Re: Need wheels to get from Qld to NSW

I sent an XR6 spoiler to a bloke in Sydney from CQ.
I sent it through TNT with no real problerms except for the
cost.
Initial quotes from both end (we both got quotes) were much cheaper
than the invoice we received.
You must get the quote cast in concrete otherwise you will have all
sorts of heartache when you get your wheels.

Good luck!

Ed :)

What kind of price did it end up being? Wheels are heavy so im expecting them to cost a bit to transport.

Re: Need wheels to get from Qld to NSW

I got a coupla 16" rims (no tyres - just rims) sent down to nsw central coast via courier(7-8 months back),transport costs came to $32 a rim. The fella I bought em off arranged the transport & had em delivered to my door no probs whatsoever. I can't precisely remember the company that did the job - might have been australian express, or somethin like that (they had red white & blue colour scheme on the truck)

Re: Need wheels to get from Qld to NSW

Its been worked out, some company called chemex or something. Its $180, that works out at less than $50 a rim, so im happy enough. Hopefully they'll be here tomorrow- no more 14's for me!
