Sending your parcels can be easier than going to the Post Office .
It suddenly dawned on me that this is probably a bit of a secret kept from the general public!
At my work place we sell on eBay , Amazon & our own site. It took a few months of daily trips to the post office laden with packages , before we found out about "interparcel".
I even use it from home now as there is no minimum collection.
http://www.interparcel.com/ is such an easy service to use.
You need to weigh and measure your package, input the details & then you get a choice of couriers and costs.
Once your choice is made and paid for the package is collected from you !!
Generally cheaper than Special Delivery and they even offer a same day service.
So much easier, and 9 times out of 10 cheaper.
In roughly 6 months of using this service we have only had one delay.
I hope this will help you sellers out there.
