Not quite sure where to put this...

...but I am trying to get a change table (disassembled) and 37" plasma tv from North London to my sis in law in Birmingham (city centre near Bull Ring) either very late this Friday or saturday or sunday.

Will pay £100 and pack and wrap the stuff.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Dh will do it if you don't find a courier.

Thanks so much Countess Dracula and Zippi. Lazy line its a big telly - quite heavy so would need help loading/unloading at either end. My SiL has given me a 6pm onwards delivery time on the sunday evening - so its now very specific. I have got someone to do it for £125 which is a lot.

Might try the ebay guy - but the specific time is tricky.

Thanks again everyone.

Maybe not then Turnip. The weight is not an issue, DH is quite strong and would be happy to help.

He is working away in London at the mo' and his shifts are irregular (normally works in brum) so he won't know until late tomorrow if he will be working the weekend or not which probably leaves it all a little up in the air for you. I mean, it would be fine to commit to him picking up as he would be around Friday evening, either working or coming home to collect but the dropping off might be an issue as he might find out just before collecting that he has to work until very late on Sunday.

Sorry about the to and fro....Is there any way that you could get it dropped of elsewhere cheaper and then your SiL can collect? Would be happy to house them here for her until Sunday eve or does she not have transport?

Not to worry - it has to be in Brum Sunday evening as my SiL's Dh is then taking the stuff to Ireland on the ferry at about 5am mon am - so all a bit complicated. But thanks so much for offering!
