250 sounds a bit heavy, who made them. Have you rung around the couriers?

have a look at http://www.shiply.com

list the stuff you need moving, from where to where

the idea is anyone that is travelling between to places offers to shift it, leave it a few days, you get more offers and the price drops. lots of haulage compaines use, so if they have any half or empty loads heading your way, anything they can make towards running costs is a bonus

works well, had allsorts moved this last year through that site, couple of tons of oak from inverness to to the tyne for 80 quid, big old kelvin engine from southampton to the tyne for 50 quid
