Which car shipping services should I choose?

Which car shipping services should I choose?

When it gets to shipping a car, there are quite a few options available to you. Sometimes the selection process may seem a bit daunting. If you are not well-versed in the variety of options offered by car shipping companies, you may be stressing over which car shipping service to choose. You are not alone!

When selecting a particular car shipping service, you should consider both – your car and your circumstances.

In this post, we’ll look at some of the most typical car shipping scenarios and suggest the best service in each situation.

Are you shipping a luxury or collectible classic car?

Classic car shipping

Shipping a luxury or collectible car requires additional care because of the monetary worth and replacement difficulty. If you own a special car like that, you understand that to avoid costly repairs you need to ensure proper care, including during auto transport.

Enclosed trailers are often the best option, as they protect your car from weather conditions, dust, and other potentially damaging road elements.

A single-car vehicle trailer can also be a good fit in case the size and modifications of your vehicle deem it non-standard. The cost for the enclosed and single-vehicle trailers is higher as they are more specialized, require higher cargo insurance, and have lower availability as opposed to open trailers.

Are you shipping a non-running car?

Shipping an inoperable vehicle requires adequate driver’s skill and equipment for loading and unloading. This is one of the cases where the reliability and professionalism of the auto transport staff matter the most. A door-to-door auto transport service will ensure your car is picked up and delivered as close to the location of your choice as legally possible.

However, for successful loading and unloading, do not withhold any information about your vehicle’s condition. This will guarantee the driver arrives prepared with the right equipment. Keep in mind that the driver’s experience and additional equipment come with a higher price tag. Besides, not all auto transport companies ship non-running cars, which makes finding a carrier more difficult.

Are you in a hurry?

Sometimes planning ahead proves difficult and shipping a car can become a matter of emergency. These are the cases when expedited services will come in handy. By choosing this type of car shipping service, you can have your car delivered on or by an exact date. The auto transport carrier will prioritize your car and the driver will plan the routes and schedules to accommodate your pickup and delivery window.

Because of the urgency and delivery guarantee, expedited shipping is more expensive than standard delivery regardless of the carrier type. This service may also be a good option when you need to ship your vehicle to a car show. However, you do not have to use it unless you are really in a hurry.

Are you shipping a mobility vehicle?

Wheelchair-accessible vehicles are rare to find and oftentimes are customized to the needs of the user. Certain characteristics of mobility vehicles such as the winch, the ramp, and height can be non-standard. This is why they require special attention from the driver and oftentimes a special carrier. If you are shipping a mobility vehicle, you need to give the relocation agent all the information regarding the vehicle’s dimensions and also send pictures, so that the most appropriate trailer can be chosen. If the dimensions of the vehicle are standard, then it can easily fit on an open trailer. Otherwise, your auto transport service provider will offer a solution that best fits your situation.

Are you on a tight budget?

When paying for services, you want to get the best bang for your buck. However, sometimes you may find yourself on a tight budget, especially if you have other important expenses to tackle. Let’s say you are moving from Michigan to Arizona and need to budget your entire move. You would be looking for the most budget-friendly car shipping services without sacrificing their quality. Open auto transport is one such option. Besides being affordable, it’s a safe and efficient way to transport your car. As a matter of fact, this is the most popular and common type of auto transport service. Open carriers cost less than enclosed auto transport and if you plan ahead, you may get a pretty good quote.

Are you shipping an RV?

If you are shipping an RV, finding a reliable auto transport company is crucial. RVs aren’t your typical cargo and require skill and experience to transport. We highly recommend emptying your RV as much as you can. Remove free-standing and free-hanging items to avoid possible damage during transport. The size of your RV will determine the auto transport services available to you. Smaller recreational vehicles can travel on a flatbed trailer, while bigger RVs may require more creative solutions.

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!

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.
