    Default Cheapest delivery of small items within Santiago?

    I need to deliver several items here in Santiago, and I'm looking for someone that does very cheap delivery within the area. They are very small items.

    People are used to picking things up at our office (that we closed), so I can't ask them to pay for shipping now. Unfortunately, my profit margin is very low (about USD $2.20) so I'm trying to find the cheapest possible delivery option for our clients within Santiago. I can't add the shipping to the retail cost of the item.

    Thanks again.

    You could try arranging delivery service with one of the motoconchos.

    Thanks for your reply. I was considering that as a possibility.

    Would you happen to know of one that can be trusted?

    If your moto must also pick up the money for the product make sure the client has correct change. But at 88 pesos a unit profit i hope multiple units are delivered to one person to make delivery possible with such a small profit per item.

    A one way motoconcho trip is 50 pesos so for one to come and pick the item up and then deliver it would be 100 pesos?

    See what the corner colmado will charge to act as a pickup point.

    Thanks for all the replies.

    @Belmont: I never considered finding a pickup point. I'll post a new thread with that question. Maybe somebody knows something...
