    Rhinebeck, NY to Santa Barbara, CA ASAP

    I have a Jetta in Rhinebeck, NY that I need driven to Santa Barbara, CA (or LA area), the sooner the better. You would pay your own expenses and gas. Thanks!

    Just an option for you and I can do it ASAP.

    This is what I post on Craigslist Rideshare San Diego:

    Driver for your Uhaul/Penske or your vehicle cross country

    If you need a driver for your rental truck or your vehicle please read then contact me.
    I am a driver for people that need there vehicle driven to their destination. I charge $10 an hour driving time. The driving time is determined by Google maps driving time and for example the driving time between San Diego and Sarasota was 35 hours and the driving cost was $350 and that is a flat rate. If the actual driving time is 40 hours the cost is still $350. You pay all expenses which include fuel, meals, motel, return plane ticket to San Diego and transportation to departure airport. I recently drove a Penske 26′ truck from San Diego to Sarasota, FL. I departed at 2 am and drove to El Paso, Tx arriving approx 5 pm, I left at 2 am the next day and drove to Sulfur, LA arriving around 5 pm and again I left the next morning at 2 am arriving in Sarasota, FL around 9:30 pm. This is almost 2500 miles. I flew back to San Diego on the 4th day. The total expenses for the 4 day trip was $1808 for the meals, motel, plane ticket and fuel. The last night for the motel the person who I drove for paid for that night and the rental truck charge was on their card. I charge the expenses on my credit card and I ask for two receipts, one for your records and one for mine. I ask you put the plane ticket on your card. So this is an estimate of what I can do for you if you need a moving truck driven cross country. The cost would be a lot less as the fuel use is a lot less. 500 mile minimum.

    Driving cross-country this summer
    Hi there!
    My husband and I are going from New York to Denver and back to New Hampshire in August (I know we might be a little bit early on this), and wondered if anyone might be moving or need a car driven either direction! Please let me know if you do!
    We’re both great drivers with excellent driving records, and we’re just interested in taking the “scenic” route across the country this summer!
    Would love to work something out!
    Thanks!

    Update Greenfield, MA to San Diego, CA
    I have an update for your search for driver to drive from Greenfield, MA to San Diego, CA. I saw this on Boston Craigslist yesterday:

    $300 – Drive my sweet dog to San Francisco
    I’m looking for someone to give my small (25lb) well-behaved, crate-trained 6-year-old pup a ride to San Francisco.
    Her name is Leah, and she’s a sweetheart. She’s accustomed to traveling in cars (has been on a cross-country road trip about 5-6 times so far in her life).
    She loves everyone, and is friendly with dogs and people. She’s happy to travel in her soft crate in the car if that works better for you.
    If you’re driving cross-counry and think you might be able to take her, please drop me a line and tell me about yourself/your trip.
    Happy to chip in $300 for gas and I will include all the food she needs.

    NOTE: If this ad is up, I’m still looking for someone! I’ll remove it once I find someone.

    The posting is still up. This will help for your cost to get your car to San Diego. I would drive from Greenfield to San Francisco to San Diego. i am available. My cell is 619-993-6577, home 619-443-6537, email mdougher4@cox.net. I live in Lakeside, Ca 92040 which is in east county of San Diego.

    I was just contacted by a woman who was looking for someone to drive her car from Florida to New York. I told her that I was not the right person for her needs as she would have to pay for a plane ticket to Florida as well as a return ticket to San Diego. I am more than willing to drive anywhere but I want to keep your costs down. I suggested that she should look at Craigslist to find someone that would fit her needs. I suggested she check references as I do not know any other drivers who post on Craigslist or other ride boards.

    Reply to alfiesprout,

    If you are still looking for cars to drive from CO to NH this August we may have one for you if you don’t mind going a bit out of your way to pick up the car. We are looking for someone to drive a Honda Civic hybrid from the Yellowstone area back to New England. Western MA specifically but NH would work for us.

    We realize this is a good bit out of your way but thought Yellowstone might fit into your plan for a relaxed sightseeing trip back.

      This is what I post on Craigslist Rideshare San Diego;
      If you need a driver for your rental truck or your vehicle please read then contact me.

      I am a driver for people that need there vehicle driven to their destination. I charge $10 an hour driving time. The driving time is determined by Google maps driving time and for example the driving time between San Diego and Sarasota was 35 hours and the driving cost was $350 and that is a flat rate. If the actual driving time is 40 hours the cost is still $350. You pay all expenses which include fuel, meals, motel, return plane ticket to San Diego and transportation to departure airport. I recently drove a Penske 26′ truck from San Diego to Sarasota, FL. I departed at 2 am and drove to El Paso, Tx arriving approx 5 pm, I left at 2 am the next day and drove to Sulfur, LA arriving around 5 pm and again I left the next morning at 2 am arriving in Sarasota, FL around 9:30 pm. This is almost 2500 miles. I flew back to San Diego on the 4th day. The total expenses for the 4 day trip was $1808 for the meals, motel, plane ticket and fuel. The last night for the motel the person who I drove for paid for that night and the rental truck charge was on their card. I charge the expenses on my credit card and I ask for two receipts, one for your records and one for mine. I ask you put the plane ticket on your card. So this is an estimate of what I can do for you if you need a moving truck driven cross country. The cost would be a lot less as the fuel use is a lot less. 500 mile minimum.

    You pay for meals and I put that at $40 per day, however you only pay what is on the receipt.
    You pay for the fuel.
    You pay for motel nights, I usually stay at Motel 6 and it averages $70 per night.
    I will need a plane ticket if the area is past LA or another state.

      This is what I post on Craigslist Rideshare San Diego;
      If you need a driver for your rental truck or your vehicle please read then contact me.

      I am a driver for people that need there vehicle driven to their destination. I charge $10 an hour driving time. The driving time is determined by Google maps driving time and for example the driving time between San Diego and Sarasota was 35 hours and the driving cost was $350 and that is a flat rate. If the actual driving time is 40 hours the cost is still $350. You pay all expenses which include fuel, meals, motel, return plane ticket to San Diego and transportation to departure airport. I recently drove a Penske 26? truck from San Diego to Sarasota, FL. I departed at 2 am and drove to El Paso, Tx arriving approx 5 pm, I left at 2 am the next day and drove to Sulfur, LA arriving around 5 pm and again I left the next morning at 2 am arriving in Sarasota, FL around 9:30 pm. This is almost 2500 miles. I flew back to San Diego on the 4th day. The total expenses for the 4 day trip was $1808 for the meals, motel, plane ticket and fuel. The last night for the motel the person who I drove for paid for that night and the rental truck charge was on their card. I charge the expenses on my credit card and I ask for two receipts, one for your records and one for mine. I ask you put the plane ticket on your card. So this is an estimate of what I can do for you if you need a moving truck driven cross country. The cost would be a lot less as the fuel use is a lot less. 500 mile minimum.

    Hello everyone — I’m in need of someone who can drive my car cross-country from San Mateo, CA to Mount Holly, NJ. It’s a two-door Porsche Boxster 986. I’m in no rush, and the driver can take their time, stopping at landmarks along the way if they so choose, but this is also to say that I’d prefer to have the car driven by someone looking for a free coast-to-coast trip in a gorgeous and fun car rather than someone trying to make a living transporting cars. Please email me at dplopez at stanford dot edu if interested. Thanks!

      I am available from Oct 15th on. I am trying to combine two possible trips back to back. Both are posted here on My Family Travels, yours and D Lopez above yours wanting his car to go from San Mateo to Mount Holly, NJ.What I am hoping to do is fly to San Mateo get his car, drive to Mount Holly fly to Pittsburgh, drive to Seattle fly home to San Diego. With two weeks before the 15th plus the travel time the plane tickets will be cheaper than if I had two fly cross country.
      The driving time from Pittsburgh to Seattle is 37 hours so my driving cost is $370 plus expenses.
      I can supply you with references, proof of insurance, copies of my driving record and drivers license.

I am based in Fort Lauderdale and I am transitioning from a full-time sales job to a “semi-retired” life on the road. I have a great driving record, a valid passport and I have driven vehicles up to 26 feet in length and 12 feet tall as part of my work career. I learned how to drive in NY City & Upstate NY so I have no issues with winter driving, multiple cross country drives over the Rockies, Experience driving through Canada as well as some basic survival French and a fair bit of Spanish. I also have a clean background check and years of travel planning skills that find the most cost efficient ways to get to or from a driving gig as well as EZ Pass, Sun Pass, Mile ID to track all costs and multiple routing programs.I also work with a Master Auto Mechanic so if you wish I can have your vehicle prepared and checked prior to a trip or checked over upon return. I currently commute between South Florida and Baltimore, MD several times a month. Please contact me about transporting your vehicles to and from South Florida!

    Update Cross Country Driver for Your Vehicle or Rental Truck (East to West to East Coast Your Choice)

    I am driving an RV from Salt Lake City to Boston. I am arriving on Oct 29th, I already have a return plane ticket to San Diego (my home). I would prefer to drive home to earn extra money. I can drive anywhere but my final destination is San Diego.
    To start off my home is in San Diego County. So my starting and ending point is San Diego. Since I have been retired since 2011 and have driving all over the lower 48, Alaska. I charge $10 an hour driving time based on Google maps. For example Google maps says it is a 46 toll free drive from Boston San Diego. So my driving cost is $460. You pay all expenses which are fuel, motels, meals, $60 for my wife to drive me the airport and pick me up on my return. You pay for plane, train, bus and taxi fares. You also pay for unforeseen expenses. An example of an unforeseen expense is if there is a tire blow out and I need to buy a new tire that is an unforeseen expense. I set meal expense at $40 per day and I have yet to have gone over that price. I try to keep motel price under $70 per night. I put all the expenses on my credit card with the exception of the plane ticket, I ask that you put the plane tickets on your credit card. You only pay what is on the receipts. I can supply you with references, proof of insurance, copy of my driving record and drivers license. If you reply to my post please include your name, starting and ending locations, when you want to start your trip and your phone number. Because it is your trip if you are riding with me you decide when we start and stop. I ask no smoking in vehicle, no alcoholic beverages consumed or drugs used and I am not 420 friendly. About me: I am male, 71, married and non-smoker.

    Hello Everyone!

    My name is Merrilee. I am a licensed and seasoned cross country driver available to transport your vehicle from the west coast (SF area) to the east coast (ultimate destination for me is Maine, but anywhere close will be just fine).

    I’ve been driving long distance ever since I was able at the age of 17 (often trips from NY to ME and back again). I enjoy the open road, respect the road and the vehicles I’m in.

    I’m reliable, conscientious and alert.

    I would be traveling with 1 pack, 1 suitcase and a carrier friendly roadcat named Marbles. He also enjoys the road and has accompanied me cross country a handful of times. I don’t smoke, usually camp when I travel and make very good time on the road.

    Give a shout if this situation fits your needs. I am available starting November 20th.

    Thanks for your time, and enjoy the day.
    Best,
    Merrilee

    I travel between New York City and Miami nearly every week. Really bored with flying and love road trips. Let me help you drive or drive your car for you. I’m used to driving everything from compact cars (Smart Car) to luxury vehicles (Bentley’s to Range Rovers). I have had a clean driving record for over 25 years. If you want to include your pet, I love dogs and cats. Not so cool with other types of pets but willing to discuss.

    I also have resources in auto transport companies if you prefer to ship your car rather than drive.
