Does anyone know of a courier that doesn't consider the Kinloss area to be Highlands & Islands?

What are you needing it for, delivery or collection? What is the item, and its size/weight?

Well it is technically Morayshire, but courier companies and mail order firms are a law unto themselves. Problem is it is likely an Inverness postcode, no?
The good old post office using medium parcel could be an option, or send it now to get cheaper.

Yep it's an IV postcode. The problem is I allowed £5.50 in the price for postage. Parcel2go and senditnow both charge extra as they consider it H & I and parcelforce start at about £11.50

If you put it diagonally in a box you can get it in the medium parcel Royal Mail 2nd Class signed for covered up to £50, for £9.10.

Not much good if it is worth more, I am sure there must be better options!

Can recommend them as they take most odd shaped stuff. Good site as everything printed at home and you can drop it into an agent shop for cheaper rate.

The moronic thing is that many of the Morayshire/West Aberdeenshire deliveries come VIA Inverness.
