International Couriers

Discussion in 'Off-Topic Chat' started by I bang AND Blow!, Jul 19, 2006.

  1. I'm trying to find a reliable courier who may have ship an instrument to Brazil. I've looked at Parcelforce but their UK prices seem well above Royalmails, so I'm guessing that their price of almost £200.00 to Brazil is gonna be a bit steep as well.
    DHL appear only to deliver for businesses.
    Anyone got any suggestions?

    Be careful shipping to Brazil.

    They have many import restrictions and many goods require import licences. Also all documentation as to the origin of goods has to be not only in English but Portugese too.

    Parcelforce will be more pricey than Royalmail as Parcelforce is a courier service. The Royal mail will offer an air parcel post service which will be slower, hence cheaper.

    Other courier companies to consider include TNT and UPS.

    Other considerations are also insuring the instrument against lost & damage. All couriers have a limited liability and you will only get a small amount of the value back. The best way is to contact an insurance broker and purchase a Marine Insurance Policy which will cover the full value of the goods.

    Hope this helps, but if you require any further info please PM me.
