I have 20kgs of flour to be picked up from Derbyshire. So far, I have tried a few 'brokers' such as Interparcel and MH Direct. They both work with DHL and so far everything has been a cock up.

Does any one have a recommendation for a good courier who could do this for me.

Many thanks

John

I find AJG about the best for anything heading north of Inverness. They can arrange collection from anywhere in the UK

And although I don't know what flour you are after have you tried Highland Wholefoods in Inverness? They carry a very good range of flour and are easy to deal with.

NickInTheNorth,

Thanks, I'll give them a try.

Also, thanks for your tip on Highland Whole Foods as well. The flour I use has a high content of Canadian grain, which I find the best for bread making and pizza dough. The mill I buy from in Derbyshire is one of the few where I can buy it in smaller quantities, rather than by the ton. :D

All the best

John

They are a broker for Parcel Force. Never a problem with them. Parcel force picks item up and delivers it. Just done at a fraction of the cost.
