Have an internal wood door listed on ebay, i have it as collection only but have been asked if could send it via a courier.

Does anyone know the best way/courier to use. It's a 80x32 inch door. Weighs probably 15-20kgs.

Insane people you get on ebay (not you op). Search for heavy item courier on google.

Interparcel quoted about £80 with those dimensions and that is without insurance. Packaging would be a pain, all i can see is heartache if you decided to ship

unless the door is worth £100's do you really want the hassle of sending … unless the door is worth £100's do you really want the hassle of sending for a few quid



I know what you mean, that's why i had it for "collection only". I've emailed that person back saying if he's willing to pay for a courier then might as well arrange your own, i am sure that can be done.

If he arranges a courier then you may still have to package it. Tell him no its not possible for you to incur the extra cost of securely wrapping it for transit.

Ridiculous to expect an ordinary person to post a door.

Dear Buyer,

The post office didn't have a jiffy bag large enough to fit the door in, so I have bought 20 of their largest padded envelopes and have sawed the door into 20 rectangles to fit inside the bags.

As a gesture of goodwill I have included in one of the packets a tube of Unibond wood glue.

Many thanks for your purchase.

firm i work for makes composite front doors (not the same i know) we usually deliver but for distance jobs we send via night freight
the firm wouldnt use them if they wasnt cheap (plus im only talking the odd door so its not like we'd get a cheap rate) my opinion cardboard the faces with any old crap boxes and then bubble wrap it we've have no issues with damages

tell buyer to arrange nightfrieght/courier to pick up - take photos of it and let them worry about it
