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 Connecticut to California?

Shipping a car from Connecticut to California 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 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.

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 and businesses customers.

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 Connecticut to California, 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 Connecticut to the Golden State

The Constitution State and the Land of Steady Habits is one of the most influential states in the USA. Connecticut has played a key role in the development of the US Federal government. Even though some parts of Connecticut are part of the Tri-State area, the state is still considered part of the New England region.  Here are five other interesting facts about a state with a long and rich history such as Connecticut:

Connecticut is home to the first hamburger (invented in 1895) and the first Polaroid camera (invented in 1934). It is also home to the first helicopter (invented in 1939) and the first color television (invented in 1948).

If you are a bookworm, you have probably spent lots of hours in Connecticut’s public libraries. The Scoville Memorial Library in Connecticut is the oldest public library in the US. Its collection started in 1771 with 200 books.

The very first trade association in the US was founded in Naugatuck Valley.

Did you know that in Hartford it is illegal to cross the street walking on your hands?

Moving from peaceful Connecticut to vibrant California has been quite popular during the recent years.

California is currently the most populated state in the nation. According to the World Population Review, the Golden State has a population of approximately 40.02 million. The state managed to surpass the 40 million mark at the beginning of 2019. It is no wonder why California attracts so many people to start a new life in this beautiful state. It offers many great opportunities for people coming from all over the world.

If you do not know this already, the traffic jams in California are a real thing. You might even have to tweak your lifestyle to avoid them at all cost. Nonetheless, its breathtaking nature and Mediterranean climate are worth looking forward to. As someone moving from the cold and snowy winters of Connecticut, you will enjoy California’s climate to the fullest, no matter in which part of the State you decide to move to.

Here are some of the attractions you should visit in California whenever you have the chance:

Yosemite National Park

Sequoia National Park

Joshua Tree National Park

Golden Gate Bridge

Grand Canyon

Napa Valley Vineyards

Hollywood, Beverly Hills

Death Valley

Channel Islands

Kings Canyon

Redwood National and State parks


Housing and Living Costs

 Palo Alto, San Jose, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Berkeley, San Diego, Victorville, Sacramento, Oakland, Long Beach, and Santa Clara are among the best cities to live in California.  We can’t promise all these states will be affordable for you though. Compared to the national average, the cost of living in California is 43% higher. The main reason why this happens is due to its expensive housing. We recommend you to do your research well in advance so you can be as prepared as possible.

Moving to California with a car

Having your own car in California will be a huge lifesaver. The State is quite spread out and it will be hard to move around without having a car in your disposal. To register your car in California, you have to submit the required documents at the DMV office. You have to do this within 20 days after you establish your move. To find more detailed information, check out the California DMV website.
