Thanks, this looks like a good shout. Did the rods arrive quickly with no issues?

I just sent off some hutchy intrigues with paisley freight. The buyer arranged it but have subsequently used them myself. £26 as I remember insured for £300

As a rod builder sending rods out regular i would rather deliver them myself on a penny farthing than use tuffnells !!!! Currently have two cases against them that will end at claims court.

Tuffnels - the green devils! Avoid at all costs - I worked with them on a professional level trying to get them to improve their service for a large UK manufacturing company - I made surprise visits to depots and saw absolute horrors. Many issues, complaints, losses and damages. I ended up binning them, which cost them a near £1m a year. Terrible company that uses low cost as its USP.

Interparcel (UPS) is the one I have used to ship rods I have sold, no problems there. Word of caution - never send rods later in the week, i.e. from Wednesday onwards. If they get sat in a depot over a weekend, God help the rods. You'll find any rod builder worth their salt will always ship on Monday or Tuesday.

Don't use Royal Mail. Got stung a few years ago when I sold some boat rods for a mate on eBay and the cost of postage was more than some rods went for!

Ive used UPS (through Interparcel or Parcel Monkey) many times with no issues. On the one occasion I went for the cheapest option of Tuffnells ( again via interparcel/Parcel Monkey) they didnít turn up to collect so I would avoid them!

Hi, For long items you can try Interparcel for courier options and prices, just enter the weight and sizes :-

https://uk.interparcel.com

Hope this helps.

Can anybody recommend a parcel delivery service to use for delivery of a fishing rod. I've been looking and most seem to have a restriction on the overall length, size etc....

I'm hoping to send the rod in a tube, 10cm dia by 190cm length..

Many thanks
