I'm looking at picking up an MGB GT from Vancouver island, but it doesnt run and it would take a bit of $$$ and time to get it going. So, does anyone in the area know of any inexpensive form of getting a car from the island to Vancouver?

I know that Western Logistics 866-920-1313 takes freight over to the Island a couple of times a week and comes back with empty trailers. If you can get a way to put it into a dry van they could probably help you out.

I regularly took ferrys to the San Juans Islands next door. It didn't cost much. Why not rent a tow dolly (about $50 in ATL) and pickup if necessary, and take it away on the ferry?

Be sure to let uhaul know you are towing something less than 1/3rd of the weight of the truck. They have no idea what you will be towing and won't rent it to you if they think it will be too heavy.
