Military Hotrod Club - Transporting car question/information
03-11-2012, 11:29 AM
Hello to all, I am currently in the process of moving from NC to TX and I am looking to take my Camaro on a trailer w/truck if all possible, my issue is I do not have a truck and I am looking to rent one with a trailer to make the move. I've looked at sites like Uhaul,Enterprise,Budget Etc.. so far the closest one was Uhaul but they do not provide a pick up truck for that kind of trip. I've also looked at getting my car simply shipped out there but the $$$ are way out of budget.
Has anyone done something similar to what I am trying to do, or know of a company that can provide that kind of service please share any information. Thanks:usa:

Well I assume your doing a ditty move? If so I rented a penske truck and car hauler and and moved my stuff from tx to va. I think it was a 16ft truck (which in your case u can get a smaller one) and with the car trailer with gas i ended up spending roughly 1500 for gas and everything... If you are doing a ditty move it shouldnt be bad as you will get paid for the weight of the stuff u move.

If you haul the car, you won't get paid for the weight of the dolly or the car.

Well the move is going to be through the Goverment. They refered me to finance as to they will give me a voucher for the trip from NC to TX for gas etc. I personally wanted to find a way to take the vehicle down there w/out putting the mileage on it.

he's correct about not getting reimbursed for the car or the dolly. I just shipped my camaro from San Diego to Memphis. I've done it twice, once there and once back as I got stationed here and there. around &725 both times on an open car hauler. I beleive thats the easiest way to do it.

Yeah that's looking like an option.

You could scour the classifieds for a trailer then sell it when you get to TX..
