I'm looking to transport a couple of boxes of books from UK (Cambridge) to near Dax for a friend who is having to remain in France due to disability preventing her going back to UK. Any ideas?
The problem here is the distance. I know people with suitable vehicles but they are going to charge rather a lot of money. Are the books worth it?
Probably not commercially but they have sentimental value to my friends. I was hoping they might form part of a larger removal. No hurry.
Not sure how useful this will be - & depending on size of boxes - but I will happily transport them from Folkestone to near Recey Sur Ource for free & gratis at the end of March. Of course, that means you have to get them to Folkestone and from Recey but if you're interested let me know.
Thank you Maisie for your kind offer. I would be willing to take them to Folkestone but unfortunately my friend cannot drive far and has no friends in that area who could bring them from Recey (I believe it is near Dijon?) so it would not work that end.
Sorry, Rosa, I didn't look carefully enough at the delivery address & assumed it was in Burgundy!
I'm sure that you've done this, Rosa, but just in case; have you posed your question in the South-Aquitaine AngloInfo? If not, you are likely to be far more successful at that site. Good luck!
Thanks for your advice Tigger, I was not sure how to post on another forum, I am registered on this one. I hoped there might be some companies recommended who do this sort of removal generally in France. I will try to post on the Aquitaine website.
Here's a way to do so copy & paste in your browser, https://www.angloinfo.com/France Chose the AI regional site, you may have to login again use the same login & pass word for AI Burgundy
Thanks for your help. I have managed to make a posting there.
That was quick!
Maybe worth your while posting on both the Dordogne site and the midi pyranees south too , the south Aquitaine site has very little traffic on it and lots of the users from that area use the above mentioned.
Thanks 'itinerant child' that is a good idea.
