The Courier Guy is the best I've found so far, major centres are around R55 excl Vat. Excellent service and good prices.

Heard about Courier Guy but depends on where you live if you get any feedback from them....have sent numerous emails with a reply from the CPT office after a few weeks but still no local contact details so doesn't help me much coz I can't drive over 400km to the courier to drop off ! It does still look like the best option if you look at their rates and the prepaid thing means there shouldn't be any other levies if I read correctly. The regional costs are R115 so then Aramex drop box is cheaper for those, at R99.

My experience is that Fastway are cheap but you get what you pay for - cheap service. Anyone thinking about making use of Fastway should just take a look at the reports about them on Hello peter - Fastway Couriers (South Africa) | Complaints & Compliments

I use The Courier Guy as well. Never had an issue. Stay away from Fastway, time and again they have proven to me personally that they are not up to scratch. I hear Aramex is also very good. I've come to realize that emails don't always work. Try phoning them (The Courier Guy) up directly. Head office: 010 222 2300 or speak to Riana Van Niekerk - 010 222 2321 (customer services).

Had several large parcels (15kg) to send overnight last week and did some phoning around, the one company that came out far lower with their quote & far better with their willingness to accommodate & assist was RAM Couriers. The Shipment I was sending would have cost between R3400 and over R4000 with different couriers was under R3000 with RAM ! Service GREAT,, professional and helpful !

Hi guys,

 

we have a few sellers using ParcelNinja (ParcelNinja - Cloud-based Smart Warehousing & Delivery for everyone / Behind the scenes look at how online shopping works) and service is good (the difference being is that they will pick, pack and ship for you - so you do not have to worry about holding stock).

 

This goes as far as if you have your own website, you might consider our sister-company UAfrica (302 Found) which provides a Shopify platform with direct bidorbuy integration and the usage of ParcelNinja.

Thanks qball, seems okay for major centres but regional areas are a bit pricy.

Mds ????

 

I was going to recommend MDS until one of my parcels was tampered with recently, contents partly stolen and resealed with MDS tape. They are on the ball, decent rates too

Waiting to see solution from them
