        Miami-Dade County is the largest metropolitan area in Florida. Snowbirds spend winters in Miami, and retirees relocate from northern cities to enjoy the year-round warm weather and active communities. If you like outdoor activities, Miami offers beaches and Biscayne National Park. If you find yourself moving to Miami, you may want to save yourself some stress by hiring an auto transport company.

        Car shipping cost in Miami

        Shipping a car in Miami costs between $500 and $2,000, but the exact price depends on a few factors, including the distance the car is being shipped. The estimated costs below are for a mid-sized sedan on an open carrier, assuming the car is operable and the reservation is made 45 days in advance.

        Distance is the most significant variable in the price of shipping a car, but the price also varies based on vehicle size, type of vehicle and pickup and drop-off location. Other factors include:

        • Cars or trucks that are not operable cost more to ship because they require special moving equipment.
        • Enclosed transport, typically recommended for classic or luxury cars that need extra protection, costs more than open carrier.
        • If you need the car picked up or delivered on a specific date, you pay more for the company to reroute a driver to accommodate the request.
        • The season when you need auto transport also affects the cost. For instance, snowbirds traveling during late fall might pay higher prices to ship a car to Florida, a time when many are heading south for winter.
        • Where you have a car picked up or dropped off affects the cost. Miami residents save money by having a car shipped to a central station that is more convenient for truckers, such as Ft. Lauderdale airport.

        Choosing a car transport company in Miami

        When getting a quote from an auto shipping company in Miami, you’ll need to provide:

        • The size and type of vehicle
        • The pickup and drop-off locations
        • Whether the car is operable
        • If expedited service is required

        If you have a vehicle that requires special protection for a luxury or classic car, look for companies that offer additional insurance and enclosed transport. If you’re moving a boat or RV, make sure the Miami shipping company provides that service.

        The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) regulates Florida auto shipping and provides information for consumers. All interstate auto shippers must register with the U.S. Department of Transportation and obtain a USDOT number. Auto-shipping brokers need to have an FMCSA property broker license that can be confirmed through an FMCSA Motor Carrier (MC) number. All auto transport carriers must be insured and licensed, and you can ask to see a certificate of insurance. Auto transport companies should give you a written bill of lading upon pickup.

        Before signing the contract, make sure you understand how the claims process works and where to file claims for any damage.

        Brokers vs. carriers

        Be sure to understand the difference between a broker and a carrier before shipping your car. Carriers handle the whole process themselves, meaning these shippers have their own drivers and trucks. However, most Florida auto shipping companies are brokers, which means they contract with carriers to bring services to customers. If you choose a broker, make sure you understand whom to contact for customer support during transport.

        Miami auto transport FAQ

        What do I need to do before my car is shipped from Miami?
        Before you ship a car from Miami, carefully inspect it yourself. Record any existing damage with photos and write down a description. Next, take any personal belongings out of the car, including the trunk. Even if the shipper allows items in the car, they will most likely be uninsured. Remove any attachments or accessories and leave a quarter-tank of gas for loading and unloading your vehicle.
        Can you ship a car to another country from Miami?
        Many Florida auto shipping companies offer international car shipping. If you require international shipping, simply check our list and confirm with the company’s representative that it provides this service.
        How much does it cost to ship a car from Miami?
        Shipping a car from Miami to another state roughly costs $500 to $2,000, but the cost depends on several factors, including distance, size of the vehicle and timeframe of pickup and delivery.
        How long does it take to ship a car from Miami?
        Shipping a car from Miami to another state typically takes two to 11 days. The timing depends on destination, time of year and type of transport required. In some cases, you can expedite the process if you pay an additional fee for faster service.
        What kind of vehicles can be shipped from Miami?
        Small to large sedans, pickup trucks, minivans and SUVs can all be shipped from Miami. Many companies also ship luxury or exotic cars. Large work trucks, four-wheel-drive vehicles, motorcycles, ATVs, RVs and boats typically need special equipment and handling. If you have a vehicle that needs special handling, speak with a shipper’s representative for more details.
