    Just to add my twopenneth - I will only use RoyalMail and/or ParcelForce. I have always had great service both as a seller and buyer - never lost a package and I think the costs are reasonable - OK I dont send uber expensive stuff abroad so am not affected by the high cost of insurance. Their international small packet service is excellent value and on low cost items the insurance is OK (just sent a Sonus cartridge to Norway and tracked, insured and signed for was about a tenner.
    They also reliably deliver to me at work (hospital) whereas couriers like City Link universally screw up - basically they cant be arsed to spend an extra 5 mins to find somewhere to park - I now enquire when I am buying which mail delivery service they use and like as not if it's not RM, FedEx or UPS I dont buy.

    Oh another reason for using RM is it supprts my local village Post Office - the ladies who run it are just so nice

    Thanks twotone, will check out Parcel Monkey. I have used Parcel2Go several times and found them great. The last time (I use them for business) was a bit pathetic but they upped the service for free to next day delivery. 10 something, Post Office 43 for the same job. Still will check out Parcel Monkey, Parcel2Go good, seem to get a lot of email crap but I haven't looked to unsubscribe yet while I see what they offer.

    parcel2go for big stuff...pay insurance to the full value of the item and tick the box which says...recipient must sign for the item....smaller inexpensive stuff...up to 50.00 the post office is a no brainer...I have had one lost item in 14 years...and then that arrived back at my address 4 months later...the post office had compensated me for the loss...I offered to pay them back and they told me to keep the compensation

    Parcel 2Go and I select MyHermes were I can. These are local people who know there job depends on you getting your parcel. I've also found that they will knock more than once and then running away. I have used other and had no problems and if it is a really small item, i.e. a fuse, then Royal Mail, signed for. However we are all entitled to use who ever we feel are best for yourself.

    There's loads of these threads about and the only thing you ever learn from them is that all parcel companies screw up sometimes. Life's a lottery, stay lucky.
