Shipping a Car from New York to Boston

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

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!

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.

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

Shipping a car from New York to Boston takes 2-3 days at most. 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.

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 New York to Boston, 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 Walking City


Founded in 1630, Boston is one of the oldest cities in the United States, which explains the city’s rich history and culture, and its European spirit. Among some of the Historical Outings are the Boston Tea Party Ships & Museum, Paul Revere’s House, and Longfellow’s Wayside Inn — the oldest inn in the States that is still operating.

With a population of 687,584 in 2017, Boston is the capital and most populous municipality of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the United States. Boston’s humid continental climate is similar to New York with warm and humid summers and cold and stormy winters. July is the hottest month, while the coldest is January which is filled with snow most of the time.

Economy and living costs

Boston is one of the top 30 most powerful cities in the world in terms of economy. The Greater Boston metropolitan area is ranked in the sixth position in the United States, and in the 12th position worldwide. The city attracts over 350,000 college students from all over the world with its top colleges and universities which play a significant part in Boston’s booming economy.

Compared to the national average, living in Boston can be 47% more expensive. But since you are going to move from New York, you are already used to high costs of living, and moving to Boston will actually be a relieve.

Overall, Boston is 6% cheaper than New York with 14% cheaper housing. The average rent for a studio apartment in Boston is $2,318  while the median home value is $569,500. Among some of the key factors that define the cost of living in Boston are housing costs, healthcare, utilities, and transportation.

Housing and neighborhoods

Finding housing in Boston can be really tough given how short its supply of homes for sales is. Finding a good place to rent is no piece of cake either. Avoid looking for housing during the month of September as the real estate market in Boston is based on the school-year schedule and prices can go pretty high starting September 1st.

July and August are two of the best months if you want to find great apartment deals. Just make sure you find a great neighborhood that fits you first because that’s where you will spend most of your free time. Picking a neighborhood that is close to your work would be ideal, to avoid commuting altogether. Beacon Hill, South Boston, and Back Bay are some of the best neighborhoods you can pick from.

Job market and unemployment rate

Often called “The Hub”, Boston is literally a hub of job opportunities especially in higher education, technology, biotech, life sciences, finance, and the medical sector.  If you are moving to Boston and will soon be on the lookout for a new job, check out the Boston Career Center and Monster — some of the best sites to apply for jobs. There are plenty of startups offering job positions in different areas every day. It is after all the home of Harvard University, MIT, Boston University, Liberty Mutual, Massachusetts General Hospital and many more.

As of November 2017, Boston unemployment rate is only 3.0%, way lower compared to the national average, and 1% lower compared to New York.

Boston attractions

Looking very much like a European city, Boston is packed with things to see in almost every corner and offers plenty of opportunities for weekend getaways thanks to its favorable location. Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Cape Cod, and Newport are just some of the best spots you can pick for short weekend, trips preferably during the summer season.

Lakes and mountains of New Hampshire and Vermont, Boston Harbor Islands, and the rocky coastlines of Maine are also a must visit and easily accessible. Make sure not to miss Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, the Freedom Trail, Boston Public Garden, Quincy Market, and the Skywalk Observatory once you settle too.

Moving to Boston with a car

If you are going to move to Boston with your car, you need to register it with the RMV within 30 days after you become a resident. Depending on the type of vehicle you own, you may also need to transfer your certificate of title to Massachusetts. Just like in New York, the car insurance is mandatory in order to register your car, and it is attached to your licensed plate, so plan accordingly. As per your out-of-state driver’s license, you need to transfer it as soon as you can once you move to Boston, as well as visit your local Massachusetts RMV office in person to submit the needed documents and turn over your out-of-state license.
