Decided to sell my pc so i can fund an upgrade.
Ihave someone who is interested in buying it but he can't collect and wants me to send it buy courier.
The thing is i have never sent anything as big as a pc and monitor before, and i'm worried that i may not package it correctly, are there couriers who would package it for you?, i live in the manchester area and near Stockport, so if anyone knows of any such couriers in these areas would be grateful if you could let me know.

cheers

Lots and lots of strong bubble wrap is probably your best bet.

Viking Direct Catalogue - Product SKU Level

Then into a strong box.

Many of these self storage companies that are springing up all around the place sell packaging materials - might be worth a look.

Don't know anyone who will do it for you though.

Try your local TV/PC shop and get a couple of
cartons from them -an indipendant may be better than a chain one - but try them all.
Bubble Wrap of course also styrene chips and plenty of it to make a cucoon with the device in the centre.
Pack monitor and unit separately and send as 2 parcels.
Then yewllow pages for any of the large carriers
DHL/CityLink/AmeX/ParcelLine - you name 'em
