Hi and welcome,
we found it cheaper to buy an old Transit and drive it here ourselves. Mrs Silvers sister used a transport company and it cost her £2500 for a 3 bed semi size load. We have their number if you need it.

We found a website called Load up, you can PM me if you would like details or i am sure a search engine would find them.

You post your a request online that you need boxes taken from A to B, and within hours we had companys calling us with quotes.
W
e had so many contact us we even challenged them to start beating the other quotes!!!

Found it to be a cheaper option for our furniture than going direct to a removal company :)

Good Luck with the move ... not long now :)

If you click on Siobhan's name it should give you the option to send a PM.

Not sure about this forum, but some say you have to of posted a few times before you can send private messages.

If you have trouble next time i see her i will get the details for you. :) :rolleyes:

Hi Siobhanwf and all

Where do Virus's, Junk mail and spyware come from?

Leaving a full email address is a dangerous thing to do. This Forum like others is visited by things called Bots some from Google others from Msn and others from who knows where. They are programs designed to gather information.

When you receive email and you do not know or understand how these people get you address could it be you have left your email for others to see. Look at the email address below. Take care how you leave your email address if you have to. Most people looking at the email address below would understand what has to be done to send the email address correctly.

Practice safe emailing.

Thanks for the advice Peter.
Luckily I have a system that blocks spyware and junk mail etc that is very efficient but I take you point. TA!
