    Tried payperparcel but luckily noticed this hidden in their terms:-

    Just tried pd4.co.uk but they dont cover damage on computers!

    just how do people post xboxs/ps3s/computers etc?

    Or maybe they dont read the T&C's

    just package it extremely well in bubble wrap and 2 boxes, make sure it can withhold any damage that could be done e.g. dropped

    i have sent xbox's with dhl and never had a problem...... problems only occur when your packing is trash

    have you looked at parcelforce? http://www.senditnow.co.uk/i have used … have you looked at parcelforce? http://www.senditnow.co.uk/i have used them a few times and excellent!


    will check now thanks :thumbsup:

    I second the [url]www.senditnow.com[/url] suggestion.

    Cheaper than royal mail (£10.99 for 2 day delivery) with parcel tracking.

    when its a cheap courier its usually £50 insurance too...and they are booked through an agent and they wont claim for you (been there)
    senditnow has been around for years £100 compensation and add extra if you need?

    just took a look at their website. Pretty awful with no obvious way to check price / book a delivery. Seems more business orientated.

    What did I say?

    I wouldn't have thought what you quoted from senditnow makes any difference, you claim from parcelforce.

    yes but senditnow is more expensive (£22.99) for £500 parcel and that condition clearly states they will NOT pay out for any damage or loss of the parcel. No idea why they have compensation even mentioned tbh. I prefer the royal mail to parcelforce too.

    thanks but I want compensation if they lose or damage the parcel. this clearly gets them out of having to pay anything! :w00t:

    but DHL T&C's clearly state that computers are not covered regardless of damage / loss / compensation cover.
