I only had bad luck with couriers. Bad information flow, harsh communications, tardy, thank god everything arrived safely... I wish there was a Martin in Germany!

Anyone used this company before?, http://www.myparceldelivery.com

Some of the quotes ive got seem really reasonable, am wanting a 28" monitor delivered and the one of the quotes is, City Link can deliver it the next day for £12 +VAT surely thats to good to be true for a 30kg package??

30kg sounds light for a 28" screen... :think: More like 50kg if it's a CRT.

Could be a bug in the booking system I guess, parcel2go doesn't even give the option, definitely restricted to the above with CityLink on there.

Yep Martin is still alive and kicking. He's done 3 cab picks ups/deliveries for me this past few months. Top bloke, very flexible and can be as silent as a ninja when needed. We managed to move two cabs on and off his van at midnight on my silent street...and he managed it without waking a soul.

Top guy, top service.

Hello again :awe:

Can anyone give me a timescale of how long Martin takes to return calls?? I have left a couple of messages this week and no response yet, I have also put an ad on shiply and had no response, West Wales is clearly not adesirable delivery destination :awe:

I would not normally worry but i need to get something sorted sooner rather than later.

Cheers

Can anyone recommend a company to ship sea freight, UK > Brazil?

All the quotes I've had so far are insane, I mean really insane.

I know my work place uses db schenker in ireland to send freight to brazil, they have offices all over the uk so might be worth a shot , no idea on rates but if we use them they must be cheapish !

@Jan - $1 billion is just the shipping cost :?

@geotrig - thanks, I'll have a look. I'm not optimistic though. I think the buyer might need to look elsewhere.

its not only the shipping itself , chances are high that you will have to put it into a wodden box if you want insurance and you will also have to check the import regulations in brazil. :crazy:

I've had bad experiences with shipping into the country from overseas for equipment/machinery etc. Apart from being bloody expensive it tends to be a whole bunch of hassle :crazy:

Beware of hidden charges unless the shipping company etc have been transparent and included everything within their quote - As well as the costs quoted for the shipping itself there'll likely be dock charges for storage and decanting too. I expect the buyer would be liable for these costs though and I'm not sure how this would work in Brazil?

Worst one I had was an CAN$80k machine we shipped from Canada, it sat for a week at Grangemouth before there was any movement on it as there was a backlog and they couldn't decant the container shortly after it landed - we bore the brunt of the storage costs as well as decanting, then VAT etc on top of that - it all soon mounted up to around £18k on top of the shipping!

The dockyard's unlikely to release anything until payment's taken care of.

I understand that there's a difference between a cab & heavy machinery but I wouldn't choose to go through the entire process if I could at all help it!
