Welcome

We are specialists in the movement of single vehicles on behalf of car dealers, Sale rooms, collectors, insurance companies, recovery organisations, vehicle breakers and private clients.

We also provide transport for classic car organisations and motor sport clubs, and will operate anywhere in the country. Bearing in mind that we are based in Yorkshire, we naturally have a preference for work coming into or going out of the Yorkshire region, but will consider all client requirements.

We have more recently carried out International work on behalf of specialist clients – for example, a Classic Lotus Elan to Immingham Port bound for Gothenburg, Sweden, a UK Government Bird Radar Unit towed to The Hague in the Netherlands, and we have been over to Galway in the Irish Republic to collect a Classic Rally Car and return it to Yorkshire.

About us

Our drivers are highly qualified and very experienced professionals, and we are fully insured to carry vehicles up to the value of £350k. For your peace of mind, our vehicles are also fitted with Tachograph Units where there is a legal requirement. All this adds up to a very professional, and fully covered outfit ready to provide the perfect solution to your vehicle transport needs.

Additional Specialist Tow Work.

In addition to our main work of vehicle transportation, and because we are very skilled at the work we do, we are happy to consider other forms of tow work.

We have built up a strong relationship with one of Yorkshire’s premier Caravan Dealerships, moving new and used units for them and their clients. This has also involved the transport of units around the UK and ‘siting’ them.

We have also carried out the transportation of Boats, Light Plant, and Agricultural Machinery.

Testimonials

"I have been involved in Motorsport for a long time now, and when the opportunity came to buy a well known MKII Escort Rally Car from a dealer in Galway, Southern Ireland, I had to find a fast, efficient, and cost effective way to transport the car back. A friend of mine suggested Steve at Yorkshire Navigator. A few phone calls and e-mails later, we were able to arrange for Steve to go over and collect the car. The service was fast, friendly, extremely efficient, and very cost competitive – which was important to me. The task was carried out in a professional and 'unfussy' way, to my great satisfaction, and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Yorkshire Navigator to any organisation or individual."

- IAN BELL – Member, MALTON MOTOR CLUB.

"We have been using Steve and Yorkshire Navigator for some time now, and they have become one of our first ports of call when we need a vehicle delivering or transferring. They are a small but very professional organisation, and we can rely on that professionalism being applied to our clients. Both Audi and JCT600 have very demanding service levels, and we are confident that Yorkshire Navigator apply the same standards to our clients on our behalf."

- STEVE CLOSE – Business Development Manager, YORK AUDI.

"My company is into the specialist restoration of classic cars, in particular Datsun 'Z' series cars. I first started to use Steve a year or so ago, and I have built a good relationship with his company. We have a requirement to move anything from bodyshells and parts, to fully restored works Rally Cars and Concours Cars for display and sale/auction to and from anywhere in the UK. A recent example was a car collected from Chatham in Kent on behalf of a client – the car was rebuilt into a full Works Rally replica which went on to compete in this year's Monte Carlo Rally. Steve was even there to see the car in its finished stage, on the day it departed for the event."

- DUNCAN PEARCEY – Proprietor, THE 'Z' FARM.

" It goes without saying that the nature of our business involves towing to a large degree. We need to move caravan units from manufacturers and other dealers, as well as having vans delivered to our clients (some of which need to be 'sited' at parks around the UK). When we started to use Yorkshire Navigator as one of our specialist 'Towing Agents', we quickly realised that we had a very skilled and reliable team to work with. Costs are competitive, and we will continue to utilise their superb services."

- Damian Burns and Rod Trueman, Proprietors, LEEDS CARAVAN CENTRE.

" Having worked with Steve for over 16 years whilst he managed Supplies and Fleet issues for a Government Department, I can say that he is a superb professional, and highly knowledgeable in his field. Together with his Fleet and Supply Chain knowledge, he also has a number of years as a serving Police Officer, which has given him unique experience to be able to run an organisation like Yorkshire Navigator. He is very much a 'customer facing' individual, with a huge amount of experience to support, and any company would do well to have Yorkshire Navigator as an operational partner."

- LISA SPENCER – Procurement Manager, FERA, UK Government.

"We have just engaged Steve at Yorkshire Navigator Ltd to carry out the transportation of our historic 1926 Delage Transformables Metalliques to new owners in Chantilly, Paris. This car is one of only a pair still running and as such is a very important vehicle. The Delage has gone back to the family of the original designer – Louis Janoir, and the arrival back in France was quite a celebratory affair. My wife and I accompanied Steve and the Delage on the journey, and we were so very impressed by the outstanding service we received. Steve is an excellent driver, so much so that my wife was able to sleep on the long drive – trust indeed! The Delage will make its next appearance in Chantilly in the hands of the Janoir family, and I feel the circle has now been completed. A historic journey, made possible with the supreme professionalism of Yorkshire Navigator."

J P Merrington – Author, World Authority - Delage Automobiles.

"Every year I attend the Cholmondley Pageant of Power in Cheshire with a number of my cars, and this year I took a pair of Bentleys and a Fraser Nash to take part in the event. I drove a Bentley to the event, my colleague took the Fraser, and we gave Steve a call to see if he could trailer the second Bentley. The task of transporting the car over to the weekend event, and returning it a few days later was carried out very smoothly, and I am very satisfied with the service we received. I will use Yorkshire Navigator again. It's sometimes hard to find a local business that I can trust with valuable cars, and we will keep in touch with Steve."

J Harrison – Businessman, Entrepreneur. York.

"We operate a Classic Citroen Van which is used as a specialist mobile catering business at events and unique social occasions. Although the vehicle is roadworthy, we have found that it is far more cost effective, and less of a risk for us to have it transported professionally between our base in East Yorkshire, and the event sites we attend. These sites have been anywhere from prestige Shows like the Great Yorkshire Show, through to a 'residence' at the Trinity Centre in Leeds, and even to private family functions. We contacted Steve at Yorkshire Navigator some time ago, and we are so glad that we did. His expertise and professionalism has really impressed us and Yorkshire Navigator has now become an important part of our business operation. It is so nice that we can operate local businesses in partnership like this, and we are very happy to recommend YNL to anyone."

Nick and Rachael – Directors, Kerbedge Ltd.

"I've just bought a Rolls Royce Silver Shadow 1 from a chap in Redruth, Cornwall, and I was just about losing all hope that I could get anyone to collect it and return it to York. I looked at the Classic and Sports Car Magazine, saw the Yorkshire Navigator ad, and called Steve. Here was a very helpful chap, who immediately said 'yes, we can do that!' As it happens he was heading down to Dorset with a Classic 911, and it would be no problem to overnight, then swing down into Cornwall for the Rolls. I was so happy with the professional, no nonsense high class service I received – and the price was very reasonable too! Good to see a 'can do' approach these days, sometimes these companies get too cumbersome, and can't provide tailored, one-off responses like that. Well done Steve!"

Stewart Arnott – Proud new Rolls Royce owner.

"We recently engaged Yorkshire Navigator Ltd to carry out the collection and delivery of a very important car within the UK, and we have been highly impressed by the service we have received. When we needed to transport our 'SpeedsterGT' to a specialist wheel company prior to a trip to the Goodwood Festival this year, we called Steve to arrange the trip. We received first class service, and a very professional attitude, which is important to me. The job was done, and we have advised Steve that we will not hesitate to use his company again."

Kevin O'Sullivan – Business Development Manager, David Brown Automotive.
