Thread: Help needed shipping parcel to Spain.

  1. #1

    Help needed shipping parcel to Spain.

    Hi all, I have found just the BMW E30 undertray I need on Ebay in Prices Risbough BUT he will not send, collect from his home only.
    So, I was wondering if anyone in that area would be willing to collect it for me, wrap it, it would be about 1.5M x 50cm x 40cm and 3 Kilos. Wrap it up and ship it out to me. Of course I would cover all expenses after I buy it. Of course anyone knowing a cheap way of shipping, that would be great too.

    I can't pick up from there mate, I am the other side of town.

    But if you can get it to me (SW19) using shipley for example (?)

    I can store it and package it up as best I can for overseas transport to you

    Thanks Steve, It's not the shipping that's the problem it's that he will not do other than "collect from my house",

    I can arrange courier from here if needs be, I just need to get the thing into the hands of someone considerably more cooperative and helpful.

    I have submitted for a quote from Shiply, be interesting to see the results.

    Ok Mate, you can use my address as a staging post, assuming Shipley do Ebay pickups,
    get it delivered here, that will buy you some time to get the overseas transport organised.

    Shiply came up with two quotes, both in the 130 GBP area. that is way too much for 3KG, OK it is 1.5M long by 50cm x 40Cm, mostly thin air. I used to be able to hitch a lift as it were from a van with spare space for a fraction of that but not now it seams. Also with air fares being so cheap driving down is expensive so only a very few do it now.

    I will find a way as I paid 30 GBP for a seat back without frame and I also have a new-ish LHD dashboard coming too, from UK via France. I ordered that before the shunt along with a new radiator that I have since fitted.

    Just primed the upper surface of the bonnet after doing the paint and insulation and it is a bloody mess, dings and dents and big depression to be sorted before paint, as it's a bg bugger any imperfections show up.
