Hi All

I have a problem with my Dell laptop (who hasnt ) and I have to send it back to the Dell uk for a refund where I bought it from.
Easy I thought. First checked Correo website for EMS packages which are tracked and can be insured. Went to the post office , filled out 8 (EIGHT) forms , then told to go to another desk to pay only to be told they dont offer insurance for any international postage , its worth 1200/$2000. I proceed to bang head against the nearest wall as I often have to here.

I`ve also tried Oca but they dont do international.

Any suggestions on how to send it back to the UK? Other than risk sending it without insurance, which I dont really fancy doing when the box states it contains a laptop worth $2000 (please steal me!!).

p.s i`m not in BA which makes things even more difficult.

Thanks
Paul

Thanks but no DHL office near me.

Actually I`ve rechecked the website and it looks like it should be ok to send via Correo. It states in the optional section that packages can be sent with a declared value to cover insurance with the linea Pack Plus boxes. Which is what I had. So I dont think they now what theyre talking about.

Just an update

It seems the international ems (tracked and insured) post has been discontinued since last year. So unless you live near a fedex or dhl ie buenos aires you dont have any other option.

So either I find someone who`s going to BA or its a nice 15 hour bus journey.
