    Anyone got any recommendations for transport of a classic car to South Germany from Ireland ?

    You have us intrigued. Surely you are not selling the RHD 996 to a buyer in Germany?

    How ouch ?

    Galway-Dublin by transporter I was quoted €400 recently.
    Moved a car Limerick-Galway recently at €180.
    We brought in an A6 from the UK a while ago on a shared truck (with about 6 others) and it was €375.

    Have you priced commercial rates on ferries lately - they're gone through the roof.

    Considering the distance and time involved Galway-Vienna I think it's fair value. And, the more expensive the car involved, the better value that will be.

    I have no idea how it compares with other offers or if it is fair value or not. But it's a lot of money! But I guess doing the trip yourself is out of the question because of COVID.

    Galway to Dublin for €400 is insane though, utter rip off Ireland pricing...

    Well, it was the buyer paying it, I just worked off a nett price for the car. Whether it cost €100 or €10000 was up to the buyer to decide on whethe it was worth it.

    As for Galway-Dublin - well, work it out: 198kms to the M50 and unless you've got a backhaul, you have to cover 2 legs. Regular haulage is normally about €1.50/km.

    Trucks ain't cheap you know :)

    Well car arrived in Wien as the locals say, and he's delighted with it.
