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!

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 Texas to Chicago?

Shipping a car from Texas to Chicago takes about 3 to 5 days. Various factors could affect the shipping times and this means that shipping time is always an estimate. Open auto transport is usually faster. However, please keep in mind that all dates and times are only estimates.

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.

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 California to Florida, 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 from Texas to the Heart of America

Chicago ranks as the third largest city in the US with a population of over 2.7 million. Its nickname comes from the fact that it is a major transportation hub. Often called “The city by the Lake” (referring to the Lake Michigan), or the Windy City, Chicago is a busy, densely populated city, with arguably the most beautiful skyline not only in the United States but in the entire world.

Moving from Texas to Chicago brings changes in many aspects. If you come from Houston or Dallas, the big city scene will not surprise you. What may challenge you the most is the weather. There will be plenty of snow for you to tackle in Chicago.

Compared to the humid subtropical climate in most parts of Texas, Chicago weather gets very cold and snowy during the winter (especially in January and February). But once the cold season is over you get to enjoy warm blooming spring and hot summer.

Chicago housing and living costs

As far as cost of living goes, Chicago tends to be on the more expensive side. However, keep in mind that prices change dramatically depending on the neighborhood. Also, the difference in costs depends on which city in Texas you are moving from.

To give you concrete numbers, check the following examples. If you are moving from Dallas for example, you will find Chicago’s cost of living 16% more expensive, with housing over 40% more expensive. But if you are moving from Austin, Chicago will be 6% less expensive, with housing up to 30% cheaper.

Chicago’s neighborhoods differ a lot from one another, so we would recommend you to do your homework in advance and pick a neighborhood that best fits your lifestyle.

Top sights in Chicago

With a vibrant social scene, music festivals, great food and, of course, beer, Chicago will not disappoint you when it comes to leisure. The city boasts over 26 miles of shoreline, which means you will have plenty of fascinating beaches to choose from.

Among the top sights, you should visit are the Willis Tower, Millenium Park, Navy Pier, Cloud Gate, Shedd Aquarium, the Art Institute of Chicago, and its magnificent parks such as Millennium Park, Oz Park, Lincoln Park, Indian Boundary Park, Grant Park, and Jackson Park.

Moving to Chicago with a car

Being a driver in Chicago can be more expensive if you compare it to Texas. Gas, car insurance, car payments, as well as parking permits carry a heftier price tag in the Windy City. Once you settle in Chicago, you will have 30 days to apply for Illinois license plates. To register your vehicle in Chicago you will need to purchase your Illinois car insurance. If you are planning on keeping your car within the City of Chicago limits, you will need to purchase and display a City Vehicle Sticker.
