Depends on dimensions and weight too, not enough information otherwise.

Cheapest I saw (guessing dimensions) was £100 using TNT.

Might be cheaper for you to go and drop it off yourself?

Best and cheapest do not go hand in hand.

Most couriers stop at insuring laptops and the like.

Have you looked at Special Delivery - I don't know if they cover laptops....
Have had a look at ParcelForce, in at just short of £55, 67x 52x 22cm 7kg.
Probably Royal Mail special delivery insured up to the value you’re seeking - will cost no more than £30
Just ran it through RM, Special Delivery, just short of £55.

That's the best option if you know someone with UNiDAYS, you get 40% off.
Thanks for that, makes a big difference.
Do check that the courier doesn't exclude laptops from insurance.

I don't think that Parcelforce will cover them. EDIT:- well they exclude the screen parcelforce.com/hel…ion

Again, thanks for heads-up, ParcelForce don't cover monitors of any size, inc. laptops, ... went with DPD in the end, not cheap, £70 odd, as it's in a big box, otherwise £65 odd, but cover monitors up-to 37" (TV's included).
Depending on how far it is i would take it there personally
Thought of that, 2.5 hours each way.
Bloody hell! When I was selling pcs and laptops back in the day I never seen a delivery charge so expensive!
I use various couriers through work everyday and can safely say that their insurance isn’t worth the paper it’s written on. If you need to claim they’ll get you jumping through hoops and try every trick in the book not to pay up, and when they do pay they’ll take a large ‘policy excess’ off.
Hoping not to have to claim :/, but yea, got stuck with available options, with all that don't cover screens.
Did you get the couriers through a company like parcel2go they get the same service at bulk prices?
Didn't, went direct.
Royal mail/parcel force might be best bet

Royal mail/parcel force might be best bet


OP already posted via DPD as Parcelforce don't compensate for screens.

Good to know , bet there is millions of pounds spent a year by consumer I'm this country paying for extra insurance when they would not be covered if it came to claiming
