I'm not sure if there are companies that specialise in this sort of thing. But I've used Fastway couriers to send server equipment around the country (Hawke's Bay to Auckland) a couple of times and have been happy with both the service and price.

Thanks, noted down Smile

My Dell arrived via PBT couriers (hope that name is right), anybody have experience with PBT?

Maybe give PBT a call to see what services they offer - mention that it is fragile and you don't think it'll fare well if it's dropped :)

I'm sure they have a fragile service.

i've had computers delivered from PBT (Peter Baker Transport) before.  I think Paradigm PC's use them (or they at least used to)
