    Default Transporting a trailer from JHB tot CPT

    I am busy buying a Conqueror Comfort in Gauteng and decided to transport the trailer down to Cape Town by truck.

    Does anyone have any advice or can recommend a transporter?

    I've been investigating, as I might be bringing a Suzuki up from CT to JHB, and these guys will do it for you. You will need a vehicle to load the trailer onto the transporter, and you'll need a vehicle to unload it, but these guys will definitely do it for you.

    Transporting by train is about R2500.

    From who? The quotes I got were more or less the same as a truck, and a truck they can hold at the yard for you, or even deliver to your house if need be, whereas the train you have to be there when it arrives to collect.

    Heinz from Metalian should be sending a fair number of new "Genies" up to JHB fairly soon (I hope).

    How many of those can you fit on your trailer?

    Usable space is 5m. So if the towbar is under the front trailer, probably 3?
