    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!

      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.
      My cell phone is 619-993-6577 my email is [email protected]
      I can do this on Sept 26th at the earliest.
      Sincerely

    I am driving a vehicle to Islip New York from San Diego leaving on Sept 1st returning Sept 6th.I am looking for vehicle that needs to be driven back to the west coast preferred San Diego/LA area. I do have a return flight if I am unable to find a vehicle.
    I charge $10 an hour driving time. I use Google maps to figure the driving time. An example from San Diego to Islip, NY it is a 44 hour drive so my cost is $440 plus expenses.
    The expenses are: meals, motel, fuel, plane/bus tickets and $30 for my wife to pick me up on my return.
    I put meals at $40 per day but you only pay what is on the receipts and I have never gone over $40.
    Motels average $70 per night.
    I put all expenses on my credit card with the exception of the plane tickets. I ask for two receipts, one for your records and one for mine.
    My cell is 619-993-6577, home 619-443-6537 email [email protected].

    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 donโ€™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.

    If interested email us at [email protected]

      I will be arriving back from a sailing trip August 30th and need a car to get to the West Coast from NYC. I have a wedding to film on September 1st, belongings to pick up in Michigan, then it can be a straight shot to LA from there. Does this schedule work for you?

      If so please email me at [email protected]

      This also applies to anyone whose schedule lines up with mine.

      Much love,
      Troy Ozuna

      P.S. I have AAA, insurance, and never been in an accident. I also never speed after having driven around a 1985 van for 2 years that I didn’t bother to drive more than 5-10 under lol.

I am especially looking to find a car to drive from the Aspen/Denver area of Colorado back to the NY/NJ area. I am driving my daughter there for the summer and looking to return without flying. Please contact me, [email protected] . I appreciate whatever help you can provide. Thanks, Michael
