    Hi Guys

    I am looking for a courier to help me deliver goods interstate. I am currently looking at Aus Post but is wondering if there are any other companies that can offer a cheaper price.

    The goods I am delivering will be inside a 280x215mm padded envelope that weighs less than 500grams.

    I need the goods to be delivered within 7 days upon dispatch.

    If anyone has any referrals, I would like to hear from you.

    Thanks

    James

    Hi Cat

    Thanks for the referral.

    I also notice your website. Are you only involved in international transports and importing?

    Cheers

    Hi James,

    We specialise in importing and exporting and we do domestic transport as well as we have to get the shipments from the port/airport to people’s door. But for the size of the items you are looking at transporting domestically Peter would be your man.

    If you are looking on transporting items in the larger size then we may be able to assist.

    If there was anything in particular you were looking for feel free to get in touch.

    Cheers

    Cat :)

    How thick is the package? A large letter through AusPost is $3 or $5.70 with registered. largest size allowable is 360 x 260 x 20

    Hi Maclean

    Unfortunately the package goes up to 6cm thick so it needs to be sent as a parcel.

    I am seeing some companies send their products at $4.99 and I am very curious on who they are using.

    Sounds like a custom e-parcel rate. Have you tried calling Australia Post and talking to them about custom rates? They don’t provide ‘discount tables’ etc so you need to talk to them about volume and stuff to get a discounted rate.

    Yes, I have just contacted them this morning and waiting for a reply from one of their sales representative to call back, but cheers for advice.
