First Class ServiceThe service was fabulous from start to finish. I sent a parcel to my daughters in Australia. Paperwork was very uncomplicated, unlike previous companies that I have used. Collection was prompt and tracking available in less than 24 hours. It was picked up from my home on a Tuesday and delivered to my daughter’s house in Australia on Sunday morning. Pricing was extremely competitive. I will definitely use this company again.

Great value for moneyGreat value for money. Fast and quick delivery with detailed tracking info. All and all, I would definitely use these guys again whenever I need to.
If Carling delivered parcels they could not be better than World Wide Parcel SvsI would recommend these guys to anyone who wishes to consign a parcel or (in my case a crate weighing about 65Kg), they collect the goods, the basic charge includes insurance of the packet up to £100, if it is more there is a very reasonable additional charge up to the value of whatever is being dispatched. It is simplicity in itself to track the item whether or not it is home or abroad. I paid £82. something to send a second hand motorcycle engine to some where in mid Germany, good heavens, it cost me £22 to send a birthday present to my grandson in Manchester, about 125 miles away! (Royal Mail) and it was only a radio controlled model car, mainly plastic! By the time I had constructed a sturdy crate for the engine I couldn't even pick it up & it was not a problem, it was on the truck in about 30 seconds!
