    Iím buying a Colchester Master lathe and need assistance transporting it and moving it into my garage. Does anyone have any recommendations for companies/people?
    The lathe is around 700kg.
    I live in Wolverhampton and the latheís around 100 miles away.

    Cheers

    Speak to Steve, very reasonable.

    landylift@aol.co.uk

    He does this and has moved my Emco and a few other machines for me.

    What Chaz said, I have used Steve in the past and couldn't be happier with his service. He even gave me help to place my lathe right where it was going to stay.

    Another recommendation for Landy Lift here.

    Delivered my Triac from the depths of Derbyshire to Scotland. Turned out he visits a factory just a few miles away from me every few months, so only needed directions for the last couple miles.

    Will the lathe fit on a pallet? I had my Harrison M300 moved on a pallet, cost around £70.

    Hmmm maybe, Iíll have to look into it. How heavy was your lathe? Iím worried about it being a little top heavy, maybe itíll be best to screw it down to the pallet.

    Harrison is circa 675 kg. A lot of it is down to how its strapped down. I had my lathe and a new HSD spindle shipped on a single pallet with no problems.
