    Help!

     

    Anyone take pity on us!!!

     

    We need to courier our state sponsorship docs on thursday28th (day we get IELTS results) to get to Oz for Monday 2nd May ....

    Problem is TNT DHL etc all say for residential to business service will only get docs there on tuesday.... It will have to be business to business to make the deadline!!!! Neither of us can do it (teachers!)

     

    Anyone in Liverpool with their own business- can you help???

    Courier needs to collect docs from your business address and invoice business as well so you would need to give VAT number to courier company.....we would of course be there with docs/pay you the amount and throw something extra in !!!!

     

     

    Desperate !!!

    PLEASE HELP

    Have you tried TRANSGLOBALEXPRESS? They use all the various couriers and pass the savings on to you.

    I used them and DHL picked up thee parcel, however, price was half that of DHL quote?!

    Can't help about the business-business situation thought, sorry:(

    Just tell them yours is a business address as well - they can't know one way or the other (long reasons as to why, but we have run a business from home for the last 10 years in various places so have a bit of experience with it). Just tell them you aren't VAT registered (because you don't turn over more than £64K or something around that). Give them name of the business as 'Pixie 7' doesn't have to be Ltd or anything to be a business, do it as a private tutoring business or something if need be, but to be honest its never that involved. We've always had really really great service from FEDEX to be honest, generally they have always (apart from once) delivered packages early for us (admitedly, only to the US, never Australia), but they get our thumbs up. UPS seem to loose a lot of our packages, so wouldn't go with them.

     

    Hope that helps a bit.
