Anyone else stuck for transporting car bits at the moment? I got a very good deal off a courier to pick up three exhausts from various parts of the country and deliver to me in Sheerness, if anyone wants the contact details?

I would need someone who can trailer a car from Dumfries to Newcastle, seems like the guys I get my quotes from are fairly booked out right now! Odd considering you'd expect it to be the other way around. Anyone in the are who'd be up for it?

There’s a set of alloy wheels with tyres in Bournemouth that I’d really like, but the seller isn’t keen on having them couriered to Scotland. Is there anyone able to deliver them or part of the way, or maybe go to the sellers house, buy them, then post onto myself? Will pay for them beforehand and postage etc. Thanks!

I've bought @Hertz's dad's RX300 18" alloys, which I intend to dabble with to see if they a) fit over the LS's massive front brakes and b) can be refurbed and shod in rubber without it being completely uneconomical.

I fully intend to collect them once non-essential journeys are permitted, and would probably take a day off to do this, given it's over two hours each way. 

However, if anyone is planning on travelling south from Sandback (junction 17 of the M6, I think) either soon or in the near future, there would be grateful beer tokens available if you were able to collect them for me and move them in any way closer to junctions 15, 15a or 16 of the M1, or even drop them off at my house in a careful non-contacty fashion.

 

I have my first site visit to our Warrington office next week, I know it's going in the wrong direction to Northampton but if any shiter is around Warrington/Manchester who is going down south anytime soon and going towards Northampton I could drop off/meet them if they are able to assist.

Is anyone travelling from Birmingham to Yorkshire or Scotland atm? Or would anyone be willing to do a contact free collection of a pair of tyres from Brum so I can sort a courier? They are collect only, sadly.

Cheers for bumping this request.

Please let me know if storage for the wheels becomes a problem and I'll try to find a beauty spot in your neck of the woods that would count as a 'visit' for exercise purposes.

For those who did not notice I bought HMC’s R8 Rover 216SLi Auto and the deal was I could wait until after lockdown to collect it. Thing is I would quite like it now!

I am in a vulnerable group so using public transport at the moment is not on, paying to have it transported is a poor use of money. Usually I would just ask for a volunteer to come to Devon with me but at the moment sharing cars with non household members is not advised and I am happy to take that advice. I may have been able to entice Mrs6C for a nice weekend in Devon, but a quick blat there and back in the day is not going to work.

I will ask can anybody get my Rover 216 SLi Auto from Tavistock closer to Buckingham?

I will pay the fuel and any reasonable expenses for collection/onward travel.

The car is MOTed and Taxed.

The car will show up as insured on the data base, but my insurance will not cover you so you will need your own 3rd party.

I would also consider a plan if somebody needed a temporary car they take it, use it and bring it to me in due course.

Having recently left a deposit on a car from this parish, I'm currently thinking of ways to potentially make the collection less arduous. I can collect it myself but it's a near 500 mile round in that case, which is grueling. Is there anyone here who for whatever reason is able to get a car from near junction 6 on the M25 to as close towards York as possible? Tax, fuel and insurance will be taken care of. Added bonus of being quite an interesting vehicle with a lush brown interior. PM for details.

Missed this but I could pick them up if it' still on the cards.

They're not, sadly. Missed the auction :( I may need to get an exhaust from Dronfield to West Yorkshire now. Not sure which area you're in?

Yes please. I'm trying to get a Citroen BX gearbox from TR16 (Cornwall) to West Yorkshire and it's looking expensive so far...
