It’s also key to hire a company that offers options in how to move your car. Experienced companies have both enclosed and open carriers. Also, ensure they have the proper equipment needed to move your car safely. You also want a company that has all the proper licenses, meets all state regulations, is fully insured and has favorable reviews from past customers.

Florida Car Shipping FAQ
How Much Does It Cost To Ship a Car?

Distance. The cost of shipping a car to Florida will depend in part on the distance involved, which impacts fuel and driver labor hours.
Type of carrier. Direct Connect Auto Transport offers open carriers, the most cost-efficient auto transport option, as well as enclosed carriers that offer more protection for vehicles in a temperature-controlled environment.
Type of vehicle. The size of a vehicle also is a factor in cost. Direct Connect has experience in every type of vehicle, including cars, trucks, SUVs, RVs, boats, motorcycles and commercial construction equipment.
Location. Your destination in Florida can impact the cost of your service. For example, large cities such as Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Orlando, Tampa, St. Petersburg and Jacksonville and the surrounding suburbs are generally less expensive than more rural and remote locations.
Seasonal factors. The auto transport industry has seasons that are busier than others. Typically, they include summer and early fall. Moving during these times can impact cost. In Florida, the winter also can be much busier because of “snowbirds” moving south (snowbirds are northern state residents who move south in the winter to avoid the snow and cold weather).
