Traveling for the Holidays

Traveling for the Holidays

I will not start by listing top ten or twenty tips for traveling around the Holidays. I am sure most of you already know what to do. The most important advice I would give though is “Don’t drink and Drive!” Just don’t do that. Avoid driving in the winter, moreover intoxicated at all and any cost. The Holidays are supposedly a happy time we want to spend with family. Time we will remember and prize in the years to come. Don’t turn this into a catastrophe.

Nowadays, time with family we often associate with traveling. For good or bad, families are spread across the country, or the world, away from each other for most of the year. The Christmas Holiday is that time of the year you expect to go home and get together to celebrate and have fun. If you live across the country, you have probably already planned your trip. You have requested the long anticipated vacation time and are now packing the suitcases. When heading out the door keep in mind one thing – there will be many like you headed across the country to stay with their families for Christmas. If you are flying, check your flights and make sure there are no cancellations. If you are driving, well then you will have to check a few more things.

Driving across the country for Christmas


Winter driving

First and foremost, prepare your vehicle. Check everything and make sure your car is in uptight condition to drive it across the country. Think about fluids, tires, breaks and heating system. One of the best options is to bring it to a mechanic to check and prepare it for you.

Check the weather forecast and the roads you are going to drive through. Also, travel early or late in the day, when there is less traffic. Although you may prefer to travel during daylight, keep in mind the roads will be busiest then.

Make sure you have first aid kit, warm blankets and food and water. You never know what might happen on the road. Lately, unexpected storms and blasts of bad weather have been reported across the country. Be prepared with necessities in case you get stuck on the road.

One good alternative to driving is flying to your destination for the Christmas Holidays. It is easier to hop on a plane and get off in a couple of hours rather than driving. Yet, if you think you will need your car while staying with your family you can easily ship it.  Instead of renting a car there, just check our auto transport rates and give us a call.

One last advice from me is to leave the car behind and also leave all the gadgets. Just enjoy the time with your family. Stay inside or go for walks, or go skiing or partake in snowman building. Whatever activities you have access to nearby – just do it. Don’t drive, walk more and do more stuff with your family. Happy Holidays!

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.

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.
