    Default Transport dead car from Brisbane to Adelaide?

    Hi All,
    I am trying to shift a complete car, but minus engine and gearbox from Brisbane to Adelaide. Most trucking companies won't touch a non-runner. Does anyone know of a group who will winch a dead classic on with care? Or any other options, other than going for a long drive?

    Regards, Erik

    PS. It isn't french this time...

    How soon do you need it moved? I'm looking at bringing a car back from Adelaide to Brisbane, and would be quite happy to take one down in the process.

    However it won't be until near the end of the year.

    Hi Scott,
    That could be of serious interest. I don't know whether he would let it sit under his house for that long, but I have permission for a month or so, so I will see if I could string it out a bit after that. Are you talking about Nov or Dec?

    It is a Mercedes, which has a bit wider wheel base than the pugs. Is your trailer a normal wide width?

    Thanks, Erik
