Hi all, please move if there is a better topic.


I am after suggestions for the best (read best value) courier to use for the return of a relatively bulky item


(around 1m x 25cm x 25 cm and around 10 Kg)

Check out mainfreight. Don't know if they're best but they're an option.

Castle Parcels for sure. Cheapest of the lot.

 

But you would have to be in a main centre, they don't have branches in the smaller towns.

Most have websites that will quote you their price if you know the dimensions, destination, and weight.

Which is cheapest actually changes depending on many factors.

 

 

 

Best case - you work for a company that ships a lot and has a contract deal and your boss is nice enough to let you do personal stuff every so often.

Thanks to all - ended up using Fastway based on Web quote - relatively cheap and a local dropoff point around the corner.
