We ship cars frequently from Florida to Ohio, especially when the snowbirds return to Ohio in early spring. If you’re not familiar with the term “snowbird,” these are residents in the northern states that head south in late fall to states like Florida for the winter, and then return to their northern states in early spring. Other popular snowbird routes are from FL to NJ and FL to NY.
As you can imagine, the demand is highest for car shipments going from Florida to Ohio in early spring when all these snowbirds head back north. Because of the high demand, this is the most expensive time of the year to ship a car from Florida to Ohio.
The cheapest time of the year to ship a car from Florida to Ohio is in late fall. The reason for this is because the demand for car shipments going this direction in late fall is at the lowest.
One particular route that is popular from Florida to Ohio is from Orlando to Columbus. The distance on that route is just shy of 950 miles. A car carrier can typically travel that distance in 2-3 days.

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!

Ohio auto transports are fairly common for us. Some locations are better than others when it comes to shipping cars to or from Ohio. Let’s start by taking a look at the best car shipping locations in Ohio.
I-90 is a well-travelled west/east trucking lane that cuts across near the northern border of Ohio. This popular interstate connects the northeast states of Maine, Vermont, and New Hampshire with the pacific northwest states of Idaho and Washington. Any location along or near I-90 is going to be your best options. Those locations would include the cities of Cleveland, Akron, and Toledo. These are going to be your best car shipping locations in Ohio.
The next best car shipping location in Ohio is Columbus. With its central location in the state and two interstates passing through it, I-70 and I-71, it is a popular stop for car carriers.
Finally, Cincinnati in far southwest Ohio, can be a good car shipping location depending on the car shipping location on the other end of the transport.
Those most difficult car shipping locations are in south central and southeast Ohio. If you look at a map of Ohio you’ll notice two things about these areas. They aren’t served by interstates, and they are dominated by the Wayne National Forest. As a result, these are areas in Ohio that car carriers aren’t travelling to or from regularly. You’ll pay more and it may take more time for transports going to or from these areas.
