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?

The Alps are between here and Vienna (sort of).

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.

Worth a shout out to Jarvis Transport (based in Dublin), and to Dominik who's the owner there , https://www.facebook.com/jarvistransireland
