Best/safest way to post a Laptop?

I'll shortly be having to post a laptop and would like some advice as to the best way to send it. I know some methods of posting don't cover damage etc. if it's a laptop or something with a hard drive that you're posting.
I can post it Royal Mail special delivery for £21 which i believe would cover it but wondered if anybody knew any cheaper/safer ways to send it, any couriers etc??
Any help most appreciated and will be repped :)

you should be able to post it on there for under a tenner i think. insurance up to £50 is free, up to £100 is a few quid, but i dont know about anymore than that!


I have used them loads of times, they are efficent and no problems!

Thanks very much, they look ok to me. I looked to see if they covered laptops but can't find any mention of what is/isn't covered. Any ideas?

Standard comp with P2GO is only £50 so make sure you get extra cover. :)

I used these not long ago to send a laptop took 3 days, and got there safe and sound, but i did write on parcel in very big letters FRAGILE GLASS in red marker.

If you have a printer this will help

In that case buy a [COLOR=red]RED PEN[/COLOR]

Just go with Royal Mail Special Delivery.

It will cost more, around £20, but it is a very good service and will cover you up to £500.
