Assistance in moving a trailer base

I’m looking to see if it is possible to get this Caravan Chassis brought up from Umberleigh North Devon postcode area EX37 to EH54 area or even part way

Background

Livingston Round Table – have a “santa sleigh” that was built on an old caravan base. -

We are doing some general tidying ahead of the festive period – and on looking at the chassis – It’s nearly on its last legs – and springs / shocks – etc – these are knackered –

I have tried to find replacements – but so far cannot find any- The brakes are beyond economic repair.


One option is to lift the sleigh onto a new chassis – hence post – I was looking on ebay and saw this one cheap – and also Galvanised – which should last a few more years. >> ebay link

There are others on the web but as a charity and trying to minimise any costs this looks a good option. All funds raised from the collections at Christmas is put back into the local community – Last year we raised over Ł4300 – and want to exceed that this year –

I have not bought the trailer yet as I wanted to find out if it is possible to get this moved first -
If you think you can help –either by assisting in the transport north or can suggest ways to get ths moved - please let me know asap –

Been looking locally and none suitable that I can find - there are lots of "rusting ones available" - The bodywork ( Ply etc ) is spot on it's just the trailer chassis that is knackered - If I could find a good galvanised chassis - (cheap ) that was closer and time wasn't such an issue I would - We need the sleigh ready to run on 1st December
