    Can't recommend one, but whatever you do, don't use City Link.

    Parcel Monkey have worked for me. They'll give you the best deal from a range, and yeah it was City Link. No problems.

    Never had issues with City Link beyond the usual. They all suck really, but they've been okay for me. Receiving deliveries more so but only because the depot is very close and they're open until 8pm. About the only one that actually understands that the vast majority of people are not in during the day and need out of office pick up!

    There are better though than them, and there are hideously worse. Parcel Farce being one of the worst.

    Just used Paisley Freight - no problems whatsoever.
    If at first you don't succeed, spend some more money on kit!

    Recently (friday) sent a frame back to china... in an idle moment, more out of boredom, I thought i'd see how it was getting on, checked the number and it had been delivered and signed for today (monday)!!

    It was about the cheapest international service I could find, they rang me up to check a few details within minutes of me booking online and were very helpful. I also had a welcome pack drop on the mat today with details of the company and a freebee mousemat.

    Overall bloody good customer service, they have national & international services: http://www.transglobal.org.uk & http://www.transglobalexpress.co.uk maybe worth getting a price from them?
    A berm? were you expecting one?

    I've just sent a car alloy wheel using wheelcourier.com; I've used them before so hopefully this time should be as smooth. They'll take anything though (other than tonnes of drugs or corpses and stuff).
