I put my Mivvs up for sale on couple of FB groups last Sunday, sold them to a chap in Holland and was getting some crazy shipping quotes apart from one from DPD (via Parcel2Go) which was £16.00....😮

They collected the parcel about 9am on weds and it was delivered by 1pm on Friday...£16.00 for a 10kg parcel, 3 day delivery to Holland....i'm gobsmacked....😀.

So if anybody is after a decent shipping option then give them a go (via Parcel2Go , it was £23.00 via the DPD website)...oh one thing to watch though, never checked before but I couldn't get any insurance to cover carbon fibre...so check the small print if you are sending any bits out that you sell in future.

Crazy how cheap it was (and how good it was), the cheapest quote from parcelforce was £110....i was sure the price I was quoted must have been a mistake but obviously not... I'll definitely use them again in future.

+1 for dpd. What I like about them (and ups) is you can get your parcels dropped off at a local shop, so you don't have to be at home for delivery.

Adam, I’ve used dpd almost exclusively for all the parts from the 3 bikes I’ve broken in the last 12 months... and yep they are spot on

However

It’s parcel c**ty you need to be wary of. On the rare occasion something goes wrong they are as useful as tits on a fish. Had an absolute nightmare with a box of stuff sent to some middle eastern country last year, dpd won’t speak to you because you booked it through parcel c**ty, parcel c**ty utterly f**king useless... amazingly it worked out in the end but it was an uncomfortable few weeks with a very valuable box missing somewhere.

If you can, book direct via dpd’s website

Yodel...don't touch 'em with a sh*tty stick. Trying to talk to a real person if you have a problem is like pulling teeth.

DPD are great,Parcelforce are the worst amongst others.
Parcelforce out of ten parcels only once did they post a card through the letter box, so I never knew if an attempt was made to deliver.
I phoned them and told them that I know that they are an equal opportunities employer, but if the driver can't climb the stairs and can't access the main access by pressing the button because he too small, he's not fit for purpose. Their tracking is abysmal.
My slipper clutch was sent on Tuesday lunch time in his lunch break through Newzeland post, the tracking was informative , got an email every time it was scanned. It arrived Friday lunchtime, unbelievable

Does this only come in one variant? I looked into this and saw an adjustable one and a 16mm one. Which one did you get as I'm getting dizzy trying to work it out Dead
