i used parcel broker (.co.uk?) last time, when I bought a thicknesser. I have had a couple of heavy items, but not quite that much- thicknesser was high 30's I think. Try a couple of brokers, like that one, or parcel 2 go- it will be much cheaper if it can go by courier rather than pallet rate.
Yeah i know. It is only 140cm in length. TNT was over £120. Thats why im a bit sceptical at £22. Its not needed quite yet, next week sometime, so will try it and see! Will let you know.
Thanks very much for the help!
