Getting my Tornado down to Devon

I need to get my old RIB down to Devon from Glasgow, then back up. Its a 5.4 on an unbraked trailer (bearings re done last year) with a YAM 75 and single console as the tubes need replacing, any ideas guys ?

Hi Paul. Shiply is a website where you can find companies who are doing the run you need to do but with no load, hence they charge you very little to do the delivery:

Top advice fella, I am indebted to you Its a reverse auction site.

Started at 550 .. and ended with a quote for 225 .. now .. I took a slightly dearer quote, because I liked the cut of the mans jib.. but .. that trip would have cost me 400 in petrol to get down and up, plus an overnight stay .... not to mention 2 days out of my time which I could ill afford.

You need to check whether your man is insured though, some of the quoters wouldnt reply about this when I asked

Also .. if youre asking some questions of a quoter, just a heads up cos everyone can see your conversation, its not like ebay where thats private

edit .. dat funny .. I entered the above as
