Default Shipment of goods within Spain

I recently bought a 2nd hand Honda rotovator that was advertised online.
It weighs approx 55kg & is 100cm x 75cm x 80cm.
It's near Barcelona & I need to ship it to Bizkaia.

Correos only deal with items up to 30kg.
DHL are useless, both their website and over the phone.

I've been quoted almost €300 to deliver it door to door but I think that's with companies that deliver as a one-off item. It'd be cheaper for me to fetch it by car, but what I really want is a company that does a "job lot" of items that would bring the cost down to around €50. Can wait a few days.
Have googled "transportes baratos españa" or similar wording, but nothing good has come up really.

Does anyone have any knowledge/experience of companies that provide such a service?
I'm sure there must be lots within Spain.
Many thanks

search with "logisticas" in the detail.

I had a new rotavator (approx 500e) delivered from Penninsula to Canarias, free of charge - they used the potential IVA as the transport cost. So, about 100e. should be much cheaper for u.

The company was TRANSAHER.

MRW or Ecoparcel usually have reasonable prices.

Thanks Rosemary.
MRW has a local branch near here; they said they only deal with "paquetes" and up to about 30kg.
I'll try Ecoparcel.

The usual companies do not ship heavy stuff, probably H&S and the logistics of a heavy load. You need a specialist company.

That is strange because they used to advertise that they would ship peoples bikes to their holiday destination. Maybe it depends on the size of the depot.

Why not rent a van go pick it up yourself? We rented one from Hertz a couple of years ago to move some furniture for our place in Spain. A quick check shows they have a large selection. See here.

Oh sorry, I just re-read your post and you said you didn't want to go get it yourself. I originally thought it you might not be able to because it wouldn't fit in your car.

Yes, it'd be an 1100km return trip in the car, in which the rotovator would fit, but then there'd be a night in a hotel, etc, which whilst enjoyable, would also add to the costs that one is inclined to hide!
