Oh, lets get the ball rolling with an question which I'd like to know the answer too.
How much does it cost to send a complete bike in a box to / from a UK address, and who's best, will do home collection etc. I've got a bike box but its big (more than 1.5m long), what size should I be looking at cutting it down to so that it'll be accepted?
senditnow.com are brilliant for that as they dont ask for dimensions .
they only ask for weight .
talking to the driver , he said that as long as it can be carried by one person it is ok .
they are a cheap service of Parcel Force . £12 for a 24h delivery is good .
The other strong point of senditnow is that you can book collection within a 2 hour slot .
parcel2go used to be my fav but they are limited on dimensions and the time they give you for collection is 9 till 5 , not ideal . but it is a bit cheaper .
