How do I ship a car from Florida to California?

What’s the best way for me to ship a car from Florida to California? My boyfriend and I are moving to San Francisco, and we’d like to bring our car with us.

What an exciting new chapter for you—good luck with the move! While you can always drive your car across the country, that can be time-consuming and expensive. Here are a few ways you can ship your car from Florida to California without driving it yourself:
  • Car shipping company: While these companies specialize in moving your car from one place to another, they’re often expensive!
  • Shipping by train: Depending on the company you choose, this option could be significantly less expensive than a standard car shipping company.
  • Have a friend drive it for you: Not only is this option less expensive than the others, but it may also be more convenient! Try asking around to see if anyone you know might be interested in a road trip.
Hopefully, you can use one of these options to get your car to California! Remember, you’ll need to buy a new insurance policy to register your car in California. Luckily, the Jerry app is here to make sure you find the coverage you need at an affordable rate.
