Afternoon
Are there any machine couriers on here or can recomend one i bought a lathe 250kg, L 1000mm W 700mm H 800mm needs to get it from brum to leicestershire and dumped in my front yard i can hopefully manage it from there.
i should have worried about it before buying but there you go.
What should i be looking to pay?

throw it on a pallet and use a courier.


Pallet Couriers UK Nationwide & European Pallet Distribution (http://www.nationalpallets.co.uk/)

National Pallets as per i2i's suggestion, or if whoever you bought it of is incapable of getting it on a pallet, stick it up on shiply and see what offers you get.
Given the relatively short distance, you might find somebody on shiply that's just as cheap, and it only takes 5 minutes to stick up a request.

Hi Deisel

If you still need to get your lathe shifted speak with these guys haulage services (http://roadhaulageservices.com/cheapest-pallet-delivery/). They have real human beings on the other end of the phone and will try to put you in touch with a local haulier or 'owner driver'.

Welcome to the forum age. Have you noticed that the date was 2013 so I would think the job has now been done.

I've heard very good things of LandyLift, they offer a true rigger service rather than simply courier so you will know your machine has spent the entire journey the right way up and securely strapped down ;-)

But it never hurts to add relevant helpful information to a thread, people often search a forum later for information you know ;-)
