spasypaddy A proper removals company is insured and are better at transporting items that you and I.
Only if they care! Those who have received their machines from Italy will tell you a different story barring the last few in recent weeks!
The same big international courier delivers computers and hardware for a major IT company, I work for. A delivery to my address never took place on Monday. The courier claimed and showed me a proof. The person who signed for is unknown to us. Interestingly, the photo they showed as a proof had dozens of unopened packet delivered by the same company. A few enquiries later, the packet was delivered yesterday. Imagine an expensive item is broken, badly damaged or goes missing. Ours was a low risks new hardware. What if the missing delivery contains customer sensitive information?
In a nutshell, we have to rely on these guys to move items of smaller or a larger scale. Mostly it is ok; the local companies are good; they mean business; and, am not confident about the big boys. 😊
