This might work...
Or buy a Greek registered car in Crete. Car.gr or Supercars in Chania https://supercars-chania.car.gr/cars/
which I highly recommend. They speak perfect English and are genuinely nice people. You could phone him and ask him if he would buy your Merc.
I did think about buying and old banger for about £500, drive to Crete, scrap it if I could get cash for it, and then buy a Greek second hand car. In the end I sold my car in the UK, transported goods with Nomad and bought a new car here after renting one for a month at a low cost.
You have a dog so you have to plan around driving here and it seems like you have three options -
1 - Drive your Merc to Crete and register it legally at a high cost and with a load of grief, probably then stuck with a car too big for Crete.
2 - Drive your Merc to Crete and sell it, if possible, and then buy a Greek registered car.
3 - Sell your Merc in the UK and buy a cheaper car to drive to Crete, once here, buy a Greek registered car and then see if you can get any scrap cash for the UK car.
Any other options anyone?
