Car & Boat Hauler in UK looking for a USA link

Hi Guys,

I transport cars & boats etc all over the UK & Europe.
I transport open & enclosed. I am getting asked more often now if I can sort the whole import/export thing door to door between UK & USA.
One of my customers is a shipping company here in the UK. I've got a very very good relationship with them & use them to ship my own stuff for me when needed, but mostly I deliver vehicles for them that people here have bought from US ebay etc.

So I have this end & the shipping sorted, but I could do with some help on your side of the pond.
I was thinking of looking around on the internet, but I would rather hook up with some fellow members of the org.
As USA is sooo big I guess it would be usefull to have a few guys that can cover different areas otherwise the costs would be very high.
Obviously I need somebody that allready does this & has all relavent insurance in place.
The transport sometimes has to be enclosed, but not all the time.
A crucial part of this is trust! It has taken me years to get such a good name & gain the trust of people. Check out my website to see some of the cars I transport.

If anybody is interested let me know.

Thanks for the compliments, I don't work the ports, you need a TWIC card and it's too much of a hassel. I let the big companies deal with it......

The best thing to do would be to work with a warehouse in the US to do your receiving and pick up out of there.

Hi guys,
I've been all over the place so not been on this mission for a while. I'm hearing horror stories latley from people over here which makes me want to get back on track with things & get a few good guys I can rely on in the states. It's cars really but it would be good to have a few guys that transport boats that I could call on if & when. I'm revamping my website soon & was hoping to ad some pictures of some cool cars getting collected over there. I allways blank out the plates on all vehicles. I'm getting asked about door to door more now so I would like to sort this out. It might just be once in a while but you never know. I'm collecting more & more US imports now. It would be great if I could tie this all up with a few fellow members of the org. I remember speaking with Suban before & I'm sure you said it was ok to use the pic of your rig to promote the USA side of things. Can you please confirm this is ok?
Aswell as my website UK & European Specialist Vehicle Transport,American,Prestige,Custom,Bike,Trike,Tv & Film I also have an Auto-Haul facebook page which I'm promoting more now. Auto-Haul UK & European Specialist Transportation | Facebook I'm wanting to promote the USA link there too.
Thanks guys. Hope to hear from you...

I should also point out it's normally from the US to the UK. Very rarely the other way round..
