Shipping a car from Arizona to Michigan

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

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!

How long does it take to ship a car from Arizona to Michigan?

Shipping a car from Arizona to Michigan 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. 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 Michigan, 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.

Moving to the Great Lakes State


Home to 64,980 inland lakes and ponds, no wonder Michigan is called the ‘Great Lakes State’. This Midwestern state is the only one that is made up of two peninsulas: the Lower Peninsula (LP) which looks like an oven mitt on a map, and the Upper Peninsula (UP) which is well known for its natural beauty and is separated from the LP by the Straits of Mackinac. The state’s name comes from the word ‘Ojibwe’ which means ‘large water’ or “large lake”.

Compared to Arizona’s population of over 7 million people, Michigan has a population of almost 10 million people which makes it the 10th most populous state in the US. If you’re worried that you will miss the diversity of Arizona once you move, don’t sweat it! Michigan is also a melting pot of different cultures, people, and cuisines from all over the world.


Moving from a southwestern region to Midwest means that you will have to prepare yourself for a drastic climate change. Arizona has a desert climate with hot summers and mild winters in the southern part, and moderate temperatures during the summer with snow falls during the winter in the Northern part.
Michigan has a continental climate which differs depending on which part of Michigan you decide to relocate. The southern and central parts of the Lower Peninsula have a warm climate with hot summers and mild winter which is similar to the southern part of Arizona. While the northern part of the Lower Peninsula and the Upper Peninsula as a whole have a more extreme climate with short and warm summers and long and cold winters.

Michigan is well known for its freezing and snowy winters and once temperatures even dropped to -51°F in 1934. Furthermore, be ready to experience tornadoes as well. Every year, around 17 tornadoes give Michigan a visit. And so do the northern lights sometimes, which you can see in the northern part of Michigan during the night.

Housing and living costs

Michigan offers some of the most affordable houses in the United States, mainly due to the state’s population decline from the year 2000 until 2010 (including the foreclosure crisis eight years ago).

In general, if we compare both capitals, Lansing is 27% less expensive than Phoenix, while housing may be up to 186% cheaper. Living costs are also lower in Detroit as well — 27% less expensive to be exact. If you are lucky enough, you may even buy a house in Detroit for less than a $1,000!

Michigan’s Economy and Employment

Widely known for its automotive industry, Michigan has a diverse economy that is also made up of other industries such as the Food and Agriculture, Advanced Manufacturing, Freshwater Technology and Services. The Upper Peninsula is very important to Michigan’s economy for its tourism, while the LP, for its manufacturing, services, and the high-tech industry.

According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2016 Michigan had a gross state product of $490.238 billion, 13th largest in the nation. As of 2017, the annual unemployment rate of Michigan is 4.6% and a lot of job positions are offered in any of the industries we mentioned above.

Things to see and do in Michigan?

Before we mention any other sights, Lake Michigan, Lake Huron, and Lake Superior are the very first things you need to explore once you move to Michigan. But Michigan has much more than just a large number of lakes, rivers, public golf courses, and lighthouses.

Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, the Isle Royale National Park, Henry Ford museum, Renaissance Center, Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, and Detroit Institute of Arts are just some of the things you need to add to your ‘To-See’ list. It doesn’t matter where in Michigan you relocate; you will always have plenty of chances for skiing, hiking, running, hunting, kayaking, biking, fishing, and of course, drinking beer from Michigan’s best craft breweries.

Moving to Michigan with a car

Before moving to your new home, you should know that Michigan has one of the most informed population when it comes to car knowledge. Since the automotive industry is one of the key industries for Michigan’s economy, there is a good chance, some of your neighbors have even assembled the very car you are bringing into their neighborhood!

After you establish your move, you will need to register your car with the MI SOS and submit the documents including the car insurance (which is mandatory in Michigan) at your local SOS office in person. Besides registering your car you will also need to transfer your out-of-state driver’s license. For a more detailed list of documents visit Michigan Secretary of State online.
