    Car shipping to dublin, any ideas please?

    Just wondered if anyone has any experience of this.

    I'm in the process of buying a used car for an uncle who lives in Dublin, apparently cars are more cheaper here in Blighty.

    My question is, in order to ship the car, can I just use the New Keepers V5C Supplement slip supplied by the seller (private sale) to ship the car over OR do I have to wait for the new keepers log book V5C to come back from DVLA, which can take about 4 weeks before attempting to ship.

    What documents are generally required before shipping can be done?

    How do i go about shipping the car? Any approx. quote for this?

    This will be a permanent export.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    No way should you ship a car from the UK to Ireland, just drive it there, it would only take a day or two. I'll do it for a fee!

    You can get a ferry, from NW England, NW & SW Wales and SW Scotland.

    And flights with air lingus at the moment are cheap as chips so getting home will be a doddle too.
