Default Recommended car carrier?

Is anyone here able to recommend a competent car carrier with a single, covered truck to move a car interstate? I do not want a large company that moves many vehicles - just a sole operator who takes care in his work - or in her work as the case may be.
Regards,
Brian

Dear Brian,

I truly forgot...

The fellow who brought my Rolls was called Charlie....
He had an F350 LWB with a canopy.
He did a splendid job on the Spur from Melbourne to Sydney and MOTS was very happy
Unfortunately I will be on a plane tomorrow at 7:00am to Melbourne (back late in the evening).

I can get you his details Tuesday (especially if you ring and remind me then)

Regards

Michel

Now that is a nicely decked out truck - I wonder if the guy is stilling running a straight six or V8, petrol fuelled ? ...or has it been fitted with some sort of diesel engine ? Regards Styria (Maybe we should ask Charlie).

Indeed, as per the picture.
It is very kind of you to refer to the Queen of Sheba as a Royal Coach

Don't use Toll, they have the Defence contract and yep I'll leave it at that one unhappy customer.
