    Hi there,


    I need a bit of advice..


    I've seen a Civic in Scotland, which the first problem is 5.5hours away, second it's not running and doesn't have any front hubs ECT so will need to be transported somehow.


    But I'm not old enough to tow anything so I couldn't hire a van and trailer.


    Does anyone know any other methods to get the car to me?

    you''ll have to hire a man with a flatbed to go fetch it ya, but it won't be cheap.

    most reovery companys won't take it if its not rolling, with the money it will cost to get this recovered you could buy a better Civic

    unless this is some super wip with a K20 and some super fantastic parts for mega cheap i would give it a miss.


    When i got rid of one of my cars which had no hubs and it was non rolling i had to get some pikeys to come and lift it onto the back of a flat bed.


    That said i am seriously considering a S14a in fife scotland, i live in south east london....
