Who are the people I need to speak to about getting a car moved, that I can't collect? I haven't even bid on yet and it will likely be next month before I have the funds in place, but I need to be sure I can get it home before I commit to it.

 

It is road legal and has no issues (a rarity for me!) but I'd need to sort out a dog sitter to fetch it myself and that could potentially be even more difficult.

 

It needs to get from Leamington Spa to say Carlisle? Or even a bit further south. Need to be able to drive there and back in a day. Anyone help?

Shiply can be good, it’s variable but I have had some success, especially where they can get one each way. I have contact details of a decent bloke in Huddersfield who may do it for you. He brought the CJ down to me and was sensible money. Leamington to Carlisle would be £200 - £250+ though based on quotes I have had in the past.

Yeah would be another vote for shiply. I run the odd quote on there when i see cars i want far away, You can get really lucky on there if a company is passing nearby with an empty truck/trailer and get a really good price.

Yes please for the contact details!
 

Going through the usual channels atm for quotes but I thought I'd ask here as well as I seem to remember folk ferrying motors about that aren't their own ;)

 

Does drive and is MOT'd so doesn't need trailered. Happy to cover fuel, insurance, train tickets home, etc etc as needed.

Here you go-

But if it’s driveable then getting someone to drive it will be cheaper for sure.

Yes I used to be a trade plater but gave that up a year ago for an office job with a desk, computer, French customers and office politics.

I can still do deliveries but depends really on the money, plus I'd like to be able get back home. My time is very limited to weekends only too.
