Local package:
Ta Q Bin is not bad.

If you are sending many packages, try Maxellent. They just sent me a quote. $5/item (no restriction on size; not more than 10kg) if there are less than 10 items to be picked up. $4/item if there are 10 or more items to be picked up.
Nice and friendly people but I've yet to try them. :)

No.

How to send package via Ta Q Bin:
1. Go to: https://sg.ta-q-bin.com/cgi-bin/pickup/index.cgi
2. Fill up the form with your details.
Take note on:
(a) Do you have a waybill for the package?
(b) Delivery charge ?
3. Submit the form.
4. Receive email confirmation.
5. Wait for pick up.
6. Since you do not have the waybill to fill up in advance, they will pass you one to fill up when they pick up the package. The tracking number is on the waybill.
7. Pay them and wait for them to deliver your package.

Hope this helps!

Wah this is good! I have never arranged for a Ta q bin before... Always got to ask seller (I buy second hand books from forums) to hel me with it. :thankyou:

Take note Ta Q Bin charges by size of package, so if it's bulky, consider other couriers which do not charge by size. :D
