    Excuse me if this is the wrong forum, but I have put an old pentium II 333 pc on an auction website and haven't specified the shipping charges yet. I was hoping that someone could recommend a courier etc to use, and give me any idea of how much this sort of thing is going to cost?
    I haven't included the monitor yet, as being the heaviest part of the set, I thought it better to leave that as a separate option.
    The pc is pretty standard: keyboard, mouse...the only upgrades were a Creative Encore Dxr2 set and an i/r remote, so no real extra weight to consider.
    Thank you in advance for any replies, and mods please feel free to move this if it is in the wrong forum, just thought it might have more experienced replies here.
    Regards,
    Dean.

    Did this once with royal mail/parcel force from my village post office. It was about 3 years ago and cost about £15. Absolutely no problems in delivery - rural Gloucestershire to rural Co. Down.

    Cheers for the replies......It looks like I may do that. Been on for five days already and no bids. Oh well, wasn't expecting to get about much I suppose. Just when you think back and realise that the pc and DVD kit came to about £700 in its day, you hate to accept it's worthless. :rolleyes: Not to worry. As they say, if you don't try you never know.
