Pay for it monday then no extra fees...you should have an invoice in your account.
Othe option is hire a flatbed truck for a day an pick up yourself....thats how i picked up Westy from North wales...bought £80 hire and £60 in derv..gotta take a day off but saves some pennys.
If need be i can pick up for you and store here if you wanna go that route...or drive it home....breakdown and get recovered home free...done that too with clio i bought in Bristol...lol

Yeh a day of work costs me 280 quid plus rental etc I will pay for it being delivered, but of a sting but I'm sure I can get that money back from sale of the engine and gear box maybe, plus the interior which will come out eventually

Thanks for offering to help though, much appreciated.

Just been chatting with my to lay out how I'm doing things.

Get car running good first and then get any extra stuff I need before engine swap etc as I need a few bits still

Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.

Total cost, car, fees, and delivery it is going to be 1300.

Car I got for 725
Fees 180
Delivery 400

Would have been nice to be able to not have to pay for delivery but meh, it would only cost me the same in lost earnings etc so I'm not to bothered

Thats quite cheap I think...

True, usually delivery cost less than you losses from day off work and petrol would cost
