I know people suggest a few names for posting bikes around the place but I need to send my toolbox which although not that big is quite weighty although it is on wheels and wondered who people could recommend as a good firm to use?

I've used them for several bikes with no problems

Dunno if there are weight or size restrictions with them though as I now use the couriers we use at work who are business couriers only

Unfortunately it will weigh more than the 30kg max for senditnow so that rules them out, any other suggestions?

I am sending a flightcase from Sheffield to London measures 670x670x740mm and weight I haven't been able to take as I haven't got everything in it yet to weigh it but it will be about 40-50Kg
