Shipping a car from Los Angeles to New Jersey

How much does it cost to ship a car from Los Angeles to New Jersey?

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.

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.

Amy Nelson

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 Los Angeles to New Jersey?

Shipping a car from Los Angeles to New Jersey takes about 7 to 10 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 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.

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 Los Angeles to New Jersey, 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 La La Land to the Garden State

One of the original 13 states, New Jersey is known as the Garden State. Do you know why? Because of the fact that this state is also home to hundreds of gardens. Along with those, it has additional 10,300 farms, and 730,000 acres of farmland. To top this off, the state of New Jersey is called the “Diner Capital of the World”. It is also known for corn, blueberries, and tomatoes.

Many people from all over the States choose New Jersey to start their new life. But why do so many prefer it to New York? Because they want to avoid the heavy living expenses there!

In order for you to find your place in this new state, we have compiled a short guide that will help you get to know New Jersey better. Let’s get right into it!

Lifestyle changes when moving from LA to New Jersey

Moving away from Los Angeles is not easy. As it is one of the top cities defining the East Coast, people there get easily attached to it. Why? They enjoy its warm days and cool nights all year round. On top of that, it encourages a laidback lifestyle and entrepreneurial spirit. Some have said that the city of LA is a place to reinvent yourself. In other words, you can get inspired to strive for the best version of yourself every day.

Contrast that with busy New Jersey. Just look at its completely different lifestyle there. For instance, the day to day life is more fast-paced and focused towards reaching a certain goal, be it personal or professional. That leads to a more structured life.

Employment and Key Industries

LA is the largest manufacturing center in the US. With that said, the majority of job openings are in a technology-related field. On the contrary, the economy of New Jersey is mainly driven by industries like tourism, pharmaceuticals and finances. But you can also find professional development in telecommunications, publishing and other service-related fields. As a whole, the state of New Jersey offers plenty of well-paid job opportunities in various sectors, especially in educational facilities.

Nevertheless, it is not all bad. The moderate temperatures during spring and fall make it a wonderful place. That also means those seasons are perfect for outdoor activities of your choice.

Comparing both populations

Being the second-most populated city in the US, Los Angeles is tough to beat. After all, it has more than 4 million people there. Conversely, New Jersey is the 11th most populated. Though we should not that since New Jersey is the fourth-smallest state, it is the most densely populated in the US. According to World Atlas, New Jersey has 1,210 persons per square mile.
