Anyone used or can recommend a good car transportation company?

I've used this company many times and have nothing but praise for them.

Speak to Paul, he should be able to see to your needs.

My Zed came over from N.Ireland with 'Woodside Motorfreight'' but just realised they're based over there - might be an option if they are UK based too. They seemed to do a good job, car arrived in perfect condition (though a little dusty from the journey!), on a large open transporter - was quite releived to see it tucked away at the bottom out of harms way. Spill the beans then Marcus!!

It's just a new shopping rocket for the wife, a full fat Clio RS 200 with all the best bits, Recaros, cup chassis etc. It was a cancelled order from a Renault dealer in Inverness with around £3k in added optional extras, which amounts to a lot toys with Renault

Sounds pretty good. Post up some pics when you get it. Just checked how far away Inverness is from yours and it's a bloody long way!! I paid 200 to get the Zed over to give you a benchmark figure. Won't they deliver??

That's how mine arrived - no problem. I guess they load them in order of drop-off to minimise taking them on/off at each stop off?

A single delivery will be fairly expensive, a loader with 8 or 10 other cars will be much cheaper.
