Hey guys

I have made the plunge and bought a bandsaw off another member here. It is a 150 kg beast on a pallet.

So decided to get it through a pallet collection service, but there are so many and most of them seem to have negative reviews of items being damaged and not turning up on time to collect or deliver, unprofessional behaviour etc.

I am sure some of you have used s similar service, can you please recommend one?

Best regards
B

Steve Cox at Landylift has had a good rep here for the past 10 yrs:

Another alternative is Steve of Landylift. He specialises in moving engineering machines and advertiese ove at the Home Workshop site.

I can thoroughly recomend him. I have used him a couple of times and he really knows what he is doing and a thoroughly noce chap too. As a bonus he move the machine to it's final location if you want too.

Another +1 for Steve. He recently delivered (to me) a Colchester Chipmaster lathe (all 550kg of it). It wasn't a long journey between sites, but my steeply sloping drive wasn't a problem and he was able to get it straight into the garage with the small crane on his wagon. Nice bloke too.

If you assume pallet couriers are going to do their best to destroy what you're sending and secure it accordingly you won't go too far wrong. I've never had one of my shipments damaged (touch wood), I use steel banding to secure to the pallet.
I have moved a couple of machines for members of this forum in the past (minilathe22's hazdent lathe was pushing the envelope a bit). Always done it to fit around where I'm working and it's worked out well.
