I have used Parcel2GO.com on several occasions and they are an efficient outfit and will pick up at your door.
They sent me an email today advertising their whistl mail service at 38pence a letter for 100g size, I am pretty sure they are advertising this on the strength of the proposed Christmas strike by Royal Snail and as we send around 70 cards will investigate further Whistl It may be of interest to others.

I’ve always found them to give excellent service and much cheaper than Royal Mail.

Thanks Rich, I've never heard of them but with the dreaded "C" word coming up soon it seems to be a great idea.


Here for a good time not a long time!!

I get a number of business letters that have been sent via Whistl.
Not sure that will help with the CWU planned strikes though, as all the letters are delivered to me via Royal Mail postie...

I realised that Graham, I just thought I'd take my Christmas post away from Royal Snail as a mini protest against the striking mob grin2
The rail lot are at it again on the run up to Christmas and New Year as well the greedy lot coffee

Quite a lot of the business post come via them now cost and a result of the previous strikes I guess.
