How do you move a large item?

Large items can be a bit of a nightmare in general, but what happens when you need to move a large item somewhere? Perhaps you want to sell something on eBay or a similar selling site, or Facebook group even, and you have to consider how you would move the item.

Of course, you could just say it was only available locally and that the buyer had to collect – plenty of people do this, the trouble with that approach is that you massively limit the potential buyers your item will attract. What if you want to buy a particular dining table from someone who lives 200 miles away? It’s the perfect dining table, you’ve not seen one like it anywhere else, but you don’t want to drive a 400 mile round trip; and even if you did, you’d have to hire a van to transport it.

Imagine selling a piano for example – most people end up trying to sell these locally. You could be waiting a long time though, and still then you and the buyer have to think about transportation.

Maybe you’ve bought a car? The car is in Devon and you live in Glasgow. Not ideal. It could cost you a lot of money to get a train to collect your car and then in fuel to get home – but there is a cheaper and more efficient way.
