    Just wondering which company everyone uses when sending out their goods. Of course it all depends on the location of the goods, and the goods themselves. But for general posting within the UK on items too large for your standard trip to the local post office, which company do you use?

    Parcelforce seem alright at the minute, I've not used anyone else and only used them a few times. Your opinions on other companies would be appreciated!

    I find myHermes to be the best/cheapest service, along with using Interparcel for parcel postage price comparisions.

    I always use Citylink via ParcelMonkey for anything that doesn't go by Royal Mail.

    CiyLink above all other couriers.

    They go the extra mile unlike many other couriers.

    OK, whats your best City Link prices ? As I'm in middle of a deal whereby I may well be able to offer a cheaper service !

    the current cheapest is Parcel Monkey at £7.49, then £7.99 with P4D, then £8.80 with Interparcel

    I'll be looking at £7 + VAT - cheaper than them all ! Only for TWF members though ! Keep watching this space

    If you'd be interested, leave a 'Like' below - and i may be in touch !

    if you send in high numbers, you can go direct and get it less, but this will be for small numbers on a had-hoc basis - ideal for smaller seller, or those with the 'odd' large parcel
