Anyone based in Horsham Crawley area? I need a LWB Shogun transporting from Cowfold, West Sussex to Rainham, Essex RM13. Ideally, Tuesday next week 24/3/09. According to the RAC route planner, it's 54.19 miles.
We are based in west central Scotland, specialising in the movement and transportation of all types of vehicle, with a particular emphasis on classics.
As classic car enthusiasts, first and foremost, and with over 25 years experience of moving classic cars, our expertise in the more unusual transportation requirements of the classic car market means that we are ideally and uniquely suited to deal with the movement of all classic, performance, modified and executive vehicles.
We cover the whole of the UK and Europe. The vehicle need not be road legal, or even mobile and we can transport stripped shells and dismantled projects too. We can provide track day support for single entrants or teams and we undertake repatriation (but not recovery).
We supply auction - both physical and online - support for both vendor and purchaser.
We provide proper Goods in Transit Insurance up to £20000. There is a small individual premium for vehicles which are of greater value. We do not use "Recovery" trucks or multi car transporters. If you got the car in to where it is now - we'll get it out.
We don't claim to have a "fleet" of transporters operating up and down the country. We do operate from business pemises and offer secure storage if required - in our locked CCTV covered yard, not our front garden.
We only use modern, safe, legal purpose built transporters (we have just this week taken delivery of a new Brian James Hi-Max trailer. Look it up on the web - it's the best there is.) We won't turn up with your car tied on to a Transit, looking like it's being taken to the scrapyard.
We prefer to use 4x4s with trailers for their flexibility. Our Brian James and Ifor Williams trailers can carry up to 2700 kgs - enough to deal with a new Range Rover.
We'll never "buy" work. Our offers will be competitive, but please bear in mind that we need to:- Pay rent and rates Buy and maintain our equipment Pay for Insurance Pay the running costs of the vehicle and driver Pay for fuel and lastly, but most importantly, make a profit (on which we have to pay tax).
If you get a cheaper quote for a like for like service, ask if they're doing all these things.
It's a bit like Ebay but in reverse .. You post up what you need shifting ( anything from a chest of drawers to a boat ) , stick up the weight , dimensions and postcodes invloved then various courier firms post up bids .
You can either accept or decline the bid depending on price etc , plus there's a feedback system on it too so you can see whether the firms who are bidding for your job are reliable or not .
You pay a small deposit through paypal which Shiply keep as their fee , then pay the remainder of the balance to the driver upon delivery .
I used it last week to shift a car and would certainly use it again.
so I am now able to offer a delivery or collection service,,recovery,,I'm based around newport south wales with good transport links to the m4,
I can carry most family cars but have to draw a line at large 4x4s and large vans,but basically as long as its under 1.8tons your fine,i hold a current class 2 hgv license and drivers certificate of proffessional competence,i am fully insured with the correct insurance and have goods in transit insurance upto £20,000,this can be up'd be prior arangement,all cars are treated as if they were my own ,and once loaded will only come off at the agreed destination,
trackday or show hire always accomodated
ring for a quote on 07969236869

hi scotty, I'm thinking of buying a tilt and slide truck and getting into the transportation business, can you give me an idea of what prices i should be charging to be competitive, bearing in mind I'm not looking to under cut all my competitors just be in the same ball park. price per mile would be a start. thanks Ian
Hi all,new on here but we've got to start somewhere(mods are very welcome to have any form of address,copies of i.d etc.).My eBay name is druslyn should you wish to check feedback.
I own two 4x4's and a fantastic twin axle trailer with a wireless 12tonne winch will pull on near enough anything,seized brakes,wheels missing,I've pulled them all.
We've had a Daimler Xkr on there,Vauxhall fronteras,merc g wagons,brand new cars,bangers,the lot.
I'm based in Swansea,South Wales and will travel anywhere in the country,could do abroad with prior notice?
Very good deals,especially for local work,I mean,ask yourself,is it worth the gamble of towing with a rope in this day and age? Did you know the car your towing with a rope/dolly even a spec should be taxed,moted and insured?the police are really clamping down on this now,frightening I know.
Contact me via pm on here's best as my mobile signals not amazing where I live but the numbers 07872079052 anyway,txt is fine.
Fully insured but if it's very high value,I'll have to inform my insurance company first.
I don't really do pence per mile etc,just the job as a whole really.
