That will have been bent to the form of the bay, how do you know it is the same form as yours?

I've just bid a £10 to save you from anymore more 99p/£9.99 jokes

Shiply.com they're realy good... I have used them a number of times! Costed me £45 to pick up 2 eBay items on the same day... A double wardrobe from Liverpool, then stop off in Cannock to pick up a Single wardrobe... Then deliver them both to me in Birmingham - I thought tht was a good price.

Had a quote earlier for £99........seems a lot compared to what you paid and roughly the same distance .

oops sorry greg i must of missed that earlier , ........i know the size would fit the bay fine but didnt think of this, :|
Going to contact the seller and ask if made to measure or standard shop bought like i have seen on some websites
Cheers for pointing that out ..(_;)

Aren't they all made to measure, can't remember seeing off the shelf shaped ones.

I've had several done in the past and always bent them to a cardboard template. I would have thought the chances of them being transferable would be slim. Not worth the risk imo as once bent there is very little give in them.

To be honest, my 1st few quotes where high, but I rejected them with the option to say it exceeded my bugdet... They came back a few hours later with a much better price - so you may need to haggle.

Cheers greg for info ......think i am going to give it a miss tbh, if it was local would take the chance but with the cost of courier and all its a bit of a gamble ..
