Shipping a car from San Diego to New York

How much does it cost to ship a car from San Diego to New York?

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!

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!

Corsia has been amazing. Their prices are really competitive but more importantly their customer service has been 5-Star. Elena followed up with me every step of the way, making sure there was no miscommunication between me & the driver. We are using them to ship a 2nd vehicle & would not hesitate to use them again!

I have recently used Corsia for long time family car with sentimental value that was moved I have recently used Corsia for shipment of my vehicle from Oregon to Arizona by recommendation from other family member who also used Corsia in the past. I am very pleased on the service and the communication throughout shipment. Ken was my direct contact and kept me informed along the move The car was picked up and delivered as communicated. I did use a enclosed mover and the driver was also clean cut professional and treated car as his own. I would definitely recommend Corsia again with the experience I have had. Thank you. T

How long does it take to ship a car from San Diego to New York?

Shipping a car from San Diego to New York 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, 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. 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?

Domestic transport is easy. When shipping a car from San Diego to New York, 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 San Diego to New York

San Diego, often called the “birthplace of California”, is the eighth-largest city in the US by population. It has over 1.4 million people, making it the second-largest in California! Moving from such a diverse city to an even more diverse city as New York, will not only be exciting, but also challenging and fulfilling. Additionally, San Diego has an ideal mild climate throughout the year. Compared to it, New York will “force” you to face some harsher and well-defined seasons. With a humid subtropical climate and in some parts humid continental climate, New York has warm summers and freezing cold winters. Are you okay with the idea of snowfalls and lots of rain all year round? If not, you will have to get used to it. Start packing your umbrella and make sure to consider getting warmer clothes! Another thing we would like to give you a heads-up with, would be the busy, always-heading-somewhere type of life of New York. It can be a lot different from the laid-back lifestyle you are likely used to in San Diego.

Housing and neighborhoods

New York is home to over 8.6 million people, more than six times the number of people who call San Diego home. NY is also the most densely populated city in the US (28,491 people per square mile). This consequently makes it very hard for people to find proper housing in sleepless New York. They say it’s sometimes harder to find housing than it is to get a job there. Our recommendation for you would be to first rent a place for 2 or 3 months on either of these boroughs: Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan, The Bronx, and Staten Island. This way you will have plenty of time to visit and learn more about each neighborhood, see what you like, what you don’t and so on. After you decide which neighborhood is a good fit for you, you can go ahead and sign a long-term lease. There’s no denying that both New York and San Diego are very expensive to live in and are way above the national average. But in general, New York is more expensive than San Diego — 25% more to be exact. Housing, which is 39% more expensive in New York, is one of the key factors that make it so expensive to live in the Big Apple.

Economy and employment

As an important trading port and home to many Fortune 500 companies New York offers anyone who dreams about “making it” plenty of opportunities. Among the best industries in NY where you could apply for a job are banking, finance, retail, trade, information technology, transportation, fashion, advertising, and real estate. In November 2017, the city broke a new record with its unemployment rate that dropped to 4.0%.

Things to do once you move to the city that never sleeps

As mentioned in the beginning, your lifestyle in New York will be lot different compared to the easy-going lifestyle of San Diego. There are a lot of things to do every single day, and you will soon join the club of people who are “afraid’ of missing out in this noisy city. The Statue of Liberty, Central Park, the Empire State Building, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Museum of Modern Art are just a few things you will need to cross off from your to-see list at first, but there is so much more New York has to offer throughout the year. There are many free nights in popular museums and theaters where you can go, and endless events and shows that you can attend for free. You just need to know where to look, and mark your calendars so that you don’t miss any.
Moving to New York with a car
If you are moving to New York with a car, you will have 30 days to register it with the New York State Department of Motor Vehicles (NYSDMV). If you wish, you can transfer your out-of-state driver’s license at the same time. Just don’t forget to get insurance because out-of-state insurances are not accepted in NY. New York will definitely offer you an unique experience. While moving there can be a bit of a challenge, we are always here to help you with your car shipping needs.
