Parcel2go and then a suitable courier - citylink, ups, parcelforce. some good and bad views on yodel, i found them ok. They are cheaper to do it that way, but hassle of measuring up parcel and waiting for courier to arrive. Post office isnt to bad - a bit more expensive, but can be more convenient to drop off if near to one

paisley don't give a collection time, so you have to be in all day, and if you're not for 5 minutes, that's when they come. Bike was damaged too
