I'm one of those people who doesn't "get it" when someone buys a new Civic and then spends many thousands of dollars souping it up with aftermarket everything, sometimes engine swaps. It seems to me...

If the device is electronic and uses a sensor, it is very easy to fix it.

Yes. Don't take it apart. Rent a pickup truck with unlimited KM or rent a bike trailer and attach it behind your car.

Dealer may also have a delivery service for a fee.
