Need to get the estate picked up from Diss, Suffolk to Spalding, South Lincs, anyone know of a reasonably priced outfit ? It's about 60 miles.

The one that is mentioned a lot is Shipley.

Could you not hire a trailer?

Cheers Tim, i've heard that name Shipley before will see if they have a website. Could hire a trailer locally for £30 half day but a bit heavy i think for the tzd with the combined weight. Not got a towbar fitted on the bx at mo but have one in the garage that can go on.

The rav would be better but it has no towbar fitted so thats out. I towed the silver tgd on a trailer back from Hastings to Heathrow with the tzd but it was quite heavy @ 1800kg, tho the tzd towed it ok it's not something i would like to do again, and probably frowned upon by the boys in blue.
