I'm just about to list my bike on eBay and was wondering if anyone could recommend the best way of delivering to mainland UK. There seems to be a number of courier companies out there but I've no idea which one to go with.

Any recommendations greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys!

Citylink sounds nice and cheap but when I input the dimensions to the Interparcel website I can't seem to get the quote below £50

How small would I need to pack it down to in order to send it for £10.56 do you know?

I've looked at Senditnow too, but their maximum dimensions seem a bit tight too...or is this as small as I'd need to pack it down to?

"In terms of dimension, the longest side must be no more than 1.5m, and if you take the total measurement all the way round the thickest part of your parcel (we call this the girth) and add to the longest side, this must total no more than 3m."

Senditnow are more bothered about weight besides 30kg will cover most bikes.
