Parcel2go.com for large & heavy items via DHL from £7.27p (Get £5 possible quidco)

41
Found 5th Aug 2008
If you are looking to send a parcel or ebay item - i stumbled across this deal which i think is a no brainer.

Parcel2go.com send large & heavy items via DHL from as little as £6.19p + vat.

For your money you get collection from your address & delivery to any UK mainlad address within 48hrs.

But if you go via Quidco & open up a parcel2go.com account which only takes a few seconds & is free, they will credit your quidco account with £5

Best of all, there is no commitment & you don't have to put your credit card on file & can even pay via paypal

This means it will only cost you £2.27p to send your large or heavy parcel

There is no codes or vouchers for this & i don't think anyone has listed it before

Best of all the £5 is already being tracked in my Quidco account

Its just a one of though.

But picking it up for the undiscounted price seems a good bet too.

HOT

YUP, so become a New Customer then,...:whistling:

It does track - not validated yet though and did this a while ago.

Just received an email from them - if you have to send anything to China 20% discount code if it helps anyone.

Discount Code: CHINA

Another PArcel2go wheeze (if you have an ebay account).

List something like a sweaty sock on Ebay for 1p - now, add the following html code into your auction ad....












Use this URL to tell their automated auction checker of your Ebay auction number

parcel2go.com/eBa…spx

- get 5% a discount code!

Cancel your Ebay listing

So for a tiny amount of effort & small listing charge, you get 5% discount off the Parcel2Go bill.

if you regularily sell on eBay ask them for a permanent 5% code
it used to be 10% though
or copy and paste the image./html into your ebay listing and then follow on ]screen instructions.
Used them for a long time now, quite reliable and even the 2-4 day service is usually next day.
My eBay buyers think its great and its a good selling point on your listing- fast dispatch

Don't you have to send the sweaty sock in order to get your discount - surely you have to spend some money with them to get 5% off in the first place or am I missing something.

Also, for your efforts it would probably only equate to about 30p profit.

I'm just wondering how this is a deal?
I've used them for ages and this is their standard price.

this is standard price....actually they have started adding fuel surchage, so cold

VERY good deal.... hot

That depends on which Parcel2Go service you're using! For example to the Highlands & islands, they charge about £18 - therefore the 5% is worth having.

I agree the amounts aren't huge, but hey for 90 seconds works I'll take the 50p saving! (it used to be 10%, but old habits die hard!!)

But compared to other companies "offering" the same sort of service these are cheaper/more reliable and have good customer service. Using the 48 hour service they always arrived next day, and for one to Germany within 48 hours so i was impressed to say the least:thumbsup:

[url]www.parceltree.com[/url], are a bit cheaper at £6.99 for 24hrs and £6.51 for 48hrs.

If you are shipping out of the UK (i.e. Europe) [url]www.interparcel.com[/url] often have better prices.

Bloody £20 for a Northern Ireland "import" to the "UK". Rip-off merchants.

Parcel tree are £11.73. Even with the fiver it's still a rip-off. Just wish I'd known about Parcel Tree at Xmas.

they used to so reliable but word of warning. make sure you wrap your parcels well. I have made 4 claims for compensation in as many months due to them arriving smashed to pieces or broken. 2 of them I know where well packaged!! perhaps they used parcels as foot stools!

Bit of a mixed bag of comments (some good & some bad)

Bassicly all i was trying to say was :-

If you want to send a heavy or large parcel anywhere within the UK mainland & have not registered with parcel2go.com before, it should only cost you £2.27p once they pay the £5 into your Quidco

Yes i know there are cheaper companys out there, but for a one off transaction i think it's great value.

This was my 1st offer post, my parcel has just been collected by DHL & i have £5 going through my Quidco, so i have just sent a 12kg parcel for £2.27p

Weather i will use this company again remains to be seen - but for a one off offer it's great value

I used these once and had nothing but problems from them. One parcel arrived and the other got lost.

Got in touch with them on countless ocassions and got nowhere. Wouldn't trust them again!

I think I will stick with ParcelForce, faster delivery, higher compensation and cheaper from Northern Ireland.

NEVER do anything with Parcel2Go

My own experience: I bought a PowerMac for some £550 and used Parcel2Go for delivery. Their basic price included the insurance of some £100 but I paid £25 more to get the £500 coverage. They destroyed my Mac on the transit way. I required the insurance which I bought. They required me to send all documentations in a very tough deadline. I managed to do that at a high cost. They said OK, they'd arrange someone to collect the computer, after that they'd issue the insurance. Things went fine, didn't they? But here came the problem.

They asked me to choose a day (not a time) for them to come and collect the computer. I did choose and stayed at home the whole day to wait for them because they couldn't fix the time. No one came!!! And they told me nothing as if it was none of their business that I lost a working day to wait for them.

I contacted them, they just said sorry, please choose another day. They didn't even explain me why no one came. I was angry (of course) but tried to be patient and choose another day. I gave them my phone contacts. When it was about the end of the day I emailed them to have them aware of the time - no response. Finally NO ONE came again. NO explanation again. Just "please choose another day". They wouldn't bother telling me in advance even though they required all kinds of my contacts.

I did that another time and the same thing happened. I don't know why the company is still alive. I strongly believe that people working there have absolutely NO sense of honor.

The computer is still with me after nearly a year and I don't really know what to do.

Being an international student, this is definitely the very WORST experience in the UK.

Tons of posts on the net if you look .PARCEL2GO are the worst delivery company going i wouldn't use them if they were FREE

I used these once after hearing of them on mse ... had nothing but problems waited in 2 days for them to collect and kept getting told they will come before 5pm... in the end had to cancel and used parcelforce

I agree they can suck BIG time, but I find if you place your order the day before you need collection then your chances of collection success are significantly higher. I've found that asking them to collect the same day - especially near their cutoff time of 11.30am is fraught with hassle!!

I've tried the jokers and the cheapest, P4D are brilliant. Rapid email response, same day booking and collection on DHL up to 1pm. Standard parcels around £8.00 delivered through the UK, full tracking and PayPal payments.

As you'll have guessed, I sell a lot through eBay. A lot of bad experiences led me to these guys

Remember, cheapest isn't necessarily best. Think about when it goes wrong, as this is the most stressful time.

Remember, Parcel2go only act as an agent. Basically they charge less than you would pay going to a courier direct, obviously due to the business they give the courier.

They use 5 different couriers including DHL and FeDex, along with their different service offerings. Any problems are usually down to the couriers themselves and you run that risk with going to the courier direct anyway.

FWIW I've sent dozens of items via 2-3 day DHL and they've all arrived next day in one piece.

its usually worth thinking of the courier companies mentioned if your parcel is over 2kg instead of a whopping £7.20 with royal mail, a 5kg is £11.74 1st PKT recorded. (and only £36 insurance too):thumbsup:

Do Parcel2Go require your signature when picking up the parcel you wish to send from your house?

good service from these guys

I send about 100 parcels a month with p2g and I think ive had about a 98% success rate.
I never have a problem with collections either

You have to have someone at home, and yes you need to sign the dispatch papers, hope that helps
Ian:roll:

And if your going to use this shower.Make sure when you sign you also sign (unopened & unchecked) or believe me any damage or problems they don't want to know.

Cheers for this, quidco tracked and parcel collected 1 hour 15 mins after order!!! Cant fault it.

For anyone interested P4D's cheapest option (according to their site) for NI->GB = £9.89 + VAT = £11.62 (best price yet) with DHL.

Can't vouch for them though. Never used.

Guys - Just an update on Parceltree, used them twice last week and although the packages arrived safely enough (via DHL), The first collection was a day late and the 2nd Parcel which was down for A Saturday delivery did not arrive until the Monday - Not necessarily there fault but my dealings direct with Parceltree left me feeling that they were exceptionally amateurish. There is no contact number on the website for them, though the chap who runs it phoned me about my issues and gave me a mobile number for future issues. I don't think that I will need it though as price isn't everything, I think I will be going back to using p2g as at least you can get hold of someone on the phone.

All in all, the reason that these guys are this price is because the service isn't guaranteed, if you want the guarantees then you need to book with the big boys or pay £13.99 + Vat with P2G to use city link.
