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.

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!

Shipping a car from Sacramento to San Diego - How long does it take?

Shipping a car from Sacramento to San Diego could be done in 1 or 2 days. Same day service is also an option. 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, 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 that a carrier will pick up your vehicle within few days. Delivery, in this case would be 5-7 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 from Sacramento to San Diego?

When shipping a car from Sacramento to San Diego, 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 away from Sacramento

Sacramento, California’s state capital, has seen an influx of population in the recent years. In fact, in 2016, it was the fastest-growing big city in the state, in large, thanks to migrants from the Bay Area. Affordability is one of the top reasons why people and businesses alike have been making their way to California’s capital. The welcoming attitude of the city’s government officials has encouraged various Silicon Valley and Bay Area companies to open offices in Sacramento.

But despite population growth and all changes it brings, Sacramento preserves its laid-back feel. And this one reason many young people decide to move away. This often requires people to either travel long distance or ship their car with a car shipping company like us. So, do you need to move a car from Sacramento all the way to San Diego. How do you handle this task? Let us help you understand the process.

Living in San Diego

San Diego is often referred to as the “birthplace of California” – it was the first site on the West Coast visited by Europeans. Since then the city grew to become the eighth largest in the United States. Today, a little over 1,400,000.00 people call San Diego home.

The city boasts one of the top ten best climates in America, picture-perfect beaches, scenic hikes and San Diego Bay – one of the best natural harbors on the west coast. Unlike in Sacramento, living in San Diego tends to be on the expensive side. The average cost of living in the city is 33% higher than the national average. And, according to some estimates, an average San Diego resident spends almost 65% of their income on housing, utilities, and commuting. On the bright side, you can get fresh, locally grown produce at competitive prices that won’t break your bank, all year round!

The city also cares for its environment. Recycling is enforced and water is strictly conserved in San Diego. Make sure to familiarize yourself with local rules and regulations regarding both. And if you are moving with a dog, you’ll have to make sure your pet is licensed and vaccinated within 30 days of establishing your move.

Driving in San Diego

If you are new to San Diego, make sure to learn the city’s layout – it’ll help you navigate through traffic jams. Remember that most even-numbered freeways run east-west and odd-numbered – north-south. Various neighborhoods follow the alphabetized city plan with streets in one area named according to some theme – birds, gems, authors, etc. – in alphabetical order.

San Diegans are not exactly the world’s best drivers, so you’ll have to brush up on those defensive driving skills. Unannounced lane changes, speeding, sudden stops and fender-benders are prevalent on the city’s roads. Don’t forget to familiarize yourself with San Diego parking regulations. Depending on where you go in the city, parking may be an issue, and parking citations – an untimely expense.
