Hello,
Has anyone experienced to haul a car across country before? Indeed, I would like to know how much it's gonna cost to haul a 190e from Ohio to CA. Is there any recommendation or references I can inquire the related info. Thanks in advance.

What luck!! I did just the opposite - hauled an S-Class from California to Ohio. We should have coordinated, and we could have stayed where we were !!

Anyway, I had a moving company haul the Benz inside their moving truck, since they were "dead-heading" anyway. Then just last month, I sent an auto to my brother from Ohio to New Jersey, and that cost about $550.

I'm afraid that if you are set on shipping a car, it might cost you about 90 cents to $1.00 per mile - the Teamsters seem to have flat rates for such hauls, and any quote seems to vary by only tens of dollars, not hundreds of dollars.

Another option is to try to get a college student or professional driver to drive it to Cailfornia. Many transporter companies have this service, and it is much cheaper than hauling on a truck. If you need any more information, please ask.......Andras

Are you necessarily wanting to haul the car or would you consider paying someone to drive it?

Well one of my tenants had her honda civic
transported from N.Y. to S.F. I can't imagine
that she dropped all that much
being a recent college grad.
Perhaps by train ?
Good Luck
