Florida to Michigan Car Transport

Planning the shipping of a car from Florida to Michigan

National Express proudly provides services to customers looking for Florida to Michigan auto transport. We are local to Florida, and are known for specifically catering to those making  both permanent  and seasonal shipments.   If you are a "snowbird" spending the winters in sunny Florida, you are getting ready to head back and need a reliable and trusted company.


October and November are the most expensive times of the year to ship a car on this route due to the high demand during snowbird season.

Rates typically drop significantly in early spring because the snowbird season ends and many people begin shipping their cars in the opposite direction, from Florida to Michigan. Carriers prefer to have their trailers full to avoid losing money.

However, fewer people ship cars from Florida to Michigan in the spring, so carriers are more willing to lower rates to fill their trailers as they head back south to pick up another load. Essentially, the demand to ship cars from Florida to New York is much higher in early spring, leading to lower rates for the reverse route.

Whether you are shipping a car from Florida to Michigan during the busy snowbird season in late fall or during the slower early spring period, you can book a transport order with us within seven days of when your car will be ready for pick-up. We have strong relationships with carriers on this route, ensuring we can schedule and move vehicles quickly year-round.

The distance between New Jersey and Florida ranges from 1,200 to 1,400 miles, depending on the specific pick-up and delivery locations. A car carrier can typically cover this distance in about three days, meaning your car will arrive at its destination in Florida three days after pick-up in New York.

From Florida Auto Transport

We are primarily serving five main areas: northeast Florida, central Florida, southeast Florida, southwest Florida, and the Panhandle. We also service the Florida Keys, though less frequently.

The busiest hub for auto transport in and out of Florida is Miami, located in southeast Florida. Other popular cities in this region include West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, and Fort Lauderdale. We can quickly arrange transports to or from southeast Florida, especially Miami, although these transports are more expensive due to the southern location.

In the northern part of the state, Jacksonville in northeast Florida is a prime car shipping location and one of the best in the state.

Central Florida also offers excellent car shipping locations in major cities such as Orlando, Daytona Beach, Ocala, Tampa, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and Lakeland.

In southwest Florida, cities like Fort Myers, Cape Coral, and Naples are strong shipping locations. However, keep in mind that the further south you go, the more expensive the transport, so Naples will cost more than Tampa.

In the Panhandle, Tallahassee is the top car shipping location. Other cities like Panama City and Pensacola depend on the destination of the transport. Carriers often prefer routes along I-10, which is a busy trucking corridor through the Panhandle, Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. Transports to or from the Panhandle to the northwest, north, or northeast can be more challenging and costly.

The Florida Keys are the most challenging area to ship to or from in Florida. While we can manage these transports, they are rare and expensive. Shipping to or from cities like Key Largo, Marathon, or Key West will be the costliest. To save money, consider meeting a carrier in Miami instead.

Carriers rarely serve both coasts of Florida in the same trip. They usually handle either the east or west coast separately. For example, a carrier picking up or delivering in Miami will travel along the east coast with their current load.

As a door-to-door auto car shipper, we can ship to and from any location in Florida. Whether you're shipping to or from Key Largo, Jacksonville, or anywhere in between, we can handle it. For current shipping rates, get an instant quote online or call us.
