    Thumbs up Courier Advice Please

    If I was to successfully bid on a set of 4 rims and tyres on an auction site and I was unable to collect in person does anyone know how to arrange a courier to pick them up. Any advice on which couriers are reliable and also any rough ideas on prices please. Mileage would be 200 and there would be 4 rims with tyres.

    Many Thanks,

    if not, i've used interparcle, if you use there standard service its actually gets picked up by UPS the next day, and is on a 24hr service, and its half the price than dealing direct with UPS

    Thank you all very much, I followed the link to Paisleyfreight and was very pleasantly surprised at £27.50. Can that be right or is there a mileage calculator to be factored in to that figure.
    If it IS that price to and from addresses in the same zone in mainland UK according to their website then that is fantastic.

    Do the parcels actually arrive though?

    Many Thanks

    That really is good value for money when you consider how much we pay for some things these days, mainly food items.

    Thanks for your recommendations, I have used Paisley Freight maybe 10 times over the last 4 weeks and they have been absolutely spot on. Easy to book online, collection takes place on the booked day and parcel is delivered the following day. Very impressed. Cheers.
