    Default Cheapest way to send parcel to Thailand

    Hi all, who do you use to send parcels to Thailand? I just had a quick look at parcel force and a 5kg parcel is £36 and a 10kg parcel is approx £54, I will carry on with an online search but didn't know if you had any better options.
    many thanks

    we regularly send small parcel Up to 2kgs track and signed for, by Royal Mail, (not parcel force) for £21 quickest has been 4 days delivery in Thailand. longest 16 days as it went via China??? lol usually delivery is about 5 to 8 days. can even track it when it reaches Laksi sorting office to the delivery address.

    Hi stevie57 that's the same price I got, I wanted to send a parcel weight 5-10kg parcel force are about £56 I have hunted around and FedEx,DHL,Ups etc are all pretty much the same price, there was one company that quoted 7-12 days and you had to drop the parcel to a pick up point (which happens to be a store near my house) they were £25 for maximum 10kg but I had never heard of them, I think I will use parcel force on this occasion and try the cheap one with something that's not as urgent....many thanks for your reply

    I have not sent many parcels to Thailand i think only once ,My self i would look at success rate of it getting there rather than cost and time took looks like you could save a few quid but whats the chances of it getting there .

    I regulary send 20 kg samples to SE Asia. We use Parcel2Go
    I think they basically take up the vacant spaces left by the big outfits.
    Never had a problem in 100+ deliveries over the years providing time is not of the essence.
    My wife uses them to send stuff to Thailand. Generally children's books and she hasn't complained so must be value for money.
    I wouldn't however send anything of great value to anywhere in SE Asia without insurance
    Judging others before you have met isn't a wise option.

    Not had any parcels fail to arrive in the last 4.5 years we can track in the UK and in Thailand on the Thailand post app. Even shows the parcels journey in the UK from the time we deposit at the post office to Heathrow then from Laksi to delivery. Couple of delays though Longest 16 days cos was routed via China, which was odd because we put two parcels at the same time for the same address in Thai. One arrived at sisters in BKK in 5 days the other tracking number showedit to be on a plane to China Next scan showed in Beijing Customs 6 days later. then disappeared until scanned in at Laksi 7 days later. Royal mail said "not our fault, we must have put chinese writing onthe package£ ????

    Parcel got collected today at 5pm, I waited in all bloody day as parcel force state collection between 9am-5.30pm, oh well, I suppose someone has got to be the last pick up!! I will be able to track the parcel nothing expensive in there so no problem if it got delayed, I think I will try one of the cheaper options as have been mentioned above next time. Thanks for all the help and input.
