    Thank you. :thumbsup:

    £91.82 whereas Royal Mail quotes £110.

    Think I might just put a bit more and buy a flight ticket. :thinking:

    Try interlink, our company used to use them, let me know what they are quoting you and I can probably ask one of my ex -collegues or an acq at Interlink to quote you better or probably give you a contact person's name ?

    We used to ship to Pakistan for about 85 quids, India should be about the same, is it City or a countryside

    DHL could be another option, but they might be more expensive ?

    Sent a parcel to the US earlier this week with Parcel2go (cost £40ish). Fedex picked it up Tuesday lunchtime, and it was delivered Wednesday morning :thumbsup:

    I could put a letter to my neighbour in the postbox at the bottom of the road, and it would probably take longet than that :-D

    Rang them. The lady asked about what I am sending, which was gifts, clothes, toys etc.
    Sorry we don't deliver personal items. Only business parcels, she said. Is that right or did I ring the wrong place. I did ring a 0500 number on their website. :thinking:

    Just spoke with one of the friends at old office, he has given me this number 0845 130 4099. I am sorry did not realise that they do not book orders for consumers. I would have called to get you a better price, but if they dont deliver for consumers than I thikn there will not be much point in doing so, sorry friend

    I found Interparcel really good. They give you various quotes with different companies. Go through quidco as well.

    Cargo To India, works out to be cheaper than any company, their delivery takes a about two weeks, but prices are cheaper.
