Anyone tried sending a frame from UK to Europe/Scandinavia?
Royal Mail only list prices for up to 2 kg so how to please?

Hi. I think you need to get an accurate price from the post office. I've just got a price for a bike sized box weighing 18kg to Denmark, as an example, and the price was £110. senditnow is good for UK only parcels.

Above 2kg you need to go with parcelfarce who charge by "volumetric weight" which is a simple of way of saying "tell us whether your parcel is heavy or large and we'll charge you as much as we can"

Having said that, if you gave me a letter and offered me 35p to deliver it to Yorkshire within 2 days, I'd tell you to bugger off!

got a Parcelforce quote of £56 to send frame/fork to Denmark. Max £150 compensation (not enough) & not tracked. Sounds a lot to me.
