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 . 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 bigOrbital said: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 Even though I packed them that well a nuclear warhead couldn't have damaged them, but they managed it somehow! Honestly mate just avoid.
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.Orbital said: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
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 came across their site, as they're on quidco, but they weren't cheaper (you have to add VAT onto the prices..)
