Shipping a car from Chicago to Phoenix

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

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.

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.

Amy Nelson

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 Phoenix?

Shipping a car from Chicago to Phoenix 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. 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.

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 Chicago to Phoenix, 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 Valley of the Sun

Home to authentic Mexican food, Phoenix is a paradise for all taco lovers. But this vibrant city is not a great place to live only because it offers delicious Mexican food, low taxes, and is close to attractions such as Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon.

The capital of Arizona and at the same time, its most populous city, receives over 16 million tourists every year. Many of these tourists fall in love with Phoenix and decide to become residents and start a new life in a city located in the middle of a desert thanks to its great weather, job growth, rising economy, affordable housing and cost of living, and great educational opportunities.

In fact, Phoenix is one of the top destinations to move to in the US and as of 2017, it has a population of over 1.6 million people. Did you know that skyscrapers, historic landmarks, potholes, and rusty cars simply don’t exist in the Valley of the Sun? What you will for sure find there is well-maintained highways, huge gardens, and professional sports. Arizona also has its own time zone and does not recognize daylight savings time, so you must keep that in mind and get used to it.


 Compared to the Windy City, Phoenix has a hot desert climate that is typical for the Sonoran Desert which is the hottest desert in North America and one of the hottest in the entire world. If the heat won’t be a problem for you and you want to embrace the 300 sunny days Phoenix has to offer, then you are heading in the right direction.

Unlike Illinois climate which varies from humid continental (hot, humid summers and cold winters) to humid subtropical (with moderate winters), Phoenix has long, hot summers and short, mild to warm winters. Once you settle in Phoenix you will soon forget about Chicago’s cold and snowy weather during the winter season, enjoy the absence of snow and cold, and the abundance of sunshine. You will have to deal with a few hot months in Phoenix, but otherwise, the weather is pleasant for the most part of the year.

Living Costs and Economy

 Rent, utilities, transportation, food, and other monthly costs in Phoenix are lower than the national average and much lower than in Chicago. The living costs in Phoenix are 10% cheaper than Chicago and its median home costs are 8% less expensive.

In the past, Phoenix economy has been mainly based on cotton, cattle, citrus, climate, and copper, but nowadays its economy is more diverse. Besides agriculture and natural resources, the city’s economy is based on real estate, finance and insurance, manufacturing, retail trade, healthcare, tourism, and technology. Phoenix is home to five Fortune 500 companies and aims to become the next Silicon Valley since it offers lower cost of living and lower taxes which can attract California-based companies to expand into the Phoenix market.

Top Attractions and Activities in Phoenix

Phoenix has 189 city parks where you can spend your free time with your family or friends. It also has more than 200 miles of trails which is great if you are into hiking. The great weather is perfect for outdoor activities such as mountain biking, golfing, cycling, fishing, rock climbing, and horseback riding.

If you like, you can visit the Desert Botanical Garden, Camelback Mountain, Phoenix Zoo, Papago Park, South Mountain Park, Heard Museum, Piestewa Peak, Tempe Town Lake, Phoenix Art Museum, Hole in the Rock, OdySea Aquarium, Piestewa Peak Park, Talking Stick Resort, Castles N’ Coasters, Big Surf, Lake Pleasant Regional Park, Phoenix Mountains Preserve, and more.

Phoenix has a vibrant cultural and art scene, nightlife, and wildlife. Don’t be surprised if you encounter desert creatures such as scorpions, desert tortoises, wild pigs, coyotes. You might also spot lizards, rabbits, and Mexican foxes so have your camera handy.

Moving to Phoenix with a car

If you’re thinking that you can manage to move around in Phoenix without a car, think again. Having at least one car in Phoenix is a necessity since the bus systems and the light rail are pretty limited when it comes to their size and they are mainly functional to serve Phoenix tourists.

To register your car you have to submit all the required documents to your local Arizona Motor Vehicle Division (MVD) office in person.  Keep in mind that in order to register your out-of-state car, you need to show proof of your car insurance which meets Arizona’s required coverage amounts.
