OIC, you thought I was asking for RH77's specific situation and not about how the statement applied in general, so to speak. It's no sweat. Better spending time here than arguing with the fruitcakes on PO dot com about how everything isn't made from oil.

I would think that borrowing your brother-in-law's pickup truck when you move would be the classic example of tag-teaming w/ someone else's vehicle.

That really is the best way to go, I wouldn't want to own a full size truck, but I can barrow one from my job, along with a 16 foot flat bed trailer, for smaller loads I can barrow my parents Ford ranger, or I can barrow a friends minivan.
If I drive in to town I have a friend with a number of bicycles that I can barrow as well.

but it is nice to be able to haul a motorcycle home, or scrap wood, without renting or owning, just fill it up with gas when your done.
and I love being able to barrow a bike to putter around town, I haven't installed a bike rack on a car in years.
