Delivery Estimate

I am a one person operation. I tend to concentrate on relatively small items, that require a degree of gentle and careful handling. These are typically not so much of a high monetary value, but rather reflect a sentimental or historical worth. I have, for example, undertaken some work (over the last couple of years) on behalf of the BBC’s Repair Shop Program. Typical items would be Clocks, musical instruments, Paintings, models and ornaments, smallish pieces of furniture etc. My clients are reassured that their items are only being handled by one person. Most of the time, I am only delivering one or two items at a time. Over the years I have therefore reduced the size of my vehicles accordingly. Currently I have a Citroen Dispatch but am looking to move down still further to a Bellingo size.

Areas Covered

As I am only one person and carry a small number if things at any one time, a logistical problem occurs. However, most parts of the UK can be covered. However, I rarely get as far north as Scotland or as far west as Cornwall. I also avoid London.

I am often asked whether I need articles to be packaged for me. Often this is not required. I find it is usually better to secure items myself with blankets cushions and bungee cords etc. Owners can help me do this whilst discussing any particular concerns they may have. Exceptions are often paintings which I tend to prefer receiving wrapped appropriately.
As you might expect, I am unlikely to be the cheapest option, however, I try to be as reasonable as possible. Typically I try to keep to a base charge of £80 plus VAT. If a large distance is required I may have to charge accordingly.
