CORSIA is 5-star rated car shipping 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!

Cay Liptak

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.

How long does it take to ship a car from California to Florida?

Shipping a car from California 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. 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 California 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 with that all existing damages are marked before you sign. Never sign a blank or incomplete document.

Moving From California to Florida

auto transport florida

You are probably moving because of the warm Atlantic waters. California is just as good as Florida, but does not have warm ocean waters to dip into. So, we have to be honest, Florida does have something better to offer. Sunny beaches and warm water do go together, and Florida has abundance of such combinations!

Housing and Living Costs

No matter where in Florida you move, get ready to pay the “Sunshine tax” as soon as you relocate. The living and housing costs in most cities in Florida are more expensive than any other city in the US, but not more expensive than living in California. The Golden State is the most expensive of all, with San Francisco, Santa Barbara and Beverly Hills leading the pack.

Florida’s Economy

Florida’s economy is mainly fueled by tourism and trade, financial services, transportation services, and construction also present big part of the economy. According to the Florida Chamber Foundation, Florida managed to surpass the $1 trillion mark in mid-July 2018. Tourism is a major contributor to the economies of both states. Florida, however, has set tourism records for six consecutive years. In 2016 the state welcomed 112.8 million tourists.








Activities in the Sunshine State

Located on the west coast of the United States, California is this unique land nicknamed the Golden State. While an outdoorsy person would usually go hiking, fishing, biking or skiing in California, the case would be slightly different in Florida. Beach life is the thing there. Hundreds of miles of beautiful beaches compensate for the lack of mountains.

Make sure you visit the some of the most popular landmarks, it is worth it. As such we can name a few: Kennedy Space Center, Universal Orlando, Duval Street, Mallory Square, Daytona 500 International Speedway, Giraffe Ranch, Epcot Theme Park, Florida Keys, Disney’s Animal Kingdom, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Busch Garden in Tampa,the South Beach, SeaWorld Orlando, Sanibel Island, Magic Kingdom, the Everglades National Park, and the Dry Tortugas National Park.

Moving from Florida to the Wolverine State

Often called the “Wolverine State” or the “Great Lakes State”, as of 2017, Michigan has a population of almost 10 million people and it has been steadily growing since 2010. Compared to southwestern Florida, which has a population of over 20 million people.

The Midwestern state is made up of two peninsulas: the Upper Peninsula, which is well known for its natural beauty and the Lower Peninsula, which looks like a mitten-shaped peninsula on the map.

Florida is well-known for its sunny weather and astonishing coastlines, but it is also the capital of lightning bolts and often tarnished by wild hurricanes. Humidity also reaches high levels most of the days, so when you move to Michigan this will be the first thing you notices. It is true that Michigan winters are freezing but once the winter is over, you will have plenty of time to enjoy all the greenery it has to offer during spring and summer, and all the colors of the fall.

One thing you will not miss in Michigan is diversity. Just like the multicultural and diverse state of Florida, which is a melting pot of cuisines and people from all over the world, Michigan too, has a very diverse cuisine and culture. Its residents come from all corners of the world as well with different ethnic origins, so it won’t take you long to find yourself and where you belong.

Housing and cost of living in Michigan

Due to the state’s population decline from 2000 to 2010, and the foreclosure crisis in 2010, Michigan offers some of the most affordable houses in the country. Rent prices compared to Florida are lower as well. If we compare Detroit to Tampa, for example, rent prices in Detroit are over 16% lower. Monthly rent for a 900 square feet furnished accommodation can go from $1,163 -$1,717 in normal areas to expensive ones respectively.

The cost of living in Michigan is also lower compared to Florida. The cost of living in Detroit is 3% lower than the National Average and if we compare it to Miami, it is 15% lower.

Michigan’s Economy and Employment

The economy of Michigan is made of five main categories including the Food and Agriculture Industry, the Automobile Industry, Advanced Manufacturing, and Freshwater Technology and Services. Christmas Trees are also strong parts of Michigan’s economy. According to the University of Illinois, Michigan ranks third in the US for growing Christmas trees and cultivates the widest variety in the country

If you are moving to Michigan without a job, any of the main industries mentioned above offers plenty of job openings every year. The IT sector, like in most of the other states, is also thriving, so you are in luck if you are looking for a new job position in the Information Technology industry. According to Michigan Bureau of Labor Market Information and Strategic Initiatives, the annual unemployment rate of Michigan as of 2017 was 4.6%, 0.5% higher compared to the national current unemployment rate.

What to do in Michigan? Where to begin…

Once you move to Michigan you will be offered plenty of exploring opportunities, no matter where exactly in Michigan you decide to settle. Bordered by Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin, and Minnesota (by water ), Michigan offers stunning landscapes from all sides, ski hills, state and county parks, and plenty of rivers and lakes such as Lake Michigan, Lake Huron and Lake Superior which are a must visit. It is one of the states that offers a high number of golf courses, so if you are a passionate golfer you already know what you will do most of your free time there.

Michigan is also perfect for skiing, hiking, running, biking, fishing, hunting and kayaking, just to mention a few. If you are an outdoorsy person you will never run out of things to see and do in Michigan. The state is home to some of the most popular craft beers in the country, so if you are a beer lover, maybe someday you will be able to just grab a beer and go see the Northern Lights over the Lake Superior whenever possible.

Moving to Michigan with a car

Once you move and settle, you will need to register your car with the MI SOS and submit all needed documents,including the mandatory car insurance, at your local  Michigan SOS office in person. Besides registering your car you will also need to transfer your out-of-state driver’s license. Find more info at
