Hi all,
Probably was answered before somewhere but I cannot see....
I am looking for a car transport firm to pick up a car for me in Birmingham and deliver to Limerick. I was in touch with NVD who will do it at a good price, but the car needs to start and drive onto the transporter and they will only deliver it to one of their yards in Ireland.
But the car, an MG was in storage for 8 years and although rolling freely, will probably not start... so I need a company that will be happy/able to winch or push it onto the transporter and also nice if can deliver to my home in limerick, although I can get a loan of a trailer on this side of the pond to get it home if need be...
Used to be lots of guys doing this service... but not anymore!
can anyone help with names/numbers?
Thanks!

Hi guys

Im looking to get a car transported From Essex to Dublin.
I will try the above guys, but has anyone anymore thoughts/ ideas.
Maybe some one Dublin area.
Another option would be to have delivered to Kollyhead or Fishguard, and I can go as a passenger this end.

Thanks for your help

John Flynn spot on, door to door. I think he is in the UK twice a week.

Kevin, that is a option. Go on as foot passenger meet them their and come back on ferry with the car. Or call the ferry line and see if they will load the car at UK end and off load it here and then collect. I know they do this for containers !! but what they charge I have no idea. John Flynn can do door to door deoending on where you want it delived too. Often I have met him in route and collected, specially if his truck is coming in on the late ferry as then car can land up a day or in his yard. Even at that one could go collect in Carlow if you cant wait the day or two

What is it ????

Tks okistag

Just trying to get my ducks in a row. Looking at a TR6 soon, sounds like what I'm after, condition, spec, and price. You never know though, fingers crossed.

P & O in Liverpool will load and unload a vehicle in Dublin Docks for you to collect, as far as I know they are the only company to do this....but the vehicle MUST be a runner, I've used this service this for HGV's and a few old classics.
