    might have been an idea to check that first.
    You will need the package dimensions and weight, then take your pick of many online couriers.

    i know the dimentions will ask the weight ta has never let me down, DHL will be brokered by them.

    You fill out the form to be picked up from Kent, then put your address as delivery, just make sure you know when your seller/person you are buying from is home or present at point of pick up when you arrange

    thanks very much

    The cheap ones ( etc) will only give you a day (could be between 7am and 7pm usually collection time). Or a specific courier should be able to give you a 2 hour window but will cost more. As an ebay seller I would ask the seller what they are happy with as some people have expected to to stay in all day for a courrier which is not practical working fulltime!

    Also check the packing situation. Parcelmonkey and others will expect a box to collect (hence seller needs to pack it) or a dedicated courier ( should provide blankets/packing as part of their costs.
