Further information: I am mature (57) careful and responsible, fully insured and will take great care of your car or goods . I have owned a garage in the Tamar Valley in East Cornwall , since 1984.
I am a motor vehicle engineer and classic car enthusiast and specialise in transporting vehicles in the UK and throughout Europe.
I can do this for you as I am delivering /collecting a vehicle in the area.
Your vehicle will be transported on a recently built Mercedes Sprinter Transporter or on a new Brian James Transporter Trailer.
If you have specified a driven service, your vehicle will be driven with care and fully insured on trade plates.
I take great pride in providing an efficient and courteous service and ensuring customer satisfaction.
Recently I have driven a Porsche from Italy to the UK for a Formula One Team Manager, delivered a Morgan from Blackpool to the South of France, Transported a Vintage Jaguar SS100 from Bordeaux, France to the UK as well as many other vehicles throughout the UK and Europe.
I will always try to match any reasonable bid, please ask before accepting an alternative quote.
May I ask what is wrong with the Camper, is it actually a non runner or has the MOT and Tax expired, or some other issue?
I specialise in driving vehicles to and from Europe, many of them campers.
Many Thanks Chris
The camper has no MOT or tax and the battery is dead.
The pickup location is quite remote and I doubt you'd get anything big enough to carry the camper in to us, so I will probably have to replace the battery and drive it out to the car park in our village, so it will be driveable at that point, albeit illegally!
What sort of timescales are we talking?
Due to the difficulty in getting making a deal to sell the van without anyone seeing it first, I probably need it delivered to my sister in Arlesey near Hitchin (on the Herts/Beds border) so that I can get dealers to come to me there. Does that affect the quote - I didn't have a clear plan when I made my initial request and I can't remember where I put as the destination?
PS. The detail page here says "Driven" but I requested transport, can you confirm that the quote is for loading transportation rather than driving. -
Hello Dave, and thank you for your message.
Yes, my quote is for a driven service, it would be on trade plates so no tax and MOT is not a problem. It will also be fully covered by my insurance.
I'm just about to board a plane to Alicante to collect a Mercedes Motorhome in exactly the same situation as yours, next Tuesday another from Switzerland. It's what I do!
To put it on a transporter will be very expensive and unnecessary.
I can deliver wherever suits you, Arlesey would be fine.
I have to switch my phone to flight mode now.
Many thanks Chris
OK, that sounds good to me. When can you collect our van and deliver it to my sister? I need to get potential buyers booked in and sort out my own travel.
Some time in May would be ideal, the earlier the better. Can you manage that?
Sorry for the late reply, I was driving, I'm now at Calais having driven up from Alicante.
I'm off to Switzerland next Tuesday to collect another camper.
Would the first week in May suit you, either Tuesday 3rd or Wednesday 4th depending on flights.
I guess Turin is the nearest airport, I flew down there about five weeks ago and drove a camper back to Yorkshire.
I'm taking a boat to France the following week so it sounds like the dates suit us both.
If this suits you please go ahead and accept my quote and I'll get it done for you.
Many thanks, Chris -
