Personally Ive had issues with Parcelfarce and wont use them again. In competent, late and cheeky arses on the phone.

Okay, so its gonna be expensive. Shipping stuff with weight is going to be. Ive reckonned about a tenner for a box of 3 500ml bottles of cider. Not worth it, but might be good as a pledge item for the crowdfunding.
Im open to some ideas as to pledge ideas for people who dont live in Cornwall or wont be travelling down here.

So - light to post, bit different, possibly cider related?

How about http://www.ipostparcels.com - looks to be about 5 or thereabouts - I've seen other Crowdfunder's state that there will be P&P on top of the funding

To be fair, they're only a broker, not a courier.

The best way is to order some from someone else online and see who delivers it (in one piece) Smile Nick

That tells you about the van driver that comes down your drive. Not the one who goes down your customers', tho. Perhaps the one that delivers it in many pieces but then deals with the complaint best. Smile

True, the real culprits are Trak Pak, or some idiot in the Trak Pak Process Centre.

Let's see how P2G deal with it ...

If your competitors are using them it's a good indication of overall service, though.

Joanne, thanks for the ipost linky. Ive punched in a few postcode variations, and it does depend on where you are posting to. For instnace from W'bridge to Truro is around a fiver, but W'bridge to Paisley is 7.49 Lorrainelovesplants
