Cheapest way to ship a car from Sussex to N Ireland?

13
Found 9th Jun
My wife wants her sister to have her old car (Toyota Verso S). We live in East Sussex and sis lives in Armagh. None of us have time to drive it over & would rather not anyway. I have looked at driven delivery which is a bit steep (around £550) does anyone have a cheaper Idea? Thanks

Get the sister who is having it to come over and drive it back.



Like I said, none of us have time. It would take 2 days to travel here and back & she has little kids & a full time job.
Pay my expenses and time, and I'll do it 😁
sell it and give the sister the money to buy another one closer to home
Hold on to it till one of you does have the time. The only other option is to meet half way maybe at the ferry port, send her the link to this video and she should get the message.

Give Woodsides a ring, they always in England bringing cars over to N.Ireland. They more or less the major tansporter of cars into N.Ireland. Afraid to say the contact I had has since moved jobs. No idea of price though.

Try MVT also who are actually based in Armagh.

Drive it over then fly back or vice versa.
About 6h drive with an hour or so on the ferry. Even if you stop every hour your looking at half a day at worst.
