This might work out for some, but when you count the rental, the gas, and time to drive it yourself (including one way transportation to get in position) the percentage saved is small. I have a kit coming from Wisconsin later this month, and I did the math - far easier to let Tony do it. Maybe a few dollars more - but I’d spend those buying material to build support structures in the rental to make sure nothing shifted on the way....
