Postage to Ireland

(4 Posts)

Hi, has anyone ever posted anything to Ireland? It's a heavy wall heater. About 50cm by 25cm and weighs about 5kg.

Never sent anything but clothes before.
Do i need a courier?
Do I just pack it well with bubble wrap and take it to the post office?
How much do you think it will cost to post?

Will hopefully make a bit more money for Christmas if it sells.Thanks.

Here in Ireland we can log on to our post office site (An Post) and work out the postage by entering the weight and size. Royal Mail probably have the same, if they can be bothered working that is!

I would put flattened cardboard around the bubble wrap as well, I have received some pretty battered packages from the UK.

witchofeastwick, I'm in Ireland too and any time I've ordered anything of that size and weight, it's come by courier and I think Royal Mail may just be prohibitively expensive. You can log on to Royal Mail and figure it out but my guess is a courier may be cheaper.

Thanks for advice. Will bundle with bubble wrap and cardboard and ring courier.
