Try shiplys or anyvan, bear in mind transport costs have risen sharply, you'll be lookingg at £2 a mile if not more.
Do you not have an "old school men in sheds" garage nearby, I think I would entrust their work more than modern computer controlled technicians.

I've just done the f to r pipes and all the rear axle pipes on my bx, trouble is whilst it's all apart you Will find other bits that need doing along the way, rusted fittings on the rear axle esp the rear rams can be problematic if not approached the correct way, the whole job isn't particularly difficult or time consuming, just needs to be done right and not bodged.
Why don't you try Citroen Classics in Staines, they are nearer to you and I know they'll do a good job, the guys there really know their stuff.

Pleiades are excellent but of course quite far from you.

I’m going to send you the phone number of a guy called Ceri who a lot of people use for car transport on another car forum I am on (Autoshite). I’ll send this via PM on this site.

I’m not sure what area he covers but he can let you know if it is possible or not.
