Shipping a car from Chicago to Portland

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

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 Portland?

Shipping a car from Chicago to Portland takes about 5 to 7 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 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 take 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 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 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 Portland, 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 from the Heart of America to Portland

moving to portland oregon guide

Every US city is unique in its own way. It doesn’t matter where you plan to build a new life. You can be sure that you will have the opportunity to enjoy your new home to the fullest. Chicago is situated in the center of the United States. Hence, its “Heart of America” nickname. The city of Chicago has a population of over 2.7 million and is the third largest city in the US. Impressive. And vibrant Chicago is also known for having one of the most beautiful skylines in the world.

Peculiar and charming Portland

Located on the Northern Pacific Coast, Portland is one of the most loved cities for living. It also has a reputation as an oddball. Curious? Let’s take a look at some of the things that make this city so eccentric and charming at the same time:

  1. Bikes and vegan treats

Portland is well known for its great number of vegan eateries. This city is also a biking paradise. And even if you are not a fan of bicycle riding and plant-based foods, you might very soon become one. Who knows?

  1. “Keep Portland Weird”

This is one of the most popular slogans in this city, as well as its unofficial motto. You may see it everywhere: on bumper stickers, street art, and even some random signs around the city.

To Portlanders, the phrase promotes individuality, local art, and the right to express oneself. The city dwellers are proud of their eccentricity. So don’t be afraid to embrace a new lifestyle once you move to this unusual city.

  1. Portland’s name was decided by a coin toss

Yes! You read that right. Rumor has it, if it weren’t for a coin toss, Portland, might have been called Boston.

“New England natives Asa Lovejoy, a lawyer from Boston, and Francis Pettygrove, of Portland, Maine, were trying to decide what they would call a portion of land they both owned after dividing it back in the 1800s.

They found themselves in a stalemate and couldn’t pick between their respective hometowns, so they decided to leave it up to a coin flip to determine who would have the honor of crowning the settlement with the moniker of their choice.”

  1. Mills End Park and the Guinness Book of Records

Do you know which city is home to the smallest park in the world? You guessed it! With a total area of 0.29 square meters, Mills End Park is recognized by the Guinness Book of Records as the world’s smallest park.

Located near the Willamette River, Mills End Park was recognized as an official park in 1976.

Portland is also home to Forest Park — the largest forested park within city limits in the United States. It is located just northwest of downtown and stretches for over 13 kilometers.

  1. Powell’s City of Books

The world’s largest independently owned bookstore is also located in this gorgeous city. It is called Powell’s City of Books. Make sure to visit it whenever you get a chance.

Chicago vs. Portland Climate

As you know, Chicago tends to be cold and snowy during the winter. Nevertheless, spring and summer are worth waiting for.

In Portland, however, you will get to skip cold and snowy winters altogether. Its temperate oceanic climate is characterized by cool winters and warm and dry summers.

Moving to Portland with a car

As a new resident, you will have to get an Oregon Driver License as well as title and register your vehicle within 30 days after you establish your move.

You can also consult the Oregon Department of Transportation for useful information on how to:

  • Get an ID card
  • Apply for a disabled parking placard
  • Get a Sno-Park permit
