Rib in a lorry?

I have sold my boat to a buyer in Denmark. It is a 6.2m rib on a single axle trailer. He is arranging for a large fixed sided lorry with tail lift to collect it from Exeter where I live. He is asking if I know anywhere that has a loading bay so the boat on trailer can be reversed into the lorry. Has anyone any ideas where I could do this from or any other way to load the boat into the lorry? Having made the sale I really dont want to fall at the last hurdle. Help!

You could get a forklift to lift it in?

Rib - Lorry

Most large agricultural dealers (New Tractors) have a loading ramp in their yard - Is there one near you ?

Bribe someone in one of the warehouses on Marsh Barton? There's a few there with dock levellers.

Or a garage with a vehicle lift, provided the lorry will fit in.

It may be worth checking the beam of the boat in the condition it will be transported, as I think most trailers will have an internal width capacity <2.4m.

how about the sort of fork lift they use for stacking boats in dry stacks.
i'm sure they could do it easily enough.
isn't there a dry stack facility in your neck of the woods?

Just what I was thinking. Slip them a couple of quid and they'd life and poke it in the back of a lorry I would have thought.

Bridger Marine?
