What would be great is if a local shiter could at least get it off site and store - that would really be the most helpful - I could pass over the funds to your account so you could pay him cash. Then I could arrange to pick it up myself or by courier in the next few weeks.

 

Appreciate that is a big ask - but beer monies of course for any help please.

 

There's no paperwork (of course, I would not expect any), but a full receipt will be provided.

Thanks, that is definitely the right direction. Appreciated. Can you please PM me your postcode 95 quid, and I'll get some shiply quotes to yours as well, which may be more advantageous (only 40 miles).

 

Thanks.

I've called this morning and provisionally agreed the purchase - he won't take any money from me as they are having some problems with their bank, but I have at least a verbal agreement that it is mine, for what it is worth. I still think there is potential for him to change his mind, so will have to take him at his word.

 

They will use a telehandler to get it off the ridge, and I've agreed to arrange transport in the next week or so.

 

shit is getting realer.

 

This is brilliant. I'm excited!

 

Could do a quote with these for comparison purposes:

It's not showing on their web site.

No, but as a seasoned PT Cruiser licker, I've spotted the blue one they have on offer, with a December ticket.  I'd be all over that if I was driving.

Egg, are you not in a position to take delivery at the moment?  Surely it'd be a lot easier to just get it picked up and brought down to yours, rather than faffing about dropping it half way and then getting it Shiply'd the rest of the way at a later date?

Yeah, this is very much my way - faff around during the process, but once I've made a decision, it will happen!

 

I wanted to keep my Mondeo off road for the rest of the salty season - but I guess this takes immediate precedence.

 

I still only have one quote on the table for the full journey from shiply. I wonder if it is because I listed it under 'other vehicles' rather than cars. We'll see, there might be a flurry on Sunday night as drivers set up their work for the week (though I know most of these guys work 24/7)

Well I could potentially go and get it from the yard next Saturday, assuming availability of suitable assistance for loading into the van, but I wouldn't be able to store it.  Depends on what Shiply comes up with I suppose.

Oooh this is getting properly exciting :) im looking forward to seeing some Mk12 action on here :) (now we just need someone to get a Tippen Delta and someone else to get a Model 67 and we will have the whole "trifecta" of the last villiers invalid carriages before the Model 70 showed up)

 

it might be time for plasticvandan to spill all he knows about Mk12s

 

because if Model 70 info is scarce, Mk12 info is even scarcer sadly, plus I thoroughly enjoy any invalid carriage info I can get my hands on :)

 

(on that note, I THINK Zel might have a brake hose thingy for a Mk12 invacar)

Just a thought but could 95quidpeugeot find enough pallets to wheel the mk12 straight out of Wuvs Maxus? That way it would be a lot easier to reload it into whichever van picks it up in a couple of months time.

I'm conscious I've generated plenty of heat here, I hope this comes off!!!

A few quotes from 'delivery quote compare' for the whole journey, best is £240 to date.

I'm going to be £500 into this without having seen it...ace.

I think next step is to pay the fiver to promote the journey on Shiply, I have had success with this before, I'll do that shortly.

I think we have a back up plan though from Wuv, Barmatt and 95 quid, which I'm grateful for, but even better if I can get it before next weekend.

I could hire a van and do the delivery next weekend but there would need to be a few quid on top of van hire (£85 a day) plus fuel

I'm always up for a random retrieval / resurrection missions. It's been at least 6 days since Wuv and I did this and I'm hankering to relive it.

tis MOT exempt :)

 

but you might want a bottle of 2 stroke oil for the pez shot... (do any petrol stations sell premix anymore?)

 

good thing the fact it has only half a floor doesn't matter because its driven from entirely 1 hand  :mrgreen: (how exactly im still not 100% sure...)

 

its probably not heel n toe, more finger n thumb...

I think actually driving it is the least of my worries, lol.

 

But it's like this - chances of rare 3 wheeler being saved while sitting on a hillock on Norfolk 0%.

 

Chances of being saved if I blow this year's motoring budget on it - slightly more than 0%.

I thought the reason for taking it to £95Pug's was that you didn't actually want it at yours yet?

It's not my preferred option Wuv, but as yet have had no quotes on the shorter journey to 95Pug's - so resigning myself a bit to the fact if I go for a courier, it might be all the way to my lock-up.

 

The other thing I've been thinking about is how to unload it my end if I hire a van....
