The 13th is still available but you will need to accept the bid to secure the service. Best regards Clayton - europeandeliveryman (01-12-2018)

Question: My apologies Jem,

But i have now been booked for the 13th for a house move to Malaga.

Best regards Clayton - europeandeliveryman (02-12-2018)
Response: No worries Clayton. When’s your next available date? Also do you have a trailer that can go into a slipway? Or will the boat definitely need to be craned off it?
Question: Hi,

My trailer can not go into a slip, we could hire one for aroud £70 a day. I would plan to collect very early in the morning and delivery late evening.

My next available date would be the 21st December, but please understand I am in discussion with multiple jobs, so i always work on deposits paid first.

Best regards Clayton

Response: Understood. I can’t seem to find the £700 quote to accept it. Could you put it through again if possible please & I’ll pay the deposit. I’ll also see if I can slip it in thi
Week & pay the extra for trailer if need be
