Found 9th May 2008
Wanting to send a pretty standard shaped package weighing around 10 kilos within the UK. Looking for a low price, but a recommended reliable service.

Any suggestions gratefully received.



Go through Quidco to Interparcel- they'll give you a range of options and prices for various different courier companies


There is an offer on here for parcel force.

home textiles on ebay are the cheapest i think he is £6.50 now and he uses DHL..

parcel2go isthe cheapest, I havent usedthem yet but my friend said they were very quick

When I was self employed I always used interparcel. Only ever had one problem when using UPS to America but that was sorted pretty quickly. I had to use them every day as I had a mail order business.

parcel2go failed to collect so many times that cust serv gave me 2 free-and then didnt turn up-lol-came next day after they had already gone with another courier-they are a joke in my experience!

have payperdrop gone bust?


I used ]personalshipper.com. They offer a flat rate of 7.99 aywhere in the UK for guaranteed next day deleivery. This price is without insurance - i think. The weight limit is 20kg.

I sent a standrad size box with them (high insurance value of 700 quid) and paid 11 pounds. They told me someone would collect the box between 9 and 5 and sure enough at 10 in the morning someone from City Link turned up. The delivery guys are City Link so its preety good.

They even gave me a ring in the evening (customer service) to check whether my parcel had been picked up or not. And they let you track your parcel online and even email you with status updates.

Dunno what else you would need! :thumbsup:

Thanks, guys - reputation added.

I use this ]http//ww…com service all the time as i sell lots on Feebay, they are the cheapest i've found in the uk, 1-2 day delivery only £4.95 which includes £100 insurance plus you can pay £1 extra for insurance up to £500 bargain.

Hope this helps as i've tried all the rest mentioned here and they cost way more than the one i use plus if you need extra insurance from any of them they charge a bomb.


i have used ezdelivery found via ebay, not to bad prices uses dhl and parcel force reasonable if enought and insurance is 2.00 extra for value of 100, they collected my items both times i have used them and had no problems, have had problems with royal mail reocrded items sent to me as non have turned up

Well i have the same sort of question, but which of these companies is best for delivery within the EU and the rest of the world. I sell larger items weighing around 6-10kg? Who would people recommend>?
