Shipping a Car from Florida to New York Guide
Whether your relocation is permanent, or you are a snowbird returning back north, we are here to help you transport your vehicle. In our guide you will learn how shipping a car from Florida to New York works. We will answer major questions, but you can find even more information on website.
Why should I hire an auto transport company?
Driving is always a good option, if you really want to go on a road trip. The distance from Florida to New York is about 1,145 miles, and this is not a small number. This is one serious road trip that requires good planning and skills. You will have to make sure that both you and your vehicle are prepared.
If you, or your car, are not in the best condition for a long distance trip then you can ship your car and just fly in to New York. Hiring an auto transport company is always a great option that both businesses and private customers often choose. Moreover, if you have more than one vehicle, things will get more complicated and shipping becomes the most convenient option.
When driving, you have to consider the cost of gas, lodging, and food. And that can all add up quickly to the final cost of taking a road trip. Shipping a car from Florida to New York is easier, more comfortable and often less expensive than driving. The best part is that no extra miles are added to your odometer. The vehicle is insured while on the trailer, and is delivered to your door. You can use the time in a better way, such as visiting your favorite places and seeing those nearest and dearest friends you’ll be leaving in Florida.
How to choose an auto transport company?
Time spent researching and understanding how it all works is important. We are transparent and honest, and people trust us. This is how we have won many repeat customers and partners. Our customer reviews speak of that, so please go ahead and Google Corsia Logistics and read some reviews.
Now, let us begin with this – in your search for car shipping companies, you will come across the following entities:
- auto transport management companies / brokers
- auto transport carriers companies
- lead generator websites
- auctions websites
A carrier often serves only one route. Most of the carriers in the US are small companies limited to one or two regular routes. Some work with customers directly, but most of the carrier in the US work with brokers for 90 percent of their loads. The chances that you can find a carrier currently in your area, traveling to your desired destination, with an open spot for your car are slim. Many carriers do not have online presence, which means you can not find them and, moreover, will not know their safety ratings. They work closely with brokers, as their business partners, to fill their truck spots.
A broker is an auto transport management company, and it is the entity that makes sure the carrier cargo space is always filled. This is what makes auto logistics efficient. A broker company works for you, to find a carrier that matches your criteria and in the same time to fill that empty spot on the truck. This is how logistics functions.
Auction websites foster underbidding wars between auto transport companies, dragging prices down to unrealistically low rates. Accepting a really low rate means you’ll have to wait for weeks for a carrier to pick up your vehicle.
Lead provider websites often make you believe that they are either a broker or carrier, when in reality they are none. These companies collect your information only to sell it to auto transport companies. This we can define as double brokerage and it means that you end up with an unnecessary higher final price.
Whether you choose to work with a broker or carrier, make sure it is a reputable business. Consult the FMCSA website to make sure the company is compliant with all government regulations. Read online customer reviews to learn about other customers experiences. But most importantly, pick up the phone and call. Discuss your shipment and preferences. Listen to how they handle your situation. Are they really listening? Do they offer solutions that can make it easier on you?
What services does an auto transport company offer?
Services often vary by company. With Corsia Logistics customers can choose based on the type of carrier and on the time frame of delivery they prefer.
- open or enclosed car carrier
- standard or expedited delivery
Corsia Logistics offers open car carrier shipping and enclosed auto transport carrier, and in both cases, this is a door-to-door delivery. The other options customers need to consider is whether to pick a standard service or an expedited delivery. The difference is the time of delivery, and if requested in the time of pick-up. A standard car shipping service usually means that a carrier will pick up your vehicle within five business days. However, please keep in mind that all times are only estimates. Delays happen on the road often due to weather, traffic or other customer postponements.
Expedited delivery could guarantee that your car is picked up or delivered on or by a specified date and time. This, however, requires the whole schedule of the truck to play around your schedule, which naturally increases the price.
How much does it cost to ship a car New York to Florida?
It is important to understand the cost to ship a car. It is whole equation to calculate a current market price. The final cost depends on several variables that all play an important role.
- vehicle make and model
- distance and location
- vehicle condition
- type of transport
- supply and demand
Auto transport prices can change daily depending on the supply and demand situation. We track rates constantly on all national dispatch boards, and quote prices manually. At any moment the supply or demand could peak or drop, and this will change the price. Thus, this is one of the most important factors when it comes to car shipping prices.New York and Florida are both popular destinations so, it is important to request a current price that will ship your car now.
