Shipping a car from Miami to Chicago

How much does it cost to ship a car from Miami to Chicago?

Several variables control the cost to ship a car from Miami to Chicago.

Vehicle make and model determines the size and weight of the car, in general. Together with the distance they set the base price for shipping any vehicle. Then the type of carrier is added to the equation and that either adds to the price or does not change it. Open usually does not change the price, but enclosed is always more expensive.

Shipping a non-running vehicle moves the price up due to additional equipment and skills. Remote areas of the country also cost more to pick-up from or to deliver. However, current supply and demand is the final contributing factor that always affects the price up or down.

CORSIA is a 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!

Miami to Chicago Auto Transport Services

Corsia Logistics provides the following services:

by carrier type: open and enclosed trailer

by time frame: standard and expedited delivery

Choosing carrier type depends on the type of vehicle you need to ship. Standard automobiles such as a Honda Civic usually go on an open-air trailer. If you need to ship a high-end 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 and deliver based on the specified time frame.

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 in the auto transport industry. Open carriers are readily available across the U.S. and this makes them efficient and preferred by private customers and businesses alike.

Enclosed auto transport is a preferred solution for sports and luxury automobiles. It offers complete protection from weather and road elements.

Enclosed carrier transport

What documents do I need when shipping a car?

Domestic transport is easy. When shipping a car from Miami to Chicago, 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.

From Miami to the Windy City


The third largest city in the United States! And more are moving to Chicago every year. Chicago Metro area has a population of over 9.5 million where, besides English, which is the official language, you will hear many other languages such as Spanish, Arabic, Polish, Russian and Chinese. It is a melting pot of cultures. This busy and densely populated city is vibrant, colorful, diverse and welcoming.

When moving from Miami to Chicago, the weather will be your biggest issue. We have to be honest here.

Compared to Miami’s tropical climate with hot and humid summers and short, warm winters, Chicago is cold and snowy. Especially during the months of January and February when snow quickly turns into ice. They do not call it the Windy City for nothing! But don’t sweat it.

When spring and summer finally arrive, you will see what the fuss is all about. Those lovely months of spring and summer will be totally worth the wait. Fall as well. Chicago is different from Miami’s Art Deco style mixed with palm trees and colorful skies. You will soon notice Chicago’s huge variety of architectural styles, both historic and contemporary high-rise buildings that attract architecture students from all over the world.

Housing in Chicago

Compared to Miami, Chicago’s neighborhoods are all distinct and you need to research properly before deciding where to move. It all depends on the area you will eventually pick, but if you decide to move anywhere near the heart of the city, expect the median prices of one-bedroom houses to be around $2000 (as of 2021).

When looking for a house to buy or rent make sure you find a neighborhood that fits your personality and lifestyle. In the end, the neighborhood you choose will define your lifestyle. Downtown, the Loop, River North, and the New East Side tend to be the most preferred areas. They are the most convenient for commuting and offer plenty of things to see and do daily.

Public Transportation and Employment

With a robust and affordable public transportation system, it’s very easy to get around Chicago without a car. Chicago is also a bike-friendly city, with a bike score of 70 and more than 200 miles of biking paths throughout most neighborhoods.

Home to 29 Fortune 500 companies, Chicago and its suburbs has the third-largest GMP and the most balanced economy in the US. You will find plenty of job openings in these areas: manufacturing, government, real estate, publishing, insurance, healthcare, food processing, and more.

Moving to Chicago with a car

As with any other urban area, owning a car in Chicago is going to be somewhat expensive. Besides gas, car payments, insurance, you will also have to pay parking costs and depending on where you live in the city, you may also need a parking permit. Keep in mind that you will need to register your car within 30 days of after you become an Illinois resident. Check all requirements with your local DMV. Before getting your car licensed, you also need to obtain an Illinois auto insurance. If you own an electric vehicle, according to the Alternative Fuels Data Center (AFDC), you can apply for a registration fee reduction.

What to do in Chicago

First, you will enjoy its social scene, the fresh produce of farmer’s market, the streets, the music, the food and beer festivals, all the great restaurants and bars. Lake Michigan and parks such as Millennium Park, Lincoln Park, Grant Park, and Jackson Park are a real gem.

With 26 miles of shoreline along Lake Michigan, you will also have plenty of beaches to visit in the summer. The 31st Street Beach, Montrose Beach, North Avenue Beach, Loyola Beach are just a few we recommend.

Do not forget to make some time for its many museums, galleries, fancy dinners, and theaters. The city is perfect for dogs as well so if you have a dog, use the time when you need to walk your pet to take a stroll down the city and discover new places on your own. Let yourself get lost in the history and sounds of the city. Bonus points if you get actually lost.
