UK Delivery Services for Private Scopes

Captain Scarlet

Recommended Posts

I have a scope for sale in the classifieds section, and I initially offered it for sale "courier-included". Delivered, it's garnered some interest. But I've had to change to "collection only" for the time being because I can't find a service that hasn't got such a thing (fragile, telescope, glass/mirrored etc) on its restricted list.

Can anyone suggest a service I can use, UK to UK (it's near London despite my sig-location).

Thanks, Magnus

I think you will have that exclusion with all couriers. The exclusion only covers damage, but if it gets lost then you are covered, well if they pay out what its worth that would be a surprise too. A personal courier service direct from you to the buyer does exist, but prohibitively expensive unless the telescope is made of gold. I have shipped telescopes (up to 8" SCT) around Europe without problem; well packed in one box, then pack well into a second strong box. Good luck with the sale.
