Shipping a car from Florida to Texas is in high demand all year round given the mild weather both of these states enjoy all year round. Because of the "friendly" weather in these states, weather delays are rare. About the only time of the year you have to be concerned about potential delays when shipping a car from Florida to Texas is during hurricane season and occasionally in the middle of winter when parts of central and northern Texas are prone to ice storms.
The distance from Florida to Texas varies depending on the pick up and delivery locations. If you go from Orlando, FL to Austin, TX it is between 1,125 – 1,237 miles. A car carrier can typically travel that route in three days. If a car carrier has to start in a far southern location in Florida such as Miami, and deliver a vehicle to a far western location in Texas such as El Paso, the route is over 1,900 miles and will take a car carrier around 4-5 days to travel. Shorter routes from Florida to Texas would be from cities such as Pensacola, FL to Houston, TX. That route is just over 500 miles and will only take a car carrier a day or two to travel.
The main corridors from Florida to Texas are I-75 to I-10 that cuts through the Florida panhandle and into the state of Alabama. From Alabama, car carriers will typically go one of two routes. One route will take them along the Gulf Coast on I-10 through Mississippi, Louisiana, and then into Texas to cities such as Houston, Austin, San Antonio and other towns and cities in southern Texas.
The other route will take them north from Alabama to Jackson in west central Mississippi. From Jackson, they'll take I-20 to head over to Shreveport, LA, and then into Texas to head into the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and other towns and cities in northern and western Texas.

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!

Texas is the second most populated state in the country with over 29 million people spread out over 268,596 square miles! To say there is a demand for car shipping services in Texas is an understatement. The fastest and cheapest transports are going to be to and from the heavily populated cities of Fort Worth, Dallas, Arlington, Austin, San Antonio, and Houston.
The most challenging areas to ship to or from in Texas are in western and southern Texas. Cities in those areas include El Paso, Lubbock, Odessa, Abilene, Corpus Christi, and South Padre Island. These transports can occasionally take a day or two longer and can cost more as those aren’t regular shipping destinations for most carriers.
