Thread: couriers for delivery of firearms

  1. #1

    couriers for delivery of firearms

    I will shortly be posting a moderator to a rfd and was wondering if anyone could advise me which delivery companies are prepared to transport firearms.

    Cheers

    David,

    Excuse my ignorance but why do you need to use a courier to transport a moddy?

    You can buy a moddy mail order so what is the issue?

    Does the fact that it might be proofed make it a firearm?

    Why not send it Parcel Force and call it a shooting accessory?

    As you are returning mod to R.F.D. don't think you need to do it by courier, think its only when you first purchase one if you dont
    purchase direct from supplier then must be through a R.F.D. to prove you have entitlement, Jacksons say on their web site will dispatch to R.F.D. of your choice

    As far as the Firearms Act is concerned a moderator for a firearm is a firearm in its own right - hence the need to hold it as a separate item on your FAC. Unless of course it's for an air rifle that generates less than 12 ft/lbs (which doesn't fall under the definition of a firearm requiring an FAC), in which case it's off ticket.

    Parfreight are excellent and very reasonable. I bought a combi gun recently, the dealer in North wales said 58 To deliver + vat = 68.15. My local dealer said 66 all in and Parfreight said 35+vat and gave excellent friendly service. They use TNT but get a special rate.

    Give them a ring, phone number and address here http://www.parfreight.com/
