Pallet Delivery to France

Have a delivery going to ANDERNOS, France. Area code 33510.

It's a Honda 115hp 4 stroke Outboard which weighs lets say 220 kgs with other bits included such a pallet etc. It's going to be about 1.6m in length, 1m wide and will be about 1m high so will not come under the standard pallet dimensions.

I've tried speedshift who have quoted 400+ based on 2 pallets being charged. I found that ridiculous considering I sent one to Germany today through them which cost me 117 ??? I've also tried Kay's transport who have said 200 + VAT based on dimensions above rather than 2 pallets! Reasonable

Anybody have any cheaper options so I can save my customer some cash.

Mark

Thanks for the heads-up. I've put in a quote request but not had anything back yet. Im hoping a little gem will come up trumps on here.

Cheers

Give it time if you can the price normally tumbles in a day or two!

All sorted. Thanks. Shipley is a place I've used before it not really looked at recently. This time I've gone with a local agent not through Shipley

Cheers
