Hi, I bought frame in UK and I declared to find a courier to Poland, but this frame is with ISP and there's a problem with sizes, because all couriers I know have got size restrictions ( 2A + 2B + C ( C is the longest size) = max 300cm

Have you got any experiences with sending frame to another country? A specially peoples from UK.
And I don't won't pay much than 60$.


The seller have got problems with packing and say that the small pack will be danger for carbon blablabla...

You could use some of the special (UK->PL) couriers such as:

http://www.dtparcels.com/en/index.html
http://eagletransport.net.pl/

and there are many more around. Just google it.

These two have been around for ages and are quite cheap. Probably something like 20 quid per parcel. They take a bit longer to deliver but they will take just about anything. I have used Dar Trans quite a bit to send bikes/frames and never had any problems with them.

The box English Guy is using seems okay. Just use lots of bubble wrap.

If English Guy takes box to UK Post Office it will be too big for mail service. He needs to send it using Parcel Force International. Parcel Force International is available at UK Post Office. Parcel Force use weight of parcel and not size.
