Hi

So if anyone has any recommendations let me know

Cheers

I think you are talking about Interparcel, but I believe they have suspended trading for now?

Another one that has been mentioned a few times is Payperdrop.

sorry, that's the one I meant. :oops:

There has been mention of another one or two.

OP I don't know whether you've tried the search function.

Using search is a bit difficult if you don't know the name you are searching for, so no I haven't

payperdrop was the one and as they no longer seem to be trading I am now asking if anyone had any experience with any others.

always used pharos international myself.

pharos-international.co.uk/

they use u.p.s but you get it at at a special rate anywhere in mainland u.k. (about £10.50 up to 30kg)

Parcelworks on ebay I used them last week they picked (well parcelforce did) the seperates CD player up on monday around 1pm and I had a email from the seller on Wednesday around lunchtime saying the item had arrived safely so they had received it in less than 48 hours which is pretty good especially as I posted a parcel recorded delivery first class and that did'nt arrive until Thursday!!
Both dispatched with an hour of each other one takes three days to go around 60miles the other 2 days to get to germany!!
Incidentally via parcelworks with added insurance cost = £20.98
Via Parcelforce price = £68 so a big saving seeing as it still went through parcelforce anyway via an agent!

I used Interparcel only last week !! So i cant imagine they have gone under,In fact they are doing an offer of delivery by DHL for only £6.99 !!!!
