Hi all,

Has anyone had any clothes delivered from the UK during their time in Corfu?

What was the service like?

I wouldn't mind shipping over a few 'home comforts'!!

Thank you in advance!

Hi
 
I looked at using a courier to save on baggage costs and the problems of manouvering cases and a wheelchair.  The Company Sendmybag looked a good option around £40 for 20-30kgs from UK to Corfu but fell down on the return option as you could only select the Express Option starting from £130 it seemed a bit over the top for a week's holiday but if you are looking at it long term maybe not so bad.

Nicky what kind of delivery service are you looking for? There are regular transports from the UK to Corfu which will happily bring anything you need. You can also arrange deliveries direct to their depots but are you looking at clothes as in ordering from mail order catalogues, (Next, Asos etc)?

Thanks for the responses everybody!

Sue - I was hoping to get some things from my home in the UK sent to Corfu as well as ordering from UK retailers/mail order.

Have you personally ordered any clothing from the UK which you would recommend? I used to shop in Next, Cotton Traders, Debenhams, etc

Hi Nickymartin,
Do you have anyone in the UK that could shop for you and then box it up to be delivered by a company like Parcel 2 Go. We have found them one of the cheapest options to use to get things here.

Thanks for the tip Elliemay - it sounds like this would work out cheaper than buying directly.

A few UK retailers do deliver to Corfu including;
Next - free delivery but doesn't say how long...
Cotton Traders - 4 day delivery (£6.95)
Marks and Spencer - 10-14 day delivery (£15)

I'm not sure on their return policies though...if it isn't the right size I might have to pay postage again to send it back!!

Hi Nicky,
Are you on facebook? There are several outlets in Corfu that have named clothes. Impressions in Ipsos, the kilo shop in Roda to name just a few.

Elliemay - I haven't got facebook - never got into it!

Thanks for the info, I will check them out - getting clothes here would remove any sizing or delivery issues!
