Just a thought here, but you could find an older 1 ton diesel truck for less than the cost of one round trips transit expense of having it hauled.
Especially in Michigan, you folks have a bumper crop of great running old trucks with , shall we say, less than show quality body work
$3-5 grand would buy a reliable hauler for a seasonal haul.
As far as renting, consider 2 years ago I had to rent a uhaul truck to haul my car home to Arkansas from Buffalo NY after an engine blew. It cost me a little over $2000 + gas @ 4 mpg ( and if I hadn't taken a bunch of skinny roads that are barely on the map, I would have gone over the mileage allowance and been charged $$$ more )
