Need to send a PS3 in its box via courier, help please.

Found 29th Apr 2008
Hey, as per title.

Bought a PS3 for my cousin and it's his birthday next week, but I won't be getting to London in time so I want to send it via courier.

Anyone have any experience sending a PS3 before, ie. do you know how much it'd cost or which service I should go for?

It's boxed and ready to go.

Any help would really be appreciated!

ps. Should I consider Royal Mail Special Delivery? Is that just as good? How much do you reckon it is, wondering before I lug the thing down through the ghetto to the post office! lol

That's great. I'm really considering the "UK NEXT DAY COURIER PARCEL DELIVERY SERVICE MAX 31.5 KG" service for £9.75.

I'll order now, but can someone confirm that the PS3 meets these dimensions:

One purchase covers 1 package with a maximum weight of 31.5kg, maximum lenght of 120cms and overall size of 0.17m3 unless the premium Oversized parcel service has been purchased and then it is weight of 31.5kg, maximum lenght of 184cms and overall size of 0.2264m3.

It's in its regular PS3 box, with an extra cardboard box on the outside. So it's only about half a centimetre thicker than the normal PS3 box you buy from the shop.

I know it only weighs 6 odd kg, but can someone please confirm the dimensions for me. I'm bad with that!

Thanks
