    Hi guys,

    Does anyone know of a courier that does not only do either <2 or 2-5 kg but is more specific? I'm just thinkin that most proteins are around 2.2kg and it seems a bit much to double the rate for an extra 200gm?

    Anybody else agree/know a way round it?

    Regards

    good post.

    Not recommend use Fedex, which is very expensive.

    Hi guys im new to all this and am trying to find a delivery service. Do you know of any that will pick the items up from you and deliver from here? I am selling furniture i.e lamps, computer desks etc so some packages may be quiet heavy. I am only looking to ship in the UK not over seas. Could you recommend any services to me? Thanks for your time. Aaron.

    Saajan, thank you for this thread. I managed to save 25% on shipping prices. :thumbup: I just need to work out worldwide prices now. Lost a few sales because i couldn't find a good price.

    Questoin 1 :
    Does anyone know the best company to use for televisions, i have been using parcel2go and have been getting charged around £11 for next day delivery (on tv sizes 37 & below) but the price seems to change substantionally for the bigger TV's due to the size of box & weight etc.

    Questions 2:
    Are there any courier companies that can guarentee a collection time as if i decide to buy more from argosclearance then when collecing the pallets you need to give them a rough time of arrival or the driver could be waiting around 1-3hours before being loaded, i have a friend that owns a courier service but he still charged me £350 for 3 pallets from london to portsmouth

    Thanks for any input
    Jake
