Parcels over 30kg within Ireland

    Hello,

    I currently send parcels under 30kg with gls around ireland with GLS for around €5.

    However due to weight restrictions in Ireland, I can only send over 30kg parcels by pallet with transland group for €40.

    I can export to UK 30-50kg with GLS for about €15.

    Does anybody know any couriers that will send 30-50kgs within Ireland?

    Thanks
    Gerry

    Why don't you ask GLS if they can do over 30kg packages for your for example for 10-15 euro?

    JMC Vantrans are pretty decent at these over 30kgs but less than pallet lots.

    Thanks lads

    I'll try jmc van trans.
    I wonder have they a depot in limerick and option to book online.

    Sorry buddy GLS and most couriers will only take 30kg within Ireland.

    Thanks

    Fastway used to allow 30kg+ by placing two labels on the parcel. Its a few years since I have used them, might be worth checking.

    DPD also take 30kg+ parcels but at a different rate.

    The limit is for health and safety reasons as most couriers "last mile" are one person with van and standard trolley.

    Thanks buddy

    Will try odd as depot is nearby.
    Do you know if they have a book online function?

    Thanks
    Gerry

    That's a very good rate. Are you on big volume?
