Has anyone made use of Courier guy for shipping a bike? How did it work out?

 

I'm looking at transporting a bike packed in a box from CPT to KZN.

I shipped a bike to Eastern Cape from JHB with courier guy, I boxed it up and dropped it off at the depo, cost R320 to ship it down, and took 3 days

I have an account with Aramex and I thought I was a good customer.  They've let me down a bit recently so I logged onto courier guy and used them a few times this week.  So easy and less expensive than my customer price from Aramex.

 

Log onto their website where it directs you to once off use and put it the collection point and destination with correct box measurements - instant quote

 

for clarity my parcels were not bike size

Just shipped a frame, fork, and wheels form CT to JHB is a full bike box.

 

Picked up on Wednesday and delivered on Friday. R1700 later with insurance. The insurance portion was R1000 +-

 

Not even a scratch on the box. Super happy.

+1 for Courier Guy

Used them three times in the past month to send parcels to Jhb and Durban. Quick and efficient. Super easy to book your parcel on www.xoc.co.za and get quote so you know what you' re in for. All shipments delivered within 2 business days.

Had issues with Aramex twice now in the last 12 months...

Next time I buy from a online bike shop I will make sure to check to see if they use Aramex

think the market is becoming quite saturated for small item couriers

Yup I know you're an F1 fan, but Jody is a farmer. It's Schenker...
