US. At the same time, Texas, with its population of over 28.7 million people (as of September 2018), is the 2nd-most populous one. Nicknamed the “Lone Star” state, Texas ranks in the second position when it comes to land area, right behind Alaska which has a size of 663,267.26 square miles — the largest state in the US by land area.

Housing and living costs in Texas are much lower compared to other states in the US, and this includes the State of Alaska. As we mentioned in the beginning, one of the main reasons why so many people decide to start their new life in Texas is due to the state’s affordable housing and living costs. If we compare Houston to Anchorage, living costs in Houston are 24% less expensive than in Anchorage. Housing costs are also way cheaper. The median home cost in Houston, for example, is 47% less expensive than in Anchorage.

Besides Houston, other cities in Texas such as Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Frisco, Pearland, Plano, and San Antonio are worth moving to.

Employment opportunities and economy

Unlike the economy of Alaska, which is dominated by the oil and gas industry, fishing, military bases and tourism, Texas is a leader in industries such as energy, aerospace, computers and electronics, high technology, petrochemicals, and biomedical sciences. The state is also a leader in agriculture, which in Alaska represents only a small part of the economy.

With a Gross State Product (GSP) of $1.706 trillion (as of 2017), Texas is one of the most business-friendly states in the US. There is a high number of Fortune 500 companies headquartered in Texas as well, so you can find plenty of job opportunities in these companies or even start your own. Texas’ GSP is currently the second-highest in the US and if the state were a separate country, its economy would be among the top 10 largest ones in the entire world.

Texas attractions

Among the things you can visit in the Barbecue Paradise are the Big Bend National Park, River Walk Walkway, Alamo Mission in San Antonio, Padre Island, Palo Duro Canyon State Park, the Guadalupe Mountains National Park, Zilker Metropolitan Park, Six Flags Fiesta Texas, Lady Bird Lake, and more. Its beautiful nature, plenty of events throughout the year, and music festivals make Texas an attractive destination for all newcomers.

Moving to Texas with a car

As soon as you become a Texas resident, you will have up to 30 days to register your vehicle. You can also transfer your out-of-state driver’s license at the same time you submit your documents to register your car with the TX DMV. Make sure you show proof of auto insurance and get your car inspected before submitting all required documents.

We hope you have a great time in Texas, whether you are moving there permanently, or just temporarily.
