Shipping a car from Arizona to California

How much does it cost to ship a car from Arizona to California?

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.

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 Arizona to California?

Shipping a car from California 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 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. 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 Arizona to California, 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 with that all existing damages are marked before you sign. Never sign a blank or incomplete document.

Moving to the Golden State is worth it

Moving to the most populated state in the USA will be an adventure on its own. There are so many things you will love about California. From its sunny beaches and beautiful nature to warm energy and great weather, the state is considered one of the best to live in the US. With a population of over 39.81 million as of January 1, 2018, California is steadily approaching the 40 million mark and is expected to become the home of over 41 million people by 2020.

In contrast to Arizona, the Golden State has a more diverse population and culture, even though the two states are so close to one another. Since both Arizona and California are very spread out, their climate varies a lot from one region to another within each state. Arizona has mainly desert climate with mild winters and hot summers, with temperatures that sometimes exceed 125 °F. In California, most parts of the state have a Mediterranean climate that ranges from polar to subtropical.

Economy and employment

In June 2018, the state of California surpassed the United Kingdom and moved one position up from the sixth place, becoming the world’s fifth-largest economy after the United States, China, Japan, and Germany. Its $2.75 trillion economy, thanks to the recent boom in financial services and real estate, is the largest in the US.

California is very expensive. The state is also infamous for its high-income taxes. On the bright side, you’ll find plenty of job positions in finance, real estate, farming, construction, the entertainment industry, government, scientific and technical business services, and IT. If you are looking for business opportunities, California is also the right place for you.

Housing and Living Costs

After Hawaii, California has the most expensive cost of living in the nation. Its housing costs are also some of the most expensive in the US. On the other hand, if you buy a house in California, the property taxes are below the national average.

If you haven’t yet decided where in California to settle – Northern part or Southern part, make sure you pick one as soon as you can. Both are very different from each other in terms of climate, culture, and overall atmosphere. That is why you should decide ahead which part fits you best. San Francisco, Berkeley, Irvine, San Jose, Fresno, Santa Barbara, San Mateo County, and Sacramento are some of the best places to live in California.

How to pass your free time in California?

Where should we start? The home of Hollywood, Golden Gate Bridge, Napa Valley Vineyards, and Beverly Hills is so much more than these usual touristy spots. Sure, you will have to put up with all the traffic jams from time to time, or almost every day if you’re unlucky. But no matter where you’ll live in California, be ready to have the time of your life.

Thanks to its spectacular weather, you will be able to do a lot of outdoor activities, visit all your favorite places, and walk your dog more often than you’re used to in Arizona or any other state. And when the summer time comes, you will see the true face of this multicultural state full of positive vibes.

Moving to California with a car

Having a car in California is very important. As we’ve mentioned in the beginning, the state is quite spread out. Hence, moving to California with a car will make your life easier in different ways. Keep in mind though, that the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has very strict rules about car registration and driver’s license, especially for new residents.

Once you move to California, you will have 20 days to register your car and 10 days to obtain a California driver’s license. Visit California DMW online to find a more information on car registration and driver’s license in California.
