New York to Florida Car Transport

Planning the shipping of a car from New York to Florida

You're likely one of the many "snowbirds" which are yearly seasonal shippers that we assist with vehicle transport for their long-term stay.

The snowbird season for transporting cars from NY to FL (and NJ to FL) begins in late October, as residents of New York and New Jersey start heading south for the winter.


Keep in mind that late 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 New York. Carriers prefer to have their trailers full to avoid losing money.

However, fewer people ship cars from New York to Florida 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 New York to Florida 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 York 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 New York Car Shipping

When you're shipping a car to or from New York, there are three areas of the state that will affect how much your transport will cost, and how long it will take to ship a car to or from New York. One area is the New York City metropolitan area that includes the five boroughs (The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island) and Long Island. The other area is just outside of New York City that includes the cities of White Plains, Yonkers, and Rye. Finally, the other area is Upstate New York, which is basically the rest of the state.

Auto transports in and out of the New York City metropolitan area will typically cost more because of the logistics of picking up or delivering a vehicle in such a congested and challenging metropolitan area, but the upside is that freight can often move faster because that’s where most of the carriers are working in the state of New York.

The cities of White Plains, Yonkers, and Rye are just outside New York City and they can be the best areas of New York to ship cars to or from because car carriers can avoid the city and the boroughs and they can still continue travelling to surrounding states without having to pay heavy tolls or encounter too much traffic.

The rest of the state of New York, Upstate New York, is made up of several subregions. Those subregions include Western New York, Finger Lakes, Southern Tier, Central New York, North Country, Mohawk Valley, Capital District, and Hudson Valley. Each of these regions in Upstate New York have their pros and cons when it comes to car shipping. Most areas along the interstates throughout NY state are relatively easy to ship in and out of and are your cheapest shipping options. Those areas include the cities of Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse, and Albany. The southern areas of Hudson Valley (Poughkeepsie down to just north of White Plains) can be a little more challenging so transports in and out of these areas may take a day or two longer and may cost more.

Popular Cities

We handle numerous transports to and from Florida from New York, 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.
