Have done this twice in last 5 months.
You won't get cheaper than Parcelforce, ime.
Costs about £35 iirc? £3-£4 more for extra insurance.
Ebay is supposed to have a deal to send stuff like that for £15, but complete technical failure on Ebay's part when I tried to book.

I have accounts with interlink and parcel force, I can send anything up to 30kg for £6.00. if you are local to Lincoln I can post it for You. other than that I can not suggest anyone sorry.

What are the t+c of your accounts, ThePros? What do you have to do to get such cheap rates?

lljkk , I have a business and post out daily, at peak season (which is spring, summer) I can post out up to 25/30 items a day, between 2 & 30kg, In the autumn winter it generally goes down to about 4/5. I also have a Business account with royal mail for all the smaller items.

yes but unfortunately for a 1 off parcel you will not get that price

parcel2go quotes for many companies enter weight and dimensions, over 20kg is tricky as that is max for many couriers; the absolute max is 32kg because that is the max weight a single person is allowed to lift legally as part of job so heavier than that is a 2 person or pallet job
