It was only when i phoned and told them to get off their bxxxxy backsides in the Office and do a physical walk about they found it.
Then because of the Brexit crap i got caned by Customs.
Good job the delared value was only half the true value. Plus other bits i didn't declare travelled as Stowaways in the treated and fumegated Wooden Crate.
Delivery cost by DHL was £420 without the Customs

I have had some brake pads sent to me (in Australia) through Pacelforce. They were lost.
In Aust we have a service called Interparcel. They are also in the UK and I think in the states as well. They are an agregator and will give you the choice of different services be it DHL or whatever. The thing is they deal with a lot of parcels and therfore have good swing with the freight companies. The prices are far cheaper than I could do as an individual without an account.
The service is first class and I have moved parts (large, such as a transaxle from the US and a transfer case from Germany) painlessly, at less cost than the sender could do it, quickly and without having them get lost.
This may sound like an ad, it's not, but they do an excellent job.
