    I have a new product that I will need to start shipping out to customers towards the end of August. I am currently looking at shipping quotes and struggling because the product is a rolled mat and the length is just over 1.5m, which is the max length of parcel with many courier services. Can anyone recommend a courier who deals with long parcels?

    You could ask the couriers about manual handling. Expect higher cost.
    The mat cannot be folded for shipment?

    The OP requires the cheapest option not a dedicated vehicle and this is the reason I have tried to recommend a suitable company and not push our own company on this post
