So later this year I'm planning on moving, I'm in the center of the US, so depending on where I go, pretty much the max I'll be moving is roughly around 1700 miles.
I'll be moving alone, with a uhaul and a car.. my problem is.. the car. I dont want to sell it (i'm already upside down in the loan, i might as well drive it as long as i can)... but I'm trying to weigh my options.
One option is to drive the uhaul and get those flatbed pullalong trailers they sell to tow your car behind it. I'm not exactly sure how safe this is. This is probably the cheapest option, however the most risky. Has anyone used this method?
The other option is to hire someone to drive it/pick it up with their big rig truck, I read online that that can cost anywhere from 400-1200..not really sure on that price as i'm not sure where i want to move yet. Looking at Portland Oregon, maybe tennesse, maybe north carolina.
This option is obviously more secure as it would probably either be enclosed on a truck or on one of those stackable car trucks you see with like 20 cars/trucks going to dealerships,etc.
Has anyone had this delimia, if so, what did you do and what did it cost? I'm wondering if the risk of driving the uhaul with my car on the back of it is worth the reward of the cheaper moving cost.
(I looked into having it moved by train, but the MINIMUM is $750 with Amtrak)
Also, before anyone asks, no i cannot move with everything in my car, i have a 2004 eclipse, so i could probably fit 2 boxes in there :P
