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 New Jersey to Los Angeles?

Shipping a car from New Jersey 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 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 depends on the type of vehicle you need to ship. Daily drivers 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 a carrier will pick up your vehicle within one to few days. Delivery in this case would be 7 to 10 days. 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 New Jersey 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 with that all existing damages are marked before you sign. Never sign a blank or incomplete document.

From New Jersey to Los Angeles

Are you ready for a change?

If we were to pick a city that defines the west coast, that city would definitely be Los Angeles. Seasons almost don’t exist there. You’ll soon witness a repeated pattern of warm days and cool nights throughout the year, except for a few rainy days in winter. It’s completely different than New Jersey’s rainy summers and cold winters. You will be moving from the east coast to the west coast, so, be prepared to experience a culture shock the minute you settle.


If you’re trying to get away from New Jersey’s traffic jams, you will not have it easy in L.A.. Los Angeles metro area is one of the biggest in the world –  widely spread. Traffic for Angelenos is something they have to face daily. Not counting the surrounding counties, there are almost 4 million people living in the city. The majority of them have to commute to work every day, so you can imagine the traffic situation. If you can not imagine it, just check Google Maps in a peak hour.

According to a study by INRIX, which analyzed 1.360 cities in 38 countries and five continents, Los Angeles ranked number one for the worst traffic jams in 2017. The study also found that city commuters spend over 100 hours a year in traffic jams. It is kind of terrifying.

Don’t let traffic jams scare you off though. On the bright side, L.A.’s Metro rail system, which started working in 1990, has been expanded ever since and keeps on expanding. It is nothing compared to NYC or New Jersey’s metro stations, but there is definitely hope for the future.


The Los Angeles County is made up of 16 different regions that have a variety of cities and neighborhoods you can pick from. When looking for housing, make sure you do your homework and pick a good neighborhood that suits you. Housing in L.A. will be considerably higher compared to New Jersey, so be prepared. It would be ideal for you to find housing close to work so that you can avoid this whole traffic jams situation, but if you have no way out, apps like Google Maps and Waze will help you get real-time traffic information.


Hollywood and the entertainment industry is the first option for many people, but the doors don’t open easily there. So, besides being a part of the entertainment industry you can find many other opportunities. L.A. is actually the largest manufacturing center in the US so you’ll surely find plenty of manufacturing jobs. IT jobs are also on the rise, it is not only San Francisco that has them. The number of job openings in technology-related fields is expected to rise even more in the coming years. Cafes and restaurants are always an option and in need of good personnel. It all depends on what you want and what you are willing to do to get it. One thing is for sure, hard work always pays off.

What to do in the City of Angels?

Since adjusting to a perfect weather will be a piece of cake, you won’t really have a problem adjusting to a diverse culture and the spectacular nature. If you’re an outdoorsy person, you will love it there as you will have plenty of things to explore if you’ve never been to L.A. before. Disneyland, Runyon Canyon Park, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Santa Monica Pier, Hollywood sign, Museum of Art, Dolby Theatre, Griffith Park, and Madame Tussauds, to mention a few that will keep you busy for a while.

Even if you are not an outdoorsy person, expect to become one within the first few weeks of moving there. Camping, cycling, rock climbing, backpacking, hiking, surfing, walking, barbecuing, visiting a farmer’s market and various flea markets, and plenty other activities and adventures, are waiting for you there. If you’re moving to the City of Angels with your dog, even better – you can go for a jog at the beach every day.

Moving to Los Angeles with a car

According to the California Department of Motor Vehicles, you need to register your car within the first 20 days you move there and apply for a California driver’s license within the first 10 days you establish your move. You also need to hold a valid car insurance, so keep that in mind as well. Now, you can call us and discuss your car moving options and price. Thank you!
