Why you should ship your BMW

Why you should ship your BMW

Speed, power and class: the three things that best describe BMW and their vehicles! The brand remains one of the few that continue to carry the authentic German car spirit.

If you own one of those beauties, or you want to, you know their appeal. BMW offers its fans something unique. However, when it comes to transporting them across the States, driving them all the way may not be your best option. Let us explore how you can transport your vehicle safe and sound!

What is the best way to transport BMW?

Ultimately, it all boils down to two options. You can drive your car to your location, or you can trust a car shipping company to transport it for you. Some other services exist (like hiring a professional driver), but they still involve driving anyway. But which one should you pick?

Driving has some pros. For example, some consider the BMW as one of the best German cars for long-distance driving. It usually has enough power for you to enjoy the interstate. And they never skimp on comfort either. If you want a road trip along with your move, then by all means drive the car yourself. That being said, you have some considerations to make.

Firstly, do you have experience with long-distance driving? It may seem straightforward, but it actually is not. Driving can tire out quickly, if you do not have a proper strategy. That increases the risk of accidents, which is why you see strict regulation for rest periods of truck drivers.

Secondly, you have to plan your trip ahead of time. By this point you will realize that a road trip does not actually come out cheaper. You will be wearing your engine out, not to mention other parts. While this would not bother you if you are driving any old car, your BMW requires a lot of care, after all. Make sure you really want a road trip, before you decide to go with that option. But what is the alternative?

Should you ship your BMW?

One of the reasons many people go for car shipping has to do with time and money. Ultimately, when you draw the line, you save up on both. With auto transport you do not run the risk of damaging your vehicle, and you will not be putting wear and tear on it.

At first glance, booking a car shipping service seems the more expensive option. However, think of all the cash you would spend on driving the car from point A to point B. Gas is just a tiny part. Add up the daily meals and the nights at the hotel that you will have to pay when you are driving yourself. Of course, you do not even consider vehicle maintenance that will likely need to come sooner. With a car shipping company you get a quote and you know the cost. As simple as that!

Another benefit to car shipping is simplicity. With Corsia Logistics you have peace of mind that your car is in good hands.  Your BMW gets the attention it deserves and you get a door to door service. There isn’t a moment during the whole journey that you will have to worry about simply because it is all planned and executed professionally. Your vehicle will be protected throughout the process.

Since BMW is a luxury brand, we recommend you pick enclosed auto transport. That type of carrier provides full protection throughout the shipping process.

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!

Truly positive 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.
