Car transport from Cambridge to Carlisle

It's a while since we have moved any projects and latest acquisition could be thirsty on a long haul. Can anyone recommend an economical car transporter for a Tr7 V8?
Cheers

Shipley is probably the best bet.... but by the time you have paid a chap with a trailer to move it you may as well have paid for the petrol to drive it home... assuming it moves

Yes it moves and is insured and Short Mot would need taxing and has a sticky carb which was the logic behind getting it home to investigate rather than on the hard shoulder of the M42 or M6.

I had "Transports Virgil" bring my Seven from the UK (Ilkeston) to Lisbon, Portugal. He did a great job and had the best price for a door-to-door service. This company is based in Bath, by the way, but I guess it's worth a call.

Thanks again went ahead with any van . com and a Polish bloke brought it north for a little over 200 which seemed fair as I could have spent at least a day travelling and waiting for trains burning off plenty of fuel and eating like a horse on the return trip

Hi I just sent an old fashioned cheque in the past we worked with a firm who would pick up cars while they were passing and store them back at base until they were heading over our way. From time to time they would pay the guy cash and I would send them a cheque
