Cheap as chips, but bear in mind that you work to their timetable that's how they're so cheap. Communications very very good, and you can pay by cash when they drop the cab off.

Great bunch of guys, and I can highly recommend them. Usually about £65 from anywhere to anywhere in the country but still best to call for a quote ;)

I've used them 3 times now and I've got no complaints.

Oh man. That's a nice price. Everyone in the USA wants $250 to $400 for up and down the East Coast. It's terrible.

I emailed them 2 days ago and didnt get a reply, thats why I had to ring! I hate haggling :lol:

Im just waiting for the guys postcode then il ring back up and try and knock them down

probably slightly cheaper to go and collect it myself but for an extra £20 I may as well save myself the hassle

Cabinet Couriers

Postby DandySephy » October 20th, 2008, 6:17 pm

At the moment I've got a cab on hold for me, but it's too far away for me to pick it up myself (I don't drive myself so I'm reliant on someone else to drive me. Driving halfway up the country is too big an ask). Has anyone got any first hand experience of using a courier and can recommend one? The cab is a Naomi Uni (weighs 110kg iirc) and the seller does not have a pallet. I know a courier that will supply a pallet, but will only do so if the weight is under 70kg. I think this is just a health and safety rule for the driver which they may overlook if the seller helps (I imagine tilting it to get the pallet underneath will be a good start), but obviously I'll have to email them first.

That said, I'd rather go with someone who can be vouched for by other cabinet buyers and sellers. Any suggestions? Some of the websites for couriers are not exactly impressing me to use their service.

Thanks, I was actually after someone that can be vouched for rather then a random person, but some of those are tempting....

Can some verify that these right couriers I've googled?

Tone used Lans couriers for the last order. Assuming it's the same one, then they are very good. I think Andy Geezer uses T&T

T&T (Tom & Tandy) were good for me for both my Uni cabs, tail lift ahoy.
