I've seen a horsebox that looks perfect for what I want. I'm not really in a position to buy one just now but this one looks absolutely bob-on and might be cheap as chips. Here it is:
Its got no brakes at all so defo a recovery job to get it home though. Its a 5.6 tonne gross so probably weighs about 3500-3600 empty i reckon. Its 190 miles from my unit which is the only place I could currenly store it but it seems like it could tick enough boxes that I might be up for paying to have it transported. I've stuck it on shiply, but I know there are 20 people equipped to shift a car for every one person equipped to shift something big like this.
Does anyone have any experience of shifting trucks? What sort of machine would be needed to transport this? Seems optimistic to me that a 7.5 tonne flatbed could carry it legally. Any tips on what its likely to cost to get it trucked 190 miles?
