Shipping a car from Los Angeles to Atlanta is an easy process with Corsia Logistics. We work with a select number of auto transport carriers who travel this route daily. This guide includes key points of the services. If you have more questions, you can contact us at any time. Our team of logistics agents will explain the process, so you can make an informed decision.
What services do auto transport companies offer?
Clients usually have to make two choices, first based on carrier type and then on the time-frame of delivery.
Corsia Logistics provides the following car shipping services:
- by carrier type – open or enclosed auto transport carriers
- by delivery time – standard or expedited delivery
How much does shipping a car from Los Angeles to Atlanta cost?
To calculate the entire cost to ship a car, here at Corsia Logistics we take into account several major variables. The base price is set by the make and model of the car, in addition to the shipping distance and exact location. Carrier type also affects the price. Enclosed trailers cost more. With that said, the current supply and demand situation for any route at any time remains a deciding factor.
What documents do I need to ship a car?
To ship a car domestically, you or someone on your behalf, has to sign the Bill of Lading (BOL) at pick up and delivery. The Bill of Lading is not only a receipt but also an inspection report. Inspect your car thoroughly, together with the carrier, and mark any dings.
Los Angeles or Atlanta?
As far as long-distance relocations go, moving from Los Angeles to Atlanta does not rank among the most difficult transitions. With that said, you should still expect some changes.
While we cannot say which place is better, we can definitely compare the two!
For starters, you should not be deceived by their similar latitude. You will not be seeing harsh winters in Georgia usually, but the climate feels different. It tends to be a bit cooler, and with more bugs.
Also keep in mind that Georgia is not so densely populated, which may be a benefit for some.
If you are looking for diversity, Los Angeles is hard to beat. And of course, you cannot surf in Atlanta either. On the other hand, you may enjoy better air quality in Georgia.
We should also point out that both places have similar average salary, but Atlanta is a lot less expensive to live in.
What is it like to live in Atlanta?
Atlanta can be the perfect place to experience the mix of city life and southern hospitality. If you choose to live in the city, you may find it very similar to Los Angeles.
For instance, traffic is similarly heavy, though Atlanta has it slightly better. Still, both require a car, which we will discuss in a second.
An awesome thing about Atlanta, and Georgia in general, is nature. You can explore forests, parks and lakes. The very city also has lots of trees and does not tire you out with an urban vibe.
Moving to Atlanta with a car
When you move to Atlanta as a permanent resident, you have 30 days to register your motor vehicle and get new plates. You can do that at your local Georgia DMV.
You may notice that your car insurance is a bit cheaper than Los Angeles, but not by much in most cases.
Keep in mind that having a car in Atlanta cannot be easily avoided. Commute times can get as high as 3 hours if you depend on public transportation. A car can cut that down to an hour.
So, do not hesitate to bring your car with you – you will need it.
