We do some of our products mail order. There is no particular problem with the charcoal, as we can take that to a local shop for dispatch and the price isn't unreasonable. The problem we have at the moment is besom brooms. They are up to 2m long, but are very light; no more than about 1.5kg. I have tried a few web sites such as parcels2go and parcel hero, but the only reliable price I can get is the best part of £20 or even more. Anyone any ideas if there is a company that can transport them for a reasonable price please? Ideally pick up at a local depot, but can be picked up from home.
