Shipping a car from Connecticut to California- how much does it cost?

Review the main factors that control the cost to ship a car. Please, keep in mind that prices change weekly and that is why a price quote is good for one week only. Several factors play a role and it is important to understand that. The price does not depend only on the type of car or the type of car carrier. The distance matter, but it is also not the only factor. Please, check below for all factors that affect the cost to ship a car. 

Vehicle make & model

Smaller cars are cheaper to ship, while bigger vehicles are more expensive. Hence, the make and model of your vehicle affect the price.

Transport Type

Open auto transport is the standard and most affordable way to ship a car. Enclosed carrier costs more. So the type of carrier also affects the price.


More miles means less per mile. Shorter distances still consume gas and require the same amount of work, but in the end it is fewer miles traveled, which increases the price per mile.


Whether the car is coming and going to a major metro area or rural place matters. Fewer carriers travel to remote areas to pick-up or deliver vehicles.

Vehicle Condition

A vehicle that is not moving on its own power may require a winch or a forklift to be loaded. This increases the price.

Supply / Demand

At the end of the equation, we add current supply and demand. When demand is high the truck space is limited and this means higher prices.

Type of car shipping service to choose

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.
