I want to ship my 1903 Franklin to the Brighton Run in England this November. Does anyone have experience with a reliable and reasonably-priced shipper with experience in taking cars to this event? I've heard of groups combining on a container, but have no specifics. Any relevant info would be helpful.

I want to ship my '04 CDO for this year's run. I've never done it. I'm going to use Bob Mckeown in Pennsylvania, about whom I've heard good things from others who have used him.

I am looking forward to seeing these two cars on the L to B this year

Don, you'll notice I wrote my response in February, 2020, before Covid closed down the known universe.  I decided not to go this year, either.  If Covid closes down a tour in Massachusetts, I simply don't go to Massachusetts. But if Covid closes down the London-Brighton and I have a car in a container on the deck of a ship going to London, I have a problem.  Besides the potential Covid problems, the UK has massive internal shipping disruptions due to not having Brexit sorted out.  So I regret you won't be seeing my car on the L to B this year.  It's a bucket list item for me, but at age 85 I'm getting closer to the bucket, and I realize I'd better do it soon. 2022, I hope.  Please?
