    I've heard good things about

    parcel2go.com/

    Might be worth a try. Never used them myself as i dont send many parcels, but worth a look!

    A quick look suggests that it would be approx £6.39 + VAT (actually i think the sizes you have are over the maximum allowed, however try a 'quick quote' im sure the price will be reasonable )

    another edit: 5% discount for EBay sellers, just paste the html code given on parcel2go.com/eBa…spx ...may be of use to you or somebody

    £6.39 + VAT is the basic price for Economy delivery. It goes up with size and weight.

    Unfortunately the package it too big to be sent this way, and the cheapest parcel2go offer is £88 for Pallet Delivery

    I've sent/received fairly large parcels through these guys.

    I notice the site seems to be under maintenance at the moment, don't know if it's a short term thing.

    Post me happy?

    Sounds like a competitor to royal mail from norwich union :O

    Not sure where you are but we had a parcel delivered at work by Fastway Couriers who gave us a flyer that says they do parcels up to 25kg for £4.95 nationally and £2.95 locally.

    Has to be said we haven't used them to deliver so can't vouch for how great they are plus they are a franchise so will differ from area to area I suppose but on the plus side the parcel they brought us was intact so take from that what you will.

    Seems very cheap, make sure you read T's & c's but all i can see is the below statement.

    4. Maximum sizes and weights
    4.1
    The size of each Parcel must not exceed 3 metres length and girth (measured around its thickest part) combined and 1.5 metres for the greatest dimension. Girth should be calculated as twice the height of the Parcel plus twice the width of the parcel measured around its thickest part.
    4.2
    Individual Parcels must not exceed 30kg.

    I've used that many times,

    parcel to go is a terrible company, I sent a laptop once, it got mashed by the time it went to the other person!
