Car hire with towbar - tonight

Hi

Does anyone know where I can hire a car with a tow bar tonight to pick a boat up? 300 mile round trip from Southampton.

I've tried all the usual places, cheapest I can find is a transit van with towbar for 70 - but fuel wise its going to cost 100 to go and get it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Ben

Folkestone.. and its the 3.2 honwave airdeck that was posted in the for sale section. The person I had with a car and tow bar can't use his car as planned :/

Did you spot it via my Linky to it on here or did you see it direct on site ?

Shame it wasn't closer to me as you'd not need the tow bar

The plan is I am going to sell it on again, with my 8hp and the trailer and any other accessories it comes with... I mainly want the engine upgrade - and finding 15hp engines isn't easy!

Lol - glad it helped. Does that mean I get a finders fee

Only slight put off was couldn't tell if it was short or long shaft, looks long in one pic but was on iPhone so hard to tell at the time

I have the same boat - I spoke to the guy on the phone, says it can get 4 adults on the plane with the 15hp... thats good enough for me ... if not.. that engine will be going again too... but worth a try at least
