BRENTFORD, U.K. - Sept. 18, 2015 - PRLog -- As Griff Rhys Jones announces the Victorian Society’s annual most at-risk historical buildings list this week, the large and heavy items specialist courier ParcelHero says many old buildings’ period features are being destroyed: simply because people don’t realise how cheap it is to ship heavy items using a courier, rather than expensive heavy hauliers.

ParcelHero’s David Jinks says: ‘When an old  building is being demolished or remodelled many wonderful features such as old beams, elaborate timber doors and ornate fireplaces are simply broken up because people don’t realise how cheap it really is to sell items like this on eBay and ship them using a specialist courier, such as ParcelHero.’

David explains: ‘Just looking at our latest shipping heavy items list, we have recently delivered large period oak beams, beautifully carved timber doors and a number of attractive old fireplaces and surrounds. We even moved a period gazebo, as well as some delightful but undeniably large antique furniture such as rocking chairs, grand dining tables and even a commode! Without our low cost service, saving and transporting these items would have been too expensive.’

David sighs: ‘Too many people are simply destroying old period features because they think it’s too costly or too much of a hassle to move them elsewhere or sell them; but it’s no harder than sending a parcel.  Of course shipping such items would cost a lost if you were to engage a specialist heavy haulier in a dedicated same day delivery, but ParcelHero is the UK’s cheapest courier for large items because we offer an established service at a fraction of the price. We can collect same day for packages under 50kg in weight, and a shipment of up to 50kg costs from just £24.75. For heavier and larger items over 50kg or 180cm in length, you just need to give us 24 hours’ notice. And if you need a vehicle with a tail-lift, or a pallet truck for moving a pallet, just let us know.’

And David says it’s not just architectural features that can be delivered using ParcelHero’s  large and heavy items service: ‘We’ve recently delivered all sorts of interesting heavy parcels and pallet loads, ranging from a TV game show podium and the nose landing gear for a light aircraft, to gymnastic beams and a large kebab machine! And at the other end of the scale we’ve also shipped delicate Victorian jewellery and paintings, and some 100 year old vases. It’s amazing the range of valuable vintage items we ship, from the very tiny and frail, to large and heavy items!’
