I'm moving to Philadelphia next month and am considering using Auto Driveaway to transport myself and some of my possesions. Anyone have experience doing this? (more ->)

I'm not on a really tight schedule, I'm on a tight budget, I don't own much, and I'm willing to deliver the car anywhere within, say, five hours of Philly provided my destination's on a bus or train line. Will Driveaway be my best option? Any other ideas on moving cheaply would be great, too.

I once went New Orleans>St.Paul>Los Angeles>San Francisco>Houston with Driveaway cars. You don't have much leeway in terms of route and timing, but otherwise I had no complaints. They fingerprint you, just in case. No idea what it's like for moving, though--that trip was just for the hell of it.

I did it once from Chicago to NY to move myself. I actually had a temporary hitch put on the car and used it to pull a trailer (probably a major no-no). The place I dropped it off at was nice enough to give me a ride to the nearest train station into the city.
