Panel Saw Haulage Cost?

Postby Meccarroll » Wed Dec 28, 2016 11:16 pm

Hi all I have just made a purchase of a Panel saw on ebay, trouble is it's 270 miles away and I need to either rent a suitable trailer or find a haulage firm to transport it for me.

Does anyone know a firm that does this sort of haulage. I've tried Uship 3 times but their system keeps altering the saw's dimensions to about three times it's actual size so I won't be able to obtain any reliable quotes using their system.

Saw is located in Southport and I'm in Lowestoft.

Any help is appreciated.

Mark

I think Jas broke his down, and put it back together the other end ?
it was a while ago though, so I could be wrong.

I would try these maybe

not far away and they will be used to moving stuff like that about, dont see why they wouldn't quote you for it.

I collected mine on a hired flat bed truck which was easy as it was at a farm so it was loaded on with a tele fork as for at my end that was fun!! :shock:

But we managed it.

Id hire a vehicle or even a trailer and pick up yourself.

Probably best on a flat bed van/truck, trailers just bounce and things drop off!

Thank you for the replies Chaps.

Saw is now collected. I used a trailer, winch and wheeled trolly in the end. The saw was quite heavy but the winch and trolly made quite a difference. As suggested by some, I had to agree, it would probably be better collecting myself to avoid any damage. I did check out a Pallet company who came in at no more than what it cost me for diesel, but I just did not want to risk it this time :cry:

Anyway many thanks for the replies and suggestions, they have all been very much appreciated and noted for next time.

Many thanks, Mark
