We do our fair share of Florida to New Jersey auto transports, especially in early spring when the “snowbirds” head back north to New Jersey after the winter. Snowbirds are those New Jersey residents (and New York residents too) that head to Florida over the winter months. The snowbird season starts in late October and ends in late March/early April. When the snowbird season ends and New Jersey residents head back home is when the demand to ship a car from Florida to New Jersey goes up dramatically. This is also the most expensive time of the year to ship a car from Florida to New Jersey!
The cheapest time of the year to ship a car from Florida to New Jersey is when the snowbird season starts in late October. Why is that? When car carriers are done shipping their cars from New Jersey to Florida, they have to head back north to New Jersey to get another load of cars. Car carriers lose money if they don’t have a full load. The problem is, there aren’t a lot of people shipping cars from Florida to New Jersey in late fall/early winter. As a result of the decrease in demand of car shipments heading north, car carriers are desperate to fill their trailers when they head back north and are usually willing to take less money than they would at other times of the year.

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!

New Jersey auto transports are very popular. A few routes that are especially popular are NJ to CA, NJ to FL, and NJ to TX (and from those three states to New Jersey). No matter where you’re shipping a car to or from New Jersey, there are some locations in the state that are better than others.
Starting with the best car shipping locations in New Jersey, you’ll want to stick to those locations in New Jersey just west of New York City. Those would include cities such as Newark, Paramus, Hackensack, Elizabeth, and Linden. These are all great locations to ship to or from in New Jersey. You might be interested to know that most car carriers that ship to and from New York City actually have yards in or near these locations in New Jersey. They’ll send in small trucks and trailers to deliver or pick up vehicles in New York City from their New Jersey yards.
Other solid car shipping locations in New Jersey include Trenton and Camden. Essentially anything in northeastern, central, or southwestern New Jersey are great car shipping locations. Car carriers are serving these areas regularly.
Northwestern New Jersey can be tricky, especially when you get off the interstates. But the most difficult car shipping locations are going to be those towns and cities along the Atlantic coast. We’re referring to those cities from Toms River in the north down to Cape May in the south. All those locations along the coast and highway 9 are a bit isolated. We can (and do) deliver cars to and from those locations but these transports can take a few days longer and be more expensive as there aren’t as many car carriers that are serving those locations.
As a door-to-door auto transporter, we can ship to or from any residential or business location in Florida, and we offer open or enclosed shipping options. See how much it will cost to ship a car to or from Florida by getting an instant quote today!
