Hi all

I recently purchased a sidewinder off road buggy off a bloke in Haven Victoria now I need to get it up to Newcastle. I looked at one courier company that was going to charge a grand!! I really don't want to pay this much.

Has anyone got any recommendation on who I can use or another way of getting it up here for less than a thousand bucks..

Dimensions are as follows

L: 2600
W: 1450
H:1500

Cheers

(Mods please move if in the wrong section)

Here's a few pics so it will give an idea of actual size I'm talking about..

Well, there aren't too many options. You've eliminated one of them

The most obvious is to drive to Haven from Muswellbrook or wherever with a rented or borrowed car trailer. Got a tow bar on your car? Probably two to three days travel, two overnights plus fuel and rental costs, if any. How does that compare to a courier?

Thanks for ur input Calabrr :)

I've actually come across a company called "Uship" where I list an ad for my buggy to be transported from Vic to here and courier companies bid and then I choose who I want (most reliable/affordable)

Bloody awesome site, easy to use and they've even got an app for iPhone..

Got one bid so far @ $850, not bad hopefully gets to around $600
