What help can we get with transporting my dad to his new home?

My Dad is in a care home in the SW, near to my sister, but she's relocating and we're moving him to a better facility in Scotland where I live. Does anyone have any information about sources of support for the journey? He can't travel by plane or train, so it will need to be road transport. We can do this ourselves but just wondered if their is anyway of getting some additional support . Dad has funds, so we're not looking for something for free necessarily.

Hello Pansy and welcome to Talking Point.

I am sure the St. John's Ambulance Service offer both ambulance and car transport. There are also private ambulances services too.
