Need someone to drive your car cross country?

I am planning on traveling from Atlanta, GA to Portland, OR this coming January or February. Does anyone need a car driven out there? Or have any inexpensive ideas on how to get there?

paying you gas money

Hi!

Sounds like you could use some $$$ for your bus and my situation is this:

My husband passed away in Los Angeles and left his prized big screen tv and tv stand to his daugther Jennifer, who is a teacher at Wake Forest University in No. Carolina. 

Are you interested in taking these two items to her and I could pay you gas $$$? All the cross country movers have a minimum and it doesn't make sense unless you are moving at least a 1 bedroom apartment, and all I have is two items.

We live in Los Angeles near Wilshire & Highland and on the other end we could arrange a convenient drop off where it wouldn't take you out of your way.

What do you think?

My cell is 323-828-6678. Thanks!

Buffy Lyn Roney

 

 
My husband passed away in Los Angeles, leaving his prized big screen tv and tv stand (a wooden chest with drawers) to his daughter Jennifer who is a teacher at Wake Forest University in No. Carolina.
 
I need to move the items to her, but the moving companies all have a minimum and I only have the two items to move. I would like to move them some time in the next few months.
 
Would this fit in to your plans at all? Jennifer actually lives in Kernnersville, No. Carolina. Will you be going in that direction anytime soon?

RE:Drive car across country from San Francisco to Maine

I charge $10 an hour driving time based on Google Maps driving time between two points. You put the starting point as San Fracisco and ending point is Maine. Google says it is 49 hours driving, however not having where in Maine Google maps put me the actual driving time maybe different.

You pay all expenses which include meals, motel, fuel, two plane tickets, one from San Diego where I live and one from Maine back to San Diego, plus my driving time. Right now without knowing the final destination in Maine, my charge for just the driving is $490 based on the current destination of Maine.

Southwest has flights to San Francisco for $164 on June 17 just for an example and from Portland, ME to San Diego it is $232 on June 23rd.

I put all expense on my credit card with the exceptions of the plane tickets that I ask that you put them on your card. When I purchase anything related to the trip that I purchase I ask for two receipts, one for your records and one for my wife's records.

I can supply you with references of people that have known me over 40 years, proof of insurance, copies of my drivers license and driving record.

Driver for hire

I am a driver for hire to drive your vehicle to your final destination. To start off I live in San Diego, CA. I can travel anywhere except Mexico. I can drive both automatic and standard transmissions. My starting point can be anywhere, but my final destination is San Diego. If you are within a 2 hour drive of San Diego you would pay round trip for my wife to take me to your location, this is for fuel and driving time. For a 2 hour round trip it would be $80, $10 and hour driving and $40 for fuel. If it is more than a 2 hour drive then most likely would need a plane ticket. So let's say you are in Chicago and you need your car in San Diego you would fly me to Chicago and I would drive your vehicle to San Diego. If your vehicle is being delivered to a place that is 2 hours or less from San Diego then you add the round trip expense to the trip. If it is more than 2 hours then some other transportation would be needed. I use Google to figure the driving time, for example Google says it is 31 hours to drive from Chicago to San Diego. The driving cost is $310 even if it take 35 hours it still is $310 for my driving time. I charge nothing for waiting time, example if your vehicle breaks down in route and I have to wait a few hours or overnight there is no charge main reason is that you are already paying for meals and motel so that might be an added cost to you for extra meals and motel night that makes an added cost to you. I am trying to keep your cost down while I am making a few dollars. You pay all expenses which include meals, my driving time, motel, plane ticket and fuel. I put all expenses on my credit card with the exception of the plane ticket I ask that you put the plane ticket on your card. I ask for 2 receipts for all purchases, one for your record and one for my wife's records. My email is mdougher4@cox.net

Willing to drive a car from East Coast-West Coast or Vice Versa!

Hello everyone!

I am looking to drive someone's car from the East coast to the West coast or vice versa in the Summer of 2015. I would be willing to do so for free, including paying for my own gas.

I am interested in taking a cross country trip before I graduate. I am hoping we can both help each other out! Please feel free to contact me with any questions, or if you are interested in working together. My email is morgan.cooney320@gmail.com.

I am a retired teacher, 62, and an experienced driver with a spotless driving record. I would drive your car coast to coast in a leisurely pace for fun, but responsibly. You would pay all expenses based on round trip. Expenses are fuel, food, motel, and return ticket to NYC.

My 2015 driving season has already started with a NYC-Vancouver (Canada) driveaway scheduled for the end of March, and I am very excited!

I post various ride offers

I post various ride offers on Craigslist for San Diego where I live. This posting would pertain to your needs:

I will travel to get your car when you do not have time to (Anywhere) (Lakeside)

 

 

Have you had to leave your car somewhere and you do not have the time to get it? I just did a trip to return a car to its owner that did not have the time to fly down to San Diego and drive it back to San Jose. I got up at 2 am and I was on the road to San Jose. I delivered the vehicle at 2 pm to the owner and I was paid $400 to cover the plane ticket from San Jose to San Diego plus fuel, meal and for my hourly driving charge. The ticket was $230, the meal was $16, fuel was around $70 and my driving charge was $80. I was back home by 8:30 pm tired. I charge $10 an hour driving time based on what google says is the driving time between two points. If you have a car in San Diego and needs to be delivered to let's say Chicago you pay for all expenses which includes my driving time, fuel, motel and return plane ticket to San Diego, or if it is in Chicago then you fly me to Chicago and pay all the expense as previously stated. The only difference in me driving and you driving is the hourly charge. You lose no time with having to travel to get the car and the driving time to drive it to your required destination. I take the hassle away from you, you stay home while I am bringing your vehicle to you. I can supply you with references, proof of insurance, copy of my driving record.

I am booked until 4 Feb 2015. I can fly out on 3 Feb in the afternoon. Southwest has tickets for $289. It leaves at 1:10 pm arriving 11:50 pm. I would need to have a place to sleep then leave early in the morning. I would need you to purchase the plane ticket on your credit card. If you are traveling then all the expenses would be put on your credit card. If you are not traveling with me then I would put the expenses on my American Express card. I ask for two receipts, one for your records and one for my wife's records. My cell is 619-993-6577, home 619-443-6577, email mdougher4@cox.net. Just call or email if you are interested.

This is only an option for you. I live in San Diego you would fly me to Pittsurgh. It is a 31 hour trip according to Google Maps. I charge $10 an hour driving time so my driving cost is $310 flat. You pay all expenses which includes fuel, meals, motels, my driving time and plane tickets to Pittsburgh and return to San Diego. Southwest has $200 to Pittsburgh and $101 from Phoenix to San Diego. I would need a ride to Phoenix and that is an one hour drive. I ask that you purchase the plane tickets on your credit cards and I will put the other expenses on my American Express Card. I ask for two receipts, one for your records and one for my wife's records. I can supply you with references, proof of insurance, copy of my driving record and drivers license.

I’m trying to help my brother-in-law find an affordable way to get from Syracuse, NY (or anywhere remotely close) to San Antonio, TX, where he has a new job waiting. The ideal situation will be to drive someone else’s empty vehicle down, so he can transport some of his belongings. He has a clean driver’s record and can pay for gas and tolls.

If you need a vehicle drive from New York to San Antonio, or somewhere close, please reply ASAP.
