Which is the cheapest method of sending a parcel (blanket) weighing just over 2kg - there is a big price hike from ParcelForce for parcels weighing over 2kg and I can't reduce the weight to under 2kg.
Thanks.

Go to eBay there is a lot of sellers offering parcel deliveries upto around 30k for £6 ish upwards

Sometimes for some reason I have booked and the courier not arrived and then it had to be rebooked again,so if its very urgent then consider this.Most collections are about £6 upwards,usually delivered by DHL Parcel Force or similar.Usually you could buy now and have a collection the next day,eg book today and they should collect for Monday,most don't do w/e collections.

You could also send it by Royal Mail Standard Parcels at any post officeand pay extra for insurance if applicable if the parcel is for a family,I don't trust buyers,I send almost everything in the post signed for or larger items by courier then no issue of them saying not received when they have!

I always use parcel2go, find them very reasonable and reliable. I think the code 'greasey' gives 10% off as well :)




Yes they quite good too,I have used similar codes for 10%,even if you pay a few quid more least you know you booked it yourself and you get your confirmation,can pay with Paypal for the booking.

Thanks - I'll give them a go.

why not just send it by regular first class post. for a parcel 2.2kg it costs about £7 and will be there the next day. - also no maximum size limit.

I use chester post who are very reasonable. I sent a 17kg parcel that was pretty big, insured for £50 for £11. I have had bag experiences with Parcel2Go. I had a parcel delivered damaged and they didnt even reply to the numerous calls/emails that me and the sender sent to them about filing a claim. I wouldnt use them again.

which one is a good one to send 2 or 3 medium size parcels in 1 go to the same place

PayPerDrop (seller on ebay) - £5.99 next day up 31kg using DHL (a reseller - basically he arranges pickup and delivery through his account and gets a special rate which is much better than we can get if we go direct). Having said that I still havent used his services yet, but some people have reported good results on hukd.

This is a good thread where this was discussed previously: http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26394&page=4

As long as this isn't an eBay parcel (where you'd want trackable) then the cheapest option would be Royal Mail Standard Parcels.

Yes PayPerDrop are great used them 4 times, once for PC, twice for an amp once for a return,always great service.

And its tracked every step of the way and insured up to £100

Best one is MY Hermes 3.79 they collect for 30p on top you cant go wrong. JUST LEAVE IT OUTSIDE YOUR DOOR FOR THEM TO COLLECT. EASY TO ORDER AND PRINT LABEL (IMPORTANT)
