Cheap Couriers

If I want to send a parcel 10.5kg valued at £145 who is the best to use.

I know of Parcel2Go before and they have been fine but I'm aware that their CS is not great when there is a problem.

Any good alternatives to P2G.

Cheers,

For that size and weight Royal Mail recorded would probably be the cheapest. You can't use Special Delivery because it is over 10kg, but you can use the Large Parcel service up to 20kg.

Don't think so. Recorded can only be applied to 1st and 2nd class and doesn't provide enough insurance cover.

First class for that weight would be £21.15.

With P2G I can get it fully insured for £12.84 (HDNL) or £14.09 (DHL).

Don't expect to find cheaper, just wondering if there are alternatives.

I think the max may be 10KG though, which I think your just slightly over

They look very good - would cost £9.99 fully insured.

Taking it to a shop is attractive because P2G insist on it being collected. They say that is a better service and it might be for some but it means that I would have to take a day off work and sit in all day (my employer doesn't allow collections from work).

But they only allow upto 10kg so they probably wouldn't take mine.

RM have really jacked up there prices, in 2007 I sent a PS3 (22kg) via Next Day 1pm and it was only £15, now it costs about £20 to send a parcel half the weight.
