Thanks Joe for the update

Just heard from courier. Delivery will be on Friday 10th May 09.00 to 17.00 hrs.

Driver should phone me 40 minutes before delivery. Tailgate of truck is only rated to 500kgs and consignment is 800kgs plus. Means I'm going to be handballing it off truck. :(

Anyone available on the 10th May with 40 minutes notice to assist?

I am heading off again on 16th May until 24th May. Would be good if collected befor 16th May.

That's rated for lifting, going down with 800kg will be quick and easy.. :lol: moving an 800kg pallet truck maybe not so easy.

You could always offload onto a spare pallet side by side in the truck, then they can wheel the two pallets where you want.
