Here are some courier services that you might like to look at.

Standard delivery – this service is usually used for parcels not exceeding 50 kg in weight and is preferable for small to medium packages. The price can certainly vary based on size and weight, but this is also the most cost-effective service. If your package’s weight exceeds the limitation, then you will have to pay extra or either look for a freight service. A set delivery date can not be assured for this service, so it is better for people who do not need a rushed delivery.
