Northern California to Denver Area/ / Then Return

Post by zepher11 » Tue Nov 29, 2022 6:06 am

I need to pick a vehicle up in the Denver area. If I go, I'll have an open 20 foot car hauler.

PM me if anyone has interest. Looking to defray fuel costs.

Thanks!
Zeph

Zepher11,

Just something to think about, I have used car transport companies in the past and have found they are usually more cost effective than to drive both ways with a trailer.

I initially believed the cost would be to high, but with gas prices and and the value of your time, the cost may be worth it to you.

Thanks Brett. I did speak to one transporter and he was about two and a half times my fuel cost. I have since spoken to another transporter and it looks like the cost is only about $500 above what fuel would cost me, not to mention my time and hotels, etc... I'm hoping he can work it in as I would pay for that for sure. Fuel is the real killer nowadays with diesel at $4.99 a gallon and only 11 miles per gallon in my truck.
