Im sure you've already seen the request but I just wanted to ask a couple of questions properly rather than on a form!
I am potentially buying a boat but transport is an issue so will need someone to tow it! Its a 14ft long dinghy that has a road trailer. It'd need towing from Porthoustock, Helston to Kingsbridge, Devon.
Due to covid-19 there isn't a rush for the delivery to happen, if I go ahead with the purchace I was just wondering if you'd tow a boat as I understand you deal with cars and if £175 is the fixed price?
Thank you for sending a quote though,

Hello Elodie and thank you for your enquiry.
Yes, I realised it's a boat, my write up is pre written and I usually adjust it to the circumstances.
I'm in France at the moment waiting for the ferry back.
Transport is not a problem now as for me it's work, which is permitted.
I can't really do anything on the price I'm afraid, although the actual transport of the boat is not too far, it still involves travelling to collect it and the getting back home after. With cars it's easier as I would search for a return load. The chances of finding a return load which requires towing is virtually negligable I'm afraid.
I hope all that makes sense and would love to move your boat for you.
Many thanks Chris -
That all makes perfect sense, thank you for taking the time to explain it to me!
I would love you to move the boat for me, the sooner the better but I appreciate you might be busier with Covid-19! What would be the soonest available date for you?
Hello again Elodie (Lovely name, are you French?)
I am very busy at the moment, I've just got back from France and Holland, transporting farm machinery. Tomorrow I'm off to Leek, near Stoke on Trent with steam train parts. Saturday we're loading the lorry to go back to France.
Can I move your boat on Sunday please?
I'm booked up solid all next week again.
If Sunday is OK, please go ahead and book. Once you have done so, we will receive each other's contact details and be able to make final arrangements.
Thanks again, Chris -
Hiya - I am half french, my parents met in France and my dad is French!
Sunday sounds great, I'll go ahead and book it now,
Thank you. -

Just booked and paid the deposit. Just noticed that the postcode isn't correct for one of locations, so to confirm, the collection location is Melyngy Barn, TR12 6QR and the delivery location is Quayside Leisure Centre, TQ7 1HH.
