i personaly use parcel force put the weight in and where you are sending it from and to..then it gives you some the one you want and they pick it up at your house and deliver it...the site is also good for working out postage and packaging costs..regards karl

@[email protected]!c, a link would be nice?

dfghjkl, I also have packages to send occasionaly regularly, but no scales. I pop into my local post office and weigh it, then choose the best option.

I generally look at other similar items on eBay and see what they are charging for delivery. I have only had to use an independent courier once because the item was so big I couldn't get it to the Post Office.

If this is going to be ongoing you may well find that a regular account with a local courier could be advantageous.

In October on eBay I bid and bought a compound radial saw and was pleased to be asked to pay just under £10 for carriage.

Carrier was click here . In fact it came by Parcel Force who must have an arrangement. I would use them again.
