This is something I've only just come across but yet it's something everyone should know about. In the past I've almost always used the Royal mail for posting items i've sold on Ebay and costs I always thought were reasonable although I always dreaded posting something heavy as I knew the cost would be a lot and it might put buyers off bidding! Then I came across another option - COURIER! Now you might think that using a courier is only for businesses or companies and hat you have to set up an account and it might all seem a bit long winded. There is however an option - and NO I DON'T WORK FOR THIS COMPANY!!!!
Parcel 2 Go is a place where you can get quotes on posting items large and small and the best thing is that on almost every occasion I've found it considerably cheaper than using Royal Mail AND they collect from you!!!
All you need to do is register with them which takes ony a couple of minutes and you're away. Give them a try the next time you need to sell something on Ebay or indeed post anything other then a letter or small packet - get a quote first and then you'll know how much P&P will be so when it sells you'll be able to send it knowing just how much it'll be.
