Now do parcel 2 go (www.parcel2go.com) deliver:

a) frames in frame boxes

b) bikes in bike boxes?

Just want to know anyones experiences with these pups?

I used them to send a whole bike in bike box to Andrewl in Australia. Only cost £102. Were fine from my point of view, although I did have to print off more customs slips than they said. When the courier appeared to collect, he said that's typical of parcel2go - muppets. So, mixed really I guess!

If you do go with parcel2go, make sure any boxed spare parts are securely fastened to the main frame if possible. Only used them once for a complete BMX bike - a separate labelled box of nearly £100 worth of parts went missing from the main bike box (sealed with industrial staples) which had been opened at the bottom, and it took intervention from the BBC and several months before I was compensated despite being fully insured.
