Hi There,

I have kindly been gifted a towbar for my 96.
But......
I need help getting it from Scotland to Bristol.
Is there anyone that could help?
The pick up could be Edinburgh, or perhaps Perth/Stirling.
Many thanks.
Steve

I'm the chap with the tow bar.
I live in East Fife, close to St Andrews, but could meet up with someone heading south, anywhere in east Central Scotland.

My son will [should be] driving down from near Montrose to Dorset on Wednesday. I've recommended to him that he drives via Edinburgh, cuts across to the A74/M74 and then M6 and M5 to Bristol & down to Dorset from there. If you still need the towbar brought down, I could ask him if he's ok with meeting Andy somewhere between Dundee and Edinburgh to collect it.

Hi David,
Sorry I've only just seen this - I've had trouble getting on the forum.

Thanks for the kind offer, If we could make this work I would be very grateful, but obviously there's not much time to organise it now.
Andy - can you comment if you think this is possible from your side?

Thanks again.
Steve.

No problem, just tell him to take A90 from Dundee towards Perth.
As he approaches Perth go on to the M90 south towards Edinburgh.
I could meet him at Kinross Services, which is about 15 minutes down the M90 from Perth.
Please be aware that this towbar is quite long. What kind of car is he in?

When roughly are we talking about?
I've sent you a PM David with my phone numbers.

Andy

David, Andy,
If this works today then obviously I can meet David's son somewhere near Bristol to save him any diversion or crawling into the city.
Just let me know time and place.
I can't find how to email you both, so I'll throw caution to eeh wind and put my number here.
0797 403 7650

Thanks all,
Steve.

Hi Guys,
Thanks for progressing this.
I can't send a PM on this group as I am too new and not sure posting my phone number is allowed (I tried it but the post hasn't been published).
Could one of you send me a PM so I can reply with my phone number?
Cheers,
Steve.

Well it's now 13:00 hrs on Wednesday, so I guess your son is well on his way south by now.
I was up early this morning, thinking I might get a morning RV.
It's honestly too late in the day for me now, too much Crimble stuff going on....

Andy

Thanks for the offer.
Yes, still looking to get the Tow Bar to Bristol somehow.
I'll drop you a line nearer the time if it is still in Scotland by the summer.
Cheers,
