The "cheapest" requires luck.
Buy a car-hauler flatbed trailer, then when you arrive at your destination you can sell it (with any luck) for exactly what you paid for it.
Otherwise, if you have a tow vehicle, rent a U-Haul car trailer.
Good luck.

^Alot of people do this when they move to Alaska with enclosed trailers, and if done properly can be sold at a profit to even cover the gas costs.

I didn't read the whole thread and maybe this was mentioned, but a very cheap way to get the car across the country would be to have someone else drive it. I believe there is some sort of website for this or you could use CL or a local forum and put up an ad. You may get lucky and find someone willing to drive it for "free" to a similar destination as yours instead of renting a car. Kind of like airbnb for rental cars. Granted there is the trust factor, but if the car is fully insured what could possibly go wrong? I've heard of people doing this successfully to and from Alaska.

I thought about buying a used two wheel tow dolly and possibly saving myself a few hundred dollars and renting a smaller UHaul truck and just NOT telling UHaul about it. Any suggestions?


Is Dinghy towing an option?
I just reserved a U-haul and car carrier here in FL. We're moving to TN. The carrier is $79.
