    Does such a thing exist? LOL! I'm looking to buy at least four boost alloys, with/without tyres and continually miss some real bargains because sellers are based in GB and , understandably, prefer collection only. I'm looking for a courier who can collect nationwide and not charge the earth and was wondering if anyone has found such an animal, either to or from NI?

    When I'm back in tommorow I will find some numbers.
    These are pallet collection only.
    Weight is normally up to 400kgs.
    Iv had items/engines collected from Germany & they ship to NI 3times a week. They also do tail lift collections
    Company

    https://www.freightport.co.uk/

    Get a general quote on a pallet
    120x100x & PM me there quote.
    Will see if I can get cheaper ;)
    As company ship loads through them.

    PM'd Phill.
    For info to anyone else interested in NI courier options, Frieghtport couldn't actually quote me for a single pallet from GB to NI. I'm at LRO 2018 next week, so will have to look the other way at anything other than a keyring :(:confused: Disappointing and @doriz option is now looking good!

    I suppose it depends on what you want shifting.
    Daughter's bf studies in Leeds, lives near Omagh. He sometimes drives (small hatchback), sometimes flies Belfast Intl or Londonderry. It all depends on whether it fits in with both's travel plans and schedules.
    Have you considered approaching the companies that regularly run freight across the Irish Sea, either the Co. or individual drivers. I regularly see them on M6 on their way to Larne.

    I'm in a similar position as OP.

    I'm trying to get a set of steel wheels, bumper and a set of rocksliders across the pond. It's almost costing more than the items...
