But if something goes wrong they're utter rubbish. I've found parcel monkey just as cheap with better service! Alternatively anyvan is pretty good if your looking to get something delicate moved. More expensive and price depends on location but I've used it to move boats sellers wouldn't posts.

You post a request of what you want shipped, and when and where and carriers then bid for the job
It works very well

My Hermes are okay up to about 5kg and packages under a meter. Beyond that they become uncompetitive compared with other couriers.

Just used parcel monkey to send a roll cage up to the North East. Good price for a fairly heavy and bulky item.
