I'm looking for a way to transport a car less than a mile from moreton. It has no tax, mot or insurance so needs to be trailered or transported. Does anyone have a trailer they can lend me for about an hour or a transporter in the local area? Not keen on paying a company £30 for 10 minutes work.

Good luck with that, but take in cnsideration their fuel tax and insurance £30 is not a lot.

I just think that £30 for moving a car .9 of a mile is a bit much. Lets assume that insurance and tax is 700 in them spending 10 minutes on this job almost 1/20th of that is paid

I would but that'd be illegal as the car can't legally be on the road.

The driver has to get to you from where he is based so a ten minute job by the time he arrives loads and unloads would be more likely to be 30 mins , so with his costs taken out he really isn't asking a fortune.

I'm not going to argue about a fair price, I'm simply asking if anyone on here has access to such things. If someone has a trailer that's fine as we have a 4 x 4 if someone has a transporter I will of course cover fuel costs and a little extra for the driver.

I understand that ropes are still legal but not recommended and certainly not for long distances, emergency use only I believe but I would imagine .9 of a mile would not be a problem. Clearly professionals would only use towbars.

I have a towing bar (not rope) you can borrow if you want to move it quickly, or an A-Frame you can hook up to the back of your 4x4 if you want to go driverless and turn it into a trailer (if you know how to use one and where to connect it to).

Just give me a shout if you want to use them and I'll leave them in the shop for you.

I dont know where you get 700 pounds for insurance from you need to be looking at 2500 and thats with a clean licence and 5 years no claims and then you need goods in transit insurance in case you lose the car off the back i would say 30 quid is cheap

30 quid is a steal the chap is trying to make a living
If you drive it and get caught it will be impounded and will cost ten times that if not more to get it back.

Again I'm not opening a debate on the price, I asked if anyone had the trailer or transporter and wanted to make a little extra. The dr is pretty much the only person who has answered the original question, although we have now sorted it. Thanks.
