Are you moving from Florida to New York? Or is the Sunshine State your origin and the Big Apple your destination? The good news is, both of these magnificent states have plenty to offer those who are fortunate enough to call them home. New York is the land of dreamers and go-getters, home to some of music's most influential talents like Biggie Smalls and Jay Z, and Hollywood's most iconic stars such as Barbra Streisand and Robert De Niro. In New York, Wallstreet tells us how the economy is doing and the Ball Drop in Times Square helps us usher in every new year. Florida, on the other hand, is for those who enjoy a healthy work-life balance; the lighthearted who need to feel the sunshine on their face and spend Sundays on the beach. If you're moving to Florida, you certainly aren't alone. In fact, around 1,000 people move there every day. The one thing both states have in common? They are both lands of great opportunity, the perfect places to begin the next chapter in your life.

Open auto transport

Our open auto shipping service is a reliable method for car shipping from Florida to New York and vice versa. Our expert drivers carefully secure each vehicle using industry best practices. Open transport is the industry standard, which means that you'll be getting the best rates available when you choose this option. We recommend open shipping for any vehicle whose value is less than $50,000 with a ground clearance of greater than four inches.

Enclosed auto transport

For luxury and classic cars, we recommend our enclosed auto transport. Your prized vehicle makes the journey between Florida and New York secured in a fully covered trailer that protects your car from the elements, dirt, and debris. Enclosed shipping is more expensive than open shipping but is the only way to ensure maximum protection for your car.

The cost of shipping a car will depend on the following:

  • Distance - Get the biggest bang for your buck the further you go. We charge $3/mile for deliveries in the same state and just 50¢/mile for coast to coast delivery.

  • Timeframe - If you require expedited transportation, your rates will be higher than they would be for standard shipping.
  • Open or enclosed - Open transport rates are 80% less than enclosed transport rates.
  • If you leave more than 100 lbs of personal items in the trunk of your car, you may be subject to a penalty fee.

We offer our signature AFta gap coverage plan which acts as a supplement to your personal vehicle insurance deductible for up to $2,000.

AFta Gap Coverage

Gap Coverage

We inspect your vehicle before pickup and after delivery to make sure there's no damage. However, we understand that customers sometimes discover damage after our transport service is concluded.
