Hi,

I was in desperately searching for a courier service to send a laptop to a remote place, which was serviceable by some courier agencies and speed post.
The options that I had, include Bluedart, DTDC and First flight. Most of the courier providers where reluctant to take laptop and some demanded a document from the excise department.

I read somewhere that one can trust speed post for sending laptop, if it is packed properly. I also read about horrifying stories of theft by courier people .
After reading all this I decided to take a chance with the government-run service and packed it with ample thermocol and bubble wrap. The speed post took a little longer but the laptop was delivered in one piece without any damage.

Will definitely recommend speed post for emergency situations like this where time is not a constraint.

PS: It all depends on how you pack the laptop as speed post uses railways to transport parcels and that too in bags.

Some tips for packing a laptop:

  • Use a carton which is almost a fit for your laptop.
  • Use ample thermocol to pack your laptop.
  • Place a thin sheet of sponge between the screen and keyboard
  • Use bubble wrap to pack the laptop along with thermocol. Put it on top of the carton too
  • Most important — Pray for its safe delivery smile

Karma for your review and voted up….

Have they asked about the parcel?
Via speedpost one can’t send electronics (as per terms) But last year i sent mobile by speed post. When speedpost officer asked me ‘whats in the box’ I said Diwali sweet. he said, if mobile then it will be rejected and reversed back to me. I said ok for it. But it still delivered wink
