I do think it can be quite unreliable if its not to be signed for . It only costs a couple more TL than normal posting to have tracking! Well worth it!

Re: Courier/postal from Turkey to UK

Sorry but safest and cheapest in the same sentence does not equate

DHL using Staples as the UK pick-up point and delivered well-within 7 days at a cost of £28.95 was my last venture.

Agree ,but in my case it was only a £7 item I sent ,and as I had previously sent similar item to my Turkish Bud in Antalya ,and he received it ,i thought it would be OK . BUT no ,on 2nd occasion it did not get there .

Re: Courier/postal from Turkey to UK

Obviously it all depends on, the individual, the value of the item and how much you trust the postal system

Re: Courier/postal from Turkey to UK

For letters or packets, I use PTT, who pass them on to Royal Mail: no problems. For important documents I use UPS - expensive, but they look after them from start to finish.

The problems usually crop up where carriers pass the packet on to an agent for the final leg, so a firm that does the whole thing is best for me.

UPS FROM Turkey to UK is fantastic, but UPS INTO Turkey is usually full of problems, and never an option for me after numerous problems over the years. Unfortunately, you can´t pick who other people use to send things to you.

Re: Courier/postal from Turkey to UK

If you have a reliable friend who is going back to the U.K. ask them to take it back and post it first class when they arrive. We do this quite often for friends living in Turkey and it works fine.
