    I used Shiply to bring me a non-runner.

    Woking to Walthamstow £95, which I thought was good.

    I could do, but it will likely work out to a similar cost, exept I lose 2-3 days doing it as well. I have an indiactive price of approx £300 delivered.

    A friend of mine has one, I could probably borrow, but with ferry/fuel etc, it will probably cost me £200 and 2 days at least.

    Practices like this cost all of us in higher premiums.

    I think £300 is quite decent Alex, I doubt you’ll get (much) better....

    I agree, that price was from the seller though, rather than the shipping company, I will give his guy a call as well. Trying to use a third party shipper, as the money needs to be paid as its loaded up rather than on delivery

    I pinged him a message late last night. I'll give him a shout if I don't hear back by the end of the day.

    Loads of backload options, Courier Exchange are always worth an ask.

    Loads of options, some operate like Dutch auctons just to cover fuel costs.

    Yes, especially as DAS issues meant the steering was locked (which I told them about beforehand).
