Hi;

 

I have been using Hermes of late to send lost of parcels but they have a size restriction of 120cm. I have a parcel that it 125cm long, 44cm wide and 35cm high, it is 6.5Kg in weight.

 

What would be the cheapest method of sending this within the UK mainland.

I always use 'ParcelHero' They are excellent and find the best shipping options.

Last week I sent a parcel to Vancouver It was collected from my home at 12-30 hours and arrived in Vancouver and was delivered at 10-30 hours the next day.

Last year I sent a 970 'S' crank to a guy in Sweden. That went by ParcelHero and it was delivered within 48 hours.

Parcel2go. Use them all the time, book online, print off the manafesto and label and you opt to have it picked up from your house too.

I just tried Parcel2Go and ParcelHero, they both seemed to be comparison sites offering services from Hermes ParcelForce etc? Although the Parcelforce quote via Parcel Hero was a couple of quid cheaper than ParcelForce website direct :-)

 

Tks and have a great Christmas.
