Shipping a car from Miami to Los Angeles

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

Several variables affect the cost to ship a car from Miami to Los Angeles. Vehicle make and model, together with the distance set the base price for shipping.

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.

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 Miami to Los Angeles?

Shipping a car from Miami to Los Angeles 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 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.

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 Miami to Los Angeles, 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.

To the City of Angels

Los Angeles beach

Los Angeles is one of the top cities in California that defines the west coast. Compared to Miami’s tropical climate with hot and humid summers and short, warm winters, L.A. doesn’t really have a defined climate, and seasons almost don’t exist. Once you move to Los Angeles, you will experience a repeated pattern of warm days and cool nights throughout the year, with the exception of a few rainy days.

With an estimated population of over 4 million people, Los Angeles is the second-most populous city in the US, and at the same time, it is one of the cities with the worst traffic jams in the world. For Angelenos, traffic has become an everyday ritual they have to deal with.

If you don’t want to get stuck in a bottleneck every time you go or return from work, you can use the L.A.’s Metro rail system that keeps on expanding every day. Or you can follow the example of many people who leave early for work and enjoy that free time to go to the gym or do any other activity they like.

Housing and Living Costs

Made up of 16 different regions, the Los Angeles County offers a great number of neighborhoods to pick from. Among the best neighborhoods you can choose to live in are: Atwater Village, Beverly Grove, Beverly Hills, Burbank, Culver City, Downtown, Eagle Rock, Echo Park, Westwood, Beverlywood, Cheviot Hills, and Carthay.

Just like Miami, Los Angeles, too, offers a laid-back lifestyle. But you still need to pick a neighborhood that best fits your own lifestyle, culture, and is ideally close to your work. Compared to Miami, Los Angeles is 7% more expensive, while housing can go up to 32% more expensive than Miami.

Economy and employment

L.A.’s economy is mainly driven by these industries: entertainment, technology, aerospace, tourism, international trade, law, fashion, finance, healthcare, telecommunications, and transportation. According to the Global Financial Centres Index, in 2017, Los Angeles managed to become the sixth most competitive financial center in the United States, after New York City, San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, and Washington D.C.

Home to Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox, Los Angeles is an important hub for the entertainment industry, and in 2014 was also home to six Fortune 500 companies.

Moreover, Los Angeles is the largest manufacturing center in the US. Also, the number of job openings in tech fields is expected to continue rising in the future. The city offers plenty of job opportunities in various industries. So no matter where in Los Angeles you decide to settle, you will be able to create your own business or find a job and have a few side gigs at the same time.

What to see and do in LA?

What do you do in a city where perfect weather dominates all year-round? You go visit all your favorite LA spots and make time to practice your favorite activities such as surfing, camping, rock climbing, or barbecuing.

Disneyland, Runyon Canyon Park, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Santa Monica Pier, Hollywood sign, Museum of Art, Dolby Theatre, Griffith Park, and Madame Tussauds Hollywood are just a few must-visit spots in LA. Once you check off all the must-sees from your list, you will be able to discover the true soul of the city and enjoy all it has to offer to the fullest!

Moving to Los Angeles with a car

The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has very strict rules for anyone who is a newcomer in the state. So please, do your homework and get all the important information regarding car registration, title transfer, and driver’s license.
