Smaller cars are cheaper to ship, while bigger vehicles are more expensive. Still, a sports automobile in an enclosed trailer could cost more than an SUV in an open.

Transport Type

Open auto transport is the standard mode in the industry. It is the most affordable way to ship a car. Enclosed car carrier costs more. They are specialized trailers.


Total miles matter and they set the base price. Longer distances usually cost more. The more miles your vehicles travels the less per mile.


Whether the car is coming and going to a major metro area or rural place matters. Major cities mean lower rate, remote areas the opposite.

Vehicle Condition

A vehicle that is not moving on its own power may require a winch or a forklift to be loaded. This increased the price.

Shipping a car from Boston to Miami

Moving from Boston to the Little Cuba

from new york to miami

If you ask retirees, they move because of the year around warm weather and relatively less expensive properties. In fact, retirees, also called snowbirds, flock to Florida in the thousands every winter. And many choose to stay and make it their permanent home. We speak from experience since shipping cars from Massachusetts to Florida is what we do year around.

Thousands of young people also choose Florida, in particular Miami, to make their new home. Florida is a good place to start a business as well as kick start a carrier. The state economy has been slowly improving and attracting people from across the country. If Florida sounds like a nice place to call home, we encourage you to research career or business opportunities and really consider Florida.

Where better to move to if not to vibrant and colorful Miami?

Like Boston, Miami also is a melting cultural hub where besides Spanish and English, you will hear over 80 different languages from all over the world. This major port city is also the seventh-most populous in the US with a population of over 2.7 million people.

Miami offers a laid-back lifestyle that is way more relaxed compared to the fast-paced Boston lifestyle. Its cuisine is delicious, its beaches are breathtaking, and its weather is something you will get used to sooner than you expect. Compared to Boston’s humid continental climate with freezing and snowy winters, Miami offers a year-round tropical weather.

Economy and Employment

The Port of Miami these past two decades has been called the “Cruise Capital of the World” since it is the busiest US port for both passenger and cruise lines. The economy of Miami is one of the richest in the US, especially because the city is an important center of culture, arts, media, and the entertainment industry.

Miami’s economy is mainly fueled by commerce, finance, international trade, and tourism. The Metropolitan Miami ranks second in the US for its developed tourism. Downtown Miami has the largest concentration of international banks in the US and a great number of national and international companies that are ranked as some of the largest in the nation.

Ever dreamed about working for Telemundo, Univision, American Airlines, Cisco, Disney, Exxon, FedEx, LEO Pharma Americas, Microsoft, Yahoo, Oracle, or Sony? You can apply in any of them if you still haven’t found a job.

Housing and Living Cost

Neighborhoods in the city with the third tallest skyline in the United States differ a lot from one another. We always recommend you to do your own research before picking the one that best fits your lifestyle because all of them are unique on their own. Miami has 25 neighborhoods and 40 “sub-neighborhoods”, so it might get hard to pick the right one without reading about them, researching, and asking around for any suggestions.

Even though Miami is the 8th most expensive city to rent in the US, the living and housing costs in Miami are much lower compared to Boston. According to Best Places, the living costs overall are 32.5% cheaper than in Boston, while the Median Home Cost is 44% cheaper.

Things to see and do in Miami

 What can you possibly do in a charming city surrounded by palm trees and sunny beaches? Well, anything! Among our top recommendations to visit in Miami, are Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, Miami Seaquarium, Bayside Marketplace, Jungle Island, Collins Avenue, Patricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science, Dolphin Mall, Virginia Key, and the Freedom Tower. There are also more than 800 parks in Miami that are perfect to go for a run, walk your dog, go picnicking with your friends, and so on.
