  • Transport Alternatives - Post Prowler?

    John has just informed me that he has had to shut down his transport services immediately so I guess I'd better look for a plan B to get a paid for pin from interstate.

    Edit;I think a few have been left in the lurch by Prowler's instant disappearance and I for one wish John best wishes and thanks for his services to date.

    Some suggestions from this thread condensed and added here;

    Hytec transport - Peter - sales@hytechtransport.net.au Melb - Syd - Melb. and now maybe Qld.

    Milan - 0430896699 - Does Mel - Syd - Bne weekly for another contract and will take games on standby when he has spare space.

    Air Road Direct -

              Yep, back to the old days. I can see there being a rush on bubblewarp and tie downs now.

                    Hi All

                    For those that may be feeling like there is no other option. Please see this for what it is, hopefully helpful information nothing more nothing less.

                    Hy Tech transport Peter can help with Melb-Syd-Melb. Weekly. Peter has been transporting Pinball machine for AMD for years. Many here inc myself used him befor Prowler started.
                    sales@hytechtransport.net.au

                    Milan is running Syd-BNE-Syd I don’t have his details but I’m sure someone can post it if they have them.

                    Oh and just hot off the phone from Peter now. He has picked up another QLD contract and will be running not only to BNE but further into Nth Qld starting this Feb/Mar not sure of frequency at this time but again email him for more info. [MENTION=656]Koops[/MENTION] Peter tried to contact you but email bounced back?
                    PINBALL gotta love it

                        Another alternative is Air Road if you can get pin on pallet to depot and pick up at depot other end at depot the price is excellent
                        Had a champ pub depot to depot adelaide to brisbane under $240 but that was 18 mths ago if you register 10% off and ive found them far more professional than ego

                          Yes, Air Road collected one of my machines I sold and were very good. Initially I thought it was a big job and inconvenience to pallet a machine but after spending 30mins doing so, it was pretty easy. I just placed the machine without legs and head box folded down, on cardboard on the pallet (the correct way up and not on it's back vertical), placed padding/bubblewrap and cardboard around it, strapped securely, then wrapped with commercial cling film wrapping. All too easy.

                            If you have an ABN then try a company called Bigpost. Cocktail from Adelaide to Groote Island $240. That included the ferry to Groote Island. Door to door.

                              Groote Island off NT? Thats bloody good value I reckon.
