    I know couriers won't take/insure glass and TVs, but I assume LCDs are allowed? Ive not seen anything saying they aren't on the parcel2go site, just mentions glass. Anyone know for sure? Could email em but want clarification ASAP :(



    Cheers

    I wouldn't use parcel2go if you want it to get to its destination...

    Yes it's run by a 24 yr old of the back of his dad's DHL franchise. But they very often fail to collect your item then give you the run around trying to get a refund. I gave up with them after 10 failed collections. Now I use these guys.

    Lost count of the times I've used parcel2go aka DHL, success everytime hence my continuing patronship.

    Pack well and label well is the key.
