    Where possible, and certianly any items of value, I always use the Post Office Special Delivery Guaranteed by 1pm Service. This service is handled quite differently than 'normal' post

    I have found this service first class. It is not the cheapest service but that matters not when you get first class service, fully tracked, signed for, good 's cover for loss and a very quick delivery. If I cannot use that service then I always use another Post Office/Parcelforce service

    I have NEVER had a problem with any of the Post Office/Parcelforce services and will continue to use them

    I have had experience of Yodel and would certainly not recommend them, a real nightmare

    Yup special delivery is good as you get decent insurance thrown in. Ups I like too for big fragile stuff. My hermes are ok if you pack well and it's not too heavy or fragile.

    Ive had excellent service from DPD and parcelforce...Ive aso had shoddy service from Parceforce just leaving an item at an obscure sub post office/ newsagents with no card through my door.

    Its always difficult giving blanket recommendations because it depends on your local driver and his daily schedule/mood

    I am quite wary using courier firms when selling and it wouldnt be for fragile high value items. When I do order its in the lap of the gods really but firms like Dell tend to use good enough firms with adequate insurance.

    When a turntable lid is on the way Ive got fingers crossed that the seller has packed it well and the delivery staff arent the butterfingers crew having a laugh

    I dont tend to use Yodel but some sellers insist on using them and its been generally ok for low value items if a bit slow. I think you get what you pay for and if the drivers are on pence per parcel I dont expect a first class service

    I used these people to sed two parcels to Guernsay and one to Wells in Somerset on Tuesday. They seemed sensible money offered high value insurance and seemed prompt and efficient when they collected.
