Default Pick up from Bournemouth

Something has come up in Bournemouth that the seller won't post and I cannot get down there for a while, is there anyone local to Bournemouth that can pick this up and then allow me to arrange a courier to get it to Manchester?

Thanks

Chris

Default Re: Pick up from Bournemouth

I will be in Bournemouth the last weekend of October, and could potentially collect it and take it to RWB in early December for onward journey with another forum member. It would spend the intervening time in a self-storage unit. I have a tight schedule so the seller would need to be flexible.

This is assuming the item is not too large or heavy (single person liftable), reasonably clean, and does not contain anything deemed to be hazardous by the storage company (such as radioactive paint, unstable asbestos or transformer oil).

Also the next step of the journey must be in place. I don't want to be storing it beyond RWB.

I don't want to get involved with packing for courier collection though, due to the cost and hassle of obtaining packing materials, and the liability if it is damaged due to inadequate packing in courier transit.

Hi Paul,

Thanks for the kind offer but I have managed to persuade them to post the item, saves mess around.

Thanks

Chris
