i'd send it with a courier, you can set how much you want to insure them for , might work out cheaper too
if you go via topcashback you can earn cashback too

For a 300g parcel it's approx £5.50 for next day delivery, you only get upto £500 compensation if it's just normal next day, it's £50 compensation if it's 9am (was just ready the T&C's) If you look online at http://www.royalmail.com you'll get the prices, if you have kitchen scales,package up the parcels and then weigh them and you can find out how much they'll be before you go to the post office :)

yes but royal mail dont always get a signature. parcel2ship is one i'd recommend op, prices start from £6.49 insured up to £500.
if its high end item on ebay id use a courier to ensure you have a signature. remember the buyer can always pull a fast one if they didnt sign with the postman
Ive just used these guys to ship a record player , they got the signature and my buyer tried to claim via ebay/paypal that he hadnt received the item, emailed them both proof of signature and they closed the case

Never really noticed that about the signature. Just checked tracking for 2 SD items I received last week and both are showing as waiting for me at sorting office when I had them delivered to my door.
Thanks for heads up

your welcome hun, Royal mail are getting worse every day. When i sell stuff on ebay now if its over £15 its going with a courier, there are some really cheap good ones around, ifs its under i will chance the royal mail but only recorded delivery or international signed for, as long as theres a signature , anything overseas is via a courier now. far to many scammers on ebay these days and sellers are getting it big time, ebay/paypal dont care, so its not worth the risk
