That is couriers for small parcels (<1kg), not van drivers of diminutive stature.

Any recommendations?

What do you wish for? Home collection, cheap prices, speed, insurance or reliability?

Parcel2go.com will offer you a range.

I'm guessing that the higher priority is for the delivery to be made? In which case don't, under any circumstances, go with Yodel.

I use Collect+ (I think it's called) from Londis and other outlets.

Parcel2go gives you all of those options, plus others. It's like a wossname. Screenscraper.

We've used P2Go a few times - I concur with Nick's recommendation.

Sometimes they offer an 'own brand' service, beware, this may be with Yodel.

Most of them seem to be starting at a little over £3, except the ones that deliver as far as the local shop for collection.

Mail order oil possibly not such a good idea.
