Re: Dirt Question about automobile
There are a lot of online resources for car transport companies. You can get quotes and various shippers will bid for your business. We did that to get a car up from Florida to NY, and it cost about $450, which was cheaper/easier than flying down there and driving it back.
Alternatively, I wonder if FL has some sort of temporary licensing system. I've wondered about this (but never researched it in full) because I'd like to go to FL to buy a rust-free older car and bring it north.
