Can anyone recommend a courier other than Martin Palfreyman? And what the price difference might be?

Martin's great and as a result he's quite busy. Wondering what options there are to get a machine here quicker (other than driving over there myself!)

@Mike-R-

He’s moved a few for me and always great service, collects and delivers on the same day, but you will be paying a premium as there will likely just be your machine in his van.

Chris.

Did it myself recently, Kent to Norfolk Overall cost was about the same, van was £65, fuel £40. Assistant was free as he owed me one (son - owes me about another 100 😅).
Took a bit of planning and a whole day but well satisfied with the result.

The issue isn't the vehicle - it's the time budget!

Ended up using Ian from Birmingham Transport on the seller's recommendation - very happy with the service and only had to wait a few days :thumbs: Would definitely use them again. Charged £100.
