    Hi

    Noticed on the parcel2go website that if you include some of their html on an EBAY item, & fwd the item number to them, they will send a promotion discount code.

    Anyone got one they can share ?

    Cheers Dave

    Got to agree with DJW here.

    I've lost a Rotel 985 power amp and a Sun Ultra 10 unix workstation thanks to these jokers :mad: Even though I packed them that well a nuclear warhead couldn't have damaged them, but they managed it somehow! Honestly mate just avoid.

    Did they damage them or just lose them ? - Reason I ask is my mate sent a Peugot 206 tailgate with them, and they lost it :eek: . It was bubblewrapped and cardboarded to death, so I could not see it being damaged, but it got 'lost' in transit. How the hell do you lose something that big :confused:

    I used to use them, but now wouldn't go anywhere near them :thumbsdow

    Nah mate they broke both of them. The keyboard on the workstation and the speaker connectors on the back of the amp. I've still got the pictures of how I packed the amp up, This was after the workstation, so I thought I know I'll take some pictures just in case. Not that it made any difference, I doubt they even looked at them. I was raving when they turned my claim down, I couldn't believe how they could not see it must have been done in transit :mad:

    Were they in the original boxes/packing ? - My mate's claim for his tailgate was successful, but the assessor told him he was lucky it was lost and not damaged. Apparently if an item is not packed in the original packing as per the manufacturer then most courier's are refusing to honour claims, saying it has not been packed in the specified manner. Had the tailgate been damaged he was told he probably wouldn't have got a penny - since they lost it he got paid.

    Still can't work out how you lose a Peugot 206 tailgate :confused: - although pound to a penny somewhere there's a DHL driver with a new tailgate on his 206 :nono:

    Top Tip - Only buy things off Ebay ...... etc which have the original packing :smashin:

    Parcel2go have to be worst Delivery company around, they sent the item I sent back twice as they could not find the address... I was sending it to a school, how can anyone miss such a big building! The cheeky buggers even made me pay twice!

    I wouldn't bother with them, i've used them twice, first time the delivery took 9 days to get there and it was smashed to pieces, it was a power amp and it wouldn't even turn on when it got there, the top was hanging off it etc.....

    the second time i used them was to send some racing slick tyres, I knew that they couldn't damage them.... it took them over a week to come an pick them up, every day I have to chase them to come and get them.

    In a word USELESS!!!!

    I came across their site, as they're on quidco, but they weren't cheaper (you have to add VAT onto the prices..)

    If you register an account with Interparcel you automatically get 5% discount . I've used them about 10 times & always use the DHL Home 48 as it is only £6.99 + VAT minus 5% for up to 30kg . I've never had a problem with DHL & the 48hr service aleways seems to arrive within 24hrs instead .

    I never knew they where on Quidco though !
