Guy's I have purchased some F4 carbon bodywork in Northern France and I need to get it shipped to the west of scotland at a reasonable cost. The quotes from the usual suspects DHL etc is €500, the french post office will not handle large size boxes and if we split up into smaller numerous boxes it is still going to cost €500. Does anyone know of a courier service that can do this cheaper than the above>
Regards Glenn

I had same problem last year getting parts back from Italy ,the seller should be able to get lower quotes than you can for courier pick up.
I used Parcel 2 Go and sending cost was approx £30 but their pick up quote for return was something ridiculous like yours. All the other quotes I recieved were similar.

I was lucky and managed to use my brother in law's company account but it still cost £90, if the seller cant arrange in France then it seems to become take the piss pricing when arranging a pick up from outside UK or maybe it is the same in the UK also.

I have a set here I could sell for 300 plus the 500 postage.

Hope you find a solution.

The box is quite light as everything is carbon but it is unfortunately quite large and that appears to be the problem.

Go to a site called shiply. Type in the details of item and pick up/delivery details and couriers bid for the work plus have feedback for you to verify them. Little like a reverse eBay auction. I actually used this to get my f4 collected from Ireland and delivered to my door in england! Cost £110!!
