Suggestion for decent couriers


this is my first posting to HUKD after months of lurking. You guys have saved me loads of money through the various deals you post here - thanks to you all!!

Ok to the subject in hand. I have just started a small business creating animal sculptures for people and I need to find a decent courier to send the completed pieces by. The problem I am finding is that most couriers won't cover things like ceramics for accidental damage duirng transit, so if things get damaged I will have to remake and replace for the client out of my own pocket. Everything will be really well packaged and indicated that it is fragile, but I just know at sometime something is going to get damaged.

Can anyone please suggest a decent reasonably priced courier who will provide me with an insured delivery?



P.S. I hope I put this in the right section



If your a business don;t use the above..get yourself an account...I have accounts with DHL and Citylink although only ever use DHL....they charge about £6 per parcel but gets cheaper when you use them more, you need to have delivered a min of 10 parcels a year to open an account, they even provide all the stationary etc...Ring DHL and they'll send a rep to your house to discuss it with you


Oh and I doubt very much you'll find cover for ceramics...just spend at decent amount of money on decent packaging


any luck with the courier


I think that came from my random senditnow post i did.
Yeah senditnow and parceltree seem good to me!!

Not as yet - seems like Zootaga was right about not finding cover for ceramics. I'll probably take you suggestion and try ezdelivery - I sent them an email asking about it - just waiting for a response...
