Seems legit.

What's the worst that could happen. :lol:

Not read much of this thread but £80 is a fair amount for that distance. What time frame was implied?

Personally I wouldn't trust anyone not recommended or fully insured for arcade game transportation. Transporting kitchen appliances is one thing, they can easily be replaced, Japanese candy however...

I guess :cry:

Seems a bit too good to be true, he says he's down this way on the 26th and thats why its £80, and has ratchet straps.

:think:

His 0 feedback is making me a bit wary though, god I might just have to use '2 weeks Les' :awe:

Ended up going with a trusted courier on shiply in the end, picked up today and dropping off tomorrow, £100.

Very polite guy, came 9am this morning, lets hope all goes to plan and if so I'll be using him again for sure. :)

Na, it was me in a confined space with 100m of bubble wrap,

I also 'stole' the pallet from a local iron monger (it was closed) when I took it

Because I view it as me doing them a favour. They probably needed someone to uplift them anyways :oops:

Anyone know of a good, reliable and cheap (often not a combination that exists) courier that would be able to ship an Egret II to Germany?

Thanks!

I would ask Ronnie or moshpit. 180 euro from holland / Germany to the uk, I would hope it's similar the other way round?

You do need to pallet the cab though.
