With Mark talking about "bolting it in" I thought he was perhaps talking about a wooden box?

A Wooden box would certainly be the best thing to secure them. Probably adds a lot of weight.

I always ship mine in a wooden box.
AND I never request the pipes to be left on for the very reason you mention Joe.

Also, if I get a rack with pipes fitted and the unions snap off, or the pipes are corroded or damaged the owner cannot blame me and complain when I have to charge for new pipes.

IF the owner cannot remove the pipes then I would accept the rack and point out that new pipes would probably be needed.
ASFAIK Non of the rack suppliers will ship with the pipes just for the damage limitation.

The problem with round tubes is actually carrying the things, they tend to slip out of your hands and roll around in the van, if a "coffin" is used I cut hand holes in the side or supply rope handles for transferring.

Easy enough to make a wooden box, I do a lot of joinery (not usually on the car, even my Marcos had a steel chassis).
I'll find the rack and measure it up at the weekend.
Do you think you could arrange collection Mark? because I'm sure it would be more expensive from this end.

I also have (somewhere) a starter motor and solenoid (very grubby but known good), is that worth anything?

Cologne starter no use to me Chris, I have at least 3 good used, and at least 2 Unused Reconditioned.

It may be of use to someone else on here.

Have you sorted the window wiper sales yet?.
