    Try Greyhound buses. Used them a few years ago to ship a load of diving gear from NSW to Gladstone. Worked out cheaper than posting.

    I can't get to Margs before the New Year. Xmas plus family from Japan visiting. I'm happy to drive down for a surf and get it back to Perth for you early Jan if that's not too late. Pick up from business or private?

    Yes, its not a tojo, and yes, its a fairey overdrive. I may have this sorted via road freight (cheap if you're not in a hurry, and as it's a part for a Land Rover, there's definitely no association with hurrying) but if not, I'll sing out @Tenerrod It's collection from a private seller.

    I'll be coming to Wyong end of Feb, and going to Bunbury on the way. If you don't get it sorted, I will see if I can fit it in as I will be fairly loaded myself.
    Actually heding west via the Golden after that.

    Heading down to Margaret River on or about the 28 / 12 and heading back to Freo New Years in a small car.Would that be any help?It may be slightly easier for Tenerod to grab from here and pack in a little earlier.

    Geez l forgot all about this. I'm up to my neck in jarrah dust to. Just done 8hrs of floor sanding and I'm only a quarter done if that.
    I can't see myself having a day off for a few weeks now. I've got a full kitchen to rip out and new one in, including moving the plumbing.
    I'm happy to go down and get it in a few weeks, just flat out more than expected sorry.

    Hey guys, I've just noticed that this thread is now a sticky, no idea when that happened but woohoo! I really should get to updating the first post and checking in with everyone who has offered help to confirm that they're still willing and able and are in fact still living in the same place!
