Hi guys. Going to buy a nissan liaf this will be my first electric car. I have wanted to switch from fuel to electricity for a long time, but I am in doubt about buying a new car, that's why I wanna buy secondhand car to try it.
I have a friend who will sell me his 2017 leaf. But there is a problem that my friend lives 250 miles away from me, and I need to ship it. Maybe someone knows reliable people who transport electric cars. I would be grateful for any information.

Not sure how many Americans we have in here, but deffo some who may be able to help. Would be useful if you were to say where the car is coming from, and where it's got to go to! Maybe you could find some short-of-cash-student or a famly friend to take a train/greyhound trip & fetch it for you? In UK we have companies who sell car insurance for anything from hours to days, surely must be some in US.

I think it's a good idea to find someone you know and a friend who can do it for you. As far as I know, most companies are brokers.Also I can recommend you to read some articles, tops, or guides like this one about car shipping or just Google some companies check their rate on reviews websites after get some quotes from guys with nice rate and compare prices to choose the company you prefer. Good luck with your shipping

Is it really worth the hassle of getting it delivered? With a bit of planning you could easily go there and drive it 250 miles back yourself while also giving yourself a few stops to practice with public charging. Take a look at plugshare.com to get an idea of where you could charge along the way.

Wasn't there a USA organisation (sorry, organization) who would drive an RV say Idaho to Florida for you, so you'd get the plane and your RV would be there waiting for you ? ( & you could offer to drive someone's as a holiday deal thing, save you renting one, you'd basically move one for its owner )

Change a letter and maybe they are expanding in to relocating EVs across the USA as well as RVs

Yes, I could do it myself, but now I do not have time for this

If the OP lives in the USA, perhaps he would be wise to go onto the "MyNissanLeaf" forum which is based there. There are some great guys on the forum and I'm sure someone there could give the information he needs.
