Shipping a Car to Florida Seasonally

For nearly forty years, Intercity Lines has worked with “snowbirds”- individuals who are looking for a reliable and convenient way to take their beloved cars with them to warmer weather for the winter or back for the summer. These “snowbirds” have been some of our most loyal customers over the years, relying on Intercity Lines to transport their cars to and from the Northeast to Florida or the Southwest. Intercity Lines makes shipping a car to and from your seasonal homes easy with fully enclosed auto transport, expert drivers, and weekly shipments to and from Florida. We also provide peace of mind with our $2 million worth of cargo insurance that covers your vehicle from the time it’s picked up to the time it’s delivered. Our expert drivers and lift gate equipped enclosed trailers will ensure your car is protected throughout its’ journey and our drivers will keep you up to date until the car is delivered to you. We safely transport their vehicles from one driveway to another so they can have their most prized vehicles at all times regardless of where the season takes them.

How does scheduling work when shipping a car to Florida

Intercity Lines schedules snowbird vehicle transport to and from Florida on a weekly basis. We do not take a deposit, so we just ask that you fill out our shipping request form and let us know what week you would like your car picked up. Our pick up schedules typically run from Sunday to that following Sunday and transit time is typically 3-5 days from when the vehicle was picked up. This schedule is not guaranteed due to the many variables we encounter, but we do everything we can to stay within that 7 day pick up window. We do tend to book up at least a month ahead, so always be sure to get your vehicle scheduled as soon as you can!

Can I pack my car before shipping it?

Many snowbirds ask if they can pack their vehicles before they are transported to or from their 2nd home. Most companies do not allow you to pack extra items in the vehicle due to liability and federal weight regulations all carriers must follow. Intercity Lines does allow you to pack up to 100 lbs of items in your vehicle. Typically 2 full suitcases will meet the 100lb limit. If the driver arrives and feels that the additional items weight significantly more than 100lbs we will be forced to apply a $250 packing fee to your order unless the items are unpacked. We do not take responsibility for these items, so please ensure they are well packed and secured in the vehicle being transported. We ask that these items are not placed in either of the front seats or in a place where they will obstruct the driver’s view out of any of the windows.

Our experienced drivers have fully-enclosed trailers with hydraulic lift gates to ensure safe transport of your vehicle to and from Florida or your seasonal home. We treat each car we ship as if it was our own and each vehicle receives the white glove treatment, including seat covers, a cloth, and plastic cover to protect the exterior of the car while in transport. Our customers also do a detailed inspection at pick up and delivery, so you know your car safely arrived in the same condition we picked it up in. All of our drivers are customer oriented and strive to keep the customer up-to-date throughout the process of shipping your vehicle. One of our most popular routes for “snowbirds”  to ship their cars is from New England to Florida and vice versa.
