    I think that the postage goes on the weight of the package so if you ask what the charges are for different weights then you could work it out from there.

    Hi there

    I get quite a few bits and pieces from GB through the mail, prices don't seem too exhorbitant!

    If you have a look at www.royalmail.com there are sections on there which cover sending parcels. Over a certain weight it'll go by ParcelForce (the same as Royal Mail only different :rolleyes: ), or if smaller, lighter packets then 2nd class would be the cheapest. I think usually it's more economical to send one big parcel rather than a number of smaller ones.

    HTH

    You will sometimes find that the PO are more helpful if you take in a parcel and ask about the cheapest way to send it. But then again, some POs are a lot more friendly and helpful than others, so sometimes it pays to find a good one and go there if it's not too difficult! Although sometimes just finding one which hasn't been shut is hard enough!

    For goodness sake, whatever you do, don't send your parcel with a mainland courier to hand over to Famac! They are so bad, your recipients will be lucky if the parcels arrive in 6 weeks! To give you an idea of user dissatisfaction, have a look at THIS THREAD

    send them through royal mail, no different to sending from say london to scotland . Northern Ireland is still withing the UK. I send parcels from N Ireland to England all the time as I am selling a lot on ebay and prices for postage can be found on www.postoffice.co.uk
