Best way to pay off Escape trailer balance

For those of you who have recently picked up your new Escape...Conga-Rats!!!

My question to you folks is how did you conduct the final payment? I intended to send them a check, but one of my buddies advised me that wire transfer may be a better option. I sent Sarah an email, but would like some input.

What say you?

We made all payments by check (mailed via UPS) except for our down payment and final small payment. Those we paid via credit card.

I used a check for all but a final couple grand that was paid via CC at closing. The personal check sent via USPS worked fine for me.

my first payment was via cc and the other 2 were via regular check. If there is a small balance due they will take cc if less than $2500
remember to double your postage when mailing.

We did a wire transfer directly to ETI's US bank. Canada Post was threatening to go on strike at the time and we couldn't risk any delays. Mailing a standard check would have been slightly cheaper and a lot less hassles.

I just paid off my balance last week and did a wire transfer from my credit union. It went very smoothly and I got a good exchange rate, but the credit union charged $40.00 for the wire. Sounds like a check sent via USPS will work just fine.
