Courier help needed

Hi all,

Does anyone know of a good courier ?

I need to transport an engine ( on a pallet ) from the Taunton area to Stockton on Tees.
Engine weighs approx 90kgs plus a few kgs for the pallet I suppose.

cheers
Andy

I used to use P2G but their service went majorly downhill at the end of last year, so stopped.
For normal parcels I use the Interparcel Economy/Standard service. They use UPS as a courier and even let you specify a collection time. Same price as P2G as well.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I,ll get some quotes from them all,

One question tho............as its on a pallet, do they expect a fork lift to offload at the delivery address ? its my home so no fork lift etc .


Guess who needs to change a broken engine weeks before my IVA test , this car is determined to test my patience

cheers

I thought shiply prices looked ok until I read the "plus shiply auction fee of £xxx"

That bumps it up to the same as everyone else


National pallets would do it on 48hr for about £50

I used ETS - as I remember they charged me £65 for my redtop - but that was a couple of years ago.

Couldn't fault the service, though.
