Courier recommendation please

Hello All

Who is everyone using for couriers these days please ?

I need a set of wheels collecting from down south and delivering to me.

I can get them put on a pallet.

Cheers

Rob

Circa 30 for four

I use senditnow for bigger stuff up to 30k around 13 collected from you no messing with printers fully tracked it's actually Royal Mail. I have done wheels with them in 2 separate parcels i.e. 2x2 wrapped in bin liners and cling film to hold them together

Thanks for the recommendations everyone.

I'll certainly look at them for future use.

I booked Speedshift last night, I've used them before.

52 for a full sized pallet, irrespective of what's on it.

I'm happy enough with that - the rear wheels are 10x15 so quite big and all four are ally, so don't want them knocking around.

Thanks again.

Rob

At work we've used UPS for national and international shipments for a number of years. Always been reliable and there's a tracking service online too. Don't know if you need to have an account with them to use them though.

Out of interest, where are the wheels located?

OK - too far for me to get to (could've UPS'd them through work otherwise).

Another +1 for Paisley Freight. I've been wrapping my wheels/tyres in pairs to send them. As long as they don't weigh over 30kg per package, it's seems to be OK.

Would've been happy to do it!

Another LCB user helped get some ebay purchase wheelchair wheels to me a few years ago and it was a god send at the time.
