Who can transport my car by trailer from UK to Poland?

Hi - anybody help!?

I'm an English guy living in Kharkov, Ukraine - I want to take my car from the UK to Ukraine, ideally by getting it transported via trailer/whatever as close to the Ukraine border as possible, after that I can drive it the rest of the way.

So I'm looking for someone who can take it over to Poland, with me as a passenger, on a trailer - maybe to Warsaw - ideally to Lubin or Rzeszow (doesn't matter which) - the car is perfectly driveable, i just don't want to drive it the first 1,000+ miles across Europe if i can avoid it. Its a Jaguar XK8 sports car... Then i will take over and drive it across the border and through Ukraine.

I know it sounds crazy - but a) I'm a crazy Englishman, and b) its my pride and joy - and at the moment it is sitting in Surrey in the UK doing nothing.

If possible I want to move it on the 21st or 22nd August, but I can be a bit flexible if necessary... Anybody can help? or knows someone who can?

Thanks

Hi Wulkan,

London to Kharkov is over 1,800 miles - that's a hell of a long trip, especially driving all the way on my own - I guess part of me worries about how the car will do over that distance in a short time - ideally i want to make the trip in 3 days; that's 10 hours + each day.

If i can't find a transporter, then I will drive it myself (and maybe try to find someone who will drive with me). Its hard to work out where to go to find someone who wants to share the ride. I have many friends now in Ukraine who are interested in meeting in Ukraine and coming along with me - but i don't know anyone in UK who wants to go to Poland...

Get a tap installed in the fuel line and then AA five-star Europe coverage.

Two other options to Consider you could take the ferry from Harwich to Ebsjerg in Denmark then its an easy drive to Berlin or you could look into

dbautozug.de/autozug-en/Transport_and_travelling/

I once took my car on the train from Berlin TO Narbonne there must be car trains from France to Berlin.

Is it a ringer ?

Avalon - that's either a reference to the war (no, but it is fast enough to escape), or to the state of Ukrainian roads and drivers (i'll just have to stay away from country roads and potholes) :)

and no, its not a ringer...

Maybe the train is an idea.

There are plenty of Polish trucks that deliver food to the UK that go back empty and are looking for stuff to take back, and I've seen cars in the back of the truck when I've picked up my stuff that I sent over to Poland. They advertise in Polish magazines in the UK (e.g. Cooltura).

I'm afraid "cooltura" is not in English

Thanks - that's what i thought - I just don't know how to find these kinds of guys who can do it! It doesn't matter if its not in English no? Google Translate... (I apologize for knowing only about 3 words of Polish, but that is 1 more word than I know in Ukrainian...)

just a question - can you register a Left-hand-driven car in the UK?

Hi

Hi Lufi, his post was three years ago, so you're probably out of luck.
