Shipping a car from Boston to California

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

Several variables decide the cost to ship a car from Boston to California. 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!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

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 Boston 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?

We provide 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.

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?

When shipping a car from Boston 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 that all existing damages are marked before you sign. Never sign a blank or incomplete document.

What is it like to live in California?

Moving all the way from the East Coast to the West Coast is a big change. People who enjoy adventures would likely find it thrilling, but it can be challenging nonetheless. You would have to face some lifestyle changes at the very least. For example, people in California like the laidback feel of the Golden State. As some like to say – work hard, play hard. However, keep in mind that California is big. You can find all kinds of subcultures there. Career-minded people also thrive in the state, even if the life is not as structured as in Boston. In any case the Golden State is worth experiencing. No descriptions do it justice. Let us go over a few things that you may not know about it, or some places you might like to visit!

What are some facts about California?

For starters, many people do not understand that Northern California and Southern California might as well be different states. Just compare San Francisco and Los Angeles. They have their own culture, and you may notice that the food often differs too. Not to mention the weather. If you are headed for the northern part of the state, expect more gloom and rain. Additionally, California has a lot going for it nature-wise. Though people often focus on the beaches and deserts, things are more varied than that. With places like Yosemite National Park, you can experience some breathtaking vistas. Here are a few other interesting things about the Golden State:
  • California’s forests carry history. Did you know that some trees in the Sequoia National Park are as old as 2,000 years? Other places have 4,600-year-old pine trees. They have likely born witness to the rise and fall of several civilizations.
  • Wonder why California has a grizzly bear on its flag? Before its population grew, the place was known as the Grizzly State. Now it has been about 100 years since the last wild grizzly sighting.
  • Health-minded people adore the Golden State. It produces the majority of the States’ peaches, plums, and broccoli. And of course – almonds.

Moving to California with your car

Though this state has many advantages, public transportation is not its strongest suite. That makes it virtually mandatory to have a car there. So, if you are moving permanently, you would need to go through the California DMV for vehicle registration. That has to be done within 20 days of getting there. Make sure to check out the required insurance coverage, too! As for transporting your car, here at Corsia Logistics we are always ready to help you out.
