Morning all!
Just investigating the logistics of shifting a boxed tent from Daventry to Portsmouth.
It's 810 x 540 x 520mm and weighs 36kg.
I've had a best quote of £75 from a courier so far.
Any possibilities within the next week or so, if only to initially collect it from the vendor?
Cheers.
Rik

36 kg? Sounds like a tool shed more than a tent. :shock:

Sorry, unable to help with this one Rik. Sounds like the cost of fuel to drive there and pick it up in person (at 99.9p/litre) could be the cheaper option :yup:

Got it done for £50 (incl full insurance) in the end through an online transport 'broker' who go by the name of 'Parcel Monkey'... :rotfl: ...the actual carrier on this occasion was 'DX Delivery'.
It was delivered safe & sound the next day, as promised :yup:
