I've been selling a few old clubs using Hermes.
Now the second one I've sent has been "lost"

Anyone got any cost effective recommendations ?
The 120 cm length seems to be a sticking point

Yes the 120 length is the sticking point.

If it's a driver diagonal boxing is the answer.

The only time I have used parcelforce is when buyer has agreed the extra cost.

parcel2go offer a range of couriers

dpd local

Max length appear to be 2.5 M with parcel2go

120cm is about 47", so apart from a driver, should be able to get other clubs in. You may need to cut the box down to size, though.

I use Hermes for lower value stuff, and UPS or similar bought through Interparcel for others. I never pay the extra insurance, which I see as an overpriced bet on losing, and over the years and dozens of shipments UK and abroad, only ever lost one cheapish club.

Can’t really argue with the price just get the buyer to pay.

Hijacking this thread a little, does anyone know of a website/outlet where you can buy cardboard boxes suitable for posting clubs in ?
