My wife wanted a great big kiln for glasswork and I bought one on EBay. However, it was in the North-East and I'm in the South, and the kiln weighs over 100Kg. I used a web address for a courier and was redirected to UShip who got a quote from QS logistics: I accepted it as it wasn't much more than it would have cost me in diesel to go there and back, and I didn't have a clue how I was going to manage 100Kg of kiln anyway! They collected it and delivered it to my house and carried it inside. A weight off my mind and onto the studio floor.
If there is a next time, I know exactly where to go!
