Shipping a car from Texas to Seattle

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

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.

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 Texas to Seattle?

Shipping a car from Texas to Seattle takes about 5 to 7 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 Texas to Seattle, 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 to the Emerald City

Leaving the Lone Star State behind can be hard. But a new and better life expects you in Seattle. Situated on the west coast of the US, Seattle is the largest city in the state of Washington with a population of 725,000 people. This seaport city is well known for its tolerance and liberal views, as well as for being a food and coffee heaven. All bookworms and technology lovers are also welcome in America’s Queen City.

Compared to Texas arid and humid weather, Seattle has a Mediterranean climate with warm, mild summers and cool, rainy winters. Summers in Seattle are relatively dry, while, in general, Seattle’s rain is more like a mist that doesn’t necessarily require an umbrella. Most people with umbrellas in Seattle are tourists. So if you want to avoid looking like one, just leave your umbrella at home.

Housing and Living Costs

The cost of living in Seattle is more than 20% above the national average. If we compare Seattle to Houston, for example, according to Budget Direct, rent prices in Seattle are 49.45% higher than in Houston. When it comes to utility costs, they are almost the same but slightly higher in Seattle.

The city of Seattle is made up of many neighborhoods that differ quite a lot from one another, and picking the right neighborhood for you and your family can be a bit hard at first. Once you do a bit of research on your own and select a few neighborhoods, start looking for apartments to rent or buy. Among the most popular neighborhoods are Ballard, Capitol Hill, Fremont, Greenlake, Issaquah Highlands, Magnolia, Phinney Ridge, Queen Anne, Wallingford, and West Seattle.

Economy and Employment

Driven by various old industrial companies, and new companies in the field of Internet and technology, service, design, and clean technology, Seattle’s economy has only become stronger after the Great Recession. The Port of Seattle, which is the 8th largest port in the US, is also one of the key factors behind the city’s rich economy.

In 2010, the city government planned to make Seattle the first “climate neutral” city in North America with the clear goal of releasing 0% gas emissions by 2030. Home to five Fortune 500 companies in 2017, there are plenty of other large companies headquartered in this city such as Microsoft, Amazon, Starbucks, Nordstrom, Costco, Expedia, Expeditors International, Boeing, Paccar, and Weyerhaeuser.

Seattle attractions

Do you love to swim, bike, snowboard, ski, surf, hike, or simply stroll around the city to find popular and unpopular attractions on your own? Seattle is the perfect place for that. As soon as you have some free time, make sure to visit the Space Needle, Bill Gates House, the Seattle Great Wheel, Original Starbucks, Pike Place Market, and museums such as Experience Music Project (EMP) Museum, the Museum of History and Industry, and the Seattle Art Museum.

If you’re lucky, you might even find housing near these parks: Gasworks Park, Madison Park, Discovery Park, and Magnuson Park. In any case, all of them are worth a visit.

Moving to Seattle with a car

There are two ways you can register your vehicle in Seattle: by sending all the paperwork by mail or by submitting the required documents in person. As long as you submit them within 30 days after establishing your move to Seattle, you’ll be fine. Unlike in some other cities, you won’t need to have a car insurance to register your car. Although, eventually, you will have to get it insured if you don’t want to get fined. For more information, visit the official website of the Washington State Department of Licensing.
