The Parcel networks, although the cheapest option, cannot take the weight of TVs. Even the new Plasma / LCD style screens come in over the cubic weight that a parcel carrier can take.
Another option is a overnight pallet service, where your TV would be strapped and shrink wrapped to a pallet and loaded, and transshipped several times before reaching you or your customer. This increases the chance of damage, and you never know for certain at what point that damage happened.
We recommend that television collection and deliveries are an item that can be co-loaded onto a vehicle. This means that the vehicle has other items on it, there is a small risk of damage from the other items, but in the case of a correctly packaged TV set, that is minimal. We have never damaged one this way yet. Depending on the style of TV, depends on whether a two man team is needed. Our vehicles are equipped with sack barrows and tail lifts, so that only a huge boxed TV set would actually need two men, the rest can be delivered by our well trained drivers.
If you have bought a Television set from ebay and require us to package it for you, we can do that easily. We use recycled packaging, and we are happy to collect and deliver those large items like TVs and white goods, that are often just collect in person. Remember second hand good are not covered by courier insurance.
So, if it needs lifting and shifting, give us a call even if it’s just for free advice 0844 884 331 or 07816 528421.
