Perhaps an idea for a sticky thread.

If anyone is heading across the water or down south, and another member requires something delivered or collected.

One thread where all requests can be entered, quoted for and arranged.

It would certainly help me when it comes to "collection only" purchases and hopefully I could help a few out when I am on my travels too.

I guess the best bet is to have the following as a template for requests

I need a bumper collected in Norfolk (y).

I'm happy to collect any relatively small things (not an engine or chassis!) around the Edinburgh to Glasgow area and wrap them to send home if that would ever be of any use to anyone too.

Good idea. I'll sticky the thread and see if it's used.

I will be going from Oxford to Holyhead then up from Dublin next Friday in the Saab Bus, so could have some room. Could stop of within reasonable distance from my route as long as I don't miss my boat.

On the randon off chance someone is taking a vehicle accross the water, I need one collecting and bring back from Scotland

On a more practical note, I'm over to England roughly once a month in a medium sized van...will update the thread when I'm over next

can you not get someone to drive it to the ferry terminal then get them to put it on as freight?

Just wondering if anyone will be passing by the Huddersfield area in the next few weeks? I might have a Ford Model Y bodyshell to be collected. It will fit inside a large van as it is less than 4 foot wide and will not have any of the front end panels attached although these do come with it but could be placed inside it for transport.

I'm still stuck trying to get this Model Y bodyshell collected. Anyone know of someone who does mainland trips in a large van/lorry regularly? Jas Lad - any Transit vans coming this way?
