But would they insure it though? I need it posting insured.
Yes
Hermes are shockingly bad as a courier service. I would avoid.

Check parcel2go. You get plenty of options and varying levels of insurance.

Certain companies will also collect from residential / place of work if you don't have / don't want to use a local drop off.

P2g explicitly have monitor listed as a banned item. So they won't touch it or insure it.
Honestly, I never knew that!!

I shipped a monitor to ROI not long ago (granted it was a crt as part of an Amstrad CPC664).

I declared what I was shipping and used parcelforce.

When you put monitor in it says it's not allowed. So there's no point lying because if it gets damaged I won't be covered.
Just checked p2go prohibited list and there's no mention of monitor whether CRT / LCD.
Take a look at Parcelmonkey, I've always used parcel2go or parcel monkey.

Both provide a huge number of options and are competitively priced.
I just did a mock up on p2go inputting computer monitor and it worked.

Put monitor in and see what it says
Ultimately, how it is packed will decide how it arrives.

Inter parcel. Note pretty much most companies don’t insure them, they are excluded in the terms.
