    car transportation companies that deal with shipping

    Hi Can anyone recommend any companies that would collect a vehicle from my house in Scotland and transport it (via low-loader/transporter) to Hull and put it on a ferry? I'm selling a car and the purchaser (who is genuine, not a scam, club member etc) lives abroad. I need an easy way of...

    Landlord management companies

    Toe in the water time. We have a house which we rent to one of our sons but he wants to move on. If we sell we'll have lots of money sitting in the bank earning 0.00000001%, so the alternative is to rent it out again. Renting it to our son was easy, but I don't really want to drive three...

    Insurance companies.......

    Robbing me again. For the third year running I need to change insurer. Quote for CL55 - £1300. A 5 minute search yields < £700. Guess this is standard across the industry.

    Lease companies and ConnectMe

    Apologies if this is covered elsewhere but I have not seen anything other than a couple of comments in the huge 350e posts... I have a 350e coming next month from Alphabet, sure I had read they were allowing Connect Me but I have just been told that I won't get it as they are not turning it...

    Insurance Companies Charges.

    Hi phoned my ins. company yesterday to inform them that I had changed my wheels. The extra cost was £5.00 and the admin fee was £35.00, I won't say who the insurance company was but I was a bit pi**ed off that they charge that amount for something as trivial as that. It is not as though it...

    Insurance companies make no sense

    Last year when I bought my C63 I was suprised to find it was cheaper to insure than my e350 convertable it replaced. Aviva were the cheapest by a mile and quoted me around £450. This year this has risen to £1050! A little look around and I can get cover for £335 from Churchill. And this...

    Insurance Companies are a Strange Breed

    I bought my ML270 three days ago, I informed my insurance company LV, of this and they asked for a further £300 pound, this would take my premium on to £700, and that's not even for a full year. The vehicle I was swopping my NCB from was a Mitsubishi L200, not exactly a high performance car :D...

    Leasing Companies

    I have seen many offers for SLK at a very low price, how can Mercedes do this? My wife would like (as they all do) an SLK and the lowest price I have seen is £227 on contract hire and leasing. Are these prices real? Thanks Gregg

    Umbrella Companies - 90%???

    Question for the contractors out there... I've always been used to 70%/75% take home pay with a LTD; but I've seen some companies which purport to offer 90% take home pay after taxes... There's quite a few of them, I wont bother posting links... but I was curious if this seems legitimate? M.

    The Madness Of Insurance Companies (Home Insurance)

    Renewal quote arrives - £473 (existing customer). I ring them for their best deal - £438 - "the best we can do Sir". Compare the Meerkat, for the same company/same policy criteria - £272. Go figure :crazy:.

    Big Brother insurance companies

    I read an article a week or so ago (Cant remember where) re Insurance . When you insure your car sometimes the insurance company asks wether you are a member of motor clubs enabling you to get a degree of discount, in telling the company you are a member of a certain club you give them cause to...
