Couriers for second hand power chairs

Hello!
Does anyone have any previous experience with selling or buying an electric wheelchair and using a courier? If so please could you advise which courier you used? And if the item got there safely? 
I'm struggling to get any quotes from companies! Thanks in advance for any help

    Hello @libbyy

    Welcome to the community! :) 

    I don't have experience of this but I wanted to let you know, I moved your post into our Aids, Adaptations and Equipment section of the forum, in the hopes someone can help :)

    Hi,

    I have sent a few large items & cars but never a powerchair.  

    I think it would either have to be sent as 'goods' on a pallet.  Or 'driven' as a vehicle on and off a truck.

    Have you tried AnyVan & Shiply for quotes?
