Need to get two suitcases to UK

Post by pennycsf66 » Mon 31 Jul 2017 17:59

A friend is now in a nursing home in the UK. Although her furniture won't go until her house is sold, I need to get her clothes to her. Winter is looming over there!

Does anyone know a removal company which might take a VERY small load or is anyone going to UK by car who could possibly take some stuff? Many thanks.

It doesn't sound as though she's going to have much future use for suitcases. If you could put it in a cardboard box, or two, there are any number of firms who could shift it: DHL,TNT, FEDEX, UPS....

Or even La Poste.

Sorry. I have had various offers through the PM system. That has allowed me to get what is needed back to my friend.
