Shipping a Car From Florida to Illinois

We ship cars from Florida to Illinois all year long, but particularly in early spring when Illinois residents return to their primary residence in Illinois after living in Florida during the winter months. We call these dual residents, "snowbirds." Other snowbird routes from Florida that are popular in early spring are FL to NY, FL to NJ, FL to PA, and FL to OH.

The demand for auto transports from Florida to Illinois is highest in early spring. This is the most expensive time of the year to ship a car from Florida to Illinois. In contrast, the demand for auto transports from Florida to Illinois is the least in late fall because most transports this time of year are going the opposite direction (i.e. IL to FL). This is the least expensive time of the year to ship a car from Florida to Illinois.

A popular car shipping route between these two states is from Orlando, FL to Chicago, IL. This route is around 1,150 miles. A car carrier can travel this route in three days. That means if your car is picked up in Orlando, FL on a Monday, it will typically arrive in Chicago, IL on Thursday. As you can see, this is a fast auto transport!

Florida Auto Transport

We do a lot of transports to and from Florida, particularly snowbird transports between Florida and New York. There are four areas of Florida that we primarily ship to and from. Those areas include Central Florida, Southeast Florida, Southwest Florida, and the panhandle. The fifth 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 pretty far south in Florida so these transports will be more expensive than say Jacksonville which is in far northern Florida.

Orlando and Jacksonville are other popular cities to ship to or from in Florida as there are a lot of carriers serving these locations.

The next most popular cities to ship to or from in Florida are the Gulf Coast cities in Central Florida that include Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg (in that order), and then the cities of Southwest Florida that include Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Naples, and Marco Island. 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.

The third best option is the Florida panhandle. The main cities in the panhandle include Tallahassee, Panama City, Fort Walton Beach, and Pensacola. Carriers tend to shy away from the panhandle because those cities aren’t along any major trucking corridors. The exception, however, is if you are shipping to the panhandle cities from California or Texas. Carriers don’t mind hitting the panhandle cities then because they are along their route as they head into Florida from California or Texas.

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 the 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!

Illinois Auto Transport

The vast majority of the Illinois auto transports we do is in northeast Illinois, specifically the Chicago metro area. “Chicagoland” has a population of around 9.5 million people and has two major trucking corridors that serve the area in the northwest and north (I-90 and I-94), and two trucking corridors in the southwest and south (I-55 and I-57). Given the area’s massive population and numerous interstates serving it, it is an ideal location for car carriers.

A few other car shipping locations in Illinois that aren’t too bad include Rockford in the north, and Peoria and Bloomington in the center of the state.

The most challenging areas to ship a car to or from in Illinois are those areas south of I-72, essentially the southern half of the state. Car carriers aren’t regularly traveling to southern Illinois because the towns and cities there don’t have large populations. Car carriers typically go to high population areas served by interstates. While there are certainly interstates serving southern Illinois, there aren’t a lot of highly populated cities.

Whether you live the Chicago metro area or the small town of Marion, IL in far southern Illinois, or anywhere in between, we can handle your auto transport. As a door-to-door auto transporter, we ship cars to and from any location in Illinois.
