Hey, Prague - we have relatives there! Unfortunately the machine seems to be a bit too big to fit into a Volkswagen Golf Variant, else we could have offered to rescue it on our next visit there.
If somebody feels like it's road trip time for this baby and an appointment can be made, I'm volunteering as a loading and handling assistant! There are stacks of testimonials from satisfied customers ;-)
