How much does it cost to ship a car from Chicago to Miami?
The final cost to ship a car depends on a few variables. 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. Transporting to and from the remote areas of the country is often a logistical challenge, hence, costs 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!

How long does it take to ship a car from Chicago to Miami?
Shipping a car from Chicago to Miami, on average, takes about 4 to 6 days. Various factors could affect the shipping times, which means that 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 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 consider enclosed trailer.
Standard car shipping means that a carrier will pick up your vehicle within few days. Delivery, in this case, would be 4-6 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. You can take advantage of this premium service for an extra cost.
Open auto transport is the standard solution. It is faster and cheaper. Open carriers are readily available, which makes them efficient and affordable. It is a popular choice 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.
What documents do I need when shipping a car?
Domestic auto transport is easy. When shipping a car from Chicago to Miami, 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 drivers leaves the site.
Moving to the Capital of Latin America
The vibrant and energetic city of Miami is one of the most popular destinations for snowbirds and all who prefer a warm climate and laid-back lifestyle. As someone moving from Chicago, you will be able to enjoy not only the year-round tropical weather and relaxed lifestyle but also delicious food and breathtaking beaches. If you speak Spanish, you are in luck as the first language of over two-thirds of the population is Spanish. The majority of Miami inhabitants speak both Spanish and English, while overall, there are more than 80 different languages spoken. This major port city is the seventh most populous in the US, with over 2.7 million people living in Miami-Dade County. It also has the third tallest skyline in the United States.
As a soon-to-be Miami resident, get ready to put up with heat, humidity, and flooding. In contrast to Chicago’s cold and snowy winters, Miami has a tropical monsoon climate with short winters that are mostly dry and warm. Its summers are hot and humid, while the hurricane season runs from the beginning of June until the end of November.
Housing and living costs
Even though Miami’s neighborhoods do not differ from one another, as dramatically as those of Chicago, they all are unique. The perfect mix of palm trees, clear skies, and Art Deco architecture makes Miami one of the best places to start a new life. With 25 neighborhoods and 40 “sub-neighborhoods”, it might be quite overwhelming to pick the right place. So, take time and do your research.
Miami is the 8th most expensive city in the US when it gets to rent. Therefore, expect housing prices to be much higher compared to Chicago. The living costs in Miami are 15% more expensive than in Chicago, while the median home cost is 44% more expensive.
Economy and employment
For the last two decades, the Port of Miami has been widely known as the “Cruise Capital of the World.” It is the busiest port in the US for both passenger and cruise lines. The city is also a major commerce, finance, and international trade hub and an important center of culture, arts, media, and the entertainment industry.
The Metropolitan Miami ranks second in the US for tourism. And Downtown Miami is home to some of the largest national and international companies, and it also has the largest concentration of international banks in the States. If you are going to look for a job in Miami, consider applying in any of these companies: Telemundo, Univision, American Airlines, Cisco, Disney, Exxon, FedEx, LEO Pharma Americas, Microsoft, Yahoo, Oracle, and Sony. There are plenty of government job opportunities at miamidade.gov as well.
Things to see and do in Miami
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Miami Seaquarium, Bayside Marketplace, Jungle Island, Collins Avenue, Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, Dolphin Mall, Virginia Key, and the Freedom Tower are among our top recommendations.
Miami also has over 800 parks including national parks such as the Everglades National Park and the Biscayne National Park where you can spend time with your favorite people or just go for a run to clear your head.
Moving to Miami with your car

Please, keep in mind that before registering your vehicle, you will have to get a Florida driver’s license, purchase a Florida auto insurance, and complete a VIN inspection and odometer reading.
