I used Robin's Recovery to transport my Esprit S1 from Folkstone to Preston, Lancs. He is very experienced in transporting Lotii. Knows jacking points etc. He is very careful and knows what to look out for. His mob is 07789 660190. Nice friendly guy.

@cbclotus if you’ve told Arek it’s a V8 - he knows the V8 wheel base won’t fit on his transport. But isn’t yours an S4 wheelbase chassis ?? If so - it would fit I believe 

Only here once

If folks wanted to use a normal trailer,  pain in the backside but you could always remove the wheels and fit space savers purchased from the local breakers,  this would greatly reduce the track of any esprit and enable easy movement on and off the trailer,  without the possible cause of damaging the alloy wheels.   Downside is you have to purchase 4 space savers and unbolt the factory wheels and refit the savers.   

Upside you can use any trailer :)

I move my G Esprit and have moved a couple of S cars for others without issue on my standard (A410) Brian James trailer.  Is it a particular model that doesn't fit or are other people's trailers narrower? 

If you need help Mike then I'm always happy to offer...but I'm just a bloke with a trailer - not commercial, no special insurance which means your risk and a thirsty tow car - so typically you'll do better with a professional.

Mike, I use a guy called Easyrider 1974. Dave, he is down Cornwall way and moves cars regularly for me. I have his number  if required. 07729834013. For local moves I have my own trailer, it's a Brian James and the Esprit fits in fine.
