Big thumbs up for Speedshift here too.....They've carried lots of bit and pieces for us including several outboards.....Always found them to be reliable /cheap. In fact, a couple of years ago one of the local drivers they use out of Swansea, who had carried on with his deliveries through the snow (when others had headed home) delivered a large OB for us .....couldn't make it up the driveway though, so assisted us by carrying it with a group of mates I dragged out of the pub....
