parcel2go.
« on: November 16, 2013, 11:17:19 AM »
Has anyone used this service to transport some stuff over to Turkey?

It would appear to say that you have to send it to a business address. Does anyone know if there is a 'pick up point'
In Fethiye or Ovacik.

It also has some questions re vat staus,and a selection of reasons for why you are sending the parcel.

Also the size of thebox and weight.
If anyone has any hints or tips or advice, I would appreciate it.
Thanks
Bernie

As my business entailed sending parcels around the world, they actually contacted me, but once I spoke to them and looked at the huge list of things they do not insure, there was no way I could have used them.   So, take a look at the list before you make a decision. Remember to go right to the bottom of this page.  I remember thinking at the time "Just what will they insure?"   >:(

I used them, 22 kilos picked up from my house, and delivered to my Calis house 5 days later, £44 excellent, couldn't fault it.

Biggest surprise the other day though... The lady in the UK who is going to have our foster dog sent me a parcel for him. Posted UPS and arrived 2 days later.
She works for them and got a discount, don't know how much she paid.
