Why don’t you do your own research?


Very hypocritical of you after posting many discussions about stuff you could have researched yourself? For example you last minute holiday question - why don't you do your own research?

I'd be more concerned with what courier will accept insurance on the specific contents, where generally RM / PF and UPS have the most flexible policies.

Check the courier's expectations on batteries being included / excluded / attached / separate / maximum batteries per parcel.

If you do choose Hermes, I've got a 20% off code you can use
I wouldn’t use a budget courier for something of that value especially Hermes. dailymail.co.uk/fem…tml
Don’t always go with the cheapest !

You want to go with the most reliable
I've used UPS via Packlink a few times over the past few weeks for parcels valued at £500-£1000 and have had no problems. They do free collections too at the moment.

Where's the item going to from A to B? I don't know why you'd use the cheapest courier for a shipment of them contents and value.

If it's going by road they can be sent "Not Restricted as per SP188" ,if it's air it will be a maximum of 2 per box

Well think about this numbskull, if I insure it and they lose it, I'll get my money so regardless of how good the courier service is, I'll get my dosh. Blithering morons of the new generation....

you hope you get your money, don't always allow relay on insurance as I am sure there be doing double checks if there gotta pay out more than a thousand, so think about how many loop holes Hermes might have to get out of insurances, you don't become a big company without learning a few tricks
