Shipping a car from Seattle to Texas

How much does it cost to ship a car from Seattle to Texas?

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 is 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!

How long does it take to ship a car from Seattle to Texas?

Shipping a car from Seattle to Texas 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 car carrier. 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 one to few days. Delivery, in this case would be 7-10 days. However, keep in mind that all dates and times are estimates only.

Expedited delivery could guarantee that your car is picked up or delivered on or by a specified date and time.

car shipping dealers

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 Seattle to Texas, 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. Never sign a blank or incomplete document.

Moving to the Lone Star State


Nicknamed the “Lone Star” state, Texas is the second largest state in terms of area in the United States. With a population of over 28.7 million people as of September 2018, Texas is also the second most populous in the US thanks to its high population growth rate.

Just like the seaport city of Seattle, Texas is also one of the best states to live in the US and its name means “Friends” in the Caddo language. The population of Texas continues to grow thanks to its affordable housing and living costs, job growth, rich culture, and great atmosphere. Located in the South Central region, Texas’ landscapes are diverse and about 10% of its land area is made up of deserts. Nevertheless, no matter in which city in Texas you move to, you will experience high temperatures and dry heat.

Compared to Seattle’s Mediterranean climate with warm, mild summers and cool, rainy winters, Texas’ weather varies from arid to humid since the state has a large size and its parts fall into multiple climate zones. In the Panhandle and the mountain parts of West Texas, snowfalls are a common phenomenon. In the Northern part of Texas it snows once or twice a year while in Central and East Texas it snows once every few years.

Economy and employment

Business-friendly Texas is among the states with the highest number of Fortune 500 companies headquartered within the state. Texas reached a Gross State Product (GSP) of almost $1,600 trillion in 2016 and its GSP is currently the second-highest in the US. If the state were a separate country, its rich economy would be among the top 10 largest ones in the world.

Texas is one of the US leaders in industries such as energy, aerospace, agriculture, computers and electronics, high technology, petrochemicals, and biomedical sciences. When it comes to employment, the state offers diverse opportunities for everyone looking for a job.

Housing and Living Costs 

Housing and living costs in most cities in Texas are way more affordable than in Seattle. Compared to the city of Seattle, the living costs in Houston are 42% less expensive, while the median home cost is 76% less expensive. There are several cities in Texas where you can find a good home or apartment to buy or rent. Just make sure you do your research well in advance so you can be as well-informed as possible and avoid any unwanted surprises.

Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth. Frisco, Houston, Pearland, Plano, and San Antonio are just some of the best cities to live in Texas, but you can easily find other cities in Texas that offer a good life quality.
