    Anyone know how to send something through Parcelforce to HM Forces address?

    Am trying to send something through them, everytime I try I get the error: No services are available for your chosen option, please select a different "sending your parcel" option.

    Have tried both options and both give the same error.

    Anyone know how to send it?

    Thanks!

    I think it is a problem with their site. I cannot even get passed the second page of the enquiry form.

    Got through with Firefox ok, but same as you.

    Is the parcel too big for Royal Mail?

    parcelforce, I know!

    Is there anything cheaper I can use?

    [url]www.senditnow.com[/url] is parcelforce £10.99
    when i sent items i just added the bfpo and then it said no address check postcode-so i added address manually. I am sure i have done this with senditnow. They will soon let you know if they cant take it anyway!
    They only complete the UK side of it and then it is passed to forces mail (as far as i could tell!)
    hpe this helps!

    I usually use that site, but wouldn't allow me to put hm forces, I may try it manually but I'd better phone them first to check it's ok.

    Don't need any more problems!!

    I don't think it's free, maybe some places are.

    Can't split it anyway, wish I could!

    Phoned parcelforce, they won't send it unless I open up an account.

    Could I open an account please?

    No!

    How do I send it?

    You need to call the army!

    What will they say?

    They'll tell you to contact us.

    What will you say?

    We won't send it!

    Thanks alot!!!
