Afternoon all, so who's gonna help me with this one. Want to send a frame to Italy, Milan exactly and not sure how to go about it. Would like it to be recorded and obviously good value for the buyer. Anyone got any ideas for this?

Go onto the Royal Mail website; you can check postage sizes/weights/costs there.
Thats how I worked out my postage costs for a recent frame sale.

AirSure is trackable to the recipient - Standard International Signed For is only tracked until it leaves the UK and then it's in the hands of whatever Post Office is in the destination country (and you never get the POD....).....oh, and Italian Mail service is dire.... :roll: :roll:

I get frames to Portugal and Germany for around £38 with parcel2go - you need to make sure the dimensions are as small as possible as with frames it's not the weight that is the problem it's the volume. I can get a frame into a box 100 x 60 x 17 approx.
