    Hi there,

    I'm looking for a very cheap courier, that offers some form of insurance. It is to send two Wii Fits that I have sold on eBay to mainland UK. (I am also in the UK).

    I have been to some sites that you can deal with that give you a quote from all the different couriers and you book through the site, however I have never heard of these sites before, and would prefer ordering it through the actual couriers website. Some prices are laughable.... UPS, Lynx and TNT seem to be the most expensive.

    Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm looking for something less than £10.

    First class would be around £12, Standard Pacels isn't much cheaper.

    I don't think you're going to be able to do much better than that.

    I ended up just using Royal Mail. They got to their destination without a hitch.
