    i have used interlink before and they was very good. They have taken stuff like windsurfboards and sails and always turned up perfect. Not sure if you need an account though.

    I use these guys at ETS online for pallet deliveries. Join as a member and get pods track and trace, they are brilliant and also cover Irish and European deliveries.

    These guys are also pretty good. You get a range of options depending on the size/weight but they only take boxes up to 50kg.
    Prices are very good - £12+VAT for up to 30kg next day is excellent

    Hello Jojo22

    What are we talking about here – What Value? What Packaging?

    In the end any 'Budget' Courier is likely to be 'hubbing' your Precious cargo – is it worth the risk?

    If were talking expensive exotica then cost out a 'no additional handling' option from some one who can offer you a Point to Point service – or hire a van and go collect them!

    If the cargo is Palletised ensure it wont be at the bottom of a pile of Pallets!!!

    Joe

    Look on eBay (no seriously). Lots of people with courier accounts 're-selling' deliver for under a tenner usually. Will include insurance and be next day delivery by a major brand (Parcelforce / UPS / CityLink).

    I don't even bother going to the post office any more for larger items - it's cheaper and more convenient to have a courier come get it!

    I buy lots of stuff from ebay and use ETS for all the goods I can't get delivered via royal mail or interlink.
    Haven't had any problems yet. Goods have always been on time and undamaged and their the cheapest by a mile so what more can i ask for!! :thumbsup:
