I've sent an engine through Tasfreight. They were good enough to deal with, cant complain about their service, or price. They do all around australia not just to and from tasmania.
http://www.tasfreight.com.au/

Also received my 13bt from Border Express, again cant complain with them either.
http://www.borderexpress.com.au/

But aside from those two, and northlinefreight, what other companies do engine transport from private addresses, door to door? Its the door to door part I'm having trouble with.

Hope the other new ones are useful to someone!

Pack and Send - you can lick my hairy balls.

Got a price on a bare block from Sydney to Adelaide. Now depending on the depot in Adelaide (and this was for me to pickup) it was either $260 or $190! You're a bunch of CUNTS.

Looks like Northline are the go, probably half the price. Have used Border Express as well for engines with good results and prices.

Ive used ezysend b4, they were pretty good for price. Their same day pick up didnt occur though, actually took a couple of days to be picked up. That was probably the freight company that they used though not actually ezysends stuff up.

Yep, Border Express.

Got 3 boxes sent over (Sydney to Adelaide) consisting of engine parts and a dummy assembled motor. Total weight was about 100kg.

Cost $78 which I think is their minimum charge.

Settle petal. Just because they can't be competitive, not every company is equipped to ship engines :?

Got a few quotes today, Pack/Send and AirRoad wanted near enough to $95 door to door. Startrek wouldn't do it because it's private, neither would Courier's Please. Still waiting on Northline to call me back, because they don't have a depot in Canberra. Busfreight won't carry any 1 item over 20kgs.

Went with Border Express, $60ish door to door for a 25kg, .76x.26x.26 carton.

The engine was in pieces and packed in individual boxes that were placed on a pallet with other loose goods. As far as I know most companys can move pallets. Australia post would even accomodate this..........

The issue is not competition, it's being ripped off.

I've been using "AirRoad" of late for engine and a gearbox plus bits.
But on the last job (gearbox/bits) buggers hit me up an extra $60.00 packing. :evil:

Pack & Send just onforward to TNT :idea:
Not all Pack & Sends are shit. If you're in Adeliade Unley Pack & Send is the only one worth considering, excellent for packaging fragile stuff.
If anyone needs stuff from non-CBD/country it's worth giving CITY FAST Couriers a call,best service bar none.

Hey guys

Just be careful with Northline
make sure that when you send something, that you have the insurance waiver aswell

I sold a Gbox to MADMAX and northline dropped it, smashing the bell housing and shifter off the box. they are covering it with their insurance company which isnt too much of a big deal, just a head fuck

Make sure you package your goods, tie them down n a pallet or something when your sending goods


cheers


dont like my sidewalk driving? then dont get in my car!
