  • Locationanybody know why this alternator isn't working?

Posted 08 September 2011 - 09:18 AM

lying on my hospital bed this morning in a drug induced haze I had an idea. There have been quite alot of us who have cars kit parts etc that need collecting. Given that we are scattered all over the county I thought it would be an idea to post and shipping requirements here so that if anyone has to go from a to b then they could assist in the ship.

Eg...I have a car in surbiton that I need to get to edinburgh. Now let's say that a fellow shitter in sw London has to come up here to collect a car he has bought in cental Scotland . If he checked this thread.and saw my requirement then he could collect my car and drive it up here or, I could collect his and drive to him. Or, ideally we meet half way.

Now this could.save us all on train fares or flights.

Obviously in your ' advert ' post you'd have to indicate road worthieness, insurance status tax and mot. Any costs/ money involved to be agreed by the parties.

What do you think?

As an extension to this, we could get a couple of 'shite hubs' around the more central parts of the country. E.g. the Management could say "we have some free space for parts in a Leicester unit", or I could say "you're welcome to park your shite near my house in Sheffield as long as you don't mind it getting broken into every other night". Shiter A has to travel for work from Glasgow to Birmingham, drops the parts in Leicester on the way. The following weekend, Shiter B has to travel from Norfolk to Manchester for a cousin's wedding. Returning home, he picks up the parts from Leicester and delivers them to Shiter C in Cambridge. Shitly fees saved, team spirit's up and and beer/petrol subsidies are flowing around.

A proper Shiteforce operation!

LOL!

I wouldn't get too excited as it is going to need some work. The previous owner decided to repaint it a rather patchy OMG RAT LUKZ etc matt Black, he is a 37 year old teacher but this was his first car and he did it in his teens!! It had been Sandglow. I don't mind black Maxi's but not in matt. So I am going to take the plunge and respray it, probably in its original Sandglow!

Used to do this for a mate everytime he bought cars. I'm located in the West Midlands. I've also done this a few times for others so isnt anything, but do bear in mind my car is a saloon so anything large parts like engines/bonnets big doors might be a bit too big to fit in my car.

Double ditto. Mine has no age restriction at all, but a specific exclusion for steam powered.

I have a Volvo 240 to take to Lundun for Fred, sometime between her finding somewhere to put it and the MoT running out (November). I have no way of getting home yet.

I don't mind shifting the odd shitter for local folk. Merseyside and surrounding areas. I have use of a trailer, but it's a tilt bed so if whatever crap that needs moving won't actually move by itself that will be your problem.

As the tow cars aren't even slightly fuel efficient, you're paying for the juice.

I can do some parts-hauling over the next few weeks - basically anything that'll fit into an AstraVan (I've had 2 Bluebird bonnets in there without any damage, so it's fairly roomy). Being on Anglesey, I could do pick-ups/drop-offs at the ferry port if needed.
Owing to skintness, diesel moniez would be needed, although it's fairly good on juice as I drive like an old fart.
