Top 10 Popular Routes for Auto Transport

Everyone has different pick-up and delivery locations when transporting their vehicles. However, some routes may be more common than you think. These routes have become popular with customers’ demands and carriers who must transport to and from these locations with almost every transport. These routes may also save you money due to their popularity.

1. Florida to California
The average cost for this route is $1,250-$3,000. Coast-to-coast is a common route because most people living in either coast city want to vacation or visit a place with similar weather. Another reason is that both coast cities are filled with hotspots such as Disney resorts, major tourist cities, and beaches, to name a few.

2. California to Florida
This route is mainly popular for the same reason as the previous entry. The average price for this route is $1,250-$3,000

3. California to Texas
Most people who order for this route live in Texas and are mainly tourists, have a job opportunity in California or are coming back from a summer vacation. This route is usually only $900-$2,500 if going to and from major cities in these states.

4. Texas to California
With this route, the opposite happens compared to #3, and the same applies to a low rate. The average rate for this route is $900-$2,500.

5. New York to California
Snowbirds usually use this route to escape the cold of New York in the winter and go to warmer California in the meantime. This route is also popular during the summer because California is a famous “summer state” because of its beaches. The average price of this route is $1,350-$3,000.

6. California to New York
This route isn’t as popular as going from New York to California because there is not much incentive to visit a colder state. But this route is still popular because of the amount of tourism that New York brings in. The average price for this route is $1,350-$3,000

7. New York to Florida
Again, “Snowbirds” are the ones that popularize this route. Since Florida is the closest “summer state” to New York, many people feel it is a logical choice for a vacation. The average price for this route is $850-$2,000.

8. Florida to New York
For the same reason as #7, most people in warmer states would prefer to stay there, but New York is intriguing in the tourist sense that people will want to at least visit there. The average price of this route is $850-$2,000.

9. California to California
Though many might think this is redundant and people should drive their car within a state, the same doesn’t apply to California. California is a larger state, and driving from Southern to Northern California can take a few days due to drivers needing rest. The average price of this route is $550-$1,500.

10. New Jersey to California
Again, snowbirds popularize this route. New Jersey winters can be harsh, so temporarily moving to California to experience warmer weather is ideal. The average price for this route is $1,350-$3,000.

You may have noticed that most of these routes had California, New York, or Florida. The cost of transport for these routes is subject to change for many reasons, such as weather conditions, the service of the company (enclosed, open, specialized, etc.), and the time of the year. We advise contacting a carrier 1-4 weeks before your shipping dates for updated rates.
