    What companies are the best to send stuff?
    And the cheapest?

    I have a friend in Canada who wants one of my rugs but because they weigh 2kg shipping is about 60 quid!

    20-30 pounds would've been ok but 60 is a bit high...

    Any help please?

    We use interparcel, very reliable and good prices, they give you choices from the likes of DHL etc. even for hefty parcels.

    Hi
    I just checked with inter parcel for you as they deal with lots of different couriers and they all come out around the 60 mark.

    I've also put various options into my franking machine which I use to print postage for my parcels and Royal Mail - Small packet works out around 25 for 2kg
    thanks

    I can't post a link but search google for moneysavingexpert parcels and click the first link. Gives a few different options depending on weight/location.

    I often post parcels to Australia and regardless of the size, if they are 2kg and under, they can go by small packets post and usually cost about 20 (not sure if it would be cheaper going to Canada). I sent my niece a hobby horse for christmas, so quite a big parcel, but it still went via small packets!!! HTH.
