Similar size can vary a lot. All it needs to do is be that little bit bigger or heavier and jump up into the next category of their sizing prices

Don't use Parcelforce unless you don't mind your parcel taking nearly 3 weeks to arrive, I had two ebay UK bought items posted to me through them and it was a shock when they actually arrived weeks later.

supply and demand, with shops shut everyone was using delivery firms so prices went up...
Check out the courier places and check it’s actually covered some only cover certain items for total loss not damage. Ensure it’s insured for full value. Did you sell it on eBay? If yes be aware of scams with high value items.
£13.49 with DHL using parcelmonkey
The 55x20x26 dimension exceeds the 100cm total by 1cm and pushes the parcel into the next category.
