Hi Frank and Sherry. Welcome to the wonderful world of LBCs. I would also
recommend trailering the Spitfire. I know getting U-haul to commit to a
certain day and time can be a pain. I know cause I used to be the general
manager for the Janesville, Wisconsin U-haul center before I moved back to
Florida. A little advise though, have you checked on a one way rate? It may
be less expensive in the long run. You can reserve the trailer or "auto
transport" as they call it at your local U-haul center for pickup at the town
your Spitfire is in. This will save you dragging it there and back. Good luck
with your new car. I'm sure you will love it.

<< 3) Towing plan two is to rent a U-haul dolly. These probably work great,
but getting U-haul to commit to having one on a certain date in the future
is all but impossible. Also, at $40 per day, a little pricey. Does anyone
know of alternative sources for a similar setup in the central Kansas area?
