    Default Cheapest post to Thailand

    Hello, we're planning on posting a 7-ish kg box (dimensions 80x60x18cm) from the UK to Thailand.

    The Parcelforce online quote is £106 (double the price of the contents!), UPS quote was £85, but when I used postagesupermarket.com the quotes are between £116-£230 for TNT, DHL etc but there's one for £25 by Landmark economy super saver. The service does say it could take up to 15 days and it's untracked but that's ok with us.

    I've never heard of them before and the price seems to good to be true compared with the rest of them, has anyone used them or anyone else cheaper the £85?

    We regularly send samples from the UK all around SE Asia. Each of our samples are 20kg.
    We use Parcel2Go who still use the big boys as the couriers. Prices are very competitive (read cheap) and in 150+ times we have used them over the past couple of years only one problem and that was to Mongolia.
    Just seen £54.00 for 8kg with 35x35x45cm with TNT into Thailand
    Price change daily as supply and demand dictates
    Worth a try?
    Judging others before you have met isn't a wise option.

    We tried all the above suggestions and they were all coming in a £85-120 to send 10kg, so we went with the original cheap option of Landmark Economy Super Saver and it was great!

    It cost £25 and all I had to do was print off the forms and drop it at my local post office. It was tracked all the way with updates online and it was delivered in exactly one week to Nakhon Phanom. It made me laugh because the guy in the PO had never heard of them and told me it would be going by land and would probably take 3 months to get there, if it got there at all.

    It depends on the size and weight you are posting and how quickly you want it to arrive.

    Passing through customs can take a week at the Thailand end. I sent an iPhone about a year ago and tracking it, it sat in customs for five days before it was delivered.

    My sister posted my legalised wedding certificate from a PO in Swansea to our address in Surin by normal air mail back in August and I still haven't received it. I have had to obtain a copy and repeat the legalisation process. My sister now has the new legalised certificate and wishes to send it to me in Surin.
    Since I don't want to go through the cost and inconvenience of repeating this process for a third time. What would be the safest and most reliable way to post this document?

    My mother sends me documents with recorded delivery service. Has to be signed for and can be tracked on the internet.
    Last letter she sent me cost around 17 pounds.

    I went top the post office and used a service that is tracked and has to be signed for. It cost £22.75 thanks RASG.

    No problem. I always track to Thailand now as a flash drive went missing a few months ago. I had to buy another and send that tracked. I post a lot to clients and it helps to have a Royal Mail PDF price list handy.
