Whilst on the topic of shipping cars. Anyone shipped theirs to the South of France? Any idea of cost?

Shipped mine (return) to Eastern Europe, Italy, Spain & Portugal - each of those destinations over the last 6 years has cost almost exactly the same at £1500.

Mine were all done as part of a much bigger load (around 40 cars each time) by On Time or Cars in Camera.

As a one-off, try giving Alex at Lizard Logistics a bell 07880 552886

Ok well that makes it easy. Thought it might be more cost effective next summer to ship it down with tolls and fuel. I suppose when you add chain and a hotel for the night it's not far off

You can put your car on a train in Paris and get on another train and collect it at the other end in the south.

I did this once but on the return the car ended up in Bordeaux not Paris.
