Not to HIJACK the thread:

Looking for another person w/ longer vehicle (or two jeep guys to put their behind the carryall in a 40'er) to SHARE A COUNTAINER from Houston to Southampton, UK in April or May for the 75th DD. I'll be putting in a WC26. Will split the cost, load ourselves in Houston. Have assistance at UK for unloading and temp storage for a small fee and expenses. I have a shipping company account already.
PM for information...and discussions....will do this via cellphone....all documentation will be handed by the exporter in Houston with the company I do business with.

Shipping a WC26 carryall from HOUSTON to LONDON. I have someone in London that will accept and get them out of the container and hold in a garage for arrival. I'm going to sell the WC26 in Europe after September so will not be transporting it back but you can arrange that with the outbound shipping company if you know when you are through with D-Day deal.
