I have used all the well known couriers over the years, and have had a variety of experiences. A few months ago I had to send a £10,500 piece of delicate electronic equipment for service by its manufacturer in Germany. I asked the firm which courier they used and they told me that they had been having very good experiences with DPD. I sent the item by DPD and received it back through them. Both experiences were so excellent that I have decided to adopt them as my regular choice of courier. All my later experiences have been just as good, and I particularly love the 1-hour delivery slot which is notified to you by e-mail through their online tracking. This has been meticulously adhered to. I didn't think such efficiency existed in the courier world.
