Can anyone suggest a suitable company who could move a 700kg lathe from Gloucester to Hampshire.
The quotes I have had are prohibitive.
Many thanks in advance

Vic Haines Transport in Pershore will oblige, try ringing them on 01386 553288. Lorry with a loading crane or palletised or whatever. No connection, we use then a lot at work and they travel all over the country. I've had stuff on a return load from Scotland no trouble, prices as good as anyones.
In a previous existence I used Charles Russell Transport in Tewkesbury. Might be worth a try on 01242 680678. I see their lorries all over the country, so they're still at it.
No connection to either - just a happy customer.

Wow a mention of Charles Russell. Used him a lot in the late 90s collecting EDM Spark erosion machines. Good to see they are still around.

I've used him several times for machines including a series 1 Bridgeport which was a task and a half. Affordable, very hard working.
