Buffalo, NY to Savannah, GA. over 900 miles.
Minimum cost of renting a uHaul/Penske with car carrier = 800.
Fuel (diesel) cost of driving the truck (avg. 10mi/gallon) = 400.
Now compare that with what it cost me.
Bid price ~ 350.
Fuel (gasoline) for driving my car = 100.
and I didn't have to load/unload all that stuff I got shipped. The delivery date was well spaced out so that I could be at the origin for loading and destination for unloading. Wasn't charged for storage over the intervening period.
Talk about hassle free value for money.
