    Paisley freight quote 31.39 for that size (I put in 10kg?)

    Have a chat with Tuffnels, they deal with what most of the delivery teams call ‘uglys’ the things outside of a small package.

    Try Shiply, they operate a driver based quote system and believe me we use them a lot for shifting some rather odd shaped (and some times heavy) objects. You have to get some quotes from drivers going your way, they then give a date and time and voilà.. delivered and cheap too.

    ParcelForce website quotes £30-35 for that size at 10kg (less if you’re a registered rewards member).

    Half pallet 3 day economy service via Palletline would be £32 to us at work. Plus the VAT to you but not £85 fo sure

    Was going to suggest parcel2go, but you’ve already covered that!

    Finally managed to get UPS to do it for £40.

    All **** evening spent pissing about with this. Great service FFS. “Customer wants choice” aye, but all we get is a minefield to try and avoid being ripped off.

    78cm x 60cm x 58cm. If the dimensions are slightly under, UPS can ship it for £19. Otherwise it’s £85!

    Anywhere else to look other than Parcel2Go and ParcelMonkey etc?
