YAY.

 

I've got here after a zig-zag read. All usable links and input from this thread and the one @Dedrok scoured through are all in post #1 .

 

Looks like we have a mixture of General cartage, Furniture removalists, specialists in sensitive freight, smaller courier companies.

 

I've tried where possible to indicate the routes they operate on.

 

Also don't forget there are a handful of blokes that do road trips like Edy is doing now which is very helpful.

 

Anyone I've missed, just post here (with a link if possible) and I'll ad it in.

Yeah I’m doing the Melbourne/ Sydney return later this week.

 

I only got through the first 100 posts.

Will check for more tonight if I get the chance.

Just an update on a recent experience Bris-Sydney with Mark from "Need a Courier"

Mark had great communication, turned up on time and also called about 1 HR before pick up to let me know he was on his way, he had trolleys required and was very helpful.

The machine was transported on legs with headbox down, pads between machine and headbox, and ample pads to transport safely, by all reports the machine has turned up in great condition and the buyer was happy with the machine on delivery.

I am unsure on costs as this was organised by the purchaser but thought it would be benificial to sellers to hear this feedback.

I have no affiliation with Mark and have only met the guy this once for a short time but my sentiment after this experience would be Transport with Confidence.

 

Cheers Trav

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.

Thanks for the replies but after only viewing pics on my phone I had a closer look on my bigger computer.Machine is very nice but a few areas I was not totally happy with and decided to pass.Seller is a good bloke and said no worries.

Hey everyone

 

I need to get a machine brought down from Port Douglas or Cairns to Brisbane. Its currently in Port Douglas but got a mate who can pick it up and take it back to Cairns for me if easier/cheaper

 

Anyone have a contact for the far north transport wise?

 

Regards

 

Marcus
