transporting a dog down to Zihua?

I know this is opposite of what many need to transporting a rescue to the states.
I have a Mastiff that needs relocating to Zihua in the next month or two. Airlines wont fly him because he is too big. So my only options are to drive him down myself or does someone know a service that can drive him from Tijuana to Zihua, I can accompany the trip and take care of fuel and time. Does anyone have any suggestions. I am San Diego. Tally Ho maybe you have suggestion since your from SD as well? It was nice meeting you in front of Thompson last time. small world!

Not from San Diego, we are from the "other" Silver Strand Beach.

We have the guy for you. He regularly delivers vehicles to and from the US and Canada, and the best part is that he does it completely legally.

We finally met in person several months ago when a man who owns a condo here had a situation where he had driven his truck down from Arizona, then when COVID hit, panicked and flew back leaving his truck here. Time passed, his vehicle permit expired, the battery died and he wanted his truck. We heard about the situation and hooked him up with Barry, who had the battery issue handled, got a temporary vehicle permit issued with permission for him to drive it and remove it from the country. Insurance was also purchased. It was very successful, both parties were happy, and he does that kind of thing regularly.

When you contact Barry, tell him we gave you his e mail address: toyhauler4u@gmail.com

If you need info on the very easy pet permits, just ask.

It was nice talking to you too. Coming fishing soon?

Blazian, were you able to secure someone to help you transport your dog? If so, may we ask how much the service costs? You can send me a personal message if you feel uncomfortable relating that information here. Many thanks!

The referral that I provided above charges a flat daily rate and actual expenses.

He also does a lot of transport of "stuff" but only when accompanied by the owner of said items. So, moving here??? He would be the guy for you.

My apologies for not being more forthcoming. Actually, now that Your Humble Fellow Zihuatanejo-phile is semi-retired, any and all reasonable excuses to travel down to my favorite location on Earth are desperately sought after. Therefore, I was hoping to coax what the going price would be for transporting items from the border down to Zihua. I guess I could just be honest and ask your referral for the information, 'fessing up that I might just become some of his competition.
