Shipping car from NJ to OH

Hey Guys,
I just picked up a 2010 335i Coupe on Lease Trader. I need to ship it from New Jersey to Ohio this week and I was wondering if anyone had any tips or could recommend a shipper.

Thanks,
Mark

Purchase a one way ticket on your favorite/cheapest airline. Drive it home, Cleveland to NJ is 6 to 8 hours depending on route. Nothing beats bonding with you car for 6 hrs. I did the same think and drove from Philly to Columbus, 8 hrs on the PA turnpike.

It's a lease... he might be limited to a mileage limit.. so..... (but the mileage overage costs might be the same as shipping cost.)

500 miles , ~8 hours, why not drive it back? won't cost more than $100 in gas.

I can't imagine a shipping company would be less than $500-800 (guessing)

Maybe, but even so 500 miles at 0.16/mile or 0.20/mile is $80 to $100 bucks, plus airline ticket $150, plus gas $100, comes out to $350. Shipping is going to run $400 and up for an open trailer, even more for enclosed. Comes down to time, it will take a full day to fly and drive vs. having it delivered. If you have the time, driving is a great option, if you don't have the time, then have it shipped.

Me personally, I enjoy traveling and the opportunity to drive on roads I have not traveled.....

Drive it. When I sold my GTI, i picked up my buyer who flew in from Ohio, drove him to my house, shook his hand and off he went.

True, except the OP will have to wait a week or more for it to be delivered. Transporting cars this way is not like Fedexing a box from NJ to Cleveland.

I used www.uship.com and the guy that won my bid was BigCity. Pretty good guy to use.

My car went from a BMW dealer in MD to Buffalo NY. Cost me about $600 for it, which was pretty much the standard price I was being quoted.

it'll be a lot cheaper for you to fly out there and drive it back. It's only like 9 hours from NJ to Ohio.
