    Hi all,

    I need to bring some glass in from durban. Is there any courier company that can do this? or any other service that can help. Its 6 pcs of 10mm glass with the largest being 130cm x 100cm. each piece will be wrapped in cardboard and bubble wrapped.

    Thanks

    The giving me shit about the weight and dimensions. I cant believe this. The weight of the glass is around 150Kgs. So I call DHL, and the guy tells me it will have to be 3 parcels of 50 KG each. So i give him the dimensions and he works it out on 50KGS. the price he gave me was R4786.90 per parcel.. :eek: Ridiculous. So I hit gumtree and found a private guy doing a load tomorrow. Hes gonna charge me R500 bucks to my door.
