With fuel so cheap at the moment your best bet is just to hit the road and do it your self. I've done a few long runs in the last couple of weeks (Scotland, Ireland). It's not so bad! Find your self a nice little B & B on booking.com (there are some incredible deals at this time of year) and it suddenly isn't quite so bad!

So long as you don't value your time! I'd guess Alan is looking at something like an 17 hr round trip... ... Assuming the traffic is ok.

Not sure if deal has been fixed but maybe it be the same price to buy some trailer close to your house ? If you add shipping cost or travel cost ...
Plus you did not look at it before you buy it.

Picked up my new trailer in Southampton two weeks ago. 900 mls round trip.
About 160 in diesel 20 tolls (M6) Premier Inn 80.

Still a lot less than 450. .
If Alan is heading for Aberdeen he'll be passing right past my house (literally).
If you want you're welcome to have it dropped off here and it can lie till you pick it up. I'm less than three hours from Fort William.
