We ship a lot of cars from Florida to Connecticut, particularly in early spring when the snowbirds head back north after the winter. Snowbirds are those people who have a primary residence in Connecticut, but move to Florida during the winter, and then head back to their primary home in Connecticut in early spring. While this is the most popular time to ship a car from Florida to Connecticut, it's also the most expensive time of the year to ship a car from Florida to Connecticut.
The cheapest time of the year to ship a car from Florida to Connecticut is in late fall when most of the car shipments are going the opposite direction (CT to FL). Because the demand is far greater going south in early fall, car carriers have no trouble getting their trailers filled and they can charge the most this time of year.
After they unload their trailers in Florida, they have to head back north to Connecticut to get another load of vehicles. On their way back to Connecticut they want their trailers as full as possible, but the demand for car shipments going north isn't nearly as great so car carriers struggle getting their trailers full. As a result, they have to charge less. That's why this time of year is the cheapest time to ship a car from Florida to Connecticut.
A typical car shipping route from Florida to Connecticut is from Orlando, FL to Hartford, CT. This route is 1,185 miles. A car carrier can typically drive that route in 3-4 days.

We do a lot of transports to and from Florida, particularly snowbird transports between Florida and New York (and New York to Florida). There are five areas of Florida that we primarily ship to and from. Those areas include northeast Florida, central Florida, southeast Florida, southwest Florida, and the panhandle. The sixth area that we do transports for, but not nearly as often, is the Florida Keys.
The most popular shipping hub for auto transports in and out of Florida is Miami in southeast Florida. Other popular cities in the area include West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, and Fort Lauderdale. Any transports to or from southeast Florida, particularly Miami, we can get done pretty quickly, but of course these cities are further south in Florida so these transports will be more expensive than cities located in the northern parts of the state.
Speaking of the northern part of the state, Jacksonville in the northeast section of the state is a great car shipping location! In fact, it's one of the better car shipping locations in Florida.
In the southwest Florida, the cities of Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and Naples are all solid car shipping locations as well. Again, keep in mind that the further south you go down into Florida, the more your transport will be so Naples will be more expensive than Tampa, for example.
Heading back up north to the panhandle, Tallahassee is the best car shipping location in the panhandle, but the rest of the cities along the panhandle are hit or miss depending on the shipping location on the other side of the transport. Car carriers shy away from the panhandle unless they are shipping to or from the cities in the panhandle, such as Panama City and Pensacola, to or from cities along I-10 in the southern part of the country. I-10 is a busy cross-country trucking corridor that runs through the panhandle and through Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. Otherwise if you are shipping to or from the panhandle cities to or from the northwest, north, or northeast, these transports can be challenging at times (can take more time and more money to complete).
The most challenging area to ship to or from Florida is the Florida Keys. While we can certainly do these transports, we rarely do them as so few people are going to or from the Keys with their vehicles. Shipping to or from any of the cities along the Keys (Key Largo, Marathon, Key West) will be your most expensive transport options in Florida. You can save a lot of money shipping to or from the Keys by meeting a carrier in Miami instead!
One other interesting note about carriers that do Florida auto transports, they rarely serve both coasts of Florida with the same truck load. A carrier will either do all his transports along either the west or east coast on one trip, and then the other coast on another trip. He will rarely pick up and deliver vehicles on both coasts on the same trip. That means if your vehicle is being picked up or delivered in Miami, for example, that carrier will be traveling along the east coast of Florida with his current load of vehicles.
As a door-to-door auto transporter, we can ship to and from any location in Florida. It doesn’t matter if you’re shipping to or from Key Largo or Jacksonville or anywhere in between, we can handle it!

We do a fair amount of Connecticut auto transports but not as many as we do for other northeastern states such as New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Most transports we do to and from Connecticut involve the state of Florida (i.e. CT to FL and FL to CT), or they are short shipments to or from neighboring northeastern states.
The three primary trucking corridors in Connecticut are I-91, I-84, and I-95. Any vehicles being picked up or delivered in locations along or near these interstates can be shipped fairly easily. All the bigger cities and towns in Connecticut are along these interstates so shipping vehicles to or from them is pretty smooth.
As with all states, the best car shipping locations are usually in the biggest cities. Connecticut is no different. Starting in northcentral Connecticut, Hartford is a great car shipping location. Then heading to southcentral Connecticut your best car shipping locations are from New Haven down through southwest Connecticut from Bridegport to Stamford.
Southwest Connecticut is particularly popular for car carriers due to its proximity to major interstate junctions. Stamford, for instance, is a GREAT car shipping location in southwest Connecticut because car carriers can get to and from this location without much hassle.
The most challenging car shipping locations in Connecticut are going to be in northwest Connecticut. Towns like Cornwall, North Canaan, and Salisbury, for example, can be challenging. This area is more challenging because this is one area of the state that doesn't have an interstate. This area is still reachable, but you can expect to pay more to ship a car to or from this area and your transport may take a little longer to complete because it's not an area car shippers are regularly going to and from.
