Shipping a car from New York to Colorado Guide


The key to a low stress moving process is planning and understanding. You’ll need to make a list of utility and service companies that need to be notified of your upcoming move, pack your entire New York life in boxes, and possibly hire a moving company. Furniture and household goods are not the only things you’ll have to move. Once in Colorado, you’ll need your wheels to get to work, run errands, and get out to explore and do fun things in your free time. Unless you’ve decided to drive your four-wheeler yourself or tow it behind a moving truck you’ll need to hire a car shipping company. Why people choose not to drive and instead hire a transport company? There are quite a few benefits to shipping your car: no wear and tear on your vehicle, 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.

At Corsia Logistics we understand that moving a car from New York to Colorado may seem as an expensive service. That is why our agents carefully track daily rate fluctuations to offer you the best rate possible. New York to Colorado car shipping rates depend on a number of factors such as, type of vehicle, type of transport carrier (closed or open transport), pick up/drop off destination location, expedited or not service and certainly a main factor that will affect your quote is demand/supply situation.

The cost to transport a vehicle is a mixture of fluid factors and that is why we constantly repeat that only manually tracking these factors will guarantee accurate rates and quality service. That is what we do. We do not utilize a calculator / software to deliver our rates to customers. We track the demand and supply situation manually, all day and we deliver accurate rates that will ship a vehicle in a timely manner.

Short distance transport tends to cost more per mile compared to a long distance trip. It works just like when buying in bulk. Long distance trips are done with large trucks, hauling 7-9 cars at once, compared to the 1-2 cars on a local trip. In order for the truck drivers to profit from short distance deliveries, they would need to make significantly more trips. The process of loading and unloading multiple times leads to more amortization, driving up repair costs and all of this affects the cost to ship a car. So, distance certainly plays a role, however it is often not the most important factor. Along with the other factors, supply/demand is a major contributor to price hikes or drops.

For example, New York to California is a busy route, which usually guarantees a certain delivery time frame. However, some day or even weeks there are less vehicles to transport in either direction and this ultimately drives the prices down. The more vehicles there are on the national central dispatch boards, the higher the prices because the competition for a spot on a car carrier is higher. What happens in the auto transport is this – a customer competes for a spot on a car carrier and the higher paying vehicle usually gets shipped first. Even if you schedule your shipping a month in advance a higher paying vehicle may show up on the board and the truck driver will always choose the higher paying load.

Moving a vehicle is not like moving your household goods. Advanced schedule cannot guarantee a time frame. Prices can change daily and only manual tracking can guarantee a price. That is why we always tell customers that prices we email them are only valid for a week. We call our rates the AA rates – affordable to the customer and acceptable by the carrier and this is what makes our business run and grow.
