Anyone got a Car Hauler they will rent or borrow me?

I will be needing it from Phoenix area to go to Twin Falls Idaho to get my 82 and back to Phoenix.

I will be driving a 2000 dodge durango, 4x4 with a class 3 receiver. 

I am a safe driver, i have insurance, and a clean driving record

I need to get my car from Idaho to Phoenix cheaper than shipping the car.

Please let me know if anyone has one or knows someone that has a hauler/trailer I can borrow or rent.

thanks

Marcus 
Headed back to get the 82, grayhound. Figured I'd just drive it back to phoenix after.i fix the exhaust and tune it ip

I've found renting a "local use" for a longer period of time has been less expensive than a one-way rental.  Most outfits charge a "relocation fee" on the one-way that can be quite a chunk of change.  Yes you spend a little more on gas dead-heading one way but it usually works out to be less expensive overall.  Get some quotes on both options before signing on the dotted line.
 
I have a trailer you're welcome to use but I think it is a bit out of the way to come to Minne-snow-ta to fetch it and return it.

Thanks for the information.
ive never needed a car hauler/trailer so Ive never looked into it.
Im thinking if I rent a uhaul in phoenix take it to Idaho get the 82 and return the Uhaul to the same location i got it from I might save some cash that way.

You're welcome to use mine, too, but the side trip to Texas for pick-up/drop off would be a bit of a pain, I'm guessing. Unhappy

I just used a u-haul for a one way trip from Branson, MO. to Wichita, KS area. I did the drop off and the total cost was $140. As for gas usage. My GMC, while pulling, used 12.2 MPG on the back roads (@65)and 13.7MPG on interstate (@72MPG). ok, now on the return keeping the same speeds and same roads. I averaged 21.2 MPG and that's with a 4X4 truck. Love my truck, and hauling a trailer back would not have paid off for me and my truck. That said gas bill was about $135 for 600 mile round trip. Just to let you know I have paid almost $800 in tow bills for this rebuild...might have gotten a cheap used trailer and then resold it...hind sight!?

I just looked up Grayhound on the web they have a web only price of $136.50 not bad as it most likely would cost you something around that if your drove a trailer one way.  

Downside is it is a 24 hour trip by bus.  Leaves phoenix at 11:15AM and gets into Twin Falls at 12:10PM.  

Of course the last 7 years I was working I was normally on an airplane flying somewhere that took 19 to 28 hours to get there at lease once every 3 months.  Just some more info for you.

looks like grayhound (hell hound) is the way i may be going. then driving the car home. need to fix the manifold gaskets first though- not sure if it will handle the trip with the chatter they make.

wow, craigslist posting turned out some interesting results....
a couple of hippies that "420" and will be pannhandling part way.
an ex military person
but the wife is extremely uncomfortable due to the area and the amount of "coyotes" that bring illeagles a crossed the boarder  and individuals that take you for what your worth then dispose of you at their convenience.
So unless i find a reputable ride ill be taking the 28 hour gray hound ride back
