Hi all
Looking to get a set of rims shipped from Melb to the Gold Coast. Anybody used anybody good and inexpensive?
I normally use Ego but their quote was pretty exxy.
Who knows what?

E-Go from my experience is the cheapest option. I've sold wheels and tyres and sent them via e-go for around $60.

 

What quote are you getting with E-Go?

Ego came back with $50 per wheel or the "special price" of $235 for four...

Try these guys: http://courierquotes.com.au/

I recently had a head shipped from WA & the seller used that service. Freight price was very reasonable.

I used www.baggagefreight.com.au last week and it was quite reasonable... I ended up booking it to Star Track Express for about 2/3 the price of e-go.

 

Not many companies allow depot to depot delivery like e-go does though.

I was gonna say, depot to depot may make it significantly cheaper. Without knowing the address of sender / receiver it may be a remote area which is jacking up the price / quote. Have you tried depot to depot?

You could try Lynden from SupaTow, he does Door-to-door services, regular trips from Gold Coast to Melbourne and I seem to remember him being very cool with moving car parts as well.

He's very cheap with moving vehicles, $900~ for a bare shell with no underbody components (aka had to lift the shell on and off) and a seperate engine from Gold Coast to Bendigo (mind you he went to Melbourne before dropping the vehicles off in Bendigo). So I think he would do you a pretty good deal on moving some wheels.

Also, you would be on the backload, so it'd probably be even cheaper.
