Shipping of Used Mobile Phone


Hi folks,

Today I went through a very strange issue. Let me tell you in details, actually I have done a deal with one of E member ( @Mutant ) for my galaxy S I9000 as a swap/trade with his samsung focus. So i went to a courier offices one by one starting from trackon, blazeflash , firstflight and then DTDC and every one refused to take mobile phone by giving reason that they do not ship cellphones. In DTDC office there was one so called smart guy told me to ship it without declaring it as mobile but i refused to do it.
After all this i went to bluedart and they said that they will ship it to kolkata (mutant hometown) but the charges would be 2.8k for air shipping and 1.2k for surface shipping. WTF --____----
As this is my first deal in mobile phones in E so could anyone tell me how you guys ship cellphones to other members?

Waiting for your replies....

I've shipped a phone to another E member through DTDC Plus. Had no issues at all. Declared it and paid a some Rs300 for insurance.

Re: Shipping of Used Mobile Phone

Try other companies like TNT, Armex and first flight. To the best of my knowledge they send mobile phones and charges are also reasonable.

That's not a wise thing to do. What if they lose your parcel or something like that?? Might as well pay 100-200 bucks on insurance, declare the item and send it rather than taking a risk.
