Is it possible to hire a car and trailer to tow a vehicle?

I have imported a classic vehicle to the UK and it has arrived at Felixstowe. I expected to be able to easily rent a car trailer along with tow vehicle and bring it to my home in Leicester. However, after almost a full day online and on the phone, It seems impossible.

Trailers are readily available, but nobody wants to rent me a vehicle that they will allow me to tow with car, which weights 1750kg. Is the only solution to shell out hundreds of pounds to a specialist company to transport the vehicle?

Yes. That is what you have to do. Pay to have it trailered or transported to Leicester. But if it is a runner it might be better to MoT it and register it and insure it and tax it, then drive it from Felixstowe to Leicester.
