      Hello, I’m Cal, I’m retired, and have been a long-haul trucker. That means I spent weeks or months at a time on the road. I can handle almost any vehicle, as well as how to handle any kind of road or situation that comes up.

      I buy my own food and beverages, pack light, and I don’t drink or do illegal drugs. I respect your privacy if you want to seal your vehicle for privacy. I can pair you up to my Waze account so you can track me as I go. I ALWAYS DRIVE ALONE – I do not take riders or goods for anyone other than my client.

      There are details to discuss, like costs, expectations, roadside assistance coverage, etc, that we can discuss when the time is right.

      I’m about helping others out. You get what you need to be moved taken care of by an experienced person at a heavily discounted price, and I get to keep busy during my retirement while putting some scratch in my pocket and getting away from the balls and chains of life. Oh, during late autumn, as a trusted community member, I play Santa!

      Let’s talk about YOUR needs!

        Hi Cal,

        I’m looking for someone to pick up a moving truck in Spokane and take over the border to Nelson, BC and then drive our vehicle back over the border and park at the Spokane airport. It would be the week of September 5th either the 5th, 6th, or 7th. The moving company said the truck should be ready one of those days. You have to be vaccinated to make it over the Canadian border due to on-going restrictions.

        Does this sound like something you can do? Spokane to Nelson, BC is 3.5 hours.
        Thanks,
        Michelle

          I think I would need a passport to do a cross border, and a bill of lading. I don’t have a passport. But if it doesn’t require more than a US driving license as is required for air travel in the U.S. I’d be happy to help.

      Hi Jasmine,
      Driving a car from one coast to the other is a bucket list item! I live a few miles from you in Charlotte, NC and would gladly drive your car with no pay. You just pay for gas (or charging) if you don’t mind.
      I am a German engineer, very experienced driver. Have never been in an accident and had no ticket for years. I will take great care of your car.
      It would be great to hear from you!

    Hi!

    We are two recently university graduated friends from the Netherlands (both 23) that are planning a roadtrip starting in San Francisco in the beginning of September to Miami at the end of October. We both are experienced drivers of about six years, don’t smoke and like to keep a clean car. Both manual and automatics are no problem.

    If you have a car that needs to be transported from the San Francisco area to Miami, please let us know via email: [email protected]

    Looking for somebody that wants to have an adventure!

    I am looking for somebody to drive my car from the NY area to the Anchorage area in Alaska. If you have ever wanted to drive the beautiful Alcan highway up to Alaska but didn’t have a vehicle, this is your opportunity!

    I am NOT looking to pay somebody to do this, just somebody that wants to do this out of the sheer adventure of it all. This is a trip I wanted to take with my kids and will do so next summer if there are no takers.

    Please email me if you are interested! [email protected]

    thanks,

    Who wants a HUGE CARGO VAN or CAMPER VAN with tons of storage to move your life from California to NY?
    -OR-
    A CROSS COUNTRY ROAD TRIP in a CAMPER VAN from the CA Bay Area to Niagara Falls / Buffalo, NY?

    DATE: September 6, 2023 for two weeks or less.

    Cost: $950 (Compare to $3000 with Budget Cargo Vans)

    I bought an Extended Chevy Express Passenger Van a couple years ago for a cross country round trip road trip with my wife & 3 children. The van came with 3 rows of seating in the back. We took out the third row to build an elevated bed in the back; leaving the 2 remaining back benches. See the two pictures here: https://healingdivisions.org/van-photos

    The bed can sleep up to 3 people (sometimes 4). Typically, my wife, myself, and daughter would sleep in the bed, and the two boys would sleep across the two back cushioned seat benches. It has tons of storage beneath the bed that was build to easily accommodate plastic totes for organized travelling.

    We are looking to just drive 1-way for 3 weeks in summer 2024 (and fly back)… meaning, you would get to do a similar trip and drive it back to us in Niagara Falls/Buffalo. In our trip, the van got about 20 miles to the gallon… so you should figure that into your budget. Travelling this way enables us to book beautiful campsites across the country (or boon dock for free), and book without fear of the elements (as we bring our own shelter!)

    If you prefer to maximize storage for moving, the bed can be easily disassembled, though of course the bed components would need to come with you.

    We would expect:
    1. The driver(s) to have a clean driving record
    2. A background check
    3. Full auto insurance
    4. A deposit
    5. A maximum of 4000 miles (more can be negotiated for extra fee)

    Hi everyone!

    Me and 4 other friends are planning on making a road trip mid until the end of September.
    This is our second time embarking on such an adventure in the US as last year we managed to drive a car found on this forum, traveling from NYC to San Diego.

    This time we would love to drive from SF, Bay Area to either Utah (Salt Lake City area), Oregon (Portland area), or Colorado (Denver area). However, we can be flexible with the locations as we’ll plan our trip depending on our final destination so even another location might still fit our plans.

    We’re looking for a larger car, possibly a minivan or something along those lines, considering it has to fit 5 people.

    If you need us to bring your car and the information presented above fits your needs, don’t hesitate to contact me.

    please email me: [email protected]
    or message me: 628 468 7201

          Hi Shawna. My name is Mark Dougherty and I am a driver for hire. To give you a good estimate I need your starting and ending point. Your two points NV and WY according to Google maps are almost 14 hours of driving time not 10 hours.
          So lets say it’s 14 hours of driving time and I charge $10 an hour for driving my driving cost is $140.00 plus expenses.
          Expenses:
          Driving: $140.00
          Meals: $40.00 per day x 2=$80.
          Motel: $100.00+/- for one night
          Fuel: Approximately $145.00
          Plane ticket to NV from San Diego and one checked bag
          Return plane ticket to San Diego and one checked bag
          $60 for my wife to take me to the airport and pick me up on my return
          I put everything on my credit card with the exception of the plane tickets, I ask that you put them on your credit card. You only pay what is on the receipts.

          The issue would likely be I would need a passport, I don’t believe I can drive thru Canada without a passport and I will not get the vax. If it is possible to do a ferry from Seattle to Anchorage, and not have to enter Canada, it would be a bucket-list item to go to Alaska.

          Hi Yung. I saw your post for Cal and I would be very interest in driving your car from New York to Kodiak AK. I use Google maps to determine the driving cost. I charge $10 an hour driving time and Google maps says it’s an 88 hour drive. My driving cost would be $880.00 plus expenses.

    Drive my car from Denver to Detroit or Cleveland (or near) – $300

    Hi there! I bought my car in Denver (Nissan Rogue) where it’s stayed since I moved out East. I’m looking for someone to drive it to Detroit, Cleveland, or somewhere else nearby those two cities. I need the car between August 1 and 29.

    Please let me know if you’re interested. I can be flexible with compensation! Thanks so much.

      Hi Solly,

      Happy to discuss this drive with you. If you could just contact me at my email address below with the beginning and ending zip codes as well as the vehicle make and model, I will get back to you with a very reasonable quote.

    Hey hey,

    I’m a 31 year old female from Australia looking to drive somebodies car from the east coast to the west coast at the end of July or start of August (I need to get from Connecticut to LA) but I’m very flexible on locations and dates. I’ve been driving for 15 years and in lots of different countries – including the past 2 months in rental cars and families cars in the US. I am a very safe driver and have reference if needed.

    I love driving and would like to see some more of the country and make a couple of stops before I head back to Australia but can’t afford a rental different city drop fee.

    Contact me on [email protected] if your in need of a car relocated

    Jord 🙂
