My husband wants to take our riding lawn mower with us to the move. It is a small rider but does the job but it will take up too much space in the uhaul trailer, not a truck. Should I sell it or make do and move it ? Experiences ?

Will you need a lawn mower at your new location?

How much can you sell this one for, and how much will a new one cost?

Bottom line IMO - if it's owned, and you can move it with no high additional costs, then move it, Why incur additional costs and the PIA of selling and buying if you can somehow find a way to take it along.

Just my .02.

it's fairly easy to move in a small pickup, if not going to far rent a U-Haul pickup to pull the trailer. A new one can cost over $1,000 so if you need it at the new house take it, if your new lawn is small, sell it.

What "metalman" and "hemlock" said.

I moved mine from PA to SoCal, where I didn't really need it but, it sure came in handy during the rainy season. It was the last thing on the Ryder truck and there was a lot of pushing and shoving to get the Ryder door down

Five years later, I loaded the faithful old gal back on a Ryder truck and brought it to TN, where I used it to trim around trees for several more years, before giving it to a young man who needed worse. It was 19 years old and pretty tired but I had always kept it well maintenanced. It paid for itself many times over before I tearfully watched it go out the driveway.
