    When people sell larger itmes on ebay what courier service to you tend to use? I'm selling something quite large and am wondering whether it's worth using something other than the post office recorded delivery?

    Another Ebay delivery problem - I'm hacked off right now because I've won a sealed Space Channel 5 on Dreamcast for less than 2 quid and the guy wants 4 quid for postage!!??

    WTF?

    It cost less than 2 quid to send a 40gb ipod as recorded delivery. How the fuck can a DC game cost that much to post?

    Twats.

    people do that just in case.
    i've undercharged on delivery before and had to pay out of my own pocket.
    also there are ebay fees to pay so people add this onto the delivery charge ;)

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    I've sent big, heavy stuff through royal mail special delivery before. I think if it's bigger than the postie can handle it goes by parcelforce anyway, doesn't it?

    I guess if it's a really big item (like a piano or something) it might be easier and cheaper to use a courier, but for normal sized packages I would have thought the post office would be fine, as long as you package it properly.

    I sent an iMac G3 on that I sold on here, it was about 20kg in a BIG box, sent it to Scotland and it was 14 quid, arrived promptly and in good nick.

    Unless you want to fork out huge amounts for couriers it's either Parcel Force, UPS or DHL and the like.

    Thanks for the advice. It's just a console + games I'm selling so royal mail special delivery it is!

    /me shakes fist at KTM for taking this off topic

    edit: just spotted your useful reply as well KTM, so thanks :)
