Car Transportation

Hi,
I am looking at purchasing a car which would need transporting from York to Devon, can anyone recommend any good companies that might be willing to undertake this job?
Many Thanks
Jon

You can hire car transporter trailers for about 50 a day, have you got a towbar.
They usually come with built in winch and tilting bed for easy loading.

You have got to be really careful with weights if you hire a trailer. For IVA I hired one. It was a really nice trailer with a tilt bed and really low load height which made loading easy. I have the correct driving licence to tow trailers (+E, I think).
My car was a Citroen C4 which could tow up to 1.3 tonnes. I took my car to IVA and when it was weighed I realised that the ULW of the trailer plus my car was only 10 kg under the max allowed for my car. Phew! I was at a VOSA test station with a car and trailer that was only a few pounds away from the max I was allowed to tow with my car!
These trailers weigh about 700kgs + unladen! - be careful!
