I've seen in many other car forums that they have a thread devoted to fellow members offering to help pick things up, store and post items bought around the country. Could we set up a sticky in here for that? I've seen many threads started about it so it might be easier if they are all in one place? What do you guys think?

Yeah good idea. I had someone in Germany ask if I could post something out because the seller wouldn't post.

Could someone please pick up a Diff for me in Hull and post it to Lancaster? The Seller isn't willing to post.

I'll compensate you for your time. big grin

Edit = Looks like I won't need this now. The seller is trying to get out of selling the item. I was expecting this tbh. I would be a bit upset if a Quaife diff sold for 15 quid laughing

Does anyone travel from Chippy Sodbury (Bristol Area) up the M6 towards Lancaster at all?

Phil Has an exhaust that I would like but can't collect in person at the moment.

Thank you
