At a young age, we are constantly asked about what we want to be when we grow up. Although often we don’t take this tied-and-true kid conversation starter seriously, later in life, it becomes a central part of our existence; that is – choosing a profession that can satisfy our goals, both personal and financial.

But it is never easy to find a job that fulfills all our needs. Maybe this is why many of us can name at least one dream job that isn’t much related to what we currently do for a living.

Some may be dreaming of becoming a truck driver since kindergarten age. Others steer towards this profession later in life, after years of working in a job that doesn’t satisfy them, therefore deciding to change careers and become a truck driver instead.

While everyone has the right to dream of becoming a truck driver, not everyone is fit to become one.

How to become a truck driver?
If you have ever wondered how to become a truck driver, read this post to find out if you have what it takes to drive a big rig.

A carrier told a customer his mom didn't wake him up on time and he got late start!

How do we comment on that?

The return of the Bubble car!

In recent months, the Swiss electric scooter manufacturer Micro has decided to re-introduce the Isetta as a modern electric car. The vehicle would enjoy its comeback under a new name – the Microlino. Similarly to the original model, this one features the same side-hinged front door and slide away steering column.The vehicle is powered by a 12 kW electric motor, which can reach the maximum speed of 54 mph and a range of about 80 miles.
BMW has re-engineered this Italian-born car to the point that no parts were interchangeable. The story of the cutest car ever made - here!

One of the first widely known attempts for driverless cars was the Linrrican Wonder. It was produced in 1925 by Houdina Radio Control, a radio equipment firm. The Linrrican Wonder traveled through a traffic jam in New York City and was controlled by a transmitting antenna. The car behind this “phantom auto” sent signals to the antenna, and the signals worked on small electric motors.

In 1920s, the concept of “phantom" gained popularity as the cars with no driver. What was Concept of Driverless Cars in the Past?

There are probably a million things the U.S. does better than Russia when it comes to automobiles. Yet, the last centuries have proved that there was more than just competition between the two countries – there was cooperation, support, and even mutual admiration.
And in between the copied style and design, Russia and the whole Soviet Union back in the 20th century, proved to be better at not few of the automobile production practices. Mechanics and construction durability come as no surprise to those who are familiar with Russia’s engineering ingenuity. But what no one had expected was to see Russia become better at creating legends – cars that ruled the past and continue to live in the presence.

The solitude that can never turn into loneliness. Because driving gets you moving – your body, and your mind. It gives you clarity and peace to think about what truly lies in your heart because movement and vibrations is the innate human nature.

Why do we love driving is an important question. The answer - because it emphasizes our own nature of movement and vibration.

We live in the era of instant gratification, which means we want everything now. We frown at the very thought of having to wait. The demand for instant results is sipping into every corner of our lives. What does it have to do with shipping a car you ask? Well, shipping a car is not like shipping a package, you can’t order an overnight delivery (or maybe you can, but that is a very very rare premium service that you pay a lot of money for).
Prepare to wait. Auto transport industry depends on factors management can not control. Although companies like Corsia Logistics often go above and beyond to provide you and your vehicle with the fastest service possible, you will have to wait. This wait time is reasonable and totally justifiable. Let’s decode this now.

Negotiating your car shipping deal doesn’t necessarily mean you will always get what you want for the lowest possible price.
Remember, both sides should conclude the negotiations feeling comfortable and happy with the agreement. For a moment, put yourself in the car shipper’s shoes. At some point in our lives, we’ve all been there. Remember trying to sell textbooks you no longer need, or a car, maybe even a house? Remember negotiating a babysitting rate to watch your neighbor’s child or your salary in a job interview? At least once, each one of us sold something – a tangible object or services. And you didn’t want to get low-balled. Car transport companies are no exception. And to be able to provide you and your vehicle with quality service they also need to win (make money).

Car Shipping Deals

During car transport, you will deal with a broker and/or carrier. Some think it’s better and less expensive to negotiate directly with a carrier. Well, it’s not always the case. In fact, it rarely is. Chasing after a discount you put yourself at risk of losing the most precious commodity you have: time. It takes a lot of time to find a carrier who just happens to have a truck in your area ready to pick up your vehicle right away or on the date that’s convenient for you. Or is heading to your delivery destination on the date you need your car to be there.

The nationwide trucking companies may be able to pick up your car on the desired date, but will often store it in one of their terminals until they have a full load going to your target destination.

It may be wise to trust a broker with shipping your vehicle. The good broker will make sure the carrier that will transport your car is properly insured and reputable. Brokers will negotiate car transport price on your behalf and coordinate shipping dates for you.
To see if you qualify for a discount and discuss your car shipping options, call Corsia Logistics at (818) 850-5258.

Are you one of those people who refuses to be impressed with new technology until you can actually download your favorite food straight from your laptop? Well, I am one of them. With technology developing so fast, I can’t even remember the last time I was impressed with a new tech invention. There comes a time when you simply can’t get surprised anymore. So yes, I am still waiting for food downloads.

5 Hottest Car Tech Features of 2016

Nevertheless, technology keeps moving forward in an attempt to awe us with the incredible new features. Remember when cars were solely designed to serve as means of transport? Me neither. As we are spending more and more time in a car, be it for our daily commute or for long road trips, automobile designers work hard to make us feel more ‘at home’ whenever we have to use our cars.
Each year, automakers add myriads of new features and twists to existing car technology. What are the hottest car tech features of 2016, you ask? Here are the top five, in our opinion:

When shipping a car you want to be sure it’s protected during its journey. Considering your vehicle is one of your most important investments, your worries are nothing out of the ordinary.

The auto transporter will treat your prized possession with the utmost care, and it’s unlikely your car arrives damaged. Statistics reports also show less than 5 percent of vehicles arrive with damages. Still, you don’t want to take your chances. It’s important your car is insured from the moment it’s picked up to the time it’s dropped off at its final destination.

Car Shipping Insurance

All car transporters are legally required to have liability insurance. This information can be verified with the Department of Transportation.

Auto shippers should also offer cargo insurance. When you call to place an order, confirm the existence of these policies and their amounts. You can request the Certificate of Insurance, which should include coverage amount for liability, workers comp, cargo limits, and deductible if applicable.

At Corsia Logistics we want you and your car to have a positive shipping experience, that’s why we only work with carriers with the highest safety ratings and proper insurance coverage.

During the shipping, your car will be insured under the Inland Marine Insurance. Don’t let the name confuse you. Although this type of insurance was originally created to protect the cargo transported by water, with time its definition has expanded to cover the goods and property moved by land. This coverage includes anything from theft, dents, and scratches to a total loss of a vehicle.

It’s important you feel comfortable with the coverage. For this reason, no question is too small! When you are in the process of choosing the auto shipper, here are some questions you may want to ask:

What type of damage is covered?
What is the limit of coverage?
In the case of a total loss, how is the value of my car determined?
Do I have to pay any deductible?
When scheduling a car shipment, you want your vehicle to be fully protected. Read this post to learn how car shipping insurance works.

Visiting a junk yard is certainly a walk down history lane that makes you think about how much have humans created … and destroyed. From cars to sewing machines, to motorbikes and musical instruments, humans have created a lot most of which ennobles and cultivates human spirit and transforms culture. Yet, part of this ingenuity has brought destruction and hatred among people. It is a powerful realization that in human nature lies both creation and destruction. It is not what we can and can’t do, but rather what we set our minds to do that sets the direction of our lives and writes history.
Traveling is always exciting. Visiting a junk yard can be even more exciting. It tells you a lot about human nature.
