Shipping a vehicle from point A to point B can happen in a few different ways. You just need to choose the right auto transport method. Whether you are shipping your personal vehicle or a car you just bought from out of state, transporting it requires some effort and money.
You can choose from a few auto transport methods:

2.OPTION TWO: Have someone else drive your car!
Would you trust your car in the hands of someone else to drive it thousands of miles? This is definitely a cheaper option and could be faster, but there is a BUT! You can probably find someone who would be willing to drive your car for you to Arizona. This could be a friend or a family member, or you can probably find a college student trying to make some extra cash. I did this once. A friend of mine actually drove my car from Chicago to Las Vegas and this was definitely a cheaper option, yet he was my friend and moreover, he is a professional truck driver. I had no problem trusting him. If you don’t have someone close to do this for you can also search on Craigslist. In my opinion though, if you don’t have someone close to you whom you can trust, this is by no means the perfect method to ship a car.
Now, if you decide to find someone, you should definitely draft a written contract detailing each party’s responsibilities. You have to make sure the driver has insurance that will cover any possible accidents. Make sure the contract describes who is responsible for mechanical failures costs or any other delays or damages. Moreover, you should ask for references and check to make sure you are dealing with a trustworthy person. My advice is to not try this if your you have an expensive car that is a really valuable investment. A better option is to go with a company like Corsia Logistics and to have peace of mind.
3. OPTION THREE: Drive-away services
Now, if you still want to save some money and have someone else drive your car you can search for drive-away services. You can find companies who offer to find you a driver following a strict criteria. If you want to do that you can probably request a professional driver. The bare minimum these companies follow though is to screen the drivers for clean driving record and have an age requirement. You will still want to read reviews and references for this driver to make sure he has done that kind of jobs before.
The idea of a complete stranger driving your car can be a little disturbing. You don’t know the person, you don’t know what might happen on the road and this could be nerve wracking. But, still this is an option and, as I said, the driver will have an insurance should something happen to your vehicle during transport.
When you are trying to choose between two potentially good services you should compare all the aspects of the services. Insurance is a must have when it comes to auto transport, but professionalism, reputation and trust is just as important.
4. OPTION FOUR: Fly over and drive the car
The last option is valid for those who have bought a vehicle from out of state (online on eBay for example). If you need to transport a car from New York to Arizona you may have to fly over and drive the car back. This though may not be the most efficient option because you have to pay for airfare and then on the way back for fuel, accommodations and food. Moreover, this will take quite a bit of your time. Driving the car yourself could be one of the cheapest options, but it depends on how far away it is from you and whether you are ready to embrace the challenges of the road.
Piece of Advice, Peace of Mind: Don’t drive – Ship your car!
Driving a vehicle from New York to Arizona means embarking on a long distance trip. This means that you will be driving for at least a couple of days, with stops.
The cost to ship a car from New York to Arizona could be anywhere from $1250 to $1500 or more depending on the car’s make and model, modifications, and the type of transport as well as seasonality. Open auto transport is cheaper than enclosed vehicle transport carrier. Seasonality, such as snowbirds season also affects the car transport cost. During the snowbirds season car shipping prices go up due to the high volume of people moving to the Southern states.
Are you a snowbird moving south?
When the winter wind starts to blow the snowbirds show! This starts a bit like a poem and I wish I could tell the whole story in rhyme, but it will be hard. When the winter gets closer snowbirds from the Northern regions head to Arizona. Arizona is one of the most popular states for snowbirds along with Florida, Texas and California. Thousands of snowbirds from Canada and the Midwest flock to Arizona where the average temperatures in the winter don’t fall below 70` F. Many reside in their RVs, some stay in temporary rentals and other own their own second homes there.
Those who own a second home or rent a temporary apartment often move their vehicle with them when the snowbirds season comes. When this time of the year comes we are here to help! Corsia Logistics transports the vehicles of thousands of snowbirds. We even offer discounts when possible! The high demand and the specifics of the seasonality don’t allow us to really go below a certain price, but we work hard to make it affordable for snowbirds to ship their car from New York to Arizona. For more details on vehicle transport for snowbirds please call us at 818.850.5258 or visit our snowbirds auto transport section.
Snowbirds, don’t be lured by low prices when researching. Some auto transport companies often low ball the price and then later ask you for more money. Snowbirds season is marked by high demand on certain routes and the prices go up. Take the time to research and talk to the company. You can read customer testimonials, but always make sure you call and ask questions.
