Best/safest way to post a Laptop?

12
Found 13th Feb 2009
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.
pacelforce48 is £13.99 and has £150 cover.
Thanks guys. Need it covered for up to about £250. Forgot about that! :thumbsup:
Will check out your suggestions

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.

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.
Thanks guys. I have a Dell laptop box to post it in and a Red pen, so i'm halfway there :thumbsup:
