How difficult is it to ship a car?
For the first-time shippers, arraning to move a vehicle may seem dounting. However, with a bit of preparation and an educational talk with our agents, you will find out all you need to know to make an informed decision. When you do that, you can easily schedule your transport based on your needs and budget. Corsia Logistics is one of the most reputable car shipping companies in the United States.

We want you to be as comfortable about the shipping as possible. That’s why when you call, our agents will walk you through every stage of process and will answer any question you may have. Calling is always the best way to learn more about shipping a car, get a price and of course, learn about the company itself.
Isn’t shipping a car too expensive?
At Corsia Logistics we understand that moving a car from New York to Colorado may not be a cheap service. But that is why our agents carefully track daily rate fluctuations. We want to offer you a realistic market price that will ship your vehicle in a timely manner. Auto shipping rates depend on a number of factors. Such are the type of vehicle and type of transport carrier. Of course, the pick-up and drop-off destinations matter as well. And certainly a main factor that will affect your quote is the current demand/supply situation. Plus, you can purchase an expedited service, which costs a premium. Because of how all these factors can affect the price, we always try to iterate the importance of manual quotes.
Only manually tracking these factors will guarantee accurate rates and quality services. That is why we do not utilize an automated software to deliver our rates to customers. We track the demand and supply situation manually, all day, and we deliver accurate rates via email or phone.
Shipping a car sometimes may seem expensive, but there are quite a few benefits to shipping your car rather than driving. For starters, you will avoid any wear and tear on your vehicle. There’s also virtually zero risk of being involved in a traffic accident, which means comfortably flying to your new home instead of spending days on the road driving.
All in all, requesting an auto transport service from Corsia Logistics is buying yourself a peace of mind. You book your car’s delivery online or by phone, we explain the process, send you confirmations and then you go about your day as usual.
Can I get a concrete price for shipping a car from New York to Colorado?
As we have already mentioned, there are a lot of factors, which take a role in giving you an accurate quote. For that reason we can’t just list a specific price here. Prices change, often daily. But there are a few guidelines, which you can keep in mind for every time you need a car to be shipped.
Take the route from New York to California, for example. It is usually busy, which guarantees a certain delivery time frame. However, some days or even weeks there are less vehicles to transport in either direction. This ultimately drives the prices down. This is how the supply and demand affect the prices. That is why when you think about the price to ship a car from New York to Colorado, you should consider how busy the route might be. The more vehicles there are on the national dispatch boards, the higher the prices because the competition for a spot on a car carrier is higher. Moving a vehicle is not like moving your household goods. Advanced schedules cannot guarantee a price or delivery time. Prices can change daily, affected by the mentioned fluctuations. That is why we always tell customers that prices we email them are only valid for a week.
But at the end of the day, shipping your car from New York to Colorado is easy with Corsia – we serve this route on a regular basis. We go to great lengths to make sure you and your vehicle have a positive shipping experience. You can see that for yourself by reading our customer reviews online.

Why are people moving to Colorado?
While there are plenty of reasons to leave New York, here we want to focus on what makes Colorado such a great place for your next destination. And the one thing, from which you certainly cannot escape in the Centennial state is the mountains. Whether you choose to live in the city or in a small town, the majestic Rocky Mountains will inevitably have an impact on your life in Colorado.
The state is also famous for its 300 days of sunshine. Now pair that with the popularity of a variety of outdoor activities. Can you see why the state would rank in the top ten healthiest states in the US with very low obesity rate? That makes it a great place to get away from the rather sedentary (albeit busy) New York lifestyle. In 2015 Colorado ranked 7th among all of the states for the total number of people added – 101,000 in a single year. The Centennial State has the highest average elevation – 6,800 feet above sea level – of the fifty states. Colorado has about 1500 peaks over 10,000 feet high and 54 over 14,000 high; therefore, whether you choose to live in the city or in a small town, the majestic Rocky Mountains will inevitably have an impact on your life in Colorado.
