There are a large number of options when choosing carriers and their delivery options. In general there are three selection criteria. (a) How fast? (b) What weight? and (c) What size? (a) varies between 24hrs and 6 weeks. (b) Under the description of goods for 'carriage' and NOT freight, weight is limited to 30kgms and sometimes 15Kgms per package.
For International despatches QTA limit the 'Total' package weight and size to comply with International Postal Service recommendations, packages of 2Kgms maximum weight and approximate volume 22L This service provides a practical solution to worldwide despatches at a reasonable cost.
Goods may be despatched via basic Air Mail, the least expensive option, to a tracked service for which an additional charge, (variable), approx £5 is payable if using a UK Postal service. Tracked services offer a degree of security and are recommended for the more expensive items. The 'total' carrier / despatch costs are determined by the value of compensation claimable in the event of loss or damage.
Note some items such as Bitumastic Sheet are very heavy and not really cost effective for International despatch.
At QTA we try and match the best carriage option based upon destination, cost, speed of service, reliability and product weight / product volume.
Below is a selection, (rough guide), periodically updated, of typical carriage charges for a number of destinations.
This will enable you to arrive at a rough carriage cost for your goods. All shipping / despatch costs are provided by QUOTE
