Agh bugger it's a stripped body. No chasis. I am desperately looking for somewhere to store it whilst I finish arguing with the garage that has my car in its lock up. Any ideas of places I could store it?

I would if only my landlord would let me. Any leads on somewhere to store it would be amazing, I have to arrange pick up of it ASAP.

Hmm... Have you got a shed that you could out the body on? Or store it at a friend or relatives?

Unfortuneatley I'm renting at the moment, so no storage where I am, and the only relative with the space is now moving. So I'm kind if stuck. Basically looking for somewhere to store it for at least a couple of months, otherwise I have a problem which is never good.

Andrew, I have a small trailer - let me measure the bed tomorrow (provided I can get out there) and see if a body will sit safely on it. Do you have the ability to transport it here and lift it off?

I have to arrange for transport from the seller in Birmingham anyway, so was thinking of arranging a low loader to pick up the car, as I don't have a trailer, and I doubt my moggy would be up to towing. Any help would be fantastic. And massively appreciated.

checked today and the body could be stored on the trailer if you can get it here. It's not a big trailer, so wouldn't be able to transport it any further than in and out of the barn.
