Parcelforce will deliver anything they can get they're arms around. BMC advised me the console was around 20KG but they get a good rate for delivery due to there contract.
TNT worked on cubic mass and so did DHL. DHL wouldn't take it full stop, TNT gave me the price and if the buyer wanted to pay that much I'd have taken it myself for 20 quid less! Same goes for every other courier.
