Bolton to Haywards Heath


Hi all,
I'm looking to have my car transported down to my new home in Haywards Heath from Bolton, 'Up North'.
Some of you may ask 'why don't you drive?' well that was my first idea but when you're driving out of necessity rather than pleasure, its not as much fun..
Do any of you have an idea on who could help me and how much it might cost please? Scratchchin

Necessity or not, I'd still just try and pick a nice day and drive. Our house move was Maidstone to just south of Le Mans. Drove the "old '78 down, then a month later all the way back for our final CCCUK Nats appearance! Then, back to France.....

Make it pleasure then by planning a long winded trip. Its a great way to start a new life. When I bought my '87, it took me 200miles and four hours to drive the 25miles home. Yes

When I mentioned this once at a car show, the excellent retort from an old guy in a rusty Dorset pickup was.. "..yes, I had a car like that once!" Laughing

Since no one has actually answered this yet, Paul Allen is well placed to transport your car (Lincolnshire Corvettes), and Keith Beschi has also arranged car transport for me in the past. What it costs you'll need to ask them I'm afraid.

Thanks Guys, you've got me day dreaming about this... I'm pretty sure it'll make the trip without too many hick ups- famous last words. But I may just contact the guys to check prices.
Thanks again

The guy I use is £1 a mile one way. If you want to book him I'll forward his number.

I'd drive it and make a big day (or so) out of it. A mini driving holiday as such.

And if it does break down then just call the AA / RAC and they'll drop it to your new home for free Very Happy

Mmmm I'd like to think so, but I don't have AA/RAC cover at the moment, I'm still thinking about driving down and catching the train back and maybe getting a basic level of cover just in case...decisions decisions.

I've only just noticed in your signature that you have a 1968 327 - I also have a 1968 327 as well Very Happy

I've not seen any others about, would be nice to see it. Smile

Re: Bolton to Haywards Heath


Just realised that Haywards Heath is in W.Sussex.

We used to drive regularly from South Ayrshire KA19 to Bognor in either the Corvette or the Octavia, down the M6, M42 M40, A34, M3, and A27 along the coast.

Always enjoyed the coastal trip, nice road system all the way along.. Took us on average about 8 hours, including a stop at Norton Canes on the toll road.

Best time ever was 6.5hrs to Goodwood none stop in the Corvette for the 'Gone in 60 Secs' breakfast meet about ten years ago and on one tank (filled up in Dumfries).
