Storage pretty much anything at all short term (less than a week) small stuff long term no problem.. Cars or bikes: by agreement up to a month, dependent on how full my yard is. Transport: anything relatively clean that can fit into a large estate car, and is local, or I can offer my car trailer but I will need fuel covering for this unless it's very local (14mpg/ish) and this is ONLY available IF I have the time..
Berks to Norwich 6-8 times a year Berks to Leeds 2-4 times a year Berks to North London most months Berks to Limoges France twice a year (smallish items only) Berks to Oxfordshire/Oxford city centre most days in term time
