If forum courier service seems too much hassle can i recommend paisley freight services. I found them on ebay. Dubious I know. But i bit the bullet and used them to pick up a full range rover interior from oxfordshire to blackpool. Only cost 45T: 24hr service too. They also do fixed prices for alloy wheels. Just google them.:)

I don't suppose your van will be up to any driving Mozza - It'll either be in smouldering pieces or in orbit soon LOL:

Seriously - you should see if you could do a forum courier relay from Scotland to Cornwall to see if it can be done!

I've taken the liberty of sticking me oar in Rasp:

I'm planning a road trip up through wales and on to scotland at the end of the month but it'll be me, the missus and two kids, plus camping gear and all that guff so there really won't be room for a tailgate. If it was something smaller then I would have gladly picked it up for you mate. If we were just coming straight back then it would be better but we're spending a few days on the journey each way. Sorry I can't help but best of luck and I'd like to see the FCS (forum courier service) work at this level T:.
