pack&send are a rip off but they seem to be the only people who do private freight in sa.
tnt send you to them because they only do trade freight, then pack&send give you a rip off quote and use tnt for the freight anyway.

I highly doubt that would have been Pack&Sends' fault. They still use other companies to transport stuff. The best Pack&Send in Adelaide is at Unley, the guy to talk to is Andrew, he is vey helpful. I have sent bonnets to USA and Japan as well as Aus wide that have been packed at Pack&Send with no problems.

Also for anyone looking for a private courier, I know a guy who picks the stuff up himself and delivers with no double handling. He has airbags in his ute and transports stuff as fragile as wedding cakes :shock:

Also don't always trust the Aus Post calculator, often the item costs more when you actually post it :x
