What's the best way to send a heavy pushchair?

I need to send a pushchair to a buyer within the uk. The pushchair is 13kg without packaging so with a box and padding I am going to have a 100x60x45 cm parcel that weighs around 15kg with value of £300.

Can anyone recommend the best (cheapest but reliable) way to send something like this? it doesnt have to be super speedy, a 3-5 day service would be fine.

Parcel2go only seems to come up with £50+ quotes and the only other thing that comes up elsewhere is City Link around the £28 mark but I have heard of some poor experiences with city link.

If anyone has any suggestions I'd be really grateful.

My Hermes , won't cost more than £10 & you can drop off at your local My Hermes collection point to save waiting round all day .
I have sent hundreds numerous pushchairs and never had a problem with them

I thought it was a bit strange that parcel2go didn't quote for myhermes. They usually do and I like using them.

Looking on the myhermes website it would be £13.50 but the max compensation level is £250 which would leave me £50 adrift if anything happened to the parcel. I'm not sure i would be happy taking that risk.
