As regular readers know, I’m in the process of relocating from Tampa to Bellevue, and one of the questions I faced was whether to drive or ship my car cross country. I decided on the latter after getting some quotes, since gas alone would’ve cost me almost as much as just shipping the car.
So I went ahead and made the booking, and got to the confirmation page in a matter of minutes. It included the following:
This cracks me up on so many levels:
- “It is usually not necessary”
- “Even with the extra for the carrier, there are still no guarantees regarding pickup and delivery time”
- “A little,” “a lot,” and “a lot more”
Then again, it felt no different than being waitlisted for an upgrade while being offered a buy up to first class at check-in…
On a more serious note, I’m curious, should I do it? Anyone have any experience with this? If $100 got the car there a few days earlier it would totally be worth it. But I’m not convinced it actually makes a difference.
