    Hi Guys

    I need to arrange a courier company to collect coral frags in Pretoria and send to cape town.

    Anyone know a company that has done this before? Will the corals have to be disclosed as live stock?

    I personally deal with ITT and prefer to only use them on a daily basis. You will have to disclose that it is LS and then they can handle the box/parcel accordingly. Why not express freight it airport to airport??

    The Courier Guy - I deal with them all the time, they can do a same day express from JHB to Cape Town. Also an overnight - early bird so they deliver before 9am. I use them on a daily basis and they are very reliable.

    The issue with LS is that any courier company will be and have issues with the item dying on them if the request is a informed one then no issues should be experienced.

    An example would be NOT to ship to anywhere overnight with a courier company in winter as the water will freeze as most movement will be at night in a van.

    If one had an option to have a courier do a same day for you in winter and a ONX in summer then all issues are gone ASLONG as the sender packages the item correctly.

    In this game it is the senders responsibility to make sure the LS is packaged well so using coolerboxes in cooler times and oxygen for longer periods.

    If the only obligation was a collection and delivery as per paid service then its easy.
