Shifting a searider

I need to shift a 4 metre searider by road from the west coast of scotland down to the Avon factory in Wales, on its own trailer (assuming this is easiest). Can anyone suggest who i might get in touch with to get the boat shifted and roughly speaking what the cost per mile is.

Many thanks

Doing it your self is probably going to be the cheapest. That said if you can find someone who is already doing that journey with an empty trailer/truck it shouldn't cost too much. I got a 22ft RIB brought from Scotland down to Norfolk three years ago for £200 by someone who was making the trip to pick some stuff up.

I might be able to I am running back with nothing on the Tow hook from Aberdeen to the South around the fifth April. if that's good for you I'm sure we can probably come to a symbiotic solution.
