Shipping a car from Florida to California is a pretty easy process with Easy Auto Ship. You maybe moving from Florida to California or just bought your dream car in Florida but live in California and need to ship it back home. No matter what the reason our experienced team of transport specialist are here to help. Florida to California is very popular route and we have a large preferred carrier network we use for this route weekly. The first thing you need to consider is if you want to ship your car on an open-air trailer or an enclose car carrier. The average price to ship a car from Florida to California on an open trailer is about 950 dollars. This is the most economical way to ship your car if you are concerned with price. If you are concerned with the car being exposed to weather and road hazards like a possible stone chip, then enclose car transport is the best option but you can expect to pay about 40% more for this service. Many enclosed carriers also have climate-controlled trailers that regulate the temperature inside the trailer.
How long does it take to ship a car from Florida to California?
We typically work with a 1-5-day window for pick up but can arrange exact pick up days if needed It just cost a bit more to do so. Once loaded on the car carrier transit time can range from 3-10 days. If the truck has an entire load going from Florida to California and they have team drivers, they can make it in 3-4 days. Most times the car hauler is doing pick up and drop offs along the way like Florida to Texas then Texas to California. This is how they can make more money than just Florida to California. With a single driver and that carrier zig zagging along the way the trip will typically take 7-9 days. Drop off times vary as it depends on how smooth the previous drop offs go however, we can arrange exact drop off time as well. To do this we will typically have the larger car carrier drop off the vehicle at a local yard then will arrange for a flat bed to pick it up and do the final mile deliver at the desired drop off time that is arranged.
Can I put personal items in my car when shipping from Florida to California?
The technical answer is no you are not supposed to put personal items in the car during transport however most carriers will allow you to put up to 100 pounds of stuff in the truck of the car. The reason they don’t like you to put personal items in the car is they are not covered under the carrier’s cargo insurance. The other reason is that each car hauler is governed by weight limits and if every car was packed full of stuff that means they may be overweight, and risk being fined by department of transportation. This is also the reason we ask that you only have a ¼ tank of fuel in the car as that adds up if every car on the truck has a full tank. Another reason carrier’s like a ¼ tank or under is that liquids shift during transport and can make it difficult for the carrier going down the road with a lot of shifting liquids if all the cars have full tanks of gas.
