Beg, borrow, steal: Trailer wanted in/around Basel for 1-2 days

Calling all EFers with a trailer... anyone got one I could beg, borrow or steal sometime over the next couple of weeks?

I only need it for 1-2 days. To transport building material (foam, lots of it) and granite over a short distance.

PM me if you have something...

Failing that, any recommendations for hire around the region appreciated.

TIA

Carlos

The place I use is in Egg bei Zurich - too far for you I guess. Sorry I can't help beyond that.

If you can collect from Zurich you're welcome to use mine, it's about 1.6x1.1m internal with a tallish frame and cover

Thanks GG - very kind offer, but it would add a day (2 x 0.5 days) of time that I'd need to factor in to get it and bring it back, and time is at a premium at the mo...

Thanks. Am hoping to avoid that as that adds 0.5 days, but it is a fall back...

Re: Beg, borrow, steal: Trailer wanted in/around Basel for 1-2 days

Hey Carlos, there is a lady at work who might be able to lend you her husbands one. She's going to check tonight and let me know. The only reason that it might be a "no" is he had offered to drive some stuff down to Lugano for his nephew but she's not sure when.

Hi Carlos,

It's a no go with the trailer I'm afraid

Sorry about that and I hope you find a solution soon.
