Why shipping a car is a good idea?

Why shipping a car is a good idea?

Cars have become an essential element in our lives, and driving is part our daily routine. Today, a car is one of the most convenient modes of transportation in the US. But it can also become a logistical challenge, when relocating across the country. When you move long distance there are hundreds of things to keep in mind.

Embarking on a long-distance trip could only make things unnecessarily overwhelming. There is a better solution than driving – shipping a car.

Below are our top three reasons why shipping a car is a good idea!

Shipping a car means safety

The desire to drive everywhere is a big part of the American culture, and driving across the country sounds like an exciting adventure to many. Just the idea of an open road, navigating the spiderweb of highways, passing canyons, ranch-lands, mountains, and charming small towns, singing along to our favorite tunes, makes our hearts beat faster.

However, cross-country travel has its risks. There are reckless drivers, wildlife, and weather conditions that all seem to conspire against even the most responsible drivers. That is why, if you have to travel more than 200-300 hundred miles, it is safer to ship your car.

Shipping your car will save it from unnecessary wear and tear, possible breakdowns or even accidents.

Depending on your budget, and the level of protection you prefer, you can choose between open or enclosed transport.

Auto transport saves time

Driving a car across the country will take days. A thousand miles might not seem so bad on the map, but once you hit the road there will be mountains, deserts, and seas to cross. Literally!

Moreover, when you start adding in the time for food and rest stops, a whole new time frame builds up. Somewhere along the road, you may find yourself stuck in traffic or get a flat tire, which will inevitably add to your travel time.

Spending days on the road, when you could use this time to take care of other important tasks or just enjoy your family and friends, doesn’t make much sense.

  • To save time and stress less, hand your car key to a car shipping company.
  • Hop on a plane, and receive your vehicle at the new destination.
  • If you need your vehicle delivered on or by an exact date, request expedited shipping.

It is important to keep in mind that all dates in auto transport are estimated. As you understand, being on the road is unpredictable.

Car shipping is affordable

Perhaps you think it is expensive to ship a car. Now think about all the expenses associated with driving – gas, lodging and food, as well as any possible car failures. And then compare that to your car shipping rate.

Expenses can add up quickly when you are on the road and you never know what emergency may arise. Factor in the time off work, especially if you are out of paid vacation days.

When you request a car shipping quote you get an all-inclusive price, and a door-to-door service. All taxes and insurance are included in the price.

Several variables decide the final cost to ship a vehicle. Such are car’s make and model, the distance and the type of carrier, as well as whether the car is running or not and has any modifications. However, the current supply and demand is the final deciding factor. Auto logistics is a dynamic industry and only current market price will ship a car in a timely manner. However, if you are not in a hurry choosing to work with a lower budget is always an option.

Avoid the stress of driving. Shipping a car is a good idea!

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 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 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

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!

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.

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.
