I've no idea but you be better sending it off Standard Parcels unless its pretty pricey and you prefer to get a signature for it. Cos buyers saying they not received and all of that bother.

was that based on exact sizes ? i need a little bigger for the box and the quote i got was alot more maybe the sizes were different or do i need to be a member to get it cheaper thanks repped

I put in 50x65x72 and 5kg, any bigger and the cost sky rockets. I'm not a member and I've used them quite a few times.

i dont think id get it in a box of that size im sure i would need a couple of cms more its crazy how much the price changes for them couple of cm suppose they need to draw the line some where think it will be best to measure the exact box and try again see what comes up, brilliant site tho thanks ill bookmark it thanks so so much for taking the time to help me :thumbsup:

Surely it's just £9.58 Standard Parcels from your local Post Office (although if it's to big for them to handle, they might ask you to take it to your main one).
