    Question Couriers to use?

    *Not sure where to post this so please move if in wrong forum*

    Hi all,

    I've purchased some hardware off Ebay recently and the chap i bought it off has gone away for a couple of days.

    He's asked me to arrange a courier or wait till he gets back and he will arrange one.

    The package is 6Kg and about 4-5 foot long, about the size of them fold up spinny washing line thingies.

    So i might arrange my own courier and would like some info on the different firms out there, Dhl, parcel Farce, Blue arrow etc. Any ones you would recommend?

    Also he lives up Tyneside way and i'm in Weston-super-mare, any ideas on rough cost for that weight/distance.

    Thanks in advance.

    there all pretty much gonna be as bad or good as each other, just depends on if the driver plays cricket with the parcels when he gets to the depot. just use parcel2go as stated.

    and to add to the list anyone but PARCELFARCE. thieving dirty gits (allegedly)

    I used parcel2go and it was not too bad, they used DHL - don't know if this is the case all the time, but DHL are good from my experience of them.
