    Tractor Transport

    Hi All,

    I'm looking to get a Massey 240 uplifted in North Wales and dropped off in Glasgow.
    Any suggestions for getting it moved at reasonable cost? I've had a couple of quotes, but the cost is prohibitive so far.

    Thanks.

    There are websites advertising for back loads. You might be lucky with one of them. I always phone around a few local transport firms to see if they are going near the area in question.
    Don't itch for something if you're not prepared to scratch for it.

    I was of corse joking, but many years ago my neighbour went to Dagenham and drove an old paraffin Fordson major home to save the delivery. He had to buy a new set of tyres,

    On this side of the pond, my father used to tell a story from before WWII about walking a draft horse about 30 miles - leading it until his feet got sore then riding until something else got sore - then trying to decide which was the least sore.

    Thanks for all the suggestions, I have arrangements in place now, but your info will no doubt come in handy for future transactions. One of my mates suggested driving it up and camping along the way. I might have considered that, had the brakes not been shot. Who knows we may have invented a new form of travel holiday here. Sort of narrow boating for the roads.
