Interparcel are a booking company , not a courier , they do not choose the courier for you, you do that yourself, just dont choose hermes, tbe only problems ive ever had are with hermes, and only post RODS on mon,tue,or wed.

I thought Interparcel sub contracted out to other couriers...whoever they could get cheapest.
I have never seen one of their vans signwritten up. on my travels.
I have not sent or received anything with them though..

Never use Hermes, they failed to pick my rods up three days consecutively, I sent them TNT in the end picked up and next day delivery for around £20. A week later Hermes were still e mailing me to apologise for not collecting them even though I'd cancelled. Shambles company 😠

I've sold a number of my old rods through forums - always used Interparcel and had zero issues. I always send insured and not had problems because it's rods; doesn't cost much for the cover and I pass the cost on to the buyer anyway. Just make sure you use decent tubes and pack the rods with enough protection - never post at the end of the week, as they'll sit in depots over the weekend. Handy that they'll collect the rods from you at an agreed date/time and when delivered, you get a text to confirm safe delivery and who signed for them. Like I said, used this service a number of times and zero problems.

Find itís always best to ensure that the back wall from the letter box is at least the distance away from the rod youíre posting.

I think as soon as you make them aware that the item is a fishing rod your chances of getting insurance is out the window...
10x times further out the window if you have to claim..

Hi all, I'm looking into posting some rods I want to sell but current am finding it very expensive. Who do you use and do you bother with insuring them as I think this is what is making it so expensive. Thanks guys.
