Anyone in the Transporting buisness?

I'm in a bit of a pickle, I've found the perfect hedge trimmer for my tractor but unfortunately it's closer to France than it is to me, Dorset to be exact. It's also a big item weighing in at 545kg.

I need it delivering to my place in Fort William.

Anyone any ideas?

TIA

Local company I use is shears brothers. Try sbtl.co.uk. They do network stuff but also do direct loads sometime to the frozen north. Noel Tannock is the guy to talk to.
