    I recommend Royal Mail over Parcel2Go, as we seemed to have nothing but trouble with them.

    Hello guys
    Need some advice, as never have used a courier for heavy items. Which courier would you recommend reliable and at reasonable prices?
    My parcel is about 50-55 kg. Tried to book through Parcel2go but unfortunately the only one who does its Palletforce and is kind of expensive. TNT says on their "info box" that they do do up to 50kg max and 2.4meters length but when you enter the dimensions of the parcel on their quote tool (parcel2go) nothing comes up. It's quite confusing. I spoke to customer service of parcel2go to ask them about this and they told me that although is says on their info box that max is 2.4 meters is allowed its also a Volumetric weight. Didnt quite understand what they meant by that.

    You can't get much better than DPD in my opinion.

    Yes, they can be a little more pricey than their competition but they are worth every penny for the service that they provide. An acquaintance of mine, who is in the healthcare industry, has all of this his contract logistics handled by this company - http://www.alloga-network.com/contract-logistics - worth a mention for anyone involved in that industry.

    It has been some times since my last post here, untill today, here in Indonesia, nothing has beat DHL in speed. I hate to say this, but I will never use Registered Air Mail or EMS again. They can't even keep their delivery schedule on time. That sucks.

    Fedex is pretty fast here, but their fee is just crazy high here. DHL is what I recommend.

    I send my postage to Ireland mostly via Ecoparcel. Can’t say anything bad about it and the customer experience has been very good for me so far. (Using it for several months now). And I enjoy their cash-back program!

    I just spoke to Parcelhero and customer rep told me that don't do it because fragrances are classified as prohibited items.

    Thanks Cody,


    Most carriers will accept these items but you will need to sign a dangerous goods/limited quantities agreement.

    For more information please get in touch and a member of our sales team will review your current shipping setup:

    Perfumes are classed as flammable because they contain alcohol and thus are hazardous so you'd need to go to a hazardous courier. The big boys (UPS, FedEx etc) will do it for you if you are set up as a hazardous shipper. You will need an account and it's a 3-6 month process to become an approved hazardous shipper.
