Anyone heard of or used Interparcel before?

I used them today and within the hour someone from DHL came to collect the parcel. Hence my discovery of the 5% discount. Oh, and obviously they're on Quidco.

Thanks for this kallisti

I've used interparcel before, good service

Interparcel prices do not appear to be particularly competitive. For DHL use Parcels4Delivery or for UPS use Pharos International. Both are totally reputable and reliable. I just entered a sample parcel into both Interparcel and P4Del's sites and Interparcel quoted £12+ and P4Del £8+ ( both next day delivery ). Just thought I'd share that with you.

For what it's worth, this vaguely seems to be the case - just did a rough quote for the 15kg parcel to Australia I just sent via interparcel and parcels4delivery and pharos. The three prices were 94, 80 and 90 - so parcels4delivery came out cheapest. However, no quidco.. So, assuming that it's

interparcel: 94 - 5% this code = 89.3 - 10% quidco = about 80.40
parcels4delivery: 80 (don't know any discounts)
pharos: 90 (don't know any discounts)

So - after that lot, pretty competitive, AND using a named brand of courier, as a very irregular courier user, it was nice to see the DHL man take the things away (and to type in a number an hour later on the DHL site and discover that it had arrived in a Reading depot)

P4Del = Parcels4Delivery

There is a 5% code for Parcels4delivery on HotUKDeals ( I believe the code is "yorkie" ), so that would be around £76 and no waiting around for the not always reliable Quidco repayments. But, as always, its whatever everyone's happy with.

I was only passing on my personal experiences of these other companies as I've not used Interparcel. Without a doubt, the delivery service will be identical, but how do they deal with situations when things go wrong? There are other cheap courier agents out there ( eg Parcels2go ) who's customer service is, quite frankly, appauling when things go wrong, so, because I have had only good experiences ( both in terms of delivery and customer service ) with the 2 afore mentioned companies I feel it only right to recommend their services to others.

I have no axe to grind with Interparcel and they may well provide an excellent service, but I was just drawing attention to the fact that the prices quoted were not the best.

I have used both Interparcel and P4D.
Interparcel are one of the best for Overseas items but P4D are the cheaper of the two for UK deliveries.
Yorkie code gives you 5% off P4D.

Cheers for that info Dino. Next time I have delivery for overseas, I may just give the Interparcels chappies a try. I normally use Pharos for international deliveries, so it would be interesting to see how they compare.

parpster, I was just totting up the actual costs for my own info, I'll probably do a quick scan of all the above choices next time I'm using a courier (which at this rate of use should be some time around 2039)

Cheers.
