Does anyone know of a company who does regular UK - IRL removals or a van service etc?

Basically I am looking for a metal lathe. The UK seems the be the place to purchase them however the difficult part is getting the lathe as everywhere is collection only.

This is the lathe in question

http://www.gandmtools.co.uk/cat_leaf.php?id=9546

These weight about 150 - 200kg which seperate from the bench if needs be for transport (if they were to go on a pallet they could be seperated but if its a guy with a van it can be put in as is).

or this one

These are the next step up and weight 500-800kg so weigh a good bit and would have to be seperated and put on a pallet.

Does anyone know of someone who does this? I was thinking to use a local company called waterford transport who charge €110 for a pallet to the UK (Id imagine its similar going the other way). However if someone will be passing with a van it can be loaded into it id be more assured as its not be loaded/unloaded constantly into trucks.

Any Ideas?

Or does anyone know of a lathe similar to the above? (ideally the Myford as it is much lighter and easier to move).

Thanks

James

I was looking for a lathe a few years ago and ended up buying new from Warco. They shipped the lathe, bandsaw and folder for about 150 sterling I think. Myfords seems to command a premium for the name - I was looking at a lot of second hand old English brand names but in the end i decided to buy new Chinese and it worked out well - although I did see a few major bargains later on in secondary school sell offs here e.g. a Harrison with extras for 300 euro!
