Ok . Weighs in at under 9 kilos inc strong packaging and homemade box ! Hermes £60 delivery ! Shipley as advised on here are an agency that have passed on 6 , so far , quotes from £63 to £31 and all between . Big difference all say insured so do you just go on cheapest ? It's only £ 30 I am selling it for , buyer pays carriage .

I have used Shiply several times, and had no complaints at all.
They even delivered my old Willam in a Renault Master   :D
On the website you can see their feedback and comments about service, and make your own mind up.
Just need to allow them time to work it in with another trip in the area/return.

Have you tried Parcel2go?  You feed in the details and it spews out quotes from a whole load of couriers. I use them a lot but for smaller parcels admittedly.

thanks to all , including that last one Bob it appears like the shiply link to bring in many quotes . after all that interesting discussion  (and 4 hours or so making a box  :) ) now Dennis and I have agreed to meet up in Yorkshire . so now to dispose of this HUGE box  ;D I now just hope the second hand bonnets worth the effort !
