    Hi all,,, Darrell ( Nemo ) is about to buy an aluminium motorbike rack on eBay.

    Trouble is it is in Exeter.. Not exactly local !!

    Is there anyone in the area who could collect it for us ?

    We should be able to work it across the country ( at least get it a lot closer ! ) with Funsters help :thumb:

    Alternately anyone have any idea how much a carrier would charge to collect and deliver ?
    It is about 6 ft long but quite light as it is ally

    I used Yodel to courier a Motorhome rear ladder about 5ft long aluminium, from Bournemouth to Sheffield, it cost about £7.50 ish as I remember. That was only a few months ago.:thumb:

    If you get dimensions, weight and post code from and to, you can get an instant online quote.

    Greetings,

    Have a look at parcelmonkey.co.uk

    That will give you the best price for a parcel of known dimensions.

    John, I`m just the other side of Honiton... about 15 - 17 miles from Exeter..

    But only have one car for a day or two, and snowed under with job`s to do before we set off for Southport rally on Wednesday .. (No where near you but some one may be going that lives near to you..)..

    Perhaps the seller could drop it off at my place..... the only thing would be ... How big is it... cos I`m running out of space....:Sad: and it would have to fit in the "Toad".. behind the M.Home..

    Anyway.... the offer is there, mate.. :thumb:
