Best way to post roll of carpet 15kg to Australia?
Tribal cheif is right as no I wouldn't do it for anyone else!
Rolled it up into a 1 metre by 35cm blob.
Now off to buy bubble wrap and then use some card from bike wheel box and…
Bloody thing! ok stop moaning and get arse in gear but first-sandwich for the nergy needed to so such a task…
Oh how I wish I could wrap mysef in it…expect cleopatra and get fat hairy bloke wearing G string…ahh! 😯Posted 8 years ago
One quote was £380 but I want it there within a week but more importantly insured!
@mudshark yep arguments but sometimes you just go the extra mile goes a long way with a lady-sometimes…
Post office £250 but insurance only up to £50? extra bubble wrap???
Thanks to everyone and spesh' uplink's help (again-STW to the rescue!).

Is £380 door to door?
Van to Depot -> Load into container -> Lorry to Container Terminal -> Load Vessel -> Getting to OZ it'll probably be 'transhipped' (unloaded and loaded onto a different ship) a few times so more handling costs there ->
Unload in Oz -> Lorry to Customs shed -> Unpack sort -> Van to your door
+ all of the paperwork customs clearances and fees shipping agent(s) and shiping line(s)
Sea freight isn't as easy at it may all appear, it's just not set up for stuff like that really. If you want a whole container with 1 groupage (1 type of things, 1 customs declaration as opposed to 50+ the way your carpet may end going) from a factory in china to a distrabution centre in Europe then easy and much cheaper.
World wide most shipping lines and terminals have made a major losses this last year
there's a good chance if you sent it sea freight it'd end up going via China as thats where most of the UK traffic is bound and the same for Oz too.
Courier/air freight TNT, Fedex and the likes are a little more joined up door to door put you pay for it!Posted 8 years agoodannyboyMember
burn it , post the ashes, along with a letter saying shes a controlling, phycotic nutter with a carpet fetish who needs to wise up to the real world (remember haiti, where everyones dieing in poverty!!??) and then dump her and get on with the real buisnes of the rest of your life!Plus donating the saved funds to charity!jeeezz
Rant over? was that a litle harsh?maybe ive had to much coffee today? 😯Posted 8 years ago
It's actually not carpet! but some sort of fabric I'm told for curtains but the lady who makes them is going away in 2 weeks etc so needed asap and I'm glad I'm not tripping on the dam roll in the lounge etc.
So packaged the 27kg basket' and used Parcel force and insured it for £900 and 4 day delivery cost me £315.
As a thank you she payed for my new road bike that I had on 0% finance 😀
I already donated £50 to Haiti!Posted 8 years ago
-ppl are still buying cars/bikes instead of donating the funds there!
