Hey everyone,
Having jumped the gun and purchased a slightly used 1 group commercial machine, I need to transport it from Vic to the Gold Coast.
The seller has no crate. So I need to securely package it and arrange for transport.
Pack and Send was $340. plus insurance.
I am looking to buy (under $100) a used crate and pallet to accommodate it.
Machine is 500mm x 500mm x 510mm .
Weight is about 45kg.
I am happy to negotiate arrangements etc so i can deliver the crate to the seller in VIC.
Please contact me via PM.
Please feel free to post any alternate suggestions.

Thanks for your help

Per brief discussion on chat with Derrilex:

If makign a crate, he would be using ply or MDF. Bunnings sells a range of cheap and nasty sheets from 9 mm to 18 mm - or a flooring product called yellow tongue for about $40 a sheet ( 19 mm) thick


I'd happily make one, but looks like muscles can arrange something for collection from Thomastown.

Edit: Oh yes, most commercial machines will have some means to screw them securely to the pallet so they don't move in transit. Might mean removing feet, but there will be a way.

May be able to offer other locations too... We ship weight plates and dumbbells Australia wide so also have pallets with wooden crate firmly attached to them. The only thing they lack is a lid, but that should be easily sorted.

May I suggest - complete foam restraint
I make this suggestion with past experience

Wrap the machine in plastic (important)
Use as many as required - expanding foam bag modules for complete security inside the box



The box is then strapped to a small skip/pallet


And then cling wrapped

Yes great minds

And just to expand on packaging foam a little
It is very important that expanding foam does not come into contact with anything you want to keep
e.g. a coffee machine

If this stuff comes into contact with said shiny machine you will never get it off
Hence my suggestion of wrapping the machine and any foam is in there own bags as well
This is known as a goods -double safety system

Just curious Lwowiak - what is the model of the 1-group commercial machine ?

Reason I ask is one of my 1-group commercial machines went missing in Melbourne.

Jeff, strictly legitimate purchase.
It is an Italian hand made lever, slightly used.

With airline tickets so reasonable it would be remis of me to also advise that you accompany the machine by purchasing it's own seat
Classical musicians do it all he time with large or expensive instruments
Weight should not be a factor just that it fits on the seat

your one lucky bugger!  I saw that and I would have said yes straight away.  I was serious considering one of those.  Why s/he wanted rid of it I would never know.  $2000, they gave it away.

Pay what it costs, you'll still be way ahead!

Shhh... Don't spoil the big reveal.  It may end up being a 6910 with a lever glued on the font the actuates the button costing $20 000.  Over o you Lwowiak you lucky ########
