Shipping a car from Arizona to Chicago

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

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 is 5-star rated car shipping 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 Arizona to Chicago?

Shipping a car from Arizona to Chicago 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. 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.

Enclosed carrier transport

What documents do I need when shipping a car?

Domestic transport is easy. When shipping a car from Arizona to Chicago, 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.

Also known as the Windy City, Chicago is one of the busiest, prettiest, and most diverse city in the US. As the third largest city in the nation, Chicago is home to around 2.7 million people, while the Chicago Metropolitan area has a population of over 9.5 million. Sitting on the shores of Lake Michigan, which explains why they often call it the City by the Lake, Chicago’s skyline is arguably one of the most breathtaking in the entire world.

For someone moving from Arizona, the Chicago climate may be one of the biggest issues. If you’re tired of Arizona’s mild winters and extremely hot summers, Chicago will be nice for a change. But if you’re not used to a cold and snowy weather during the winter months, be ready to experience them in Chicago every year. On the bright side, you will not have to put up with high temperatures in Chicago anymore, as its summer and spring seasons are wonderful and the all the wait for their arrival will be worth it.

Housing and Living Costs

Housing and living costs are usually higher in Chicago compared to most cities in Arizona. If we compare Chicago with Phoenix, one of the most expensive cities in Arizona, Chicago is 12% more expensive, with the median home cost that can be 9% more expensive as well. Housing cost differences will depend a lot on which particular neighborhood you want to live in Chicago. Anywhere at the heart of the city, the median prices of one-bedroom houses varies from $700 to $2000. The further away you are from the city center, the less expensive housing prices will be.

Chicago’s neighborhoods are also quite different from each other, so it is advisable to do your research well before you settle in any particular neighborhood. Downtown, the Loop, River North, and the New East Side are among the most preferred areas.

Economy and Employment

Together with its suburbs, Chicago has one of the most balanced economies and the third-largest GMP in the US. Home to 29 Fortune 500 companies, the city has many job opportunities to offer, no matter your expertise. Among the industries that hire the most in Chicago are manufacturing, government, real estate, publishing, insurance, healthcare, food processing, and healthcare.

What to do in Chicago

The social scene in Chicago is one you cannot forget easily. With so many museums, galleries, theaters, miles and miles of crystal-clear shorelines, an abundance of farmer’s markets all over the city, food and beer festivals, and events happening on every corner, be ready to have s busy and exciting life in your new city.

Make sure you visit its parks like Millennium Park, Lincoln Park, Grant Park, Jackson Park and its many beautiful beaches. Once you have free time to stroll around the city, we would recommend you to visit the Willis Tower, Navy Pier, Cloud Gate, Shedd Aquarium, the Art Institute of Chicago, and let yourself get lost in the city.

Moving to Chicago with a car

In Chicago, owning a car can be very expensive. But if you cannot live without your vehicle and are willing to ship it from Arizona to Chicago, you will need to comply with Chicago’s registration rules. Once you establish your move in this vibrant city, you will need to register your car within 30 days as well as obtain an Illinois auto insurance in order to proceed with the registration process. Visit the Illinois Secretary of State site for more information.
