    He'll only let you use his account if it's an item which has been bought or sold in classifieds here.

    I've used parcel2go three times lately with high value insurance, & they've been great. I tried parcelforce 24 & they didn't turn up. I then rang them up & they said I would have to re-book. Obviously, if they miss their collection time they then don't turn up first thing the next day. They just then ignore it, and you have to ring up to re-book :mad: When I did re-book they found my previous order. After ringing off I suddenly thought I better check they have included the insurance. I rang back & they hadn't :confused: So, I had to cancel that booking & re-book again :mad: . Then after 5 mins I decided they were useless & cancelled & re-booked with parcel2go who picked it up the same day.

    AVOID sendaparcel.com

    I tried them after several parcel2go mishaps including a refused claim for a broken amp which they claimed was insufficiently packaged.. when it was in the Manufacturers shipping carton!

    Anyway, I shipped some car audio via sendaparcel.com. The package was delivered 4 days late, and when it got there it contained two snorkelling kits. Work that one out! Now you just try getting in touch with them to pursue a claim.... taken me 3 days so far without any joy.

    Hi try readyparcels.com I tried them yesterday and my parcels there already. They're pretty cheap £8.04 inc VAT and they actually use DHL or they did for my parcel anyway. Also if you've sell anything on eBay you can also download the address and details automatically.
