Getting a quote always seems tricky.

Few people list prices on websites - I guess there are a lot of variables to be fair.

But £700/m seems to stick in my mind from a thread recently as a guide price - making a SR4 about £3k. A 5.4m may be possible for just under £4k, but not sure if thats b4 or after VAT.

I have the impression Tidel / Tilley may be at the cheaper end of the market, but well reputed, but if it saves £500 is it worth it to go all the way to Cornwall or Devon rather than the guy you can get to in 90 minutes... It will need delivered, left with them and collected at a later date. So at least 2 long trips with the possibility of an overnight. Then imagine if there was any issue and you needed to RTB for warranty work etc.
