My husband and I are moving from Minnesota to Seattle in four months. We plan to purge our belongings and bring with us the essentials; our pets, kitchen stuff, bathroom stuff, and clothes. We have been sorting out what the most financially savvy thing is to do. Corolla’s can’t haul much so adding a trailer hitch to my leased vehicle seemed pointless. We don’t want to spend over a grand shipping anything. We currently are discussing buying a top rack for the car and attaching items to the top of the car. I did some surface research and it seems racks cost anywhere between $200- 600? Any recommendations (brands, where to buy)?
I also read briefly that top racks can only withstand about 125 lbs of weight… that obviously won’t be worth it if that’s the case. Anyone have more knowledge on this?
Basically, we aren’t really wanting to rent a uhal and drive separate, and we dont want to ship anything either. Advice is greatly welcome!
