There are websites for finding 'empty' trucks that are seeking loads, such as;- put in details of what you want, and truck owners bid for the work if they are going your way. I'd suggest you try Googling to see what other sites are available.  

Try 'LoadUp' or AnyVan'.  You describe your requirements and any company that has a few cu m to spare on their van, that is coming your way, will bid for your job!  Quite fun and I was really lucky with the company I chose and have used them several times since as they travel regularly betwen the UK & Corfu, so not a great detour to drop off in Umbria.  The 'going rate' seems to be about £135 per cu m.

Most of the ex-pats living on the Ionian coast have heard of, if not used Billy Cowie.  Personally he was an absolute Godsend for us and for a lot of our neighbours.He is the most honest, hardworking, reliable gentleman we know and would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him to anyone.  We recommended him to someone moving to Portugal and he now has the same views as we do.
