When trying to send a package anywhere in the world, cost plays a big factor. Shipping rates have gone up around the world. Australian Post now even charges people who don’t pick up their packages on time. With that being taken into consideration, you want to know the cheapest courier company.

In 2016 a test was conducted into the cost of sending a package in Australia via couriers. The base line for this test was the cost to send a package via Australian Post which cost around $13.95.


The Cheapest Option: WizMe

It was found that the cheapest option was to use WizMe. WizMe is a company that sends items from point a to point b, in fact, their slogan is: Wiz your stuff from point a to point b. The price to send the same package as the one mentioned above, was $10.69 with a small fee for a box

The Runner Up: Sendle

The same testing of services found that the runner up for cheapest courier was Sendle. Sendle charged $10.75 to send the test package. Not much more expensive and still cheaper than Australian Post.
