Our auto transport quotes are manual – this means we do not use a software (automated calculator) because our agents track the prices daily on national central dispatch boards and manually email you the most current and realistic rate (a major board we use is Central Dispatch). Most big companies out there use software that automatically calculates prices based on preset parameters and then automatically adds a predetermined surcharge for deposit at booking. We do not do that, our agents respond to each situation personally and discuss the rate and the situation with each customer which guarantees personal service and the best price. We often manage to find cheaper option by looking at other routes and talking to many of the carriers we work with closely directly without going through the central dispatch boards. Call us now and talk to one of our transport agents to discuss your auto transport options.

Prices depend on:
- the make and model of the vehicle
- vehicle condition (operable or inoperable)
- the distance and the location
- the type of transport (open or enclosed)
Understand the Process – Cost to Ship a Car Factors
Smaller cars are cheaper to ship; bigger and heavier vehicles are more expensive so please remember that vehicle type matters. When we have a heavier car this means the carrier has to load fewer cars on the trailer because the bigger car takes more space which reflects on a higher price. Auto transport carriers have a weight limit determined by the USDOT and they must follow this regulation strictly if they don’t want to get fined.
Type of transport – open or enclosed carrier
The type of carrier affects the cost of shipping. Open auto transport carrier is the standard method and we use it for all types of vehicles. It is widely available because of the higher demand and thus easier to schedule. Enclosed auto transport service is more expensive and most often used for sports, luxury or classic automobiles as it offers more protection from weather and road elements. The number of enclosed carrier on the road in the US is much less then open and hence more expensive and sometimes it takes a bit more time to arrange.
The distance plays a major role in the auto transport price formation. In general, shipping a car across the country will be more expensive than shipping it 500 miles. Greater distance means longer time (work hours) and more fuel consumed by the carrier. To learn more about transit time by distance please check this article.
Vehicle condition – running or not running
Whether your car is running or not this affects the cost. If the vehicle does not move on its own power then we need to schedule a special truck that can winch it onto the trailer. This is additional equipment, and extra work cost more. For some inoperable cars we may even need a fork lift to load and unload the vehicle, which additionally increases the price.
Location – rural vs. major city
Transporting to a major metropolitan area means more opportunities for the truck drivers to load their carriers completely while rural areas are often traveled to for only one vehicle. This means that if your automobile is in a rural area, away from the highway and from a major metro area the transport from and to such an area will cost you more.
The auto transport industry has its high and low seasons which affect certain routes. Winter is often the low season and customers can receive better rates, but this still depends on the route. For example, the Florida routes are affected by the snowbirds season every spring and winter and the prices are higher. In the fall prices to ship a car to Florida go up and the same happen in the spring for prices out of Florida. Texas, Arizona, New Mexico and Southern California are also affected by these price fluctuations.
Demand and Supply
Just like in many other industries the customer actually competes against other customers for a spot on the car carrier. The fact us that when the demand is high the truck space in general is limited, which means that vehicles priced higher on the central dispatch boards ship first. When the demand is normal then the supply is also normal and every vehicle ships in a timely manner. It could be confusing to some customers, but this is how the industry functions. Even if you have booked a month in advance , the higher paying vehicles will still ship first because a new, better paying load (vehicle) might become available to the trucker at any time and they would always prefer to take that load. A a good broker is the one who works hard to offer you an affordable rate and also a fair pay to the trucker because hitting this golden middle is what guarantees a reliable auto transport service.
The current price of fuel
Fuel prices change fluctuate often and this affects the final auto transport rate. Petrol price is still an important factor when it comes to auto transport and if the price at the gas stations goes up, the price for shipping a car will go up as well. That is why our agents will tell you that the quote is good for one week only and then it might change.

Standard vs. Expedited Auto Transport Quotes
Corsia Logisitcs works with carriers who also offer expedited vehicle delivery nationwide and thus customers can choose between standard and expedited service, which are priced differently. A standard rate means a carrier gets assigned between 1 and 5 days and then the delivery times depend on the distance and also on other factors such as traffic, road and weather conditions. This type of service and price is usually satisfactory for most customers, especially for those on a tight budget.
Expedited service calls for an expedited rate which is higher than the standard price. How high the price is depends on the route and all the other factors. When our agent calls they will explain how the shipping works and what can be done to expedite the service. We might need to add anywhere between $50 and $150 to the normal price in order to find a carrier immediately. By adding the additional fee we make it possible for your order to cut in front of other regularly priced loads on the dispatch board and have a carrier assigned the same or next day.

We treat our customers and our carriers with respect because we want to work with them in the years to come. Our team stands behind every action we take and customer satisfaction is our primary goal.

Was my first time moving cars across states and didn't have a clue as to how moving services worked. I was referred to Corsia and what a seamless experience it turned out to be. My initial call took less than 10 minutes; within those 10 minutes, the sales person had explained the process to me, had me scheduled for pickup within my preferred window, and had explained to me next steps that I should expect. Then, I was contacted by Randy, the driver, in accordance with what I was told to expect; the process of loading the car took 10 minutes and Randy informed me that he will be at the delivery location in two days max and that he would call me a couple of hours in advance to arrange for delivery (and this was a fairly long move: GA to WI). To my surprise, Randy called some 30 hours later indicating that he was early and, thus, could deliver the car to me within 2 hours if that worked for me. It did work for me so we agreed to meet in 2 hours and the process of collecting my car took another 10 minutes. My car arrived in the same condition it was in upon loading in GA and Randy was just a great professional who was dedicated to his job. Very seamless process for which I was much grateful...thanks to the Corsia team!–Tim
I was pleased when the truck pulled up at the destination early. Tony, the driver greeted me with a smile and had white gloves on. The car was covered with protective blankets and was able to be backed out quickly without scraping. Their low profile ramps were perfect. I was pleased with Tony's communication and honesty.I was pleased with Luke who found the truck for me on the day I requested and he was able to come close to my budget on short notice in the busy snowbird season. Thanks Corsia.–D. D.
The best experience I have received shipping a car. Car was picked up one day after we placed the order on a Tuesday morning in CA and delivered to our home Friday evening in Florida. The driver delivered at precisely the time he told us to meet him. Car arrived in good condition and drivers were very nice . My wife was skeptical at first because it was one of the lowest prices. We went with them because they were very efficient with responding to questions. –Al Kingston
