    Driver: Las Vegas area to ANYWHERE in the Lower 48 – Starting June 14, 15, or 16

    Hello, everyone!

    I am a middle school social studies teacher with a summertime driving side hustle. Although I am generally willing to begin a trip anywhere in the Lower 48, I will be in Las Vegas next week and would be interested in assisting you with a trip out of Las Vegas that starts on June 14 or June 15 (or potentially starting on June 16, depending on the length of the journey).

    I am an experienced long-distance driver with a clean driving record and insurance. If you are interested, I would love to speak with you. If so, please email me at [email protected] with details so that I can provide you with an estimate.

    Thanks!

      UPDATE TO MY RECENT POST SHARING MY AVAILABILITY TO DRIVE OUT OF LAS VEGAS AROUND JUNE 15, 2022:

      I have secured an opportunity that will be taking me out of Las Vegas shortly after I arrive next week. Because of that, the original post is no longer applicable. With that said, if you are interested in considering me as a driver for a trip in the future from anywhere in the Lower 48 to anywhere else in the Lower 48, please contact me at [email protected]. Thanks!

    Hi!
    I love in the Greater Toronto Area in Canada and am available to drive/re-locate your vehicle anywhere in Canada or the USA. Ideally I would start in the Detroit-Toledo-Toronto-Buffalo corridor and am willing to take your car wherever you need it to go. I’m in my late-40s, ultra clean driving record, and have some time to offer this service as well as hopefully see more of the USA and Canada along the way.
    WIN-WIN!
    Will negotiate price depending on trip!
    Please send me a text at (289)414-0610 or email through this post.
    Thanks!

    Looking for someone to drive my 2016 Honda Civic from CA (flexible on location) to the east coast. Ideally Charlotte, NC but we are flexible on drop off location. The car is dog friendly, feel free to bring a furry friend. We will be moving from CA to CLT end of July but we are flexible on when you would like to start and end your trip. Text: 703-400-2551

    We are not looking to pay someone, so please do not contact us if you are looking for payment. We would like this to be an equal opportunity for us as well as someone who would like a vehicle to drive across country.

    I am driving from San Jose, CA to Atlanta, GA on June 13th, arriving in Atlanta on June 16th. I am flying from San Diego to San Jose arriving around 10 am. I will be heading out as soon as I pick up the car I will be driving to Atlanta. I am looking for a female passenger that needs to get to Atlanta. I am being paid for doing this trip so we could share a two bed motel room or you can get your own motel room. The only thing you pay for is whatever you buy which includes your meals. About me: male, 75, married, non-smoker and not 420 friendly. You: female, no drugs, if you are a smoker it will only be done at breaks only.
    My cell is 619-993-6577 email [email protected].
    I will have a senior dog riding with me and she does not get along with other dogs or cats so no pets.
    I will be traveling on I-40 so check Google maps to see my route and see if there is an on and off ramp that I could pick you up easily.
    Thank you for reading

          You are sadly mistaken. This is a quote taken directly from your post:

          “I am being paid for doing this trip so we could share a two bed motel room or you can get your own motel room. The only thing you pay for is whatever you buy which includes your meals”

          This is not a dating site. This site is used for people seeking driving help and services. Plenty of other sites for you to try and pick up women.

    Are you planning on moving cross country and you want to see the sights along the way but you don’t want to be the driver, then hire me. As long as everybody has a seat and everybody is buckled in then you can hire me. I charge $10 an hour driving time plus all related trip costs which includes meals, fuel, motels, plane tickets (I am in San Diego, so my starting and ending point is San Diego). The driving cost is based on Google maps going from Point A to Point B to point C and so on. For example San Diego to Portland, OR is 17 hours, so that is Points A and B and for Point C is Denver, CO is another 18 hours and for your final destination Long Island, NY is Point D is 28 hours for a total driving time from Point A to Point D is 63 hours and my driving cost is $630 plus the expenses that I mentioned before.

    This link will take you to a story that was written about me and other drivers like myself:

    My wife and I are looking to drive from CT/MA/NY/NJ to Idaho or surrounding states sometime in May, June, or July. The sooner the better.

    We are both professionals in our 30s with clean driving records and have driven cross-country several times. We would drive ~8-10 hours a day until reaching the final destination without any detours or unplanned stops. We can also drive manual.

    Let us know if this would work well for you!

I am looking to help someone out and drive their car to the east coast for them (ideally Bay Area (Berkeley) to NYC/D.C but as long as I am able to get a train or alternative means of transport to D.C. I can do it).

      Looking to leave May 23 and would have the car to the east coast by mid-June at the latest.

      I’m looking to drive someone’s car from the Jacksonville, FL area, Florida, and you can reach me at the address above. About me: I’m 68, married, a father and grandfather, I play Santa, I’m retired from AAA, and have AAA Premier with the 200-mile tow available. I’ll drive your car for $10 per hour based on Google maps, adjusted for breaks for fueling, and rest breaks. You pay for overnight stays, I stay in low-cost hotels, and for fuel, in advance with traveler’s checks. I’ve been an over-the-road trucker and am rated a “good driver” by AAA insurance, my carrier. I have 100/300 coverage and I’m looking to leave the Jacksonville area on the 14th or 15th of this month.

      I will drive your pickup, suv, van, motorhome or any other vehicle from anywhere near Cedar Rapids, IA to anywhere near Redding, CA. This time I need to leave Iowa between May 4th and 6th, and would be flexible with locations. We make one or two trips a year to visit family, so if this one doesn’t work out we may be able to help you at a later date on our next trip, to or from or both. I work in the fire service in CA, have a clean, class A commercial license with 15 years experience. Let me know if we can help each other out. Will be cheap and hassle free.
