    Courier needed!!!

    Hi folks, was wondering if anyone new of a company that would only deliver a parcel on receipt of another?

    Was looking to swap a mobile with another user here and obviously want to keep each other right! I know when I have had a faulty mobile with my phone company, a courier would come and swap the new handset for the old one. Does anyone know if there is a similar service for private use???

    I would have thought if you followed all the FS/FT rules and guidelines you would trust the other person enough to send it anyway.

    How does that make it safer?? If seller wanted to scam you they could just give courier faulty phone or parcel with rubbish in it

    I was just pointing out that using couriers the way OP wanted was liable to scamming as well. Sorry for being helpful and warning you of faults with your idea

    If you have all the details of both packages, I would have thought any … If you have all the details of both packages, I would have thought any company would do it as it is obviously cheaper for them to only go to the house once, to deliver and pick up at the same time. :thumbsup:But knowing some people's stupidity, I wouldn't be serprised if they made two visits. :w00t:

    The courier who delivered you replacement phone would of spent all day … The courier who delivered you replacement phone would of spent all day doing the same thing for the same phone supplier, so cost per phone would of been fairly lowYour talking about a dedicated courier to wait and return on just one phone, don't know the rate now but it used to be full price one way and ½ price return so even at a low guess of £1 a mile (forget it if your in london) i hope the phones are solid gold to make it worthwhile



    Haha, they are not! Guess I'll just send and hope! I can claim insurance if it goes south I suppose!
