What would you choose?

Righty then, I am off to collect a car on Wednesday and I can't decide what way to collect her, yes it's an Alfa Romeo before anyone askes and it's replacing the fantastic MX5.

I have to go to Dundee, Scotland to collect her though.

So what should I do?

Get yourself inside a box and ship yourself via Parcelmonkey.

I would drive, the trouble is it will end up costing more as you will need to bring the car you went up in back, as well as take someone with you.

Wahay, a sensible answer

Driving is easier but as you said, it'll end up costing more...plus no one is free to come up with me so unless I find someone that's a no go

If I had the time I would have come with you...

I am sure someone on here could help though if you wanted them to.

Or just offer someone some beer vouchers, plus the cost of fuel to take you in their own car. If they have an economical one it might even work out cheapest.

Cheers for the offer Si, already done what you suggested but everyone I know down this end is either working or busy doing something else

I'd have a passanger who would then drive the GTA back but I know of two people who would be insured so that is also a sticky bit.
