    Hello all. Can anybody recommend a courier for sending a Gibson in the UK please. I can't seem to find any that offer more than £100 insurance. Any advice is appreciated. Thank you.

    I use Direct Courier Solutions since they offer insurance in multiples of £1000 and are pretty reasonable. They are a broker / reseller and used to use UPS who I found to be very good and reliable. And it was much cheaper than going direct to UPS (assuming you don’t have a UPS account ...)

    Lately they’ve been using Interlink Express who have now been bought out by DPD and rebranded as DPD Local. I don’t like them so much: everything has been delivered fine but they’ve missed collections on a couple of occasions and had to come back the next day, which ain’t so great. Came to think of it, it’s really since the DPD buy out that they’ve gone downhill. At least in my area / experience.
