    Default Posting a Bumper

    I have to send a front bumper 200 miles Which company would accept such a large heavy item to post.Also how the hell would i wrap/protect it to stop it getting to scratched/damaged in transit
    I've not posted anything this large before and driving 200 miles myself is a no go
    Cheeeeeeeeers!!

    Have a look at www.parcel2go.com - basically a division of DHL and good prices.

    I have used these in the past very good but sometimes take a while before they can collect it from you

    Is that still the case? I know a while back they had a bit of a drop in their reliability/service etc. as they had grown quicker than they had expected. Thought they had got it all sorted now? - or not?

    yep, Parcel2go are good. I use them for sending almost all me ebay stuff. Iv'e found that if you order a collection for the same day (do it around 10:00am) and order the 2-4 day delivery they nearly always mark it as a next day shipment.

    iI'll be honest Duncan I don't use them any more as I have access to the TNT network at lets say a very good discount!! but when I did it always got there but as said slow to collect but they always had an upto date tracking system which is always a good thing
