Should You Drive or Ship Your Vehicle?
One of the most important factors to consider during the relocation process is vehicle transportation. Should you drive to your destination or should you hire an auto transport company to ship your vehicle to your new home?
While driving your own car is an option, you also need to consider this: it may also be the more expensive one, especially if you are planning on driving a long distance. There are numerous hidden costs embedded in driving your car yourself, such as lost days of work, hotel accommodations, food, and gasoline. You also need to consider the wear and tear that driving such a long distance could do to your vehicle.
However, one of the big advantages of driving yourself is that you can take a scenic route and visit various parts of the country that you might not get to see otherwise. Have fun with it—consider it a vacation!
If you choose to ship your vehicle, expect to pay some large out-of-pocket expenses, including the cost of shipping your vehicle—which varies greatly depending on where you’re shipping it to—-and the airfare (or other means you are using) to get to your final destination. You may also need to rent a car while you are waiting for your vehicle to be delivered. Keep in mind that choosing to ship your car is a great decision if you need to be able to get to your destination as quickly as possible.
Driving to your destination can be an exciting experience. You’ll have the opportunity to explore the country and see sites that you may have never seen before. However, driving such a long distance could be more expensive in the long run due to high costs of gasoline, fuel, hotel accommodations, and missed days of work. If you need to move quickly and settle into your new home in a short period of time, consider auto transport services.
