Welcome to the forum.  Its not something I have come across previously. 
Nice choice of van and the Mk7 Tranny is a favourite base vehicle with me.

A bit risky Hog  think_smiley_46 (for you and the OP) unless of course you are a vehicle transporter. Personally I'd get a a train and collect it myself rather than let somebody else loose with my new pride and joy. up!

If your getting your van from Southern motorhome company in Bracknell.   shrugg   I would recommend that you give the van a really good inspection and test everything.
Hope it goes well.

True but it could still be a few miles away couldn’t it?

Very good advice if you haven’t already done so.

Maybe my train idea is not such a good one considering all this Covid stuff but couldn’t a friend drive you? Anyway I see there is a comparison site for vehicle recovery firms:

I expect they are quite pricey. It may even be cheaper to hire a car (if necessary) and get someone to drive you.

Whatever  you decide enjoy your new van. up!

PS If you use a delivery firm make sure you do independent checks to make sure they are what they say they are.

Like PaulMold wondered, are you living in mid-Wales, and the vendor is also in mid-Wales? Unless you're very lucky, there won't be any railway connections. Can you give an indication of the two locations, so that we might advise better?

I share the extreme reservations about letting a stranger deliver your precious van. I'd ask a friend to run you to the vendor's. It would be better to have two people there, anyway.

This would be a lot simpler with two bits of information......

Where is the van now?
Where is it going?
