Shipping or selling a car

May 14th, 2015 at 05:32 pm

So I've mentioned the plan has been to drive our 2010 Subaru Outback cross country and ship our 2006 Hyundai Sonata. We started discussing other options and one that's come up is selling it where we are and buying a second used car when we arrive.

It will cost $1k to ship. So I've been thinking what about us selling the 2006 Sonata for $6500 and buying a used minivan for around the same price instead?

And we drive that cross country and perhaps keep it for a bit and then sell it? The plan has always been to keep the sonata 3-5 years and it's been 3 years exactly. Then replace it with something else after we decide about more children or what we need.

Would this make sense?

    Could you clarify? You would buy the minivan at your new destination? Yes. I like that plan!

    No we are selling the sonata where we are and buying a used minivan to drive cross country.

    A minivan would definitely have more space and comfort. The Subaru will get shipped or you will both drive with this plan?

    Subaru would be shipped. This is just brought up yesterday as an idea we are toying with.

    If you're going to buy and sell a car, surely it would make more sense to buy at the other end and save on the shipping? Am I missing something?
