Hello

We are currently in Perth and I want to send some clothes & books to Adelaide and would like to know the cheapest way of doing this.

I remember reading once that someone sent clothes etc via train or truck I think. If this is so can someone please lead me in the right direction to do this from Perth.

Hope someone can help.

Hi Leanne
Greyhound bus freight (depot to depot or if you like door to door for an extra $9 each end) 1300 656 532 I use them all the time the big advantage is they go all over the country. They may not be the cheapest but they are reliable.

Yes Greayhound has a fantastic rate for mountain bikes (packaged in a bike box) it's a flat rate country wide (something like $65). It's certainly worth getting a quote.
Otherwise try www.smartsend.com.au they are better value at times and after that try the usual route of TNT etc.

It really depends how much stuff you are sending too, if it's only a few books and a few clothes then Aus Post satchels can work out well, although it sounds like it's a lot of stuff so a courier is probably the best way.

Hullo
What about Fastways or Couriers Please. You won't get much cheaper than them to shift cartons door to door. You might have to go to their office to deliver the freight because you'll need to buy some coupons to stick on the boxes.

Why don't YOU just hop on the phone and make a few enquiries for yourself. A lot more satisfying that way. Or is it all just TOO hard !!

I don't actually see the point in you being rude. Isn't asking questions the whole reason why forums are around?!?!
