500g is a tenner recorded. Skewers should be less.

Sorry to hijack the thread but has anybody sent a bike to Spain?

I'm having no luck with Parcel2go because of the size...

it will be less than a fiver for the skewers to spain.

i have sent a few bikes to europe including spain with parcel2go, but you will need to send wheels and frame seperate, anything over 110cm seems to put parcel to go off.

you are still going to be looking at around £50 to get the two boxes shipped though

Thank you. That's where I'm going wrong then :oops:

I'll try it again tonight with the two separate boxes.

Thanks

using 12kg and 110 x 70 x 20 its coming in at 26.99 without the vat for one parcel, so it has gone up a bit. the weight is not the issue it seems

i tried using 100 x 100 x 20 and it wouldnt have it at all,

90 x 90 x 20 was £44 quid

where as 90 x 80 x 20 was again 26.99

but being creative with your packaging, and within reason the dimensions you provide to p2go you should get both boxes sent

Thank you. That's very helpful.

Ultimately I won't be paying for the postage so it depends on the prospective purchaser.
