Default Cheapest Way to Send Parcel to Germany

Hi guys,

Does anyone know of a cheap way other than the post office to send a parcel to Germany? I tried the post office but the price they have quoted is 34.00!! The parcel weighs 6kg (13lbs).

Thanks.

Royal Mails the cheapest and for 6kg
I would say thats a bargain price.
Cheapest on the websites 61
it costs 10.88 for 2kg
perhaps you could split it up into seperate
parcels.

Could you please tell me who the company is because I have a big parcel to go to Holland, not totally wrapped and packed yet, so don't know the weight yet, was thinking of splitting it all up in parcels upto 2 kg. but if this company will collect as well, brilliant. many thanks in advance

try Payperdrop on Ebay, I have never used them for overseas but their uk service is brilliant value. I've never had any problems with them either.

No problem. Their website is www.interparcel.com. You just key in the dimensions of your parcel as well as the weight and the website tells you immediately how much it will cost. You can also track your parcel as well.
