Question Send parcels from UK to Mallorca

Has anyone recently sent a parcel from the UK to Mallorca at a good rate?

I used to use Parcel2Go but they now distinguish between Spanish mainland and the Balearics and their rate to Mallorca is really high. We just need to send a box with new sofa covers, curtains etc. (IKEA in the UK is much cheaper than in Mallorca) plus a replacement perspex fridge shelf (a clumsy guest managed to break ours!).

Thanks.

We've used Sendmybag.com several times.
Excellent door to door service for sending items out to our apartment or back to the UK. A large suitcase or box weighing up to 30 kilos is about 32 one way - and the item is fully trackable en route and takes about 5 days.

Thank you. We will try them.

It seems that a box up to 20kg is 31 & up to 30kg is 32 for standard delivery with DHL.

If you do use Sendmybag.com, I think it's always worthwhile handwriting your phone number on the delivery docket which is attached to your case, just in case the delivery driver has any problems finding your location.

Thanks for the recommendation of SendMyBag.com - their service was excellent. Our box was collected on Tuesday and delivered to our Property Management company via DHL on Friday with notifications via email, on the website and via their mobile app at key stages. The whole process could was tracked so I knew that it had ended up in the right country (I've had that issue in the past!). I've used several services previously to send out boxes of leaflets but hadn't sent out personal stuff beforehand.

Highly recommended!
