Shipping a car from Los Angeles to Philadelphia

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

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!

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.

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 Philadelphia?

Shipping a car from Los Angeles to Philadelphia 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.

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 Los Angeles to Philadelphia, 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.

“It’s the city I live in, the City of Angels, lonely as I am, together we cry”.

It’s hard to believe that someone could be lonely in the nearly 4-million Los Angeles.

The city of Angles

los angeles

Los Angeles has a population of 3.8 million. It forms the backbone of the 13-million metropolitan area with the same name. LA ranks second in the US after New York on both instances, but we’re pretty sure where you prefer to spent the winter. The aforementioned metropolitan area is formed by tiny heavens like Beverly Hills and Long Beach.

L.A. boasts a vast economy with a GDP exceeding 1 trillion by far. Apart from being the US’ largest Pacific port, the city is an attractive tourist destination and a global entertainment hub. The largest employers in town are the Los Angeles County, the Los Angeles Unified School District and the UCLA. The largest public-owned companies are The Walt Disney Co., Edison International, Inc., and AECOM Technology Corp.

The largest university is California State University, with two campuses in Los Angeles and Northridge. California State University in Los Angeles offers 129 bachelors, 112 masters and 4 doctoral degrees, while Cal State Northridge has a total of 38,815 undergraduates.

Infrastructure and Transportation

California has a well-developed road infrastructure. The Golden Gate Bridge, Arroyo Seco Parkway and four-story interchange are some of the engineering feats designed to free California from heavy traffic.


Hollywood is the heart, the soul, and the face of LA. All major movie studios are located in the shadow of the famous sign on the hill – NBCUniversal, Paramount Global, WarnerMedia, Walt Disney Studios, and Sony Pictures. Los Angeles’ influence in the theater world rivals that of Broadway. Famous venues in the city include the Hollywood Pantages Theatre, Royce Hall and Dolby Theatre, home to Broadway stars and world-renowned theatrical performances.

Disadvantages abound

L.A. cannot have any disadvantages! Well, think again.

– Traffic and parking issues are common.

– Earthquakes can occur frequently.

– The crime rate is high, and it has been growing constantly.

– Distances in Los Angeles are huge, and having a car is a must.

– The job market is bloated and people may show some attitudes because of the fierce competition.

Hello Philadelphia!

Well-developed industries in Philadelphia are health care, biotechnology, information technology, trade, manufacturing, oil refining, food processing, and tourism.

Philly is the second-largest city on the East Coast (again, after NY), a major Atlantic port, and a historic, cultural and trade hub.

The city has a population of 1.6 million, while the Pennsylvania metropolitan area has a total of 6 million inhabitants (ranking sixth in the United States). The metropolitan area has a stable GDP of around $490 billion. The largest employers are University of Pennsylvania and Health System, Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health, and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Philadelphia is the home of several Fortune 1000 companies, including PECO Energy, Rohm and Haas, and Tastykake. The University of Pennsylvania is the face of the state’s education and one of the flagships of that in the whole US. It is a private Ivy League research university with yearly admits of nearly 4.000. It is established in 1740 and has a good claim for being the oldest university in the United States. Other great universities in Pennsylvania are Pennsylvania State University, Temple University, and University of Pittsburgh.

The whole state is known for its avid sports fans and there’s a good reason for it. Teams like the Philadelphia Eagles, Philadelphia 76ers, and the Philadelphia Flyers play in their respective top flights and are fearsome hosts.

City of firsts

Philly is one of the oldest cities in the US, and as such it holds many first places! It held the celebrations of the nation’s first birthday, the first zoo, the first hospital (thus the prominent medical sector), and he Philadelphia Packet and Daily Advertiser, the first US newspaper.

Also, Philadelphia is the home of the oldest continually running theater in the English-speaking world – the Walnut Street Theater. The Walnut was founded in 1808. It has three stages and went through many renovations through the years. Today it has a seating capacity of 1 054 at its largest hall – the Mainstage, making it more than perfect to host a Broadway show.

In its long history, the stage of the Walnut Street Theatre has seen stars such as Samuel L. Jackson, Groucho Marx, and Katharine Hepburn.


Philadelphia’s main disadvantages come from the city’s size and geographical location.

– Philly has some pretty heavy traffic

– And some harsh winters

– Harsh liquor laws

– High wage taxes – 3.88% for residents, and 3.5% for non-residents.

Los Angeles vs Philadelphia

Two of the US’ largest cities and major trade ports are as different as the oceans they sit on. And, as it seems, LA has just a handful of advantages over Philly beside the climate.

The Median Age in Philadelphia is 1.0 years younger than in Los Angeles. Philadelphia housing costs are about  70% less expensive than Los Angeles housing costs.  The average commute for residents of Philadelphia is 2.0 minutes longer than it is for residents of Los Angeles. Philadelphia is 41.6% less expensive than Los Angeles. Philadelphia housing costs are 77.8% less expensive than Los Angeles housing costs. Lst, but not least health related expenses are 10.1% more in Philadelphia.
