    i've used loads of couriers, and as long as the machine is within the size of the pallet and secured to it, you should be fine.

    i bought my centec 2 on ebay and had it shipped over from the mainland to northern ireland, the biggest worry was getting the seller to put it on a pallet.

    btw if you can, make sure it has the vertical head with it, they are wild expensive on their own

    Might have to go down the delivery route. I am looking at another option at the moment. There is one for sale near alton towers where I will be next weekend. The problem will be transport. I could take my trailer with me but I have no idea where I could safely park it until its time to come home. Waiting on some more photos of the machine Im looking at.

    secure parking like some multistorey car parks, or safestore may be able to handle it. Or collect it on the day you return.

    Bit of an update. I won a 2A the other night on ebay, the blue one it was. It should be delivered to my mates workshop on Wednesday. I will strip it down there and bring it back to mine for a rebuild and new paint job. I've also just won the Mk3 vertical head on ebay as well tonight. I should hopefully pick it up next weekend as we are down that way anyway.

    Excellent, I was looking at those and wondering if you were bidding...

    Does anyone have any experience with the X3? Should I really hold out and get a centec?
    Hi,I'm new to this forum ,been lurking for a while . I've recently refurbished a Centec2 which is in amazing condition considering it was made in the late 40's .
