Shipping a car from Florida to Ohio

How much does it cost to ship a car from Florida to Ohio?

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 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!

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 Florida to Ohio?

Shipping a car from Florida to Ohio 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 one to few days. Delivery, in this case would be 5-7 days. Still, 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 Florida to Ohio, 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 to the Buckeye State

With a beautiful scenery, diverse culture, art, and landscapes, as of 2017, Ohio is home to 11.66 million people. Its name comes from the Ohio River which means ‘large creek’ or ‘great river’. Part of the Great Lakes region in the US, Ohio ranks 7th most populous, 10th most populated, and 34th largest state by area.

This Midwestern state does not have a warm weather and hot beaches but its inhabitants are happy to admit that they don’t have any hurricanes, earthquakes, or tornadoes like most of the other states have throughout the year.

Compared to Florida’s sunny and warm weather, you might have to prepare yourself to face the cold, snowy, and rainy Ohio. There are almost twice as many people living in Florida compared to Ohio, so you might have a culture shock during the first few weeks until you get used to Ohio’s diversity, unpatterned seasons, and rich culture. Did we mention that the state produces over 3 million gallons of wine every single year? Ohio ranks 7th as a wine producer in the US and is often called the Napa Valley of the Midwest. If you are a wine lover, you can easily add this one as yet another reason why Ohio is a perfect state to live in.

Employment and key industries

Ohio’s minimum wage is $8.10 per hour, $0.85 higher if we compare it to the national minimum wage. The state’s unemployment rate has been going down during the past decades and as of February 2018 it is 4.5%, 0.4% higher than the national average.

If you will move to Ohio without a job, these are the top key industries where you can find a job: Advanced Energy and Environmental Technologies, Aerospace and Aviation, Agriculture and Food Processing, Bioscience and Bioproducts, Corporate and Professional Services, Distribution and Logistics, Instruments, Controls and Electronics, and Manufacturing.

There are a lot of job vacancies in IT, and if your dream is to become a farmer one day, you have found the perfect place to move to. Ohio has thousands of farmland acres all over the state so you just need to pick and choose the one that fits you best.

Cost of living and housing

Since you will be moving from Florida to Ohio, your cost of living will drop significantly. In fact, Ohio’s cost of living is lower than the national average. Depending on which city in Florida to which city in Ohio you will decide to move, you can compare your cost of living for yourself here.

The median household income in Florida is $49,426 while in Ohio it is a bit higher than that: $51,075. The monthly average for one-bedroom apartments in Florida can go up to $1,150, which is $152 above the national average. In Ohio, you will find 1-2 bedroom apartments for almost half as much.

What to do in Ohio?

The state ranks 8th in the USA with an obesity rate of 29.5%. If you don’t want to increase that percentage, you better make up your mind to not fall a victim of obesity by being as active as possible. There are plenty of things to see and do in Ohio. Lake Erie, Hocking Hills State Park, Cedar Point amusement park, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland, Columbus Zoo and Aquarium, and the AMA Motorcycle Hall of Fame are just a few places that will keep you busy during the first few weeks you settle.

If you are a big museum fan you’re in luck because there are plenty of museums in Ohio such as the Ohio museum, Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Bicycle Museum of America, Cowan Pottery Museum, Medina Toy and Train Museum, and the Merry-Go-Round Museum.

Moving from Florida to Ohio with a car

Once you move to Ohio, you will have 30 days to register your car with Ohio’s Bureau of Motor Vehicles (BMV) and transfer your out-of-state driver’s license. Find more info here.

You will need to pay the fee and submit all needed documents at your local BMV office in person. Make sure you show proof of your car insurance as will need it too.
