    Who do people use to post wheels?
    I got carried away in the superstar 66% giveaway and ordered i19 instead of i29 rims so need to return the big but light box that DPD delivered yesterday.
    Who’s best for this?

    Cheers

    I’d use parcel monkey to search and just pick the cheapest that includes enough compensation cover.

    I’ve had so few problems with couriers that I don’t worry until it’s something particularly delicate / awkward / large.

    Sometimes Parcelforce / RM win as it’s the easiest drop off for me.

    I’ve used Paisley Freight for wheels numerous times. AndrewH will no doubt be along shortly saying how bad they are though.

    https://www.paisleyfreight.com/ – £16.99
    No point risking anyone else imo. I tried and regretted it!

    For big stuff like frames and wheels I usually use Parcelforce collection.

    Paisley freight are just a booking agent I think, it goes with whichever courier they use.

    Parcelforce generally for me when I’ve sent wheels out. Usually pretty cheap and will collect and supply labels.

    +1 parcelforce via http://www.senditnow.com – bit cheaper than direct through parcelforce usually.

    Best price I got recently from a known entity was Parcelforce. Print labels at home and drop off at local post office was cheaper than collection and you don’t have to wait in. Even cheaper if you have a local depot you can drop off at.

    Butler’s day off, but… If you’re offering @bikerevivesheffield

    in the end I’ve paid £12.50 for parcelforce 24 through senditnow.com

    just got to take the box to a post office tomorrow

    easier and cheaper than expected.
    (hopefully) the right wheels arriving tomorrow too
