Cheaper than driving

I was looking at services to move our car from one side of the state to the other. I came across Auto Transportation Worldwide and they have a neat little calculator thing on their site that allows you to select the city you're starting in and the city you're ending in, pick the type of vehicle you're transporting and baddabingbaddabang it calculates the cost of having your vehicle loaded up on one of those car-carriers to be delivered. It's a great idea if you're... moving... ahem. Not that we're actually going to end up moving any time soon, I'm just saying...

It's also cool in case you find a car you wanna buy on the other side of the country or something. I know a lot of vintage car collectors have their vehicles transported around the country to various specialists for repairs or fancy detail work. They also do boats and RV's

I can't imagine how some people manage to move all the way across the country when they have two cars, a camper, a boat, etc. I think it would be so much easier to just have one of these guys haul your vehicles and fly to the new place. Wouldn't that be so much nicer than driving and pulling it all across the country yourself, Especially with kids, this seems so much smarter. I wonder what kind of fuel they're using.
