    Default Help Please

    I recently bought an 18 hp Briggs from E-bay.
    It is in North Ayrshire and it appears that the seller finds it difficult to despatch.
    It weighs 38 kg and I have suggested that he takes of sufficient bits and makes 2 parcels as parcel Force will take up to 30kg.
    This also seems to be difficult for him.
    I obviously will have to take the initiative on this one as i am not getting much cooperation from the seller.
    Any one got any (polite) suggestions on a suitable courier service.
    A club member did volunteer the services of their company but I cannot remember who you were.
    I am not looking for a freebie. Just a way forward.

    Cheers,

    Kip

    Hi Kip,

    Palletline (http://www.palletline.co.uk/) may be able to do it. I used them a few years ago and they were great. If I remember correctly, if you can get it on a pallet and it weighs less than a tonne, they'll ship it. My milling machine cost about 70 pounds to ship, though it wasn't coming from Scotland.

    Give them a try.


    Cheers,

    Andy.

    Most of our customer engines that arrive from individuals come in via Interlink.

    You can book the shipment and just tell him that the courier will be arriving on a certain day and it has to be ready.....

    Hi Kip,

    That was me that offered. I can get it collected on a pallet for 40 using our DHL carrier. Email or ring me and I can get it sorted.

    ETA: If you are coming to the Treasure Hunt then I can bring it along for you.
