Courier for high value item

(5 Posts)

I'm trying to arrange a courier for the buggy I sold yesterday. The company I usually use haven't replied to my email so I'm having to look elsewhere.

I've just tried to book one through parcel2go and their charge is £6.50 for the courier and an extra £8 to increase the insurance + VAT on top.

Anyone know anyone that includes cover up to £200.

Also, I'd prefer one that I can drop the parcel to. I know there was a thread about that fairly recently but I looked through two pages on here and couldn't find it.

You can drop off to Collect Plus

It weighs more than 10kg and I can't see any information on the site that says whether they deal with items over 10kg. Also, I think it is over the size limit too.

collect+ only takes squareish parcels about 60cm definitely not a pushchair standard insurance is normally upto £20 occasionally £50 at £200 you will always have to pay extra, bear in mind that provided not over 20kg or longer than 150cm royal mail will ship for £22.03 including insurance upto £250 upto £500 is £23.23, though standard parcels is not signed for, check out parcelforce

Thanks. I managed to get hold of the company I usually use in the end. I hadn't realised how little courier companies cover for the contents. I've sold quite a few high value buggies over the last few years and probably wasn't covered.
