How much does it cost to ship a car from Connecticut to Florida?
Several variables decide the final cost to ship a car from Connecticut to Florida. 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.

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 Connecticut to Florida?
Shipping a car from Connecticut to Florida 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.
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.
What documents do I need when shipping a car?
Domestic transport is easy. When shipping a car from Connecticut to Florida, 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.
From Connecticut to the Sunshine State
Known as the Constitution State and the Land of Steady Habits, Connecticut is part of the New England region even though some of its areas are also part of the Tri-State area together with New York and New Jersey. As one of the most influential states in the development of the US federal government, Connecticut has a long and rich history.
Nevertheless, in the recent years, many people have decided to move from quiet and peaceful Connecticut to the Sunshine State thanks to the great weather, low housing costs, beautiful nature, and lack of state income tax.
Compared to Connecticut’s humid continental climate with cold winters, infrequent snow and mild, humid summers, Florida has a subtropical climate with mild winters and hot and humid summers in most parts of the state, while its southern part has a tropical climate. Even though Florida is well known as the Sunshine State, don’t expect to experience sunny days year-round. As a snowbird, you will manage to “keep away” from snow, but get ready to experience Florida’s hurricane period from mid-August to late October.
Housing and Living Costs
Florida is currently the third most populous state in the US, with over 21 million people. As we’ve already mentioned, the housing costs are usually lower in Florida than in Connecticut. Although, in some Florida cities, the housing costs can be much higher. If we compare both capitals of Florida and Connecticut, overall, the living cost in Tallahassee is 2% less expensive than Hartford, while utilities are 23% cheaper. Housing costs, on the contrary, are much higher in Tallahassee. The median home cost in Hartford is $125,100, while in Tallahassee is $172,400.
We suggest you pick between South Florida and North Florida before you start looking for a place to rent or buy. Both parts differ a lot from one another in terms of climate, atmosphere, and culture. Nevertheless, you can never go wrong with picking among these cities in Florida: Pensacola, Jacksonville, Orlando, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Tampa, Fort Myers, Sarasota, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, and of course its capital – Tallahassee.
Economy and Employment
According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis report in March 2018, Florida had a GDP of $967.3 billion in 2017 and currently ranks fourth in the United States. Its economy is mainly based on trade, financial services, manufacturing, construction, transportation services, and tourism.
There are plenty of job opportunities you can take advantage of in various industries. Indeed jobs and Monster jobs are two of the best websites where you can look for a job and build a successful career.
What to see and do in Florida?
The Universal Orlando, Epcot, Florida Keys, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, South Beach, SeaWorld Orlando, Sanibel Island, Magic Kingdom, and Everglades National Park are just a few attractions you have to visit whenever you have some free time.
If you like to surf, swim, hike, or just spend time outdoors, Florida is your perfect place. Thanks to its warm weather year-round, there will be plenty of opportunities to practice your favorite activities.
Moving to Florida with a car
Getting around in the spread out Land of Flowers may be hard without a vehicle. So if you are moving to the Sunshine State, make sure to bring your car along.
As long as you register and title your vehicle with your local DHSMV within the first 30 days after you establish your move, you’ll be able to legally drive it. To read about what documents you have to prepare, check out the official Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles website.
