    Was lucky enough to get a dream offer from Cardiff for my subject, except I'm 5 hours away and none of my family drives. It looks like a fair solution but I have no idea how it works - or if it works.

    So, aye. Any stories about it? Is it worth it?
    Or is there an alternative?

    My experience wasn't good. My stuff was getting picked up first thing monday morning and they didn't provide labels for the cases until late on sunday... those labels had errors on them but it was too late to get them corrected as no one was in the office until the time the cases were picked up. This meant we had problems getting them delivered and it was a huge hassel. Then when they arrived the package with my bike in was totally destroyed, soaking wet, crushed and the whole thing was just held together with packing tape and my bike was damaged.

    They won't cover damage to so many things - there is a reason they're dirt cheap and you'll get what you pay for.

    Knew it was too good to be true for that kind of price. Thank you both, I'll give SendMyBag a go!
