Any muscle power available in the Hailsham area? (Post-Covid!)

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

This is a bit of an odd one. I've bought a second hand observatory dome - it's a 2.9m AstroDomes one like this:


It's in Sussex (Lower Dicker - BN27 postcode). Once the Covid restrictions are relaxed enough to allow it, I need to go down and collect.

It breaks down into two main sections and a few other bits (see photo). The two main sections are quite large, and likely to weigh around 160 kg each. So it's more than a 2-person lift. Aside from me and the seller, I'm probably going to need 2, possibly 3, other people to help me get the sections on the back of a dropside van.

Obviously I can't do any of this until Covid rules permit it. But I'd like to ask if there are any SGL members in that area who might be willing to lend a hand for an hour for some lifting when that happens? I'd be happy to cover their travel costs and a bit more for their trouble. If I get any responses then I know it's possible - if not, then I'll have to look at alternative shipping. Please don't respond if you have a bad back!
