    Argo or similar two man vehicle for short term rent/hire - good cause

    I have been looking for a project argo for a while in the hope of taking my Father up the hills he used to stalk and has not been up in over 12 years due to ill health/mobility.
    He misses his stalking a great deal but most of all he misses the ability to get up the hills.
    I want to help him get there again before it is too late.

    Given how long it has taken me to find a potential vehicle and how long it may take me to get it serviceable I am now considering a rental/hire option.

    I am looking for something that will ideally take 2 minimum, ideally 4 people
    4 wheel or 8 wheel
    I can provide a trailer if required
    Willing to travel anywhere in UK but something located somewhere within 200 miles of Oban would be ideal

    Would only need it for a few days, a week at the most, time of year is not important so can do it after the hinds finish if in use before.

    I realise its a big ask given the potential value of the vehicles and am happy to cover any additional insurance on top of a rental/hire charge
    The terrain I would be using it on is relatively shallow in angle, fairly soft and easily traversed by quad or argo.
    Risk would be minimal considering my cargo

    Open to any suggestions or options
    thanks

    Hi Ed, do you want to borrow the green one? You can check out the sand one then at the same time. Just to keep it all above board I'll say on here that value of it is about 1800 + and any loss or damage must be covered.
    It's a good trip down here to the Midlands though.

    There's a place in Auchterarder which fixes Argos, and from memory they will also hire them. Can't remember the name, but I'm sure that chap Google will know....might be Rattray?

    Hi
    I know you said that you are looking to hire but this a bit of a long shot, we have an Argo (8 wheels) with trailer for sale which is now surplus to our North Yorkshire shoot.
