Five 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.

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!

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!

How long does it take to ship a car from California to Indiana?

Shipping a car from California to Indiana takes about 5 to 7 days. Several factors affect the shipping time tables, which means that shipping time is always an estimate. Open auto transport is usually faster.

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 car carrier. 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 California to Indiana, 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 from California to Indiana. Why would you do that?

California has a growing economy, tourism, entertainment, sunshine, and a long coastline. Los Angeles is a dream come true for many people, but is everything really that perfect? Are there hidden defects?

Los Angeles

Los Angeles is the largest city, state capital, and center of the largest metropolitan area in California. L.A. is the second-largest city in the US with a population of a bit over 4 million. Its area ranks second with a population of 13 million and it includes some wonderful places such as Beverly Hills and Long Beach.

With a GDP of over 1 trillion, Los Angeles ranks third in the world, second only to Tokyo and New York, and far surpasses most countries in the world. L.A. is a heaven when it comes to spending quality free time! Parks, beaches, sports teams, and entertainment venues provide unique opportunities to both locals and tourists!

The great outdoors in California are in fact great!

One of the most famous outdoor spaces is Yosemite National Park. Then we have one of the hottest and driest places, the Death Valley, and then one of the “tallest” that is the Redwood parks that protect some of the tallest trees on Earth, as well as prairies. Muir Woods is the closest to San Francisco, and the rest of the tall trees are further north. So, if you are in the southern parts of California you will have to go north.

Los Angeles takes pride in a fine plethora of parks, enhanced by their view of the Pacific Ocean. If you’re a keen outdoor and outgoing person, you’d certainly love Palisades Park and Tongva Park. They provide fine options for activities at just a stone throw away from the beach!

Taking into account the fine weather, the great outdoor spaces, and close proximity to the beach, one might understand why the people of L.A. love to spend time outside. There are a few popular biking trails, whether located in the heart of the city or near the beach. Be sure to visit Marvin Braude/Pacific Coast Bike Path, Griffith Park, Elysian Park, and Mount Wilson. They also provide excellent jogging conditions by either their scenic views or their close proximity to the heart of L.A. The parks are also full of baseball fields and basketball courts.

Are there shortcomings in California?

Yes, there certainly are shortcomings and problems in the state of California. Some have been obvious for a while, while others are just taking the center stage.

Traffic and parking problems are common in all big cities, but Los Angeles and San Francisco are some of the worst. Earthquakes can be common and unexpected throughout the state. The crime rate is high and has been getting worse in the last few years.  The neighborhoods of Los Angeles are spread far away and public transport is almost non existent in suburbs. Then we all know about the high cost of living in general, and the rising house prices. Last, but but not least we have the labor market swelling, which leads to people showing some attitudes because of fierce competition.

Are you read for peace and affordability?

Indiana is a mid-sized Midwestern state, known for its industry, culture, and sports teams. Indiana borders Michigan to the north, Ohio to the east, Illinois to the west, and is partially separated by the Wabash River.

The capital and largest city is Indianapolis, with a population of less than 900.000. Together with Carmel, Fishers, and Anderson, it forms the Greater Indianapolis Metropolitan Area. Together they have more than 2 million residents.

Indiana’s GDP is close to 400 billion U.S. dollars. Indianapolis contributed approximately $140. Traditional industries include finance, insurance, real estate, leasing, and leasing. Together with Fortune 500 companies Anthem, Eli Lilly and Company, and Simon Property Group, they form the backbone of the local economy and make Indiana (and Indianapolis) a place of concern.

Indiana University-Purdue is the state’s top educational institution. It offers more than 200 courses, among which the most prestigious courses are medicine, dentistry, and law. It currently has nearly 30.000 students.

The Crossroads of America

The major U.S. Interstate highways in Indiana are I-64, I-65, I-265, I-465, I-865, I-69, I-469, I-70, I-74, I-80, I-90, I-94, and I-275. The various highways intersecting in and around Indianapolis, along with its historical status as a major railroad hub, and the canals that once crossed Indiana, are the source of the state’s motto, the Crossroads of America.

Healthcare system in the state

Several high-profile hospitals in Indiana include Eskenazi Health, St. Vincent Indianapolis – Hospital & Health Care Center, and IU Health University Hospital.

Free time activities

Indianapolis is a culturally rich city, most prominent in the visual, performing arts, and literature. Massachusetts Avenue is home to a large number of theaters, shops, and restaurants.

Don’t miss the Indianapolis Arts Center, Indiana Theater, Old National Center, and Indianapolis Children’s Museum.

Indiana is very proud of its elite sports team. Indiana has more NBA players per capita than any other state. The most famous team in the state are the Indiana Pacers. But the Indianapolis Colts of the National Football League can rival them in popularity.

Motorsports are a thing, too. After all, we are in the Midwest! INDYCAR and United States Auto Club are both based in Indianapolis, and the state is the home of the Indianapolis 500, too!

There are a few cons of living in this calm, yet lively place.

– Crime is rather high in some places.

– Wages are lower than some neighboring states, but improving.

– The state is very, very conservative, which may be unpleasant for some people.

– The winters could be colder than the rest of the country.

Los Angeles vs. Indianapolis

Los Angeles has the great climate and beaches, as well as large labor market and movie industry, however, Indianapolis is cheaper and affordable. A lot cheaper. Indianapolis is 51.8% less expensive than Los Angeles. Indianapolis housing is 79.2% less expensive than Los Angeles. Health-related expenses are 2.9% less in Indianapolis. Add to this the far better commute time and the lower average age, and the winner is crystal clear.
