Shipping a car from Chicago to Arizona

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

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 due to logistical challenge they present. 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 Chicago to Arizona?

Shipping a car from Chicago to Arizona takes about 5 to 7 days. Various factors could affect the shipping times; therefore, the 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 mainly 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 a few days. Delivery, in this case, would be 5-7 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. However, it’s a premium service that comes with a premium price.

Open auto transport is the standard solution. It is faster and cheaper. Open carriers are readily available, which makes them efficient and affordable. Open auto transport is a popular shipping method among 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 Chicago to Arizona, 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 and don’t forget to get your copy before the driver leaves the site.

Moving from Chicago to The Valley of the Sun


Cold winters drive snowbirds away from their homes and in search of warmer climates. If you are a snowbird or have decided to permanently relocate from Chicago to Arizona, we applaud you for this bold move. The Grand Canyon State is one of the fastest growing in the US and currently has a population of over 7 million people.

Located in the southwestern region, Arizona offers breathtaking landscapes and low cost of living, which in many cases can become one of the main reasons why more and more people are deciding to call the sixth largest state in the US their new home.

With so many sunny days, Arizona’s climate is a complete contrast to that of  Chicago. The state has a desert climate with mild winters and hot summers. Don’t be fooled, though! There are parts, especially in the North, where it also snows during winter. But it’s nothing compared to the freezing temperatures of the Windy City.

Economy and Employment

With a diverse, fast-growing economy, many businesses and entrepreneurs flocked to this state in search of new opportunities.

The state’s economy historically used to rely mainly on copper, cotton, cattle, citrus, and tourism.

Nowadays, the 14th most populous state offers great job positions in industries like data mining, IT, Finance, Healthcare, Business Administration, Transportation, and Government sector among others. 

However, in today’s job environment, remote work is nothing out of the ordinary, and you don’t have to limit your search geographically.

Housing and Living Costs

The living costs in Arizona including rent, utilities, transportation, and food are relatively low compared to national average and  much lower compared to Chicago.

However, the actual living costs will depend a lot on where in Arizona you decide to settle. Phoenix, for example, is 9% cheaper than Chicago and its median housing costs are 8% less expensive. The living costs in some other cities in Arizona are even lower than in Phoenix. Another good example would be Tucson, which is 14% less expensive than Chicago, with median home costs up to 18.9% cheaper.

Arizona’s Attractions

From the Grand Canyon National Park and the Grand Canyon Village, which are great for hiking and rafting, to the Antelope Canyon, Monument Valley Grand Canyon, Skywalk Havasu Falls, Oak Creek Canyon, and Kaibab National Forest, Arizona has one of the most stunning natural landscapes in the country.

With a diverse lifestyle full of energy, the Valley of the Sun is a paradise for everyone who loves outdoor activities such as skiing, swimming, hiking, camping, or barbecuing. All you have to do is make some time to get to know the real Arizona and its magnificent people.

Moving to Arizona with a car

Having a car in Arizona can be more of a necessity than a luxury. The first thing you should do once you move to the Grand Canyon State is register your car. To do so, you will need to submit all the required documents to your local AZ MVD office. Keep in mind that in order to register your out-of-state car with the Arizona Motor Vehicle Division (MVD), you need to show proof of your car insurance which meets Arizona’s required coverage amounts.
