A vehicle is between $1100 and $1500 depending on size. The Camry we sent in July was $1100, my truck was $1500. The boat out of Seattle (nearer to where we live) was about $7900 and out of Oakland it was $5600. All of it my money!What is that costing you or is work paying for it?
Not bad for the cars but WOW the boat was a big pill to swallow.A vehicle is between $1100 and $1500 depending on size. The Camry we sent in July was $1100, my truck was $1500. The boat out of Seattle (nearer to where we live) was about $7900 and out of Oakland it was $5600. All of it my money!
Not allowed to put anything in the vehicle. You are allowed to keep your boating related items in the boat as long as they are in storage compartments - good thing there is tons of storage space in these boats. I loaded it up!$5600 to $7900, OUCH !!! My wallet hurts even though it was your money. Do they let you pack your car or boat with other items (e.g. tvs, PCs, clothes, etc. ) since the rate basis is size not weight? I would have shipped it out of Oakland as well even if it meant towing it several hundred miles through two states first.
I wonder if the pricing would be reversed if I called for quotes, that is, $7900 out of Oakland and $5600 out of Seattle?
On the bright side, it sounds like you are moving to beautiful HI, congrats.
What this has taught me is that if have the opportunity to relocate I need to do it though work and negotiate a healthy relocation allowance.
Bummer, I just eliminated that problem from my life!
