Shipping a car from Hawaii to Florida

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

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 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.

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 Hawaii to Florida?

Shipping a car from Hawaii to Florida takes 3 to 4 weeks. 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. 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.

car shipping dealers

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.

A paradise lost, for another ..

If paradise had a name, then it certainly would be called Hawaii. The island archipelago is the only state located outside North America, nearly 2.000 miles into the Pacific Ocean. Many see this is as a major positive, but it certainly has its disadvantages.

Geography and population

Composed 137 volcanic islands, Hawaii is the eighth-smallest in area and the 11th-least populous, but the 13th-most densely populated, with 1.4 million residents. Most of them live on the island of Oʻahu and its capital Honolulu. Hawaii is one of the few US states that have previously been a nation.


Hawaii made a successful transition from plantation-based economy to a global tourist attraction. Still, agriculture plays a major part in the state’s economics. Hawaii is one of the biggest exporters of honey, pineapples, and sugarcane. The largest employers in the state are Altres Industrial, Kapiolani Medical Ctr, and Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard.

In 2019 Hawaii was visited by more than 10 million tourists. That number dropped to around 2.7 million during the COVID – 19 pandemic in 2020, but is expected to increase once more in 2021 and beyond.


Hawaii fields several universities, with the majority of the being located in Honolulu. The largest one is The University of Hawaiʻi system and is estimated to have just above 50.000 students. Other universities include Honolulu Community College, Kapiʻolani Community College, the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, Chaminade University, and Hawaiʻi Pacific University.

Hawaii is also the home of The Pacific forum, one of the largest Asia – Pacific policy research institutes in the world, as well as the East–West Center, and the Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies.


Due to its distant proximity to the US mainland, Hawaii has no professional sports teams. However, fitness and powerlifting flourish! The island state is home to the Great Aloha Run, Honolulu Marathon, and the Honolulu Triathlon. Ironman Hawaiʻi was first held in Honolulu, too! In 2004 Men’s Fitness magazine proclaimed Honolulu the fittest city in the United States. And when you go to the beach you can be certain that this hasn’t changed.

Parks and recreation

The whole state of Hawaii is very close to nature. There are several state parks and protected areas that are serve as main attraction centers for tourists. The largest and most popular ones include Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park, Kaloko-Honokohau National Historical Park, Puukohola Heiau National Historic Site, and Ala Kahakai National Historic Trail.


Living so far away from the continent is a huge disadvantage on its own. Nature also has laid down its traps in the form of huge ocean waves, dangerous currents, reef cuts, as well as box jellyfishes and Portuguese Man-of-War. The bugs can be a problem, too.

The entire geography of Hawaii and Honolulu leads to a rather heavy traffic and a lot of traffic jams. Last but not least, the climate that so many love can turn out to be a problem. The weather is always hot and humid, and you virtually have one season.

Hawaiians pay the highest taxes per person in the US. Also, tourists pay general excise tax and hotel room tax.

Miami and Honolulu head to head

These two beach heavens are very different. Miami is larger by nearly 100k residents (450 to 350 thousand). Median income, utilities, and average home price are double in the Hawaiian capital. Housing and groceries are pricier, too. Transportation price and commute time are higher in Miami.


Florida’s long coastline (actually the longest coastline in the United States), emerald waters, endless beach parties and quiet retreats can attract almost anyone from teenagers to elders. But Florida is not only a tropical climate, parties, celebrities and hot people.

Florida has a large population. The state capital is Tallahassee, the largest city is Jacksonville, but the largest metro is the Miami metropolitan area. Therefore, the country has many points of interest


Florida a giant cannot be exaggerated. The state has a population of 21 million and the total economy is estimated at $1.0 trillion-ranking fourth in the United States. The largest employment sectors are trade, transportation and utilities. Government; professional and commercial services; education and health services; and leisure and hospitality. Many coastal cities include some of the wealthiest per capita areas in the United States.


We can write books about what to do in Florida. The tourism industry has provided employment opportunities for 1.4 million people. In addition to countless beaches, Florida also has several eye-catching amusement parks, such as Walt Disney World, Universal Studios Orlando, Sea World Orlando, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, water parks and golf courses.


Miami is the center of the state’s largest metropolitan area. It ranks seventh in the United States and consists of Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Pembroke Pines, West Palm Beach, Hialeah, Hollywood and Boca Raton.

Kennedy Space Center

Also known as NASA Launch Operations Center, it is one of the main launch centers for human spaceflight. This is the launch site for the Apollo, Skylab, and Space Shuttle programs, next to the Cape Canaveral Space Force Station. The Kennedy Space Center has more than 700 facilities and gathers aerospace experts from all over the world!


There are 12 universities in Florida, 4 of which have an enrollment rate of more than 50.000. They are University of Central Florida, Florida International University, University of Florida and University of South Florida.


As you might expect, there are plenty of entertainment venues, including sports. The state has three NFL teams, two NBA teams, two MLS teams and two MLB teams. NASCAR is headquartered in Daytona Beach, while the American Association of Professional Golfers is located in Palm Beach.


Given all its advantages, before moving to Florida, make sure you should consider some serious disadvantages.

Remember: hurricanes and extreme heat and humidity can have an impact.

The state is very flat, without mountains and valleys.

Compared with other states, there are more tourists and part-time residents.

The insurance cost you have to pay is higher than in other parts of the country.

Florida has bigger bugs, many snakes and crocodiles.
