To ship or to drive that is the question....

We are getting ready to move across country. We have two vehicles. Gas would be about $1000. Shipping would be a few hundred dollars more. Which would you do?

Extra:  We plan on driving at least one of them to pull our camper.

  • I would ship, all those miles on the car would probably end up costing more in wear and tear than the extra money in shipping.

  • Shipping seems more reliable to me and you never know how much gas will cost, you have to factor in getting lost or taking the wrong turn a few hundred times as well. Regardless of all this imagine the stress factor!!

  • You have to drive across the country to get there anyway. So I think if you like to drive than drive. I am not a shipping fun. Anything can happen with your stuff. I think we would drive defo. Actually we did when we moved. It can be so much fun as well as pain. It depends on you:P We like to drive so we kinda enjoyed it:)
