What's even more amazing is the amount for postage - 90.00 - we sent a 30kg parcel late last year for 25.00 (by courier) - it was very heavy and a very odd shape - so struggling to understand why this is so much - I'm assuming the self righting gas would need to be empty for the courier to collect - perhaps due to this it needs special arrangements??

I think its more to do with the size of it. Health and safety porobably means you need two people to lift it at both ends of the journey.

Ahhh okay - I've probably underestimated how much it weighs

Its to do with whether you can get your hands round it to carry it, could be really light but if its too big they have you over a barrel.

Poor courier nearly put his back out with that winch, lol.

Poor bugger - it's very odd as we had to state the parcel size and weight - you'd think form that - over 20kg's - they would work out it was a bit on the heavy side

I priced up sending a console to the southcoast. Can't remember exactly but it was 100+ even though it weighed the same as a nits nickers!

Bugger that is expensive - we must have got off lightly with the winch

Can't lift the console on your own due to the dimensions so it goes up again.
