What is the best way to ship a car 600 miles?

What is the best way to transport a car across the state lines? Whether you are relocating, buying a car out of state, or bringing it on vacation with you, there are several ways to move it. You could drive it, tow it, or hire a professional auto transport company. Each of these options has its pros and cons. In this post, let’s talk about the best way to ship a car 600 miles.

How to transport a car 600 miles?

Driving the car yourself

If you have made a cross-country trip by car before, 600 miles may seem nothing compared to that. However, 600 miles is still a considerable distance requiring you to spend most of your day on the road. Depending on where you live, road conditions, speed limits, and a host of other factors driving your car 600 miles may take you between 10 and 20 hours.

At first sight, driving may seem like the cheapest option. However, it is far from ideal. As mentioned before, you will have to be on the road for at least 10 hours straight if your average speed is 60 mph. And 10 hours do not include bathroom and food breaks, which you have to take into consideration. If you have a busy schedule and cannot afford to take a day off, making time to drive the car 600 miles will become quite a burden.

Driving the car yourself is not as cheap as you may think either. As cliché as it sounds, time is money. So if you need to take time off work, it will cost you money. Moreover, you will have to pay for the cost of fuel and food. There’s always a chance of a flat tire or speeding ticket. Not to mention that driving the car 600 miles will put unnecessary wear and tear as the miles on your odometer go up.

Towing your vehicle

Towing a car to your destination is another option. The good news is that towing a car will not rack up the miles on your odometer. Nevertheless, the drivetrain, transmission, and wheels can be negatively impacted and damaged during towing.

Similar to driving the car yourself, towing also comes with almost the same issues as driving. You might have to take the day off, spend money on food, gas will most likely cost you more due to hauling that extra load. And you will need additional equipment and skill to be able to tow the car yourself.

We have covered the difference between towing and shipping your car before. You can learn more about it in our post before you make up your mind on the best way to ship your car 600 miles.

Hiring a car shipping company

Hiring a professional auto transport company might seem expensive at first. However, it comes with many benefits that we can confidently deem it the best way to ship a car 600 miles.

Let’s explore the benefits of booking professional auto transport.

Peace of mind

When hiring an auto transport company to ship your car, you will not have to worry about taking a day off or unfavorable road and weather conditions. The car shipping company will pick up your vehicle and transport it to the desired destination. Auto shippers are also required to have cargo insurance which gives you extra peace of mind.

Time and money savings

When shipping your car 600 miles, hiring an auto transport company will save you at least a day. You will not have to take any unpaid time off or use up your vacation days. When driving, you end up with multiple costs, not always accounted for, which can end up to a large sum of money over the course of your trip.

When you choose to ship your car, you pay an all-inclusive price. The final number, which you know upfront, includes all fees and insurance. It is not a one-size-fits-all quote, however, – it will be tailored to your particular situation.

Less mileage on your car

Since you will not have to drive the car, it means that the miles on your odometer will stay the same. When shipping a vehicle, you will also prevent your car from unnecessary wear and tear. Thus, prolonging its lifespan.

What is the best way to ship a car 600 miles?

As you can see, hiring a car shipping company is the best way to ship a car 600 miles. It’s simple to arrange, saves you time and money, and gives you something no money can buy – peace of mind. To give you a more tangible example, take a look at the process of shipping a car from Colorado to Arizona, which is approximately 600 miles.

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!

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.
