I am planning on moving from Seattle to San Rafael!

So here's my deal. I am flying twice to California this month. Once for Betty's funeral (next weekend), and once for spring break (on the 19th). Both times I expect to fill two suitcases with ITEMS. That might take care of something like half of my possessions.

But I don't know about the actual time for me to move down. There are a few things, like my computer, printer, monitors, and a few other things that shouldn't go on a plane. So I have to think about driving down...

So I'm trying to think of the most economical way to do this. Budget is $200 for a one-way 10' truck rental from Seattle to San Rafael, not including gas money (around another $200). But I don't know if I'll really need an entire moving van; especially with my two plane trips I'll probably only need a car.

Car rental places do rent cars to people under 25, for a small fee. But I'm having trouble finding one that lets you drop the car off in another state. Enterprise does only in-state for a select few states. I don't know about any other ones.

Or is there another option I'm missing? Anyone in Seattle going down to California soon that wants to take all my stuff? Anything else? Bleeeh, I just need advice as usual.

To get home from the John Muir trail I rented a car from Budget in Reno and dropped it off in San Jose. They charged like, 14 extra bucks because I'm under 25.

You could pay to get it shipped....

Well right now I don't know what "it" is. Pretty sure it's enough to fill the back seat of a car, though - and that might be pretty expensive to ship. Also I don't like shipping fragile things.

Well, like, depending on how boxy you can get whatever it is to be... it may be cheaper than renting a car. I hear people get their possessions shipped across the country all the time.

Renting a car may be your best option, though!

If Seattle wasn't JUST TOO FAR to make me not want to drive home for a week, I'd say I'd drive down to CA and possibly take your stuff. But 15 hours each way is too much of my break. :\

Aw but thanks for the thought! I actually talked to my mom about this and she might be able to drive up. So that looks like my best bet right now.

After I come back from break she might drive up one day, spend another day in Seattle, and drive me and my stuff down the next.
